Broken foot or something more serious?

Structured data alone isn’t enough to understand a patient’s unique story. Our solutions include a Clinical Language Understanding (CLU) engine, which combines both narrative and structured data from EHR to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.

Narrative Data

The patient is a 74-year-old female who presents with a complaint of fall, she woke up this morning and had a donut for breakfast instead of her usual cheese bagel, while eating breakfast she heard the phone ringing in the upstairs bedroom. She ran upstairs to get it. She felt dizzy and fell down the stairs and broke her left foot.

Structured Data
  • The occurrence was one hour prior to arrival
  • The course of pain is constant
  • Location of pain: Left foot
  • Location of bleeding: None
  • Assessment: Broken Left Foot

“Now that we can capture the ‘story’ of our treatment, the patient record is much richer and more meaningful during handovers to colleagues.” More from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital

The NHS in England is facing an unprecedented financial challenge following the longest period of constrained funding that it has ever faced. It is widely acknowledged that the NHS is facing a funding gap of £30 billion by 2020/21, with £8billion promised by the Government by 2020/21 and a further £22 billion expected to come from efficiency savings. (The state of NHS finances and the £22bn efficiency challenge)

Read Studies have shown that doctors and nurses can spend up to 50% of their day on clinical documentation processes rather than with patients. Nuance Healthcare can help you alleviate clinical documentation workload on healthcare professionals. Allowing the NHS workforce to get back to delivering patient care while at the same time improving the quality of clinical documentation and reducing turn-around of letters, referrals and discharge notes.

Healthcare has always been based on the doctor-patient interaction but as the adoption of electronic patient records increases the administration burden for the doctor associated with the capture, understanding and sharing of the data can get in the way of maintaining the doctor patient relationship and capture of the whole patient story. Nuance Healthcare helps clinicians document the patient’s story quickly, convenientlyand easily with voice increasing speed and navigation of the EHR.

“Thirty minutes extra per day = one minute extra per routine patient seen, or three extra emergency patients dealt with, or six conversations with partners and staff, or perhaps time to sit down for lunch!” (Nuance Healthcare Survey, 2014 of NHS clinicians “What would you do with an extra 30 minutes per day?”)
