News : The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Selects Nuance
Burlington, MA, USA, May 31, 2016 -- Nuance Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: NUAN) announced that it has been selected by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC) for an enterprise-wide physician documentation initiative. This deployment is intended to provide a seamless speech-enabled clinical documentation experience, transition clinicians to real-time structured documentation, and deliver significant cost savings.
MD Anderson will replace multiple competitive systems with Nuance Dragon(R) Medical and Nuance PowerScribe(R) 360 across the enterprise as part of the deployment of an Epic(R) electronic health records (EHR) system. In addition, MDACC engaged Physician Technology Partners (PTP), now part of Nuance, to optimize physician documentation workflows using speech within the Epic EHR. The services were delivered by a team of physician liaisons and Dragon Medical specialists who prepared each physician via a simulation lab prior to using the Epic system live.
"We chose Nuance because the superior performance of its speech recognition solutions, its innovation roadmap, and deep integration with Epic were all vital to our successful migration to real-time documentation within the Epic EHR," said Dr. John Frenzel, chief medical information officer, MDACC. "These solutions are critical in driving our physicians’ adoption of new clinical documentation systems and increasing their overall satisfaction and efficiency. With Nuance, we were able to work with a single partner that brought both the speech recognition and natural language processing technology along with specialized Epic optimization services to support physicians with a more natural, efficient workflow."
"Our physicians have been extremely impressed with the accuracy of the Nuance speech recognition solutions," said Dr. Frenzel. "Even physicians where English is not their primary language are seeing outstanding performance when compared to the previous speech recognition system implemented. Overall, Dragon Medical and PowerScribe have worked very well and exceeded our physicians’ expectations, which is not an easy accomplishment."
