Within 1 hour to 1 week of our training, you will have 99-100% recognition accuracy routinely. There are just a few tricks to learn, then you'll be finishing your notes and heading home on time. Well, closer to on time, anyway.
If your practice has 25 or more physicians, is owned by a hospital or you would like to have enterprise class features, then you should consider Dragon Medical 360 | Network Edition.
How does Dragon Medical Practice Edition compare with non-medical Dragon products?
Nuance® Dragon® Professional Individual for PC and Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium 13 are excellent speech recognition products for “general purpose” home or business use. Built expressly for use by healthcare providers, Dragon Medical Practice Edition combines 90 medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies with acoustic models based on the unique way physicians speak—audio, syntax, style, and structure—giving clinicians a far superior dictation experience.
Powered by a next-generation speech engine, Dragon Medical Practice Edition achieves 99% accuracy out-of-the-box without voice profile training. Clinicians not only save the time and hassle of correcting errors or adding medical terms, but also benefit from a sophisticated context database biased to clinician behavior that compounds the value of the comprehensive medical vocabulary.
Further, Dragon Medical Practice Edition provides greater levels of information security—essential for the healthcare environment. Secure
encryption methods throughout the workflow support HIPAA requirements for patient security and confidentiality.
What EHRs work well with Dragon Medical Practice Edition?
Nuance collaborates with more than 150 EHR and healthcare technology leaders to make it easier for clinicians to document. The Dragon dictation box allows clinicians to compose content—insert auto-texts, navigate template fields, dictate, and edit—and transfer text into textbox fields of all major EHR systems with a simple voice command.
How is Dragon Medical Practice Edition licensed?
Each Dragon Medical Practice Edition user must have a unique license and be the sole user. A licensed user may install Dragon Medical P Practice Edition on no more than four individual devices. Do clinicians still need to use a keyboard and mouse? Clinicians can use Dragon Medical Practice Edition to automate their documentation workflow with voice. Clinicians can save countless clicks and keystrokes with powerful speech commands for navigation and other tasks, as well as auto-texts that quickly generate common content.
How does Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 compare to previous versions?
Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 was built on cutting-edge technology and then honed for medical use, resulting in superior performance from the start without training. In addition, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 features enhanced usability, improved help, and compatibility with portable touchscreen devices and select websites.
Can I use other versions of Dragon along with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4?
Only one version of Dragon desktop software can be installed and used on each device. Running other versions of Dragon speech recognition solutions concurrently with Dragon Medical Practice Edition is not supported.
