Nuance Closes Acquisition of Transcend

The combination of Nuance and Transcend will significantly improve the way patient data is captured, processed and used across the small- to mid-size hospital market, which comprises approximately 90 percent of hospitals in the U.S. Nuance will build upon Transcend’s market leadership among this group of hospitals, expanding its customer base through the delivery of voice-enabled and Clinical Language Understanding-powered (CLU) solutions that help healthcare organizations of all sizes achieve Meaningful Use and accelerate the transition to ICD-10.

The combined company’s offering will aid healthcare organizations’ chief financial officers (CFO) to lower costs associated with the administration and management of traditional clinical documentation and medical transcription processes, allowing them to prioritize core business activities, financial goals and patient care initia¬tives.

“The acquisition of Transcend will expand the delivery of our innovative voice and Clinical Language Understanding solutions especially to small- and mid-size hospitals,” said Janet Dillione, executive vice president and general manager of Nuance’s Healthcare business. “With Transcend, we will drive change and improvement to the way these hospitals capture and leverage clinical information. The acquisition is a natural extension of Nuance’s existing healthcare business, and will strengthen our solution and services portfolio, as well as enhance our profitability.”
