Now more than ever, physicians are flooded with complex technologies and new demands that are taking them further and further away from their patients. In response, Nuance has announced that the company is putting its weight behind a campaign designed to address critical issues facing physicians today and help bring them back to the “art of medicine” – starting with a panel of physician leaders including Beth Israel’s John Halamka, the AMA’s Steven Stack and Mass General’s Keith Dryer.
The panel will be held Thursday, March 27th, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at Boston’s W Hotel.
“Technology plays an integral role in moving healthcare toward a value-based system, but this digital transformation is also forcing physicians to spend more time interacting with software and less time with their patients,” said Janet Dillione, executive vice president and general manager of Nuance Communications. “This important and timely endeavor is designed to help physicians better connect with patients and return to the art of medicine in a digital world.”
mHealthWatch has also learned that to kick off the campaign, Nuance is offering an Art of Medicine eGuide, which offers insights from clinical leaders around how healthcare technology needs to work better for physicians and ultimately, patients.
