Nuance, Collective collaborate on AI image sharing tool

By staff writers

November 4, 2021 -- Nuance Communications and Collective Medical have collaborated to offer a new image-sharing tool on Collective's technology platform.

Nuance PowerShare Image Aware will be offered on Collective's PointClickCare network platform, which spans a care continuum of 21,000 long-term, acute, and postacute care providers, as well as over 1,300 hospitals, Nuance said.

Nuance PowerShare Image Aware is an image-sharing tool designed for improving radiology workflows in emergency departments. The software provides emergency department (ED) physicians with real-time notifications of a patient's prior radiology studies within existing clinical workflows.

Nuance PowerShare Image Aware notifies ED clinicians within seconds when a new patient's health history and radiology studies are available, Nuance said. It also shows if images and associated metadata are available in PowerShare for viewing, when and where studies were performed, which imaging modality (CT, MRI, etc.) was used, and the area of the body that was imaged.

In addition, the PowerShare Image Aware capability will enable radiologists to integrate a patient's prior imaging into radiology reporting tools, such as Nuance PowerScribe, a radiology reporting cloud platform used by 80% of radiologists in the U.S., according to the company.

Point-of-care access to previous diagnostic images reduces unnecessary imaging, healthcare costs, and ED waiting times while expediting diagnosis and treatment for improved outcomes and patient experiences, Nuance said.
