Microsoft has integrated an ambient clinical intelligence (ACI) solution into Microsoft Teams to deliver telehealth for patients and physicians. The integration is part of the partnership between Microsoft and Nuance Communications Inc.
For virtual consults, Microsoft announced Nuance Dragon® Ambient eXperience™ (DAX™) integration into Microsoft Teams to accelerate the adoption of ACI solutions to healthcare experiences. This will reduce the administrative workloads that weigh heavily on the physicians. The solution is now built on Microsoft Teams.
The integration will allow physicians to activate Nuance DAX from within their Microsoft Teams workflows. This will allow them to focus on the patients as the AI will derive the details of the consultation and create documentation.
Diana Nole, executive vice president, and general manager of healthcare, Nuance said: “Our strategic partnership with Microsoft, which led to this rapid integration of Nuance DAX with Microsoft Teams for telehealth, illustrates the ongoing importance of combining our technologies, domain expertise, and market reach to develop advanced cloud-based conversational AI solutions that keep the health of clinicians and patients front and center in healthcare delivery.”
Nuance DAX is used by over half a million physicians globally and has a proven track record of delivering great patient outcomes. Microsoft and Nuance will demonstrate the telehealth solution to customers for private preview at the Microsoft Ignite virtual conference which is being held on September 22-24, 2020.
