Nuance Closes Acquisition Of Transcend

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that the company has closed the acquisition of Transcend Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRCR), a leading provider of medical transcription and speech editing services.

The combination of Nuance and Transcend will significantly improve the way patient data is captured, processed and used across the small- to mid-size hospital market, which comprises approximately 90 percent of hospitals in the U.S. Nuance will build upon Transcend’s market leadership among this group of hospitals, expanding its customer base through the delivery of voice-enabled and Clinical Language Understanding-powered (CLU) solutions that help healthcare organizations of all sizes achieve Meaningful Use and accelerate the transition to ICD-10.

The combined company’s offering will aid healthcare organizations’ chief financial officers to lower costs associated with the administration and management of traditional clinical documentation and medical transcription processes, allowing them to prioritize core business activities, financial goals and patient care initiatives.

The company will provide guidance on the financial impact of the acquisition in conjunction with its second quarter 2012 earnings release on May 10th.
