Nuance Ranked #1 Provider for Speech Recognition and Clinical Documentation Improvement

Nuance Communications announced that it has once again ranked highest in customer satisfaction by Black Book Research for AI-powered clinical documentation improvement (CDI), speech recognition and clinical intelligence solutions essential for improving financial and patient outcomes and delivering quality care. The Black Book survey is based on 4,220 responses from 3,744 clinician practices and 315 hospitals and demonstrates Nuance’s continued leadership and forward-thinking vision for the future of healthcare.

Ninety-four percent of physician groups and practice associations participating in the survey confirmed the need to build more successful CDI programs to meet the complex challenges of outpatient services as practices transition to new payment schemes with payers. Nuance solutions, which use speech recognition and clinical decision support tools to reduce administrative burdens and improve clinical workflow efficiency, secured the highest client satisfaction rating in the following categories:

  • End-to-End Coding, CDI, CAC Solutions – Medical Practices, Ambulatory Care & Physicians for the ninth consecutive year
  • End-to-End Coding, CDI, CAC Solutions – Inpatient Hospitals & Health Systems for the fourth consecutive year
  • Speech Recognition and Clinical Intelligence Solutions – Hospitals, Physician Practices, Emergency Departments, and Imaging facilities for the second consecutive year

Within the three categories, Nuance consistently rated highest in operational excellence across more than half of the 18 performance criteria, including strategic alignment with client goals; trust, transparency, and ethics; integration and interfaces; financial and managerial viability; and best in breed process improvement.

The annual ranking demonstrates Nuance’s success with cloud-based AI solutions including Nuance CDE One and Nuance Dragon Medical One.
