62% of healthcare orgs use speech recognition tools: 6 insights into tech adoption

Although 62 percent of healthcare professionals say they already use speech recognition tools in their EHRs, 23 percent said they have no plans to ever adopt the tech, according to a Reaction Data survey.

The research group spoke with 300 physicians across numerous specialties including pediatrics, family medicine and emergency medicine about their use of speech recognition tools in the EHR.

Here are five survey highlights:

1. Most respondents using speech recognition tools have deployed solutions from Nuance (86 percent), followed by M*Modal (12 percent) and IBM (2 percent).

2. The majority of respondents (75 percent) reported having a seamless integration between their solution and their EHR.

3. Overall, Nuance appears to integrate most seamlessly with an EHR, regardless of vendor. However, those with a Cerner EHR report the easiest Nuance integration (86 percent), followed by those using Epic (75 percent).

4. When asked how likely they are to recommend a speech recognition tool, 61 percent said they were likely to recommend one, 16 percent said they were unlikely to recommend one and 23 percent said they were neutral.

5. When asked whether they plan to replace their speech recognition vendor, the majority of respondents said they don't intend to switch vendors (97 percent).
