Nuance announces the new version of Dragon Medical Practice Edition designed for smaller practices to help physicians access real-time clinical information and document faster and more completely within electronic health records.
According to a National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, EHR adoption is expected to approach 80 percent by the end of 2013 for an estimated 300,000 physicians.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition makes it easier for physicians in small practices to document care into medical records using their voice, by enabling clinicians to both dictate the “medical decision-making” of patient visits and navigate through the EHR using speech. With up to 99 percent accuracy, physicians can dictate medical notes three times faster into an EHR, helping them save an average of 30 minutes a day through a more streamlined process. Other key updates include:
- Ensures proper documentation and a more complete record for appropriate outpatient reimbursement
- More than 30 new specialty vocabularies, supporting more than 90 medical specialties and subspecialty vocabularies
- Enables clinicians to use their favorite mobile device as a microphone to dictate medical records using an Android-powered smartphone or an Apple iPhone as well as traditional methods, such as PowerMics
By tapping into Nuance’s expertise in mobile devices and physicians’ love of mobile phones for their convenience, Dragon Medical Practice Edition now allows clinicians to use their favorite device as a microphone to dictate medical records using an Android-powered smartphone or an Apple iPhone as well as traditional methods, such as PowerMics. With approximately 74 percent of physicians using smartphones for work, this provides physicians more flexibility in choosing how to capture clinical documentation to fit their needs while providing a more comprehensive patient medical record.
