Behavioral Health Professionals Utilize AI Powered Speech Recognition to Speed Up Documentation

Deep learning (DL) and artificial intelligence (AI) are used in speech recognition solutions to assist and analyze specific voice and language patterns. Mental healthcare providers, psychiatrists, and psychologists use this technology to screen for mental health issues in their patients across a wide range of care locations. Speech recognition, with machine-learning capabilities, recognizes and picks up on specific DL algorithms in the speech patterns in psychotherapy sessions through various phone and in-person encounters and analyzes those for better outcomes. As AI-powered methods continue to be introduced into the clinical workflow, professionals are using the data collected for decision-making based on patients’ historical data like their medical records, and past behavioral data.


DL, one of the most recent generations of AI technologies, has demonstrated superior performance in many real-world applications ranging from computer vision to healthcare. (Medical News Today)

DL technologies are being used in many applications that assist medical professionals in other ways. AI-powered speech recognition solutions like Nuance® Dragon® Medical One, are being implemented in behavioral health clinics and practices within their practice management solutions, to help save time with the extensive documentation requirements of today’s practitioner.
