Partnership brings voice-enabled radiology reporting to hospitals.
Nuance Communications and Intelerad Medical Systems announced a reseller agreement in which Intelerad will now offer Nuance's voice-enabled radiology offering, Powerscribe 360 | Reporting, alongside its medical imaging solutions.
The agreement will enable Intelerad's more than 1,000 imaging center and community hospital customer sites to deploy speech recognition in an effort to establish best practices for reading and reporting patient imaging results.
Through the partnership, Intelerad customers can now use the same speech technology that is already used to create nearly half of all radiology exams in the U.S. Intelerad's solutions include ambulatory PACS, including IntelePACS, InteleRIS, InteleOne, and the recently launched Flow Enterprise Diagnostics Solution.
"Today, radiologists face unprecedented scrutiny and competition, so technology is oftentimes a factor that differentiates practices," said Janet Dillione, executive vice president and general manager of Nuance Healthcare, in a statement. "We are excited to partner with Intelerad because of the important role it plays in the medical imaging market. Together, we'll build upon our shared commitment to arm radiologists with the tools they need to adjust to changing workplace dynamics."
