BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 22, 2019 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) an industry-leading provider of AI-powered solutions, today announced it has expanded into the surgical market with the Nuance Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) solution. The specialty-specific solution empowers surgeons and care teams to efficiently document pre- and post-operatively and code accurately at the point of care, while empowering organizations to meet the many regulatory and quality requirements affecting the surgical landscape today.
“Without the proper technology in place to ensure accurate, timely and complete documentation, it’s challenging for surgeons and proceduralists to practice at the top of their licenses and often contributes to risk in the continuum of care, delayed billing and additional costs for organizations,” said Michael Clark, SVP, GM, Provider Solutions, Nuance. “The Nuance Surgical CAPD solution provides the most innovative, compliant and easy-to-use experience for both patients in the transition of care, and providers on the broader care team, while ensuring appropriate reimbursement across acute and ambulatory care settings.”
Using artificial intelligence, the solution streamlines operative reporting and procedural note documentation in real-time, improving documentation quality, and rendering clinical guidance with customizable workflows. The Nuance Surgical CAPD solution guides surgeons through the documentation process by providing the relevant, episodic in-workflow guidance needed to capture the required level of specificity and appropriate reimbursement in a complex specialty.
Nearly 2,000 surgeons across the United States are already generating reports with the Nuance Surgical CAPD solution today, including North Mississippi Ambulatory Surgical Center in Tupelo, Miss. Prior to implementing the Nuance solution, the organization was in search of an efficient and economical solution that could produce more detailed notes and records, while reducing documentation expenses and decreasing days in accounts receivable (A/R).
“We were looking to increase surgeon efficiency, convenience and mobility during documentation and needed to address high transcription costs and improving A/R across the board,” said Charlie Tidwell, Medical Records Supervisor, North Mississippi Ambulatory Surgical Center. “Within a year of adopting Nuance’s Surgical CAPD solution, we were able to reduce documentation expenses by more than $40,000 and reduced A/R by an average of eight days.”
