Nuance Joins athenahealth Marketplace, Extending Access to Automated Clinic Documentation
Nuance Communications, Inc. has joined athenahealth Marketplace, making the company’s Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience (DAX) ambient clinical intelligence solution available to the health system’s network of providers.
Nuance DAX – including API integration with athenaClinicals, athenahealth's electronic health records solution – aims to lessen administrative workloads that lead to clinician burnout, increase access to care for patients, and improve healthcare outcomes with clinical documentation that writes itself.
The addition of Nuance DAX to the athenahealth Marketplace will make Nuance's ambient AI solution more widely accessible to athenahealth's broad customer base of physicians across the United States. Nuance DAX securely captures and contextualizes physician-patient conversations during virtual and in-person exams, reducing the time and effort needed to document patient care. Health systems nationwide are deploying Nuance DAX and Nuance Dragon Medical One to help clinicians meet elevated demands for healthcare services amidst stafﬁng shortages, clinician burnout, and an aging U.S. population.
"The reach of athenahealth's Marketplace program, coupled with developing an integration with athenaClinicals, can help accelerate adoption of Nuance DAX across the country," said Diana Nole, executive vice president and general manager of the healthcare division at Nuance. "It's a very timely and relevant partnership given the increasing patient volumes, ﬁnancial pressures, and levels of physician burnout that hospitals and providers are facing after more than two years of the pandemic. Extending the beneﬁts of ambient AI to more physicians can pay multiple dividends in the form of better physician and patient experiences and healthcare outcomes."
athenahealth is a network-enabled, results-oriented software and services company that offers medical record, revenue cycle, patient engagement, and care coordination services for ambulatory and hospital clients nationwide. The company's vision is to build a thriving ecosystem that delivers accessible, high-quality, and sustainable healthcare for all.
