Staff - Print  | 

In a recent press release, Nuance Communications, Inc. and Epic announced that the companies have partnered to deliver computer-assisted physician documentation (CAPD) capabilities embedded within EpicĀ®.

 The Epic NoteReader CDI solution leverages artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities found in Nuance CAPD technology to automatically provide real-time clinical documentation improvement (CDI) feedback to physicians at the point of care. This improves severity-adjusted quality scores and captures appropriate reimbursement and risk adjustment factors that are critical to proper care and management of patients.

By electronically analyzing all relevant patient notes with deep learning and natural language understanding, Nuance's CAPD technology automatically identifies clinical indicators in a patient's medical record and advises the physician in real-time when there is important missing information that needs to be clarified. The Epic NoteReader CDI module works with Nuance's latest AI technology to help accurately describe the quality of care provided, reflecting accurate patient acuity with the goal of reducing retrospective coding queries.

"We've worked with Nuance for years to embed cool voice innovations into clinical workflows. This new AI twist provides another level of wow," said Carl Dvorak, president, Epic.
