Reducing administrative burden for nurses
Clinical speech recognition technology helps alleviate the burden of clinical documentation for hospital staff.
Concerns & benefits
Nurses are cutting time spent on clinical documentation and freeing up more time for patient care with speech recognition
Nurses spend over 50% of their time on clinical documentation and 64% of that time is spent on narrative (‘unstructured’ notes). Nuance’s speech-to-text solutions reduce workload pressures, enabling patient notes to be accurately and efficiently captured in the electronic patient record (EPR) system and freeing up valuable time for patient care.
Research indicates that 85% of NHS healthcare professionals see the burden of clinical documentation as a significant contributor to burnout. AI-powered speech recognition is dramatically cutting the time clinicians spend on documentation, freeing them to spend more time on patient care.
AI-powered speech recognition and auto-text templates improve the quality of clinical notes and the richness of EPR data. Nuance speech recognition can also be used to navigate EPR systems more easily and to generate voice-driven content—including emails—outside the EPR.
With speech recognition, notes are dictated directly into the EPR, helping nurses reduce report turnaround time and deliver clinical notes faster to peers. This expediency improves the patient experience as clinic letters are completed faster.
In addition to reducing document turnaround times, speech recognition also helps hospitals and clinics to significantly reduce administrative costs and eliminates the need for expensive outsourced transcription services.
Dictation is at least 3x faster than typing and nurses are saving hours per week with clinical speech recognition.
89% of nurses surveyed at Concord Hospital said that use of speech recognition improved their job satisfaction.
Paediatric nurses at one NHS Trust estimated savings of at least 40 mins per patient per day with speech-to-text software.
