Nuance Earns 'Top Five Movers' in 2013 Healthcare Informatics 100

Company Advances to 14thon Annual List of Nation's Most Prominent Healthcare IT Vendors through Growth and Investments in Intelligent Systems

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NAS: NUAN) was recently named one of the "top five movers" on the 2013 Healthcare Informatics 100. Nuance advanced from 20th on the list last year to 14th this year through growth and strategic investments in helping healthcare providers overcome today's siloed approach to clinical documentation.

By arming providers with advanced technologies and services that improve the quality and efficiency of documentation starting at the point of care, Nuance helps clinicians ensure the integrity of patient information for both clinical and business processes.

"Nuance is reinventing how physicians use technology to simplify clinical documentation and keep the focus on the patient," said Brian Yeaman, CMIO, Norman Regional Medical System. "They understand how healthcare is changing and the clinical and financial implications associated with the transition to outcomes-based patient care."

Each year, Healthcare Informatics ranks the top 100 U.S. vendors with the highest revenues derived from healthcare IT products and services. Over the past year, Nuance has made strategic investments to help providers tackle the intricacies of clinical documentation by integrating a physician-first, end-to-end approach to clinical documentation. Those investments include the acquisitions of J.A. Thomas and Associates and Quantim which led to the creation of Nuance's Clintegrity 360 suite.

"Nuance's leadership in the healthcare industry, underscored by this ranking, is a significant achievement built from the success and loyalty of the more than 10,000 healthcare organizations and 450,000 clinicians that rely on us to help them fix their biggest clinical documentation and coding problems," said Janet Dillione, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Healthcare Division.
