Gain control of Protected Healthcare Information (PHI)

Nuance empowers your healthcare organization to streamline electronic and document workflows, delivering the control you need to ensure healthcare document compliance while reducing costs and maximizing efficiency.

Go paperless – and pain-free

Many hospitals and clinics talk about going paperless. Yet even organizations that have achieved late-stage Meaningful Use still process and print high volumes of documents every day. This massive amount of paper is hard to track and costly to manage while posing a serious risk of HIPAA document compliance breaches. Nuance Document Healthcare Solutions can help you control workflows and enhance security when exchanging patient information – all to increase efficiency, reduce costs and ease your team’s paper pains.
