Nuance and Microsoft working on conversational AI for EMR documentation

Dragon Medical developer Nuance Communications has joined forces with Microsoft to bring the concept of ambient clinical intelligence (ACI) to the medical sector, planning to introduce an initial product early next year for specialist doctors.

ACI promises to allow easier clinical documentation and a reduction in doctor burnout by using speech recognition and natural language processing to auto-populate patients' medical records during consultations.
