Dragon Medical Practice Edition Version 4 will eliminate your existing dictation system. The Doctor may be dictating into a voice recorder and handing the recordings to staff for typing. Perhaps the Doctor is directly typing into their medical records software. Alternatively, you may be using a third-party transcription service which is usually very expensive.
Dragon will eliminate these manual typing processes.
Once Dragon Medical is implemented the Doctor will be dictating directly into their medical records software such as Genie, Best Practice, Medical Director, and many others.
The Doctor will no longer be using a voice recorder in this scenario. The dictation will be completed instantly without any other help from staff or transcription companies. That is the best possible outcome for most medical practices as no more work is required.
Dragon Medical also supports digital voice recorders. The Doctor can continue to dictate into a voice recorder and hand the recordings to staff. The staff can then process that through the Dragon Medical software. That will produce all the text of the Doctor has dictated, saving staff about 85% of the typing. That text can be put into referral letters or medical records software. This is not as efficient as direct dictation, but for many Doctors it allows them to continue to use their existing workflow while greatly reducing typing.
We can set up either of these methods or both at the same time.
