Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2: The Right Solution for Practices with Up to 24 Physicians

Introducing Dragon  Medical Practice 2 BoxDragon Medical Practice Edition 2. Dragon Medical Practice 2 was built from the ground up with today's small medical practice in mind. Designed to save the practitioner time and money from the moment the box is opened, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 rewrites the rules for speech based medical documentation.

The latest version of Dragon Medical is available to practices with 24 or less providers, with a larger enterprise installation necessary for larger organizations.

Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 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 2 supports HIPAA patient confidentiality guidelines, a critical requirement for any practice concerned with patient confidentiality.

Possibly the most time saving feature of Dragon Medical voice recognition is the ability to easily create "templates". Simply put, a template is when you dictate one phrase, and Dragon types an entire passage, signature, or any other text and graphic combination you can dream up. No more dictating the same lengthy paragraphs time and time again. Combined with variable data fields, you can easily dictate customized medical records and observances in a fraction of the time it normally takes.

Navigating through the various fields of todays EMR is time consuming and counter- productive. Do it by voice as you dictate without losing your train of thought.

Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 can be used on many different desktops, laptops, and notebooks. Dragon Medical will adjust to your computers specifications during the installation to optimize Dragon to work in your existing environment.

Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 Makes Clinicians More Efficient

Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 is 15% more accurate out of the box than it's predecessor. Studies have shown that time saving technology is among the top desire of medical practices in the United States. With today's coding and reimbursement process an investment in technology that saves time will also drastically increase profitability and job satisfaction.

Dictate anywhere in the EHR. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 allows clinicians to dictate anywhere in an EHR system, such as while reviewing Lab Results, Patient History, or Current Medications. Clinicians no longer have to click back and forth between information they’re reviewing and the EHR’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.

With Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2, Practices Can Deliver Higher Quality Care

Clinicians receive a host of key advantages with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 compared to Dragon Medical 10 or Dragon NaturallySpeaking non-medical solutions:

  • 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.
  • Dictate in their own words. Dragon Medical's freetext dictation capability supports more detailed History of Present Illness, more flexible Review of Systems, and more descriptive Assessment and Plan - the "medical decision-making" aspects of the note - which give referring clinicians and ancillary providers a clearer and more detailed patient assessment and prognosis.
  • Medical information at their finger tips. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 offers multiple voice shortcuts for searching medical information on the web. Clinicians can now search medical data via a single command on WebMD®, UpToDate®, PubMed®, and ICD-9. These commands can be said at any time without even having an Internet browser open. These commands combine multiple clicks into one fast command for the busy clinician. Simply say, “Search UpToDate for Wellbutrin contraindications,” and Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 and UpToDate take you there.
  • Secure patient information. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 supports HIPAA compliance guidelines to protect patient security and confidentiality.
  • Improve physician satisfaction. Physicians who use Dragon Medical solutions report that it significantly improves their enjoyment of practicing medicine. Dragon Medical helps them use their time more effectively and get home in time for dinner, thus improving physician quality of life.

Dragon Medical Yields Cost Savings and Profitability

Clinicians enjoy significant cost reductions and productivity boosts when they move from typing, handwriting, or transcription—or when they upgrade to Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 from previous medical versions or non-medical solutions:

  • Reduce the cost of documentation. Eliminate transcription by speech-enabling the EHR system, freeing up resources to focus more on patients to help increase practice efficiency. Healthcare organizations that are using Dragon Medical today are significantly lowering their transcription costs by hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
  • Support higher quality and more complete documentation. Using Dragon Medical results in higher levels of reimbursement than notes built by "point and click" EMR templates.
  • Support higher quality and more complete documentation. Using Dragon Medical results in higher levels of reimbursement than notes built by point-and-click EHR templates alone.
  • Reduce denials. More complete, accurate documentation improves coding effectiveness and provides richer detail per patient, giving clinicians greater confidence to code at higher levels than with an EHR system alone.
  • Increase practice volume. Faster, more accurate response reduces time spent on documentation, allowing clinicians to see more patients and increase practice revenue and profitability.

Dragon Medical: A Leading Solution for Practicing Clinicians

The Dragon Medical solutions family is the leading speech recognition solution in healthcare today. Dragon Medical technology has been chosen by more than 180,000 physicians worldwide to document clinical records and dictate correspondence, making it the most widely used speech recognition solution for physicians. Clinicians should use Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 with EHR systems such as AllscriptsTM MyWayTM, Allscripts ProfessionalTM, NextGen Ambulatory EHR, eClinicalWorks®, athenahealth® EHR, Henry Schein MicroMD®, Practice Fusion, Greenway®, and dozens more Windows®-based EHR software products.

Even rarely used medical terms appear in Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 the first time clinicians say them. Clinicians don’t need to add or train words with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2.

Whether the clinician’s country of origin is India, China, Pakistan, England, the U.S., or Australia, Dragon Medical solutions recognize his or her speech patterns because it has heard them before.

At any time, no matter what is active on the screen, you can automatically create and address an email. For example, while reviewing a Web site, you may need to send an email to colleagues. Just say,"send email to Jon Smith and Raphael Sanchez," and Dragon will activate your email program, create a new email and put the contact name(s) you said into the "to:" box. Or to schedule a group meeting, you can say, "Schedule meeting with Name of Saved Distribution List ," and Dragon jumpstarts the process by opening a new calendar entry in Outlook and adding the selected contact(s).

New FeatureDragon Voice Shortcuts for Web Search

Make searching the Web faster and easier. Just say a command containing your desired search words, such as "Search the Web for financial management resources," or "Search maps for Italian restaurants in Burlington Mass.," and Dragon will use the default search engine and Web browser to enter your dictated term(s) in the search field and return the results. You can also search specific sites or search the Web for a specific type of information using commands such as "Search Wikipedia for George Washington Carver," or"Search eBay for Bluetooth headsets." Sites supported by Dragon Voice Shortcuts include Google, Yahoo, eBay, Wikipedia, YouTube and more. See the feature highlight.

New FeatureDragon Voice Shortcuts for Desktop Search

Search the computer as directly as the Web, by dictating the word(s) to find documents, emails and web browsing history. For example, you can say,"Search computer for launch plans," and Dragon will complete the search using Google Desktop or Windows desktop search. In addition, commands such as,"Find an email about the Robinson report" directly open the top email containing the dictated keywords. Searching the computer has never been faster - or easier.

New FeatureQuick Voice Formatting ("Delete | Copy | Bold | Underline | Italicize")

Rather than selecting the relevant word(s) or passage and commanding what to do with that text (e.g., "Select very, (pause) Bold That"), you can now directly name the desired text with the desired action in a single voice command, such as "Bold very." Just like in the familiar "Select" commands, you can even designate a whole passage by quoting its first and last word(s).

New FeatureNew UI Look and Feel

Dragon 13 introduces new graphical icons to enhance the DragonBar user interface, including a larger microphone icon, making the product easier to use.

New FeatureImproved Enterprise Security Features (encrypt macros for distribution)

Dragon 13 offers a command-line utility to let Value Added Resellers and IT departments encrypt custom commands before distributing them.

New FeatureMore Flexible Enrollment for younger speakers and users with certain speech challenges

Reading an acoustic training text efficiently teaches one's voice to the software, and Dragon 13 offers an easier way to do it: print or view the entire text and record it at your own pace - without needing to satisfy the validation done by the software in the original prompt screens. By making it easier to train the product to one's voice, Dragon 13 improves the experience for younger users and users with certain speech challenges. In addition, the Dragon 13 setup will prompt for the users age as well as some other basic demographics. Understanding that generations speak differently improves accuracy right out of the box.

New FeatureRegional Accent Support

Following a significant data collection effort and research, Dragon 12 and 13 incorporates improved acoustic models for better coverage of non-native and regional accents. Together with more powerful adaptation techniques, this will help everyone get better recognition accuracy - from the very first use.

New FeatureBetter control of commands vs. dictation on the Web

Dragon 13 helps ensure a comfortable experience on the Web, addressing the concern that words you mean to dictate may be interpreted as a command, even if said in isolation. Dragon 13 provides finer options for optimal comfort on the Web whether you intend dictation or action: one can disable HTML commands and also require saying "Click" for hyperlinks separately, without disabling dictation support. In addition, Dragon 13 replaces some existing single-word HTML commands with multiple-word equivalents, to avoid confusion with those single words meant as dictation.

New FeatureDragonTemplates with Voice Fields

When creating Text-and-Graphics commands, you can now include variable fields to easily create templates that can be filled out by voice or by hand.

New FeatureAuto Configuration for Optimal Performance Based on System Profile

During installation, Dragon 13 automatically analyzes your PC's resources and changes default settings as needed to increase speed; this may include moving the Speed vs. Accuracy slider towards speed and disabling the Natural Language commands in some applications. The users can later change these options if they wish. In addition, DNS13 gives finer control over the support for Natural Language commands, which means users can gain speed if they only use Natural Language commands in some applications. One can disable these large sets of flexible command wordings separately for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Corel WordPerfect.

New FeatureFormatting and Word Properties Interface Enhancements

Dragon 13 gives easier and finer control over the form, spacing and capitalization of items written in various contexts (e.g., inserting a space before or after, capitalizing the next word, or using alternate forms like "Fig." instead of "figure" before numerals.) For instance, if you want all numbers between zero and ten to be written as numerals, you can now simply set this with just one check on the Formatting dialog.

New FeatureEmbedded Data Collection Tool

A New User Wizard screen invites users to participate in a program designed to collect data to improve the overall accuracy of Dragon NaturallySpeaking. The option is off by default.
