BayCare Health System and healthPrecision have teamed up for advanced hospital bedside documentation tools that improve accuracy, efficiency, nurse satisfaction and patient outcomes.

Under the partnership, healthPrecision will co-develop its Medical Brain artificial intelligence (AI) platform, with BayCare to reduce the documentation burden of hospital nurses.

Medical Brain is an AI platform that combines the power of an advanced natural language communication platform with clinical standards, protocols, and knowledge, in real time.

The platform supports users to achieve high-quality clinical decision-making and delivers superior accuracy in patient medical records.

Medical Brain is already being used in chronic care and acute care settings to provide high-precision care to their patients.

It is also being used to help providers and their patients manage complex, chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and renal disease, said BayCare.

BayCare CEO Stephanie Conners said: “We are excited to be at the forefront with healthPrecision to improve the safety and quality of patient care and improve the environment in which nurses practice.

“Voice technology is the future and its potential to improve patient care, including in hospitals, is extraordinary. BayCare’s commitment to continue to be the best place to receive care, provide care and to work makes pioneering this innovation with healthPrecision a natural fit.”

According to BayCare, AI-based clinical decision support technology significantly reduces about 90.7% adverse events in high-risk obstetrics patients.

The co-development enables nurses at BayCare to dictate information to the Medical Brain application using a mobile device, rather than typing patient updates into a computer.

Medical Brain is designed to translate the verbal information given by the nurses into written documentation in the patients’ electronic medical records.

It will prompt nurses if they overlook an opportunity for additional assessments or treatments, using its library of evidence-based best practices.

The advanced application will also remind nurses when a patient follow-up is required and allows them to rapidly document.

healthPrecision co-founder and president Sonia Ben Yehuda said: “We are proud to partner with BayCare to bring the Medical Brain technology to nurses.

By empowering nurses with AI-powered documentation and decision support, we aim to optimize workflow efficiency, patient care and nursing satisfaction. We look forward to working with BayCare to drive innovation together.

“By using the Medical Brain, nurses will be able to update records immediately, facilitating collaboration with colleagues, while relieving time burdens and stress.”
