What You Should Know:
– Augmedix, Inc., a provider of virtual medical documentation and live clinical support, today announced that it has partnered with Google Cloud to optimize and integrate automated speech recognition (“ASR”) technology for use in real-world clinical settings. ASR technology is a critical component in the Augmedix technology stack, and Augmedix is now integrating Google Cloud Speech-to-Text into its Notebuilder technology platform, which provides natural language processing (NLP) to produce a final clinical note.
– The combined ASR and NLP technology enhances the efficiency and quality of Augmedix’s medical documentation from ambient conversation while meeting the enterprise-grade security expectations of major health systems, including end-to-end encryption and robust user consent policies.
– Augmedix is harnessing ASR broadly across its user base, for both conversational (ambient) and single-party (dictation) contexts, to materially improve efficiency and quality scores for Augmedix and its clinician users, across more than a dozen national health systems.
