NoteSwift Launches SamanthaTM, The Virtual Assistant for athenaClinicals® EHR
Boston, Mass. – Jan. 30, 2018 – NoteSwift, Inc., a provider of EHR virtual assistant solutions, today announced a partnership with athenahealth, Inc. through athenahealth’s ‘More Disruption Please’ (MDP) program. As part of the athenahealth® Marketplace, this newly integrated EHR virtual assistant, SamanthaTM, is now available to athenahealth’s growing network of more than 106,000 healthcare providers to help physicians reduce EHR documentation time while increasing reporting accuracy.
“NoteSwift is excited to partner with athenahealth to disrupt the EHR market, removing administrative burdens that cause physician burnout and decrease patient interactions,” said Wayne Crandall, President and CEO of NoteSwift.
“Our revolutionary new EHR virtual assistant, Samantha, saves physicians 6-8 hours each week by eliminating the need to manually enter details of the patient encounter.”
“Instead, Samantha’s advanced artificial intelligence creates the entire patient note from a single screen and with just a few clicks. A physician simply types or dictates the patient narrative and Samantha’s patent-pending technology intelligently parses the text, identifies structured data elements, assigns all required coding, and prepares orders and ePrescriptions for physician sign-off. Samantha then places all the information into the correct fields of athenaClinicals® EHR automatically–just as if it had been typed in manually.”
athenahealth is a network-enabled, results-oriented services company that offers medical record, revenue cycle, patient engagement, care coordination, and population health services for hospital and ambulatory clients. The company’s vision is to build a national health information backbone to help make healthcare work as it should. As an MDP partner, NoteSwift, Inc., joins a network of like-minded healthcare professionals who are looking to disrupt established approaches in healthcare that simply aren’t working, aren’t good enough, or aren’t advancing the industry and help providers thrive in the face of industry change.

About NoteSwift, Inc.
NoteSwift was developed and incorporated in 2012 by practicing Neurologist Dr. Chris Russell, to improve efficiency and productivity with his own practice’s electronic health records. Dr. Russell’s unique combination of expertise in medicine and software development helped him integrate his EHR with speech recognition software to go beyond narrative dictation.
In 2017, the NoteSwift team launched the next evolution of Dr. Russell’s solution, Samantha™ (Semi-AutonoMous Adaptive Note Transcription Heuristic Algorithm). Because Samantha™ enables providers to complete patient notes easily and automatically assigns all required coding, providers can not only complete patient documentation faster, but also more accurately, improving reimbursement rates and reducing costly claim denials.
