Wellspan Health's AI transcribing tech reduces clinical documentation by 50%

York, Pa.-based Wellspan Health is using Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, an AI voice-activated technology, to help its physicians automatically transcribe medical visit notes.

The technology was piloted at more than 75 providers and has recently expanded to an additional 200 physicians in Wellspan Health's primary care network and specialty practices, according to a May 31 press release. The technology has been able to reduce physician documentation time by roughly 50 percent. 

According to the health system, the technology is also helping prevent burnout as physicians can focus on patient care rather than focus on typing. 

Nuance, the company behind the AI speech recognition technology, was acquired by Microsoft for $19.7 billion on March 7.
