Vincari Partners with Nuance to Offer Surgical Documentation Solution

Vincari has signed a reseller agreement with Nuance Communications, allowing Nuance to sell the Vincari Surgical Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) solution, expanding Nuance's own CAPD offerings to the surgical suite.

The Vincari offering complements Nuance's artificial intelligence (AI)-powered offerings and provides a guided workflow experience designed to address the unique administrative challenges surgeons and proceduralists face.

The Vincari Surgical CAPD solution helps surgeons capture details at the point of care and translates those voice records into clinical notes. It provides an intelligent workflow design tailored to surgeons' specific needs, automatically prompting them when clarifications are needed to satisfy regulatory guidelines and helping eliminate retrospective queries and delays. In less than 90 seconds, a highly detailed and compliant report is created and made immediately available in the electronic health record (EHR) for the entire care team. A copy is distributed to referring physician practices, and an automated charge capture report is sent to the surgeon's practice for coding and billing purposes.

"Tailored to their individual style and needs, Vincari surgeons can capture compliant documentation quickly after a procedure, said Dr. Lucian Newman, chief medical officer at Vincari and a practicing general surgeon, in a statement. "Through this more efficient documentation and coding process, health systems will be able to receive appropriate quality ratings and reimbursement with documentation that accurately captures the level of care provided."

Powered by artificial intelligence, Vincari Surgical CAPD predicts surgeons' documentation habits based on learned patterns and uses available patient information to streamline the clinical documentation and coding process, all while continuously adapting to evolving documentation requirements. It also provides quick access to daily surgery schedules and patient lists on their mobile devices. Vincari Surgical CAPD also allows surgeons to analyze program performance through case tracking.

"From the moment a surgeon begins planning their day to the distribution of a complaint report, the Vincari Surgical CAPD solution enables a holistic approach to quality documentation backed by the power of speech and artificial intelligence," said Michael Clark, senior vice president of clinical documentation solutions at Nuance, in a statement. "Adding the Vincari offering to our Nuance CAPD portfolio delivers a better clinical documentation experience, which means more time for patient care, more satisfied physicians, and improved financial outcomes for health systems."
