“What makes Nuance special is our unparalleled commitment across the organization to help drive better clinical and financial outcomes for our clients through clinical documentation that accurately reflects the conditions of their patients and the clinical intent of the physicians who care for them, said Satish Maripuri, executive vice president and general manager of the Healthcare Division, Nuance. “Nuance’s leadership in the HCI 100 stems from our solutions that revitalize the clinician experience and deliver critical outcomes to the organization to help them both thrive in a dynamic and challenging industry.”

“Clinicians have been frustrated with EHRs, which have copious amounts of data but very little information of context, priorities, or a sense of certainty. Nuance has helped us insert back into the record a great deal of spoken language without having to give up the underlying data. Data and language shouldn’t be in competition,” says Hal Baker, MD, FACP, senior vice president, clinical improvement, and chief information officer (CIO), WellSpan Health. Baker has been a long time client of Nuance solutions, helping teams design and deliver solutions that meet the current and future needs of healthcare providers.
