Nuance Communications, Inc. has helped physicians at Edward-Elmhurst Health, save up to two hours per shift using Nuance's cloud-based clinical speech recognition solution. Dragon Medical One was deployed to physicians in more than 100 facilities to streamline clinical documentation, while delivering a consistent voice experience and supporting existing clinical workflows regardless of where they see patients. In addition, Dragon Medical Analytics provides immediate clinical and performance data and insights for measuring and tracking clinician adoption and use within the organization, optimizing use of the technology in patient care delivery.

The Dragon Medical One cloud-based platform was critical to bringing together physicians and other care givers in a cohesive documentation strategy to support the merger between the suburban Chicago Edward Hospital and Elmhurst Hospital. The Nuance solution helped increase physician EHR adoption and minimize installation and ongoing maintenance efforts and costs while significantly improving clinician productivity.

In addition to the time savings from dictating notes, when clinicians start using and become proficient with more advanced productivity tools in Dragon Medical One, they can save an additional three hours per physician per month getting a high quality note in even less time. These efficiency gains allow them to see more patients, finish and share documentation immediately, and increase the overall quality of the patient experience.

Dragon Medical Analytics

One of the advantages of Nuance's cloud offering is easy access to analytics that allow hospitals and individual physicians to see how well they are doing compared to other physicians with clinical documentation. In addition, Nuance's Client Success Organization uses these same analytics to proactively work with clients to drive adoption and efficiency and to help clients understand and leverage data to monitor progress and reach their goals. At Edward-Elmhurst Health, they found sharing stats, such as you saved 5 minutes very helpful in reinforcing ease of use with physicians while also identifying opportunities for improvement in documentation quality. Dragon Medical Analytics dashboards highlighted top users and productivity statistics, providing detailed metrics about the effort clinicians put into creating their documentation, as well as speech recognition savings estimates in terms of time and costs at a glance.

Nuance revitalizes the clinician's experience using clinical documentation solutions to help capture and communicate the patient story more naturally and efficiently freeing clinicians to focus on caring for patients.
