The two companies showcased how ambient clinical documentation can make AI-powered virtual assistant capabilities widely available through Epic apps.
Included in the deal are more than 4,000 comprehensive health topics spread across more than 18,000 pages of Mayo Clinic content.
The solution offers a standard feature set for healthcare providers, enabling HIPAA-compliant communications between organizations, care teams and patients.
The collaboration has started with a hands-free virtual assistant that uses Nuance's AI technology together with Epic's EHR system.
Clients of both companies will benefit from a streamlined experience; these include the likes of Hartford HealthCare, Inova, Yale New Haven Health, and others.
The application would enable doctors to receive alerts, such as test results, on their wrists and, presumingly, be able to respond accordingly.
The functionality makes it even easier to provide real-time updates for bed cleaning status and availability, therefore improving patient flow.
Initially though, the App Exchange service will focus on Epic's existing customer based, with consumer-focused apps coming at a later date.
The company will hopes to eliminate onsite operation of the system, which should result in cutting unnecessary costs and saving money for many customers.
