Nuance Announces Availability of Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac
Enables Doctors to Document Faster and More Completely Simply by Using their Voice
London, UK, October 10, 2013 – Nuance Communications, Inc. has announced the immediate availability of Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac. Designed specifically for small-to mid-sized practices, it can help to accelerate doctors’ transition to and adoption of the Electronic Patient Record (EPR) model, which is due by 2018. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac is powered by the same award-winning Dragon Medical speech recognition technology used by more than 200,000 medical professionals today, including the largest, most advanced healthcare providers.
As part of the transition to EPRs, many doctors are experiencing significant workflow interruptions that add hours onto their workday and impact the number of patients they are able to treat each day. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac lets them tackle their workload more efficiently and keep the focus on patient care, by enabling them to document and navigate within EPRs simply by using their voice.
Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac also allows physicians to navigate other Mac-based applications beyond the EPR - such as emailing messages to other medical professionals - by leveraging the fastest, most accurate medical speech recognition. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac’s speech recognition engine is up to 99 percent accurate out of the box and translates voice into text up to three times faster than most people can type. The solution also offers medical vocabularies covering more than 50 specialties, and is designed specifically for use by doctors, dentists and chiropractors.
Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac introduces exciting new features, offering the following key benefits for medical professionals:
Spend more time with patients: Doctors spend less time taking notes, filling out charts and completing documentation with Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac, leaving more time for patient care.
Create higher quality documentation in less time: Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac ensures proper clinical documentation because it understands the language that doctors speak, and users can further accelerate dictation by creating macros to insert with frequently used blocks of text.
Reduce costs, improve efficiency: Practices can eliminate transcription costs and reduce time spent on documentation to achieve faster, more accurate reports, while increasing practice volume and ensuring financial viability.
The Dragon Dictate Medical range is available now online from the Nuance store and starts at £649.99. An upgrade is available from £349.99.
