MEDRAD partners with Nuance to deliver the first interoperability solution for automating documentation of CT contrast-injection data by connecting the MEDRAD Certegra informatics platform and Nuance PowerScribe 360 Reporting. The installation debut will occur at the New York Mt. Sinai Medical Center (MSMC).

Nuance Healthcare, division of Nuance Communications, provides voice recognition and clinical understanding products that capture and convert the patient story into digital information.  Voice recognition healthcare solutions increase clinician satisfaction and HIT adoption.

As a result of the partnership with MEDRAD, customers of Nuance can auto-populate contrast-injection records into a radiology reporting system. In this way they can eliminate look-ups and dictation of contrast-injection records and drive better accuracy and consistency of documentation. “MEDRAD and Nuance have taken a significant step forward in enabling transparent and automated transfer of IV contrast-administration information in radiology,” said David S. Mendelson, M.D. FACR, Chief of Clinical Informatics MSMC. “Accurate contrast-injection records are automatically incorporated into the final radiology report -- delivering true interoperability that ensures the highest quality care for our patients.” Dr. Mendelson will detail MSMC’s technology implementation experience at the Nuance RSNA Booth 2816 on Tuesday, November 29 at 11:30 in Chicago.

Nuance’s product is recognized as “Best-in-KLAS” 2004-2010 for Speech Recognition. You can learn more at http://www.nuance.com/for-healthcare/index.htm
