Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4. Out-of-the-box affordability. Out-of-the-ordinary performance.
Quickly and easily create high-quality clinical documentation at the point of care with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 is the final word in speech recognition. Over 10,000 healthcare facilities and 500,000 physicians worldwide use Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 to ensure 300 million patient stories get told accurately every year.
Cutting-edge technology brings efficiency to the clinic environment. Powered by a next generation speech engine, Nuance® Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 4 achieves 99% accuracy out of the box without voice profile training. Physicians and other health care providers navigate and dictate medical decision-making and treatment plans directly into a patient’s electronic record and spend less time typing or clicking in the EHR. Available for independent practices of 24 or fewer physicians, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 is a locally-installed solution designed and priced especially for smaller practices that want to transform the documentation process.
Clinicians dictate in their own words anywhere in the EHR—faster and more accurately than ever before.
- Boost documentation efficiency for more time with patients. Quick and accurate performance allows clinicians to create text up to 5x faster than typing, improving EHR usability. Use voice to navigate, dictate and edit content inside EHR fields for increased productivity.
- Improve documentation quality to better inform care teams and administrative staff. More complete and accurate documentation not only provides richer patient details to the care team, but also ensures appropriate reimbursement for the care delivered.
- Save money, speed up turnaround time, grow revenue. When clinicians create and self edit their own documentation, data is available immediately and costs associated with transcriptionists are eliminated. When clinicians have time to see more patients, practice profitability can grow.
Superior speech recognition, amplified for medical use
Distinct from non-medical speech recognition, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 combines 90 medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies with acoustic models based on the unique way physicians speak—audio, syntax, style and structure—resulting in remarkable accuracy. Advanced Deep Learning technology constantly learns and adapts to voice and environmental variations—even during dictation—to refine performance. Dictate for real-time speech to text or transcribe audio recordings to create clinical documentation.
Simple setup, easy-to-use functions, dependable performance
In as little as 60 seconds, users gain access to uninterrupted, high-quality speech recognition even where reliable internet is not widely available—all with no profile training, and with dynamic microphone adjustment. Options and settings are consolidated into one easy-to-use dialog box for easy management of profile and auto-formatting options. A movable DragonBar provides easy access to popular features and automatically collapses when not in use. Customized macros for frequently dictated text can be created with a single voice command.
Optimized for portable touchscreens
Along with high performance on modern desktop and laptop Windows computers, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 delivers documentation productivity on the go through compatibility with Windows 10 touchscreen devices. Hybrid touch and keyboard interaction work seamlessly for controlling the DragonBar and other features.
Dictate within applications and EHR textbox fields, or use the Dragon dictation box to compose content—insert auto-texts, navigate template fields, dictate and edit—and transfer text with a simple voice command. Use voice to interact with websites and web-based applications.
