On Wednesday, Nuance Communications formally announced Dragon Medical One.
According to a statement shared with MHW, the offering is a universal and secure cloud-based platform that provides unified voice-driven clinical documentation for physicians, whether they are dictating into electronic health records (EHR) or a growing list of mobile productivity apps.
Nuance says that for the first time, this personalized and consistent experience extends beyond the current EHR capabilities to include apps physicians’ use every day including secure communication and messaging apps, such as those from Care Thread, Doc Halo, and Imprivata.
In addition, Dragon Medical One supports the TigerText developer platform, TigerConnect, voice-enabling apps for care coordination, population health, telemedicine and drug adherence. This demonstrates Nuance’s continuing effort to improve physicians’ relationships with technology, freeing them to focus on patients.
“Physicians spend nearly half of their day in front of a computer, and 88 percent report that they are burnt out, citing documentation burdens as a top concern,” said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager for Dragon and clinical documentation at Nuance. “Dragon Medical One helps them reduce documentation time in the EHR, and now can deliver the same benefits across the many other clinical productivity tools they use every day, reducing the total documentation time and allowing them to spend more time with patients.”
