750 Developers Enhance Health IT Usability And Clinician Productivity With Nuance

Stocks in this article: NUAN

Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced more than 750 developers in numerous countries have joined its healthcare developer community. This milestone coincides with enhancements to Nuance’s 360 | SpeechAnywhere Services, which provides unparalleled improvements in accuracy and increased customization of medical vocabularies. These latest enhancements to Nuance’s cloud-based speech recognition services allow developers to easily integrate the fastest, most reliable medical speech recognition with their healthcare applications.

“Nuance is making technology easier for clinicians, moving beyond keyboards and voice commands to clinical language understanding and intelligent systems,” said Janet Dillione, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance. “A crucial element of this involves partnering with innovative healthcare developers to create applications that are easy to use and drive productivity so clinicians can devote more time to the patient interaction and care plan.”

Enhancing Electronic Health Record Usability and Productivity

As government and the healthcare industry look to transition to value-based care, emphasis is being placed on engaging developers, entrepreneurs and startups to drive innovation and, in effect, inspire real change in the way care is provided today. One key pain point that Nuance and its partners are addressing is helping clinicians more readily access and use information in electronic health records (EHR).

Today, leading EHR vendors and emerging developer partners are integrating speech and clinical language understanding technology with their solutions to address usability and productivity frustrations. A recent AmericanEHR survey found that physician EHR satisfaction dropped from 2010 to 2012. In addition, the Department of Veterans Affairs recently published a study that explored changes that need to be made in next-generation EHRs, including better integration of structured data capture with a narrative style of documentation and enhanced usability. The study also suggested that EHRs should be more customized and tailored to clinicians' preferences and practices. Nuance partners, like Lightning Charts and Modernizing Medicine are driving the creation of next-generation, specialty-specific EHRs.

“The combination of Modernizing Medicine’s touch-based system and Nuance's voice-command functionality enables us to achieve maximum productivity, as it eliminates the need to type altogether. In a high volume practice like ours, that’s invaluable,” said Kimball Silverton, DO and dermatologist, Silverton Skin Institute.
