Clinical documentation –my guest post on For the Health of IT

Health care reform, technology changes and patient expectations are driving major shifts in clinical documentation. My guest post at For the Health of IT, a Nuance Communications, Inc. blog lays out key trends and describes ways that provider organizations can adapt.

There’s a link to the new Health Business Group study, Clinical Documentation Trends in the US, 2013-2016, which is available for free download.

  1. I have used speech to text for medical documentation. But, after seeing the expansive and unfocused result an organization would do much better with smart templates (i.e. pick the entry from choices based on the diagnosis). Some ad hoc entry is needed for subjective areas but not elsewhere.
