Nuance named category leader for quality management solutions


For the second consecutive year, Nuance Communications has been named the leading vendor in the quality management solutions category in the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS Awards: Software and Services report.

Nuance Clintegrity Quality solutions ranked highest with a score of 92.0, significantly higher than other quality management solutions vendors in the top five. According to KLAS, Nuance earned top honors as the category leader for helping healthcare professionals provide better patient care.

Nuance attributes its success to the company’s commitment to helping clients adhere to regulatory guidelines and prepare for value-based care through comprehensive quality measures reporting, risk management and patient safety.

Its quality management technologies and services help clinicians and healthcare systems measure and manage quality, and comply with shifting requirements, including those outlined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS). Through real-time performance trending, Clintegrity Quality solutions clients have improved quality scores, and reduced hospital acquired conditions and readmissions.

“By using our Clintegrity Quality Solutions, our clients achieve significant improvements in their key quality metrics, which are becoming increasingly important as CMS and private payers shift more of their reimbursement from fee-for-service to value-based models,” said Mike Loyd, general manager, Nuance Clintegrity Coding and Quality.

“Our clients see measurable gains in key outcomes including 100 percent achievement of core measures reporting, improvements in smoking cessation from 71 percent to 100 percent, coronary intervention strategies doubling from 55 percent to 100 percent, and notable increases in their value-based purchasing (VBP) scores.”
