Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 - the latest member of the Dragon Medical family.
By using Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2, clinicians— including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, therapists, and other care providers—can efficiently navigate and dictate medical decision-making and treatment plans directly into a patient’s electronic record.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 is designed and priced especially for smaller practices, and helps clinicians accelerate adoption of their chosen EHR/ EMR. Using Dragon Medical Practice Edition ensures clinicians document care more completely and ‘in their own words’. Clinicians using an EHR/ EMR powered by Dragon Medical have experienced substantially greater satisfaction than clinicians who use the EHR/ EMR without Dragon Medical.
Available only for independent practices of 24 physicians or less, Dragon Medical Practice Edition is 99% accurate ‘out of the box’ and includes a complete range of medical vocabularies. Dragon Medical Practice Edition lets clinicians use a narrative format to dictate the elements of a patient encounter where clinicians need to document care in their own words, including the History of Present Illness, Review of Systems, Physical Examination, and Assessment and Plan. Dragon Medical Practice Edition supports HIPAA patient confidentiality guidelines, a critical requirement for any practice concerned with patient confidentiality.
Clinicians also save additional time by using customized macros to enter frequently-dictated text with a single voice command. Overall, Dragon Medical solutions dramatically reduce the time clinicians spend documenting care—30 minutes or more a day, according to a number of studies.
Key Benefits of Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2:
- Improve care efficiency. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 offers virtually instant response time, saving clinicians valuable minutes in their day – no more waiting for transcribed reports or needing to type into their EHR/ EMRs.
- Reduce transcription and the cost of documentation. Using speech recognition technology, clinicians dictate, edit and sign medical records at the point of care, eliminating as much as $12,000 in annual transcription costs.
- Spend more time with patients. Increased accuracy means fewer errors to correct, which lets clinicians spend more time with patients, improving both quality of care and patient satisfaction.
- Improve documentation. Documentation with Dragon Medical speech recognition technology – as opposed to notes built by point-and-click EHR/ EMR templates alone – results in higher rates of reimbursement.
- Secure patient information. Dragon Medical Practice Edition supports HIPAA patient confidentiality guidelines.
- Improve physician satisfaction. With Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2, physicians look forward to practicing medicine – and getting home in time for dinner.
- Increase reimbursement. A major study by a physician practice in the Northeast determined that using Dragon Medical with an EHR/ EMR increases per-physician reimbursement by $10,000 per year per physician.
New Features in Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2:
- Makes Clinicians Even More Efficient. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 lets clinicians dictate faster and more accurately than ever before. This new version is over 20% more accurate than the previous version of Dragon Medical Practice Edition—meaning that clinicians will save time documenting care.
- Dictate anywhere in the EHR/ EMR. Dragon Medical Practice Edition allows clinicians to dictate anywhere in an EHR/ EMR system. Clinicians no longer have to click back and forth between information they’re reviewing and the EHR/ EMR’s dictation window. They dictate while reviewing information in Hidden Mode, which allows the clinician to place the dictation directly where he or she wishes.
- All new speech recognition engine improves recognition speed. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 improves recognition response time significantly. What’s more, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 boosts performance by delivering easier correction and editing options, and giving you more control over your command preferences, letting you get things done faster than ever before.
