Nuance Partners with SCIENTIA PR

Nuance Communications is partnering with SCIENTIA Puerto Rico to expand access to Nuance's Dragon Medical One speech recognition solution for the island's physicians and nurses.

The collaboration brings Dragon Medical One's multilingual capabilities to English- and Spanish-speaking clinicians using the MEDITECH electronic health record (EHR) system.

As a result of the Nuance-SCIENTIA PR partnership, healthcare teams in Puerto Rico will have access to Dragon Medical One's advanced artificial intelligence-powered speech recognition technology, which is used by more than 550,000 physicians worldwide to navigate electronic health records and enter clinical notes up to five times faster than using a keyboard and mouse.

"Nuance and SCIENTIA PR are providing a solution to increase documentation quality and efficiency, reduce burnout, and increase job satisfaction so clinicians can practice at the top of their license and deliver the patient care to which they have devoted their lives," said Carlos Rodriguez, president and CEO of SCIENTIA PR, in a statement. "We are providing Dragon Medical One for health systems using the MEDITECH EHR but remain EHR-agnostic for hospitals using other systems that want to explore its proven benefits. Partnering with Nuance was a straightforward decision to help physicians and nurses in Puerto Rico manage the increased challenges of multiple natural disasters on top of the ongoing strains of the pandemic."

"Nuance's conversational AI technology empowers clinicians to fully engage patients during each visit with empathy, expertise, and personalized attention," said Mary Varghese Presti, senior vice president and general manager of Dragon Medical One at Nuance, in a statement. "Together, with SCIENTIA PR, we are providing a solution that helps clinicians in Puerto Rico enhance patient experiences while also improving the clinical documentation that drives care outcomes and clinicians' own quality of life and job satisfaction."
