EHR vendor MEDITECH integrates generative AI for clinical notes

Building on its collaboration with Nuance Communications, EHR vendor MEDITECH has announced the integration of a generative AI tool that drafts clinical notes.

EHR vendor MEDITECH has expanded its longstanding partnership with Nuance Communications, Inc., a Microsoft company, by integrating a tool that uses generative AI to draft clinical notes. 

The integration of Nuance's Dragon Ambient eXperience Copilot (DAX Copilot) in the MEDITECH Expanse EHR aims to enhance healthcare experiences by automating the creation of clinical notes during patient exams.

DAX Copilot uses conversational, ambient, and generative AI to draft clinical documentation during in-person and telehealth patient visits for immediate clinician review.

The tool reduces the time and cognitive burdens of clinical documentation that lead to clinician burnout, allowing providers to focus on patient-centered care delivery.

The DAX Copilot integration aims to drive MEDITECH's strategy to advance new health IT and care models, mitigate clinician burden, drive patient satisfaction, and provide patient-centered precision care.

As a long-time partner and a member of the MEDITECH Alliance Program, Nuance already supports MEDITECH Expanse with the Dragon Medical portfolio.

"We are pleased to formally welcome Nuance to the MEDITECH Alliance," MEDITECH Associate Vice President Jeff Kimball said in a press release. "MEDITECH has a longstanding relationship with Nuance through our EHR's integration with Nuance's Dragon speech recognition software."

"With DAX Copilot, we will extend our support for conversational and ambient AI to further reduce the documentation burden on today's busy clinicians," Kimball added.

More than 200 healthcare organizations are using DAX Copilot in an effort to alleviate clinician burnout and improve patient care.
