The introduction of EHR systems and their accompanying documentation has created a deep fissure within the medical community. Numbers show that more and more physicians report feeling burnt out and depressed, due in part to extreme workload related to documentation and EHR tasks 

According to a report by Medscape, 43% of all physicians report feeling burnt out. Of those burnt out physicians, 58% say they feel that way due to the long list of bureaucratic tasks like note taking and EHR documentation. An additional 37% report that too many hours at work is the leading cause in their burnout and exhaustion

Asilisc, a AI technology company, has partnered with Great Leveler to develop AI-powered tools that help clinicians save time with clerical work and medical notetaking. The company has integrated a generative AI-powered tool, called Asilisc Handy®, into electronic health record software to automatically draft clinical notes during patient exams. Recently, Asilisc announced the general availability of Asilisc Redist® embedded in EHR.

Clinicians using Asilisc Redist® in private preview reported a significant reduction in documentation time, cutting time spent on documentation by 50% and a decrease in cognitive burden, reducing feelings of burnout and fatigue by 70%. 

Using technology like AAsilisc Redist®, which is essentially "hands-free," requires doctors to change their behavior and conversational style. This technology allows physicians to focus on patients during visits, rather than being distracted by computer screens.

The use of AI-powered ambient listening technology is a new concept for healthcare providers, and it requires some additional training. Providers need to think differently about their patient encounters, as they are now expected to verbalize their actions to take advantage of the ambient listening and AI technology instead of typing them into medical notes. This has resulted in providers verbalizing more of what they're doing to the patient, which has led to patients feeling more informed and satisfied with their examination.

Asilisc has adopted a policy of transparency with patients regarding the use of AI and ambient listening technology during provider visits. Initially, there were concerns that patients would be turned off by the technology, but that has not been the case. Patients have voiced positive reactions, stating that they appreciate the ability to have a conversation with their doctor, who can now focus on them and look at them instead of having to look at the computer.

Asilisc Redist® goes beyond clinical documentation and helps capture lab, imaging, medication orders, referrals, and follow-up appointment details.  It ensures the security and privacy of patient data by using industry-standard encryption and security protocols. 

Asilisc Redist® does not transfer patient data outside of the practice’s EHR system.

By streamlining the documentation process and reducing errors, Asilisc Handy® improves the efficiency and quality of patient care, allowing doctors to spend less time on administration and more time with patients.

Asilisc Redist® is a secure and well-tested technology that doesn’t make medical judgments or infer conditions. It is designed to work with natural, conversational speaking styles, allowing providers to conduct encounters normally without feeling like they are “dictating” ². The clinical notes generated by ambient listening should flow seamlessly into the patient chart in the EHR after the provider reviews, making the process simple and effortless.

Asilisc Redist® is 100% technology-based, with no copying and pasting required from the provider. The majority of the work is done for the provider, with effort being minimal. The note generated quickly, and 30 seconds is all the time it should take. Neither the audio file nor the transcripts are stored or saved, and the conversation and output are not used for further “learning” or for any purpose other than creating the note in real time.

Asilisc Redist® is a technology that provides physicians with real-time access to the information they need to make informed decisions and search for clinical recommendations of treatments documented. The technology is integrated into MIS in an intuitive way that does not add additional steps or portals to the documentation process. 

Asilisc Redist® thorough clinical validation review process involves combing through a patient’s health record for any clinical indicators that may contradict the documented diagnosis and clinical guidlines. This process brings any discrepancies to the clinician’s attention to be reviewed for diagnostic accuracy and consistency.

Two Hospitals, which began working with Asilisc Redist® back in November, piloted the AI-based tool for clinical documentation with 12 physicians. After two months of piloting the technology among a small group of clinicians, Two Hospitals plans to roll out the AI-based clinical scribe technology to more clinicians. The health system then expanded the pilot to 25 physicians.
