Speech Understanding: Taking It Beyond Speech Recognition

Every patient has a unique story. Dictated narrative reports have long been the preferred approach. As one doctor put it, “One of the most helpful lessons I’ve learned about being a physician is that we’re story tellers. We’re trying to capture the patient’s full story.” Yet the industry has created a crisis of capture around clinical narrative in the move to EHRs and other electronic clinical systems. Pursuing the legitimate need for structured data, a paradigm of template-based data entry has been pushed at the expense of rich narrative documentation. This white paper reveals how cloud-based speech understanding technology and services convert the physician narrative into a high quality and customized electronic record that improves the quality of clinical data, while accelerating and automating the documentation process.
