Cloud-based 3M™ Fluency Direct seamlessly works with more than 250 EMRs, including all major platforms, to achieve faster EMR adoption, higher quality documentation and lower transcription costs. Advanced voice commands facilitate EMR navigation and single sign-on capabilities further boost clinician productivity.
A single, cloud-hosted voice profile allows clinicians to dictate into their EHR from anywhere, any device, and any care setting. By providing clinicians greater flexibility and portability in choosing appropriate workflows and devices, 3M Fluency Direct frees up more time for patient care.
"3M Fluency Direct has been life changing. Thanks to 3M, I save several minutes on every follow-up visit and about 10 minutes on every new consultation. And compared to documenting in the EHR without any speech recognition at all, 3M saves me 3 to 4 hours every day."
Dr. Peter Sloane
Founding Partner, Pulmonary and Critical Care Associates of Baltimore
"3M Fluency Direct is a great success. It makes the job of physicians – and eventually patient care – much more efficient and better overall with easier, more accurate workflows."

"In terms of the choice in 3M, number one was accuracy. Number two was accuracy. And number three was accuracy."

Chief Medical Informatics Officer, Flagler Hospital
At the core of 3M Fluency Direct’s game-changing, out-of-the-gate accuracy is the power of speech understanding. This proprietary technology combines best-in-breed speech recognition solutions with powerful natural language understanding (NLU), allows clinicians to speak in conversational tones, and improves accuracy over time. NLU enables the creation of rich documents that encapsulate both narrative and encoded information, as well as dictation directly into any application.

Expertise with 3M Fluency Direct and more than 200 EMRs and EHRs facilitates at-the-elbow coaching and system customisation to further enhance the experience.
