Notable Launches EHR-Integrated Voice-Powered Apple Watch App

Notable Launches EHR-Integrated Voice-Powered Apple Watch App | EHR and Health IT Consulting | Scoop.it

Notable, an emerging digital health startup in voice-powered healthcare has launched the first wearable voice-powered smart assistant for physicians that will transform the healthcare experience. Available as a white labeled solution for wearables, the platform leverages artificial intelligence and voice recognition technology to automate and structure every physician-patient interaction as well as eliminate the vast majority of clinical administrative work. The Notable team consists of technology industry veterans. To date, Notable has closed an initial $3M round of seed funding led by Greylock Partners, with additional participation from Maverick Ventures and 8VC.

 

The amount of time physicians spend on paperwork and administrative tasks continues to increase with most spending more than 10 hours per week. While EHRs have digitized health records, the overhead of data collection often leads to patient data that is sparse and lacks information. These systemic challenges burden patient care with overhead and inefficiency, and lead to physician burnout as time is increasingly spent behind a computer instead of on patient care.

 

Notable is the first ever voice-driven medical assistant app built for the Apple Watch. It utilizes voice wake features that make it possible for clinicians to complete an encounter with just one tap. Notable automatically structures conversations, dictations, orders, and recommends the appropriate billing codes. Data is automatically entered into the EHR in a secure manner using robotic process automation. Since its beta launch, Notable has greater than a 98.5 percent approval rate, saves physicians at least an hour per day, and is already powering thousands of visits per month in multiple specialties.

“We see massive opportunity in Notable and the work they are doing to fundamentally change the physician-patient experience,” said Jerry Chen, partner at Greylock Partners. “The Notable team’s expertise in building products in highly regulated industries gives them an unparalleled advantage, enabling them to create the first voice-powered application and solve a true problem for physicians.”

6.5 Billion Transactions Boost Health Information Exchange

6.5 Billion Transactions Boost Health Information Exchange | EHR and Health IT Consulting | Scoop.it

The quick and efficient access to healthcare data among medical organizations is vital in pursuit of improved quality of care, better patient health outcomes, and lower costs. In general, health information exchange helps reduce hospital readmission rates, target symptoms before a disease progresses, and prevent medical errors across the healthcare continuum.


One announcement from Surescripts – the largest health information network across the country – shows how devoted the medical industry is to advancing health information exchange and quick access to pertinent data in pursuit of better patient care. Last year, Surescripts processed 6.5 billion health data transactions, which was published in the 2014 National Progress Report. The large amount of health information exchange Surescripts conducted amounts to more than either PayPal or American Express handled in 2014.


“Connecting the nation’s healthcare system is a monumental task, and while more work is needed to ensure true interoperability nationwide, there is no question that the Surescripts network is more connected than ever before,” Tom Skelton, Chief Executive Officer of Surescripts, said in a public statement. “Healthcare is evolving and our collective ability to share health information is addressing a major pain point for providers and patients that ultimately saves time and money and improves the quality of care.”


The statistics show it all – Surescripts exchanged data transactions among 900,000 healthcare professionals, 61,000 pharmacies, 3,300 hospitals, 700 EHR systems, 45 immunization registries, and 32 state and regional networks. The health information that Surescripts shared belonged to approximately 230 million patients, which represents seven out of ten US residents.


Through the Surescripts network, 1.2 billion electronic prescriptions were processed by pharmacies and physicians. Additionally, healthcare professionals accessed and shared 764 million medical history transactions and 7.4 million clinical messages.


Throughout 2013, the access of medication history data rose 75 percent in acute care settings like emergency rooms. Some other key information that Surescripts is capable of sharing among healthcare organizations includes patient charts, visit summaries, and referral orders.


When compared with 2013, the amount of clinical messages that were transferred across the Surescripts network rose by 1,300 percent. This type of extensive health information exchange complies with many regulatory policies and raises patient health outcomes across the nation.


Additionally, sharing electronic data access throughout the industry is a major driver toward combatting prescription fraud and drug abuse. Electronic drug prescription plays a huge role in reducing the abuse of prescription painkillers, for example. Paper prescriptions are relatively easy to forge and medical facilities that transfer to electronic prescribing will make it virtually impossible for addicts to transcribe a false prescription.


“I see the physical and emotional toll that opioid abuse takes on patients and their families every day in the emergency room. E-prescribing can be an effective tool in fighting that abuse,” Dr. Sean Kelly, FACEP, CMO, an emergency physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, stated in the press release. “Physicians are eager to embrace technology – as long as it is good technology that speeds our workflows and allows us to make better informed decisions that increase patient safety.”
