Productivity Soars When AI-Powered Speech Recognition Technology is Merged with Nephrology

It seems like every time we open our computer or mobile device, we are bombarded with links that tell us about a new way AI (artificial intelligence) is being used in a variety of industries. While AI technology itself is not new, we are seeing the usage of AI increase in many areas. We recently developed an article that gave some insight into GPT and machine learning and how it is being used in healthcare, so we are expanding on that concept today as it relates to the specialty practice of nephrology. Many challenges remain in kidney disease diagnosis and treatment, and AI technology could take individual conditions into account, and produce suitable decisions that can make great strides in kidney disease management.

Various forms of AI are increasingly becoming relevant in kidney care. AI is being leveraged in nephology diagnostics and similar solutions to improve overall patient outcomes and optimize treatment plans. The built-in algorithms of AI (GPT) have been proven to help in several key areas:

➔ To Identify patients at risk of certain kidney diseases

➔ To Predict the progression of kidney disease

➔ To Build personalized treatment plans (based on discovered individual patient data)

When you and your practitioners use a speech recognition solution like Nuance® Dragon® Medical One (DMO) to document your patient encounters, the technology of GPT and machine learning helps by working intuitively by listening to conversations with patients (in the exam rooms, hospital rooms, and at the point of care) and transcribing those engagements into medical notes within your EHR.

In the past, physicians have relied on traditional typing, or use of a recording device to document their patient notes, with quite an extensive lag time from patient visit to transcribed note, and into a patient’s EHR. Days, sometimes weeks, have expired before you can even submit to the insurance provider, causing a delay in your revenue cycle, and low-output on the productivity scale. When a speech recognition device with built-in AI technology is integrated into the right place in your clinical workflow, you are positioned for a better productivity outcome.

Using DMO within your chosen EHR can provide your nephrologists with large-scale and real-world clinical data, which is the basis for better patient outcomes in the clinical arena. We know how challenging it is for us humans to directly analyze such massive data, as much (time and focus) is needed to avoid human error. It is quite evident that AI technology and the ensuing tools offer distinctive advantages. Please reach out to our Solution Specialists today to schedule a one-on-one call so we can provide you and your team more information on how AI (GPT) technology can help your practice ease the burden of excessive patient documentation.
