Injazat, Nuance to boost UAE healthcare operations

ABU DHABI, July 10, 2019

Abu Dhabi-based Injazat has signed an agreement with Nuance, an industry-leading provider of AI-powered solutions, to promote cloud-based speech recognition solutions in hospitals and thus enhance healthcare operations in the UAE.
Injazat is a leading information technology and transformation specialist in the region that combines technologies with industry expertise and scale. The company offers a range of flexible solutions to fit all requirements, supporting clients to maximise their investments and define their future IT requirements to support business objectives.

Using speech recognition technology, physicians will be able to record patient conditions accurately and efficiently, eliminating the need to manually document patient encounters and ultimately freeing up physicians’ time to focus on more meaningful interaction with the patient, said a statement from the company.

Nuance’s cloud-based AI-powered Dragon Medical Direct provides the flexibility for physicians to update electronic health records (EHRs) regardless of device and physical location.

Khaled Al Melhi, chief executive officer, Injazat, said: “Healthcare is one of the most important sectors that is being disrupted by AI. Our partnership with Nuance shows our commitment to ensure the UAE is a forerunner in implementing AI-based solutions.”

“This solution facilitates better documentation that will help both doctors and patients in improving the quality of healthcare provided in the UAE,” he added.

Michael Clark, senior vice president and general manager - provider solutions, Nuance, said: “Our company has deep product integration with leading EHR vendors globally which provides physicians with an interoperable solution that optimises productivity levels and EHR functionality.”

“Dragon Medical Direct seamlessly integrates into existing caregiver workflows and eliminates up to one hundred million clicks per day, enabling UAE healthcare providers to produce documentation up to 45 per cent faster and capture up to 20 per cent more relevant content,” he added.
To support the launch and assist with compliance with patient privacy regulations, the solution is hosted by Injazat certified hosting infrastructures in the UAE, it said.
Clark continued: “Our local UAE partner, Emerging Global Technologies, delivers our solutions with exceptional responsiveness and performance across devices, including thin client and virtual deployments, and allows for effortless software updates in the cloud, ensuring customers are using our latest innovations.”

“Furthermore, by moving heavy processing workloads to Injazat, customers are able to easily run Dragon Medical Direct with minimal network impact, eliminating unnecessary burdens,” he added.

At the AI Everything Dubai Summit last month, Injazat in partnership with Emerging Global Technologies launched the solution to the UAE market for the first time to enable the power of AI-based speech-recognition technology, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
