A discharge summary that captures a patient’s course of treatment with 100% accuracy is useless for clinical decision making if the referring doctor gets it after the patient visit. A history and physical report supports acute-care evaluation and treatment only if it precedes a surgical or medical intervention. Healthcare is a process of many handoffs. Reducing turnaround time (TAT) at any one of those handoffs speeds the entire process and puts critical information in the hands of clinicians when they need it most.
"Report turnaround time is in the vicinity of 2:40 minutes - from beginning of dictation to sign-off."
Kaye Bonython, Imaging Informatics Programme Manager, HCA International, London. UK
"We are seeing an improvement in quality, a reduction in turnaround time and an increase in patient safety as a consequence of the integration. While the transition to speech recognition can be tough at the beginning, the rewards are enormous."
Melanie Hiorns, Consultant Radiologist and Chair of Radiology, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust, London, UK
Healthcare delivery today is a series of coordinated processes. If one part slows, the entire process lags. Nuance solutions work to reduce turnaround time drastically at primary junctures by allowing you to expedite clinical documentation with speech recognition.
