Health Systems Switching to Nuance to Improve Radiology Reporting, Analysis and Image Sharing
Nuance’s Advanced Radiology Solutions Help Coordinated Care Health Network Drive Cost Savings for HIE Members
BURLINGTON, Mass., August 17, 2017 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced that nine U.S. healthcare organizations have recently chosen Nuance solutions to replace incumbent radiology solutions to facilitate more effective collaboration and deliver more complete, timely and higher quality reporting. In addition to best-in-class reporting, Nuance’s solutions feature image exchange, workflow orchestration and advanced analytics capabilities that allow physicians to analyze reports and mine data to gain new insights and make decisions more efficiently.
Capital Health, City of Hope, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, Desert Radiology, LRGHealthcare, Medical University of South Carolina, Northeast Georgia Health System, Orion/Tower Imaging and Tennova Healthcare are representative organizations that have recently chosen Nuance to replace existing radiology solutions with Nuance’s advanced diagnostic solutions, medical imaging exchange capabilities and clinical analytics to facilitate the transition to value based care.
Coordinated Care Health Network (CCHN), Oklahoma’s largest health information exchange (HIE) and a Nuance partner, is an example of how Nuance cloud-based technology can drive patient, clinical and economic outcomes. CCHN sought to disrupt the current HIE industry by providing its 150 subscribing members with more than just the ability to exchange data/images – they wanted to improve awareness across different care locations. With Nuance, clinicians can obtain greater insights into patients’ imaging history, automatically serve up timely, patient-specific information through AI innovation, to make more appropriate clinical decisions. With Nuance PowerShare at the foundation – organizations in the CCHN HIE are now realizing up to 80% savings over previous costs for sharing data across the HIE, while significantly improving care decisions, workflow and productivity.
“At a time when there is mounting industry pressure to prove value and increase efficiency, Nuance’s suite of solutions enables our radiologists to simultaneously enhance patient care, manage their workload and meet documentation requirements. In fact, we chose Nuance PowerShare because of its proven track record to immediately deliver time and value back to our clinicians,” said Dr. Brian Yeaman, chief executive and co-founder of CCHN. “Nuance’s medical imaging solutions have helped us rewrite the playbook on information sharing among member organizations. The sophisticated integration capabilities and practical ease-of-use features allow our providers to devote more time to their primary mission – patient care.”
