Case Study

AI POWERED VOICE INTEGRATION FOR EMR SOFTWARE

As Electronic Medical Records (“EMRs”) have been developed and adopted, the capability for codified data has focused on billing, reimbursement and other operational data – beyond the data solely required for high-quality care. This has resulted in productivity loss among physicians, who are spending over half their working time in front of the screen. This means they are spending more time on documentation and less time with their patients.

EMRs are hurting the care relationship. They take away eye contact from medical encounters, and clinicians are thinking about the mechanics of documentation, rather than the full implications of the symptoms and findings. Moreover, physicians’ work-life satisfaction has been dropping. At times, they feel like they are professionally reduced to data entry clerks, and professional burnout is on the rise. Eighty percent of U.S. doctors believe virtual assistants would drastically change how they use their EMRs, freeing time they can then spend with patients.
