"The benefit to patients is becoming readily apparent. By reducing the documentation burden, we allow providers to focus on delivering the best care for their patients and enable stronger patient-provider relationships," Owens said.
The Nuance DAX solution revolutionizes physician-patient experiences by securely capturing and contextualizing physician-patient conversations during virtual and in-person exams with clinical documentation that writes itself™.
