Dragon Medical solutions for nursing documentation and record keeping

Smart nursing with Nuance’s clinical documentation in nursing record keeping

Record keeping for nurses needs to be high quality, timely and standardised with inbuilt levels of security, governance and control as appropriate for each patient scenario. Nuance speech recognition solutions for clinical documentation help digitise the process of record keeping for the nursing workforce, freeing up valuable time for patient care.

Do more with less

Faced with an aging population in need of dedicated medical care and a NHS budget deficit of more than £22bn, the healthcare sector is striving to do 'more with less'. Increasingly it’s our nurses who are taking the strain.

Do better with less

Nurses must handle increased workload with a wider scope, whilst still being able to provide individual patients with an exemplary level of care.

Digitising the NHS

The government's plan for a paperless NHS by 2018, and for all patient records to be digital, real-time and 'interoperable' by 2020, adds a considerable technological challenge to nursing record keeping requirements.

How we can help nurses keep up with good patient record keeping

Discover 8 key themes identified in nursing patient record keeping

Research and experience from our customers show that nearly 11 hours per week is needed to add to clinical documentation. 64% of the time is spent on narrative (‘unstructured’ notes) to capture the patient story well and only 36% on ‘structured notes’ (chose & click). More than 1 hour per day is spent by nurses searching for information that is insufficiently clear or not available in the documentation.
