Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, however, Nuance will maintain a minority share in DeliverHealth and support DeliverHealth's plans for new and enhanced transcription and EHR offerings.
"Our leadership team and more than 2,000 skilled employees have worked together for years to improve physician and patient satisfaction while boosting the bottom line as healthcare systems evolve and accelerate their digital transitions," said DeliverHealth CEO Michael Clark in a statement. "Over the last year, in particular, medical practices and hospitals have been scrambling to recover, adapt, and grow. That means increased complexity in their responsibilities.
"The daily tasks of healthcare teams can feel overwhelming, and too often burnout is decimating staffs," Clark added. "Our job at DeliverHealth is to simplify the complexities, remove technology barriers to prioritize patients over technology, and act as an extension of healthcare providers so they have more time to focus on patient care."
DeliverHealth plans to invest in and expand its services for revenue cycle automation, clinical documentation improvement, and provider and patient support services.
