Quality & compliance
Electronic health records (EHRs) promise to help your practice support regulatory compliance and assess the quality of care. But your EHR is only as effective as the data that goes into it. Nuance voice-driven documentation methods integrate directly with the EHR to improve usability, boost adoption, and give your practice the rich, reliable data it needs. Downstream, you can accurately measure, track, analyze, and benchmark your performance and validate your compliance program through external audits. Regardless of your specialty, Nuance solutions provide the enhanced quality metrics reporting you’ll need to prove your outcomes and attestation requirements are being met.
The reimbursement you receive should be as reliable as the care you give. Being able to provide accurate and complete documentation can make all the difference. Nuance solutions make it easy to capture the right amount of the right information at the point of care—allowing you to shorten billing cycles and reduce claim denials. In addition to helping increase your revenue, our cloud-based solutions require less capital investment, demand fewer IT resources, take up less space, and update automatically—resulting in significant cost savings for clinics without the time and staff to support bulky hardware installations.
