Nuance Partners with Imprivata

Imprivata, a healthcare IT security company, announced that its Imprivata Cortext secure communications platform now supports clinical speech recognition through the Dragon Medical One cloud platform from Nuance Communications.

Dragon Medical embedded in Imprivata Cortext offers a speaker-adaptive engine, custom vocabularies, auto-texts and templates, built-in visualization and feedback, voice navigation and correction, and anytime, anywhere access. With a robust medical dictionary and specialty language models designed for healthcare, providers can speak at their own pace and dictate the latest medical terms and phrases at more than 150 words per minute.

"We're excited about the productivity and financial benefits that physicians will receive from tying Dragon Medical One into our Imprivata Cortext application for secure communications," said John Lucabaugh, vice president of health information management at Summit Health, in a statement. "Our goal is to give back critical time to our providers who are extremely busy with everything they have to do, so that they can care for their patients."

"Clinicians want technology that is easy to use and that gives them more time back in their day to spend with patients," said Ed Gaudet, general manager for the Imprivata Cortext Product Line, in a statement. "By assuring that complex medical terminology is recognized quickly and accurately and communicated securely from anywhere, speech-to-text functionality greatly improves clinician productivity and therefore benefits patients and the entire healthcare enterprise."

"Physicians spend 43 percent of their workdays on documentation, and they are increasingly frustrated with how it cuts into their time," said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of clinical documentation at Nuance, in a statement. "Up to 500,000 clinicians use Nuance healthcare solutions to speak their notes today, and it's safe to bet most are already using a mobile device to text while at work. Bringing those two natural habits and technologies together in a safe, secure approach fits their workflow and benefits both physicians and patients."
