-- Lightning Charts, a native iPad application for Emergency Department physician documentation, has been named App-of-the-Month by Nuance Healthcare
for its innovative integration of Nuance’s 360 | Development Platform.
The Lightning Charts Nuance-powered, speech-enabled mobile app allows physicians to quickly and accurately dictate information to customize and personalize the documentation of the patient encounter at any point in the chart. The dynamically created charts can save the physician about four minutes a chart. If a physician sees 30 patients a shift, Lightning Charts can save the physician 120 minutes per shift. That’s two hours that the physician can spend with existing patients or seeing more patients. The Lightning Charts medical record looks, prints and reads like the “gold standard” in emergency department documentation – the dictated chart. This is particularly valuable in terms of “transfer of care” to other providers within the department, hospital or broader medical community and for risk management.
"We are excited about our integration of Nuance Healthcare’s medical speech recognition into our native iPad application, Lightning Charts. Clearly, dynamic charting for physicians at the bedside is the next standard of care in documentation and this speech-enabled integration helps make dynamic charting a reality,” said Stephen Miley MD, Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President of Business Development at Lightning Charts.
Nuance’s recognition of Lightning Charts supports the goal of Lightning Charts to deliver software products that enhance all aspects of ED charting.
