Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 is easy to deploy and rich in end-user features and allows you to efficiently and completely document patient care in your own words, capturing them directly into the patient electronic record on your PC or iPhone or Android device.

Specialist medical vocabularies ensure significant accuracy "out-of-the-box" and to save even more time you can use customised macros for standard notes and "medical normals" by body system. A transparent dictation window makes it easy to dictate notes whilst simultaneously viewing lab results, images and flow sheets.

Enabling EHR adoption

How can clinicians efficiently document patient care in their own words, spending less time dictating, typing or clicking?

Dragon Medical Practice Edition makes it easier for doctors to document care into medical records using their voice, by enabling them to both dictate the “medical decision-making” of patient visits and navigate through the EHR using speech. This improves the quality and completeness of the patient note and saves doctors valuable time with each patient. With up to 99 percent accuracy, doctors dictate medical notes three times faster into an EHR, helping them save an average of 30 minutes a day through a more streamlined process.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition is the right solution for your clinical setting, as compared with non-medical Dragon offerings featuring among other functionalities: special medical vocabulary, EHR support, data encryption support, special medical formatting, medical search commands, and comes along with the Nuance professional microphone PowerMic II.

“Because it is easier and quicker to talk than to type…

…, patient letters created using Dragon Medical tend to be much more comprehensive and detailed. Previously, to keep up with the volume of correspondence, letters tended to be quite short and to the point. Their brevity could sometimes cause the recipient anxiety. Thanks to Dragon Medical, now we can issue more detailed letters to them. We are able to add in more reassurances about their condition or treatment, so as to alleviate their stress levels when they read the letter. This peace of mind is essential for patients. I would certainly recommend it to other medical professionals. It is not only the accuracy and the medical dictionaries that impress, but also the ability to send emails and search the internet easily.”
Dr. Erfan Javaheri, West Bar Surgery
