Ambient clinical intelligence: The Future of Healthcare

Automatically document care with ambient clinical intelligence

Putting conversation back in the encounter with Clinical Documentation That Writes Itself™

Nuance and Microsoft partner to transform the doctor-patient experience. Learn more

Ambient clinical intelligence (ACI) — a comprehensive, AI-powered, voice-enabled solution — uses ambient sensing technology to securely listen to clinician-patient encounter conversations while offering workflow and knowledge automation to complement the EHR. Exceeding the capabilities of a virtual or on-site scribe, ACI promotes a better patient experience by accurately capturing and appropriately contextualizing every word of the patient encounter and automatically documenting patient care without taking the physician's attention off the patient.
