    With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
    At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
    Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.

    Discover the reality of living with hidradenitis suppurativa

    In this episode, we speak with Christopher Sayed, a dermatologist who has dedicated his career to studying and treating hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). HS is a condition that causes painful boils in areas like the underarms, groin, and around the breasts, and it can be a nightmare for those living with it. Unfortunately, despite being a common condition, many patients go undiagnosed and receive inadequate treatment for years. In this podcast, we explore the impact of HS on patients, the reasons for the lack of awareness and resources for this disease, and the steps we can take to improve the lives of those living with HS. Join us as we shed light on this often overlooked but devastating condition.
    Christopher Sayed is a dermatologist.
    He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "Why does it take 10 years to diagnose this common disease?"
