Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center (AIMMC), a 408-bed hospital in Chicago with a Level I trauma center and a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, was facing a crisis of indecipherable and incomplete documentation in its GI and surgery departments. A study revealed illegible documentation and missing signatures, dates and time stamps. Something needed to be done.
The facility turned to Nuance Healthcare for a speech-enabled EHR system that could be deployed rapidly and still maintain physician satisfaction.
With 100 percent adoption of the system, the benefits turned out to be huge: complete and universally available electronic patient records, increased physician efficiency, Meaningful Use compliance, and the ability to bill more accurately for services.
