Seek, Speak, and Ye Shall Find

Nuance Healthcare Development Platform Brings Medical Speech IBM to Collaborate with Nuance to Apply IBM's 'Watson' Analytics Technology to Healthcare

Press Release, Nuance Inc., February 22, 2011

Human understanding is based on voice cognition,
Therein rests the power of computer speech recognition.
Reform is about walking the walk.
It comes down to talking the talk.
Doctors must know the story,
Of why patients are there.
Patients must take verbal inventory,
Of what doctors offer in care.
This exchange cannot be expressed numerically,
Or in the scheme of things as data generically.
The relationship is partly about finances
But more about body and voice nuances.
If the computer to each could speak,
Perhaps each could find what they seek.
