Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions from Nuance to be Featured in American Health Information Management Association’s Virtual Lab

Dictaphone Enterprise Speech Recognition and Transcription Technologies Offer Educational Institutions Realistic Experience of Managing Clinical Documentation Processes

AHIMA Convention, DENVER, October 11, 2006 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN), a leading provider of speech and imaging solutions, today announced that its Dictaphone® enterprise-level speech recognition solution is being implemented at the new Virtual Lab developed by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). The Virtual Lab is a completely on-line environment funded by AHIMA's Foundation of Research and Education (FORE), and is designed to offer students seeking to embark on a career in health information management (HIM) real-world experience on the latest health information management technologies. Dictaphone, a division of Nuance, located in AHIMA booth #1434, is an early sponsor of the initiative, donating software and services and providing technical consultation.

Geared towards schools and colleges through North America, the Virtual Lab is part of AHIMA and FORE’s efforts to promote leadership in health information management in the emerging world of electronic health records. The Virtual Lab will include a range of current technologies, including systems for electronic document management, documentation quality management, patient identification, and coding. Dictation, transcription and speech recognition applications to be featured include Nuance’s Dictaphone® Enterprise Express® Voice and Text systems, in use today in thousands of hospitals and clinics to manage documentation workflow, EXSpeech® for transcription-based speech recognition, and Enterprise Workstation®, which will give students exposure to the physician self-editing style of speech recognition.

“Educational institutions in HIM have great difficulty acquiring the technologies that will keep their students current and train them for next generation leadership,” said Peter Durlach, senior vice president of marketing and product management with Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions division of Nuance Communications. “AHIMA’s Virtual Lab is really a one-of-a-kind opportunity to solve this problem and give students across the country access to the software they will use when they get out of school and into their careers. We’re very pleased to be in the vanguard of this exciting effort.”

Added Eileen Murray, Executive Director of FORE, “Nuance’s Dictaphone solutions are central to health information departments, and the company’s speech recognition solutions are among the technologies transforming our industry and the HIM profession. We appreciate Nuance joining with other major firms to lead the effort in getting the Virtual Lab established.”
