Samantha, the EHR Virtual Assistant from NoteSwift, was selected as the Allscripts ADP 2018 Innovation Award Winner, and has been named Allscripts App of the Month for May 2018.
Allscripts VP & General Manager Tina Joros penned a blog post featuring our revolutionary AI-driven technology:
Physician burnout is a well-documented issue. More than 40% of over 15,500 physicians polled in a recent MedScape study reported experiencing burnout. Three of the top reasons cited in the study related to clerical tasks and the time burden of EHR documentation:
- Too many bureaucratic tasks (e.g., charting, paperwork) – 56%
- Spending too many hours at work – 39%
- Increasing computerization of practice (EHRs) – 24%
This is a significant problem facing hospitals, health networks and medical practices of all sizes and specialties, and Allscripts is committed to designing and integrating with technology that minimizes the clerical burden of EHR documentation.
For example, one solution that has been shown to help ease the burden of EHR documentation is speech recognition, which helps with inputting the narrative of the note and navigating the EHR. But Dr. Chris Russell, a practicing neurologist, realized that technology needs to go beyond dictation to truly help providers.
It needs to intelligently understand the narrative, identify the required structured data elements, ensure terminology is correct and automatically place data into all the appropriate areas of the EHR — without having to manually click through every screen and option.
SamanthaTM, The EHR Virtual Assistant from NoteSwift, Inc. does exactly that.
