Advances in technology have improved healthcare providers' ability to rapidly diagnose patients at the point of care, screen for common conditions, and provide a variety of effective treatment options. Providers need to be aware of what innovations are available - or will become available in the near future. It is the purpose of Medgizmos to educate and inform healthcare providers regarding the latest and greatest technologies.

Jared Pelo MD, DAX Interview

Nuance Communications, the company that pioneered voice detection software for medical practices, partnered with Microsoft in 2019 to develop an “ambient clinical intelligence” system, called the “Dragon Ambient Experience” or DAX for short. DAX uses an application running on a smartphone, either alone or in combination will a wall mounted “machine vision” camera and 16 microphone array to record a patient’s visit with a physician. The information is transferred to Nuance’s cloud based Artificial Intelligence system which analyses the captured recording and creates an office note.  The note is reviewed by Nuance technicians, and then transmitted into the physician’s electronic medical record for review and signature.  Now available for use in clinics by specialists and primary care providers, in the near future DAX will be available for use in hospitals and will facilitate note creation by nurses and other support staff- as well as providers. As the system enables providers to see more patients per day, DAX virtually pays for itself. 

My interview with Jared Pelo MD, Nuance’s Chief Information Officer, Ambient Clinical Intelligence, is wide ranging and discusses the evolution of DAX, as well as how it is used in a clinic environment.  I think you will find the discussion interesting and even provocative – as it provides a look into healthcare’s promising “virtual” future.
