Nuance, Microsoft expand availability of clinician note-taking AI


Artificial intelligence software developed by Nuance and Microsoft to listen to patient-physician conversations and automatically compile them into coherent reports is now available to the general market, the collaborators announced Feb. 24.

The Nuance Dragon Ambient Experience solution integrates directly into hospitals' and health systems' existing EHR systems and is hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. It uses conversational AI to capture and contextualize multiparty discussions, then arrange them into readable clinical documentation.

The DAX solution is already used by healthcare organizations such as Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Novant Health, Chicago-based Rush University Medical Center and St. Louis-based SSM Health. With this week's news, it will now be available to many more organizations, and with an accelerated delivery schedule.

"It is essential to develop technology that empowers clinicians so that they can get back to doing what they trained for and love. It is equally important that we return to patients their doctors' undivided attention," Joe Petro, CTO of Nuance, said in the announcement. "Our development of Nuance DAX began with a deep understanding of how doctors need and want to work. We've delivered an unobtrusive solution that is as present and available as the light in the exam room — and already producing meaningful results for clinicians and their patients."
