Nuance Communications Inc announced that 100 hospitals and radiology practices–­50 new and 50 existing customers­–have converted to the latest PowerScribe 360 platform in the last three months.

­Nuance’s PowerScribe 360 Reporting platform­ helps drive operational efficiencies while reducing costs and improving patient outcomes. Powered by Nuance’s Dragon Medical speech recognition, the system helps radiologists efficiently create actionable, structured reports that equip referring clinicians with the timely information needed to improve patient care.

With PowerScribe 360, radiologists dictate a report in the workflow that works best for them and navigate the report simply by using their voice. In real-time, the Clinical Language Understanding (CLU) technology extracts specific, structured clinical information within the narrative report as required for discrete data capture in line with Meaningful Use.
Today, more than 50% of all radiology reports created in the United States annually are generated using Nuance technology. In addition, Nuance has converted more than 50 current customers to the latest PowerScribe 360 platform in the last 90 days, ­partnering with them in the transition to next generation, value-based care.
