SIIM13: Actionable Radiology Reports a Reality with Nuance
Radiologists Improve Patient Outcomes with Timely, Data-Driven Patient Reports
SIIM 2013, BOOTH #327, Grapevine-Dallas – June 4, 2013 – Nuance Communications, Inc., will be showcasing its PowerScribe 360 platform at the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2013 Annual Meeting June 6 – 9, 2013 in Grapevine-Dallas, Texas. PowerScribe 360 helps radiologists create timely, actionable reports that improve clinical decision making and streamline patient care by seamlessly incorporating speech recognition, clinical language understanding, data integrations and the communication of critical test results directly into the radiologists’ workflow.
“Today, our radiologists are facing spiraling costs, decreasing reimbursements, increased competition, expanding compliance requirements and a pressing need to clearly demonstrate our role in care coordination and improving patient outcomes,” said Jana Hansen, Diagnostic Imaging Systems and Ultrasound Manager, Mankato Clinic. “Nuance helps our radiologists address these issues by enabling them to work smarter, not harder. Their all-encompassing radiology reporting platform expedites the creation and delivery of actionable, data-driven patient information to our referring providers, so that we can deliver on the promise of high quality, cost-effective patient care.”
