Hosted in the cloud, Dragon Medical One removes the need for software maintenance from healthcare organisations, allows information capture outside the four walls of the hospital, and allows for direct interoperability with Electronic Medical Records (EMRs). Once installed, clinicians simply open the application, choose the section they want to document and start speaking. The electronic medical record will be updated directly. DMO can be used across any device, fixed or mobile, transforming any workstation into a potential dictation station and accelerating the process drastically. Speech recognition also brings a level of precision that improves the quality of clinical documentation and helps mitigate medical legal risks associated with it.
With 400 million minutes of cloud-based speech recognition processed annually worldwide, and a track record of 99% accuracy, Nuance’s speech recognition technology introduces a new way to document health information, with existing users producing documentation up to 45 percent faster, and capturing up to 20 percent more relevant content1.
“Healthcare professionals in Australia generate millions of documents every year. It is a cumbersome process which modernisation is overdue, to adjust to the increasing pace of healthcare, allow practitioners to reinvest time on their patients, but also bring relief to their workflows and avoid mental health issues and burnouts.” said Simon Wallace, Chief Clinical Information Officer at Nuance. “With cloud-based speech recognition, the process is faster and more flexible. Practitioners can document information from their patient interactions at anytime and anywhere, saving time that can be reinvested in patient care.”>Flexible Solutions Improve Physician Satisfaction and Patient Experience
To support the launch and assist with compliance with Australian federal and provincial patient privacy regulations, Dragon Medical One is hosted in Microsoft Azure certified hosting infrastructures.
With Dragon Medical One running in Microsoft Azure, clients benefit from a zero-speech server footprint. Nuance can deliver its speech recognition software with responsiveness and performance across devices, including thin client and virtual deployments. Moving heavy processing workloads to Azure, eliminates that burden for clients who can easily run Dragon Medical One with minimal network impact. In addition, Nuance can easily conduct software updates, ensuring clients have and are using Nuance’s latest innovations.
Dragon Medical One is a scalable solution that supports acute and ambulatory IT infrastructures. Using Dragon Medical One, healthcare practitioners enjoy a consistent experience and workflow regardless of location. This is especially meaningful in today’s fast-paced hospital environment where physicians regularly move between hospitals, clinics, home offices, various EMR systems, and other software applications
“Expanding Dragon Medical One to Australia, we hope to accelerate the adoption of this technology to help physicians save time and cost. Our network of EMR partners will certainly help achieve that”, said Michael Clark, Sr. Vice President, General Manager, Provider Solutions with Nuance. “With less time spent on administrative tasks, physicians can spend more time focused on their first priority – their patients.”, he adds."
We do not have a specific release date on when you will be able to order the new Dragon Medical one cloud-based voice recognition solution for medical professionals however it looks like it's not too far away.
Please note that this does not replace Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4, it is an alternative solution where cloud-based options are more effective such as in a hospital or when moving between many locations. Dragon Medical One is an alternative product which has a different feature set for a very specific requirement. We will continue to sell the Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4.2 as it is an excellent product for most small to medium medical centres.
