Modernizing Medicine Leverages Nuance Technology to Make It Easier for Doctors 
to Document Patient Visits Through Speech 
BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/13 --   Modernizing
Medicine, the creator of the Electronic Medical Assistant(R)
(EMA(TM)), a cloud-based, specialty-specific electronic medical
records (EMR) system, announced today that it is integrating Nuance's
speech recognition technology within EMA, which can help improve
physician documentation productivity, enhance physician satisfaction
and assist physicians in keeping clinical information accurate and up
to date in patient records. 
Leveraging speech recognition software by Nuance, Modernizing
Medicine's customers can reap the productivity and financial benefits
of talking naturally and at their own pace to document patient visits
within EMA, while using built-in voice navigation, and correction
capabilities and mobile device gesture support within the software.  
"EMA was built to save physicians time, and Modernizing Medicine
wants busy doctors to utilize EMA's iPad app even more efficiently by
speaking their documentation, saving them the time it takes to type,"
said Charles Brodsky, Executive Vice President of Business
Development at Modernizing Medicine. 
Benefits of using EMA with speech recognition: 


 
--  It is faster than typing: Most physicians speak more than 120 words
    per minute, but only type fewer than 40 words per minute. Speech
    recognition lets people document while on the go in a fraction of the
    time.
--  Works at each physician's own pace of speech: Physicians can speak
    naturally without having to wait for recognized text to appear on
    screen or navigation commands to be recognized.
--  Comes with an up-to-date medical vocabulary: Cloud-based,
    regularly-updated speech recognition and professional information
    means physicians have access to medical dictionaries, terms, phrases
    and clinical formatting rules.
--  Provides visualization and feedback: Visual indicators show physicians
    where speech is enabled and what the audio recording levels are, to
    help ensure a seamless experience.
--  Security: Speech-related data is communicated with 256-bit encryption
    to enable end-to-end security.
--  Offers voice navigation and commands: Allows 
physicians to navigate
    and make corrections using their voice, or control audio capture and
    text corrections using familiar gestures on mobile devices.
