Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

Using artificial intelligence to make a real difference

The increasing pressure to produce timely and accurate documentation demands a new generation of tools that complement patient care rather than compete with it. Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, Nuance solutions build on over three decades of clinical expertise to slash documentation time by up to 45 percent—while improving quality by 36 percent.

A history of innovation. A future of promise.

Avoid rework so you can check up on your patients, not your documentation

Hospital staff burnout is fueled by documentation rework and retrospective queries and burnout leads to an exponential rise in medical errors, denials, and increased costs.

Real-time feedback to ensure note quality and completeness

This Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) application is a seamless extension of your existing Dragon Medical One workflow, using algorithms to learn distinctive patterns, and facts and evidence to ask physicians the right question at the right time.

Once enabled, Dragon Medical Advisor analyzes notes in real time and suggests ways to make narratives stronger and more specific—for a more accurate reflection of patient conditions, diseases and resources used. It even prompts for patient safety indicators and increases diagnostic specificity to support accurate coding and outpatient risk-adjusted payment models. Use it to justify medical necessity decisions, accelerate billing, support better patient care and improve ICD-10 coding compliance and quality.

Real-time CAPD directly within the EHR

Value-based care demands that physicians document details, complications and comorbidities to capture the true severity and acuity of each patient. To help address gaps in clinical information immediately, embedded Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) analyzes all notes from a patient encounter and offers real-time clinical guidance to ensure the documentation is more reflective of each patient’s condition.

By improving communication between caregivers earlier in the patient’s stay, CAPD can impact treatment decisions and care—ultimately driving better quality outcomes, reporting and appropriate reimbursement. CAPD is optimized to work with your clinicians’ preferred EHR workflows, like Cerner Document Quality Review (DQR) and Epic NoteReader CDI.

Embedded CAPD has been shown to improve documentation of patients with extreme severity of illness by 36% and realize a $55 revenue improvement per patient admission with increased specificity. See details
