Nuance has announced the 2012 Mobile Clinician Voice Challenge, running through February 3rd. All healthcare developers are called to voice-enable mobile or web-based apps using the company’s voice recognition technology.
Nuance is trying to identify the most innovative uses of voice recognition, and is offering over $25,000 worth of prizes. Developers are welcome to demonstrate how voice interactions with a mobile healthcare app can enhance clinicians’ experience, improve workflow and patient care.
“The 2012 Mobile Clinician Voice Challenge is all about innovation. We see tremendous opportunity in healthcare to extend the value of Nuance’s voice technologies beyond traditional clinical documentation and the caregiver workstation to the mobile device,” said Janet Dillione, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Healthcare. “Our hope is that by providing developers with access to Nuance’s cloud-based, medical speech recognition platform, we’ll see advancements for the clinical workflow that we haven’t yet seen or perhaps even thought of before.”
The 2012 Mobile Clinician Voice Challenge will provide developers with access to the Nuance Healthcare Development Platform/ The Platform supports many OS and devices and will allow developers to embed the SpeechAnywhere services into healthcare app. The challenge is open to all developers, independent software vendors, and internal development teams within the United States. The entries in the challenge will be judged on criteria such as Innovation, Workflow, Visual Appeal, Functional Implementation, Workflow and Patient Care Benefits.
Non-developers can also take part in the challenge by tweeting to win an Apple iPad 2 or an official 2012 Mobile Clinician Voice Challenge t-shirt. For more information or to enter the 2012 Mobile Clinician Voice Challenge, please visit http://www.nuancehealthcare.com/2012mobilechallenge
