What customers are saying
With Dragon Medical Direct, the time our trained and optimized providers spend in the note authoring pages is one‑sixth the Cerner average.
We saw our physicians increase their documentation efficiency with speech recognition. It made sense to offer our nurses the solution as well, with the idea it would empower them to tackle pressing documentation responsibilities.
Dr. Paul Clark
Chief Medical Information Office
We were looking for a scalable, enterprise‑wide clinical documentation solution. Nuance not only met that criteria but also could provide a strong technology foundation to improve provider efficiency and enable timely documentation in the patient record.
Chief Information Security Officer
We took a look at the bigger picture of voice recognition technologies and discovered how evidence‑based guidelines and new therapies are exploding in this space, and we found that only Nuance is on the leading edge of this trend toward higher‑order voice recognition solutions.
Executive Director of Information Management
We're excited about Dragon Medical Direct and being able to tie that into our Imprivata Cortext application for secure texting. We're really hoping to be able to give back a little bit of time to our providers who are super busy with everything that they have to do, so that they can care for their patients.
Vice President, Health Information Management Summit Health
In terms of actually making a difference, so much of that has to happen from provider to provider in care transitions and voice is a big part of that. The notes are more complete, there’s more information there, they actually say something instead of just this cookie‑cutter template where every note can look the same..
Yeaman and Associates
Physicians are more mobile than ever, both inside and outside the hospital. There is also an increased need for patient stories to become immediately available. Integrating Nuance Dragon Medical Direct with our Cerner physician documentation tool has enabled us to meet both of these needs.
Ehab Hanna, MD, FHM
Chief Medical Information Officer
Universal Health Services (UHS), Inc
This workflow has been essential for us. Now, when the next physician arrives to see the patient, even a few minutes later, the first physician’s notes are already available in the chart for review.
