Join Nuance for a 15 minute power up session to understand the impact of introducing clinical speech recognition integrated into the electronic patient record.

EMIS Health Live: The New Normal


Research has found that clinicians are increasingly overwhelmed and demotivated by clinical documentation. AI-powered speech recognition provides a more natural and insightful approach to clinical documentation resulting in a faster, more detailed record while allowing clinicians to spend more time caring for patients. Hear about the key role clinical speech recognition can play in reducing the burden of clinical documentation in diverse settings from across primary care, community care and secondary care. Learn how new advances in AI-powered speech technology can improve the quality of clinical documentation, access relevant clinical knowledge at the point of care and support better SNOMED CT clinical coding.
