TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - May 07, 2014) -
Nextech, a leading provider of specialty-focused healthcare technology solutions for physician practices, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Nuance to offer advanced dictation functionalities for its EMR iPad® application to improve patient engagement and workflow. Nextech's application is also being featured as Nuance's mHealth "App-of-the-Month" during April. This recurring feature on Nuance's corporate blog showcases applications that are shaping the future of healthcare technology.
Nextech's mobile dictation offering, powered by Nuance, allows specialists to document care and securely transcribe patient information directly into the record using Nextech's EMR iPad® application. This enhanced dictation capability enables practices to improve the speed and accuracy of documentation, eliminates costs typically associated with the transcribing of physicians' notes and allows doctors to spend more one-on-one time with patients.
"We are excited to announce our collaboration with Nuance," says Christina Majeed, chief product officer at Nextech. "This couples the ease of use of our iPad® application with the reliability and medical accuracy of Nuance's cloud-based medical speech recognition technology to provide compliant and accurate documentation. Our integration with Nuance is another way that we are working to meet our clients' unique workflow needs to increase efficiency and promote better patient care."
Nextech's mobile dictation solution, known as NexSpeak, was launched with Nextech version 11.2, the company's latest software release, which has been certified as a Complete EHR by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT).
