UPMC and Nuance Communications, Inc., announced a multi-year, multi-million-dollar innovation collaboration, to deliver Medical Intelligence solutions. Representing a new class of innovation in the world of health information technology and natural language processing, Medical Intelligence solutions from Nuance and UPMC will transform clinical data into actionable information that can be used to drive smarter clinical, business and compliance decisions. Currently, most medical data is captured as unstructured free text and cannot be easily analyzed. Medical Intelligence will help healthcare providers and payors to optimize the value of electronic health records (EHRs), drive better patient care, improve quality reporting and compliance, and enhance financial performance.
This initiative will transform the way patient information is captured, understood and used by caregivers. The goal is to improve the quality and efficiency of care by creating a more complete and accurate electronic medical record, first across UPMC and then more broadly across the healthcare industry.
This website will frequently be updated with the findings of research, the different initiatives and possible speech and clinical language understanding (CLU)-enabled technologies that will become available as a result of the joint development agreement.
