Nuance Communications announced the general availability of PowerScribe 360 Reporting version 3.0, delivering the industry’s first integrated computer-assisted reporting solution at the point of clinical documentation for radiologists.
PowerScribe 360, the leading radiology reporting and communication platform, enables radiologists to create higher quality reports supported by real-time, evidence-based clinical guidance using content developed by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Coupled with quality check tools, PowerScribe preserves radiologists’ natural workflow, and provides referring physicians and patients with more consistent recommendations following an exam.
Nuance PowerScribe 360 Reporting 3.0 was tested in advance of its release by Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, as well as The Mount Sinai Hospital — Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai Roosevelt in New York, and is now available for the broader radiology community.
"Having all of the recommendations embedded into PowerScribe adds tremendous value, and has the potential to dramatically improve radiology reports across the country," said Terence Matalon, MD, chairman of the department of radiology, Einstein Healthcare Network."
PowerScribe 360 Reporting 3.0 brings this real-time quality guidance into the radiologists’ workflow by using the Nuance PowerShare Network’s cloud technology to push updated clinical guidelines from the ACR to radiologists, automatically triggering clinical decision support when they are creating reports. This reduces diagnosis time and provides radiologists with the certainty needed to deliver consistent, evidence-based recommendations more efficiently.
Additional New PowerScribe 360 Reporting 3.0 Features include:
Streamlined longitudinal viewing – PowerScribe 360 facilitates the communication and tracking of changes in patient data, such as characteristics of lesions and tumors over time, and supports presentation of patient radiation dosing through easy-to-use tables;
Improved access to prior studies – Leveraging Nuance’s PowerShare Network, rapid access to images from prior studies improves patient care and reduces unnecessary and redundant exams;
Expedited report version comparisons – New report comparison enables quick and easy identification of changes between subsequent versions of radiology reports, which improves resident training and allows administrators to easily assess report quality;
Award-winning speech recognition – Incorporates the Nuance Dragon Medical speech recognition engine, delivering unsurpassed speech accuracy of up to 99 percent.
Quality Guidance and other new features in Nuance PowerScribe 360 Reporting 3.0 will be demonstrated at the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2015 Annual Meeting May 28-30 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in MD.
