We understand that past experience with medical voice recognition software may not have exhibited the kind of accuracy that you were hoping for. We are glad to report that with Paperless Office & Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition software you can now expect speeds of 160 words per minute and accuracy in the 98% to 99% range.

EMR Software with Medical Speech Recognition

Many doctors are avoiding the hurdle of manually entering patient data by using medical voice recognition software to speak commands and enter patient notes into their e-health record systems. Medical speech recognition functionality is not only helping to drive utilization of e-health record systems among doctors, it’s also helping to dramatically reduce the cost of medical transcription services.

The Physician’s Paperless Office® is an innovative electronic medical records system that is fully voice enabled. The system is designed to help physician practices improve quality of care, reduce risk, cut costs, and increase revenues. Appropriate for any sized medical practice—from a small, solo practice to a large, multi-provider/multi-location group—this feature-rich system allows you to create and maintain complete medical records faster and more efficiently than ever before with the use of medical voice recognition technology.

doctor using medical voice recognition softwareOur speech-enabled electronic medical records system offers numerous benefits such as documentation automation, secure storage, error reduction and effective exchange of patient data. This includes Initial Evaluations, Daily Notes, Lab results, Patient reports, SOAP Notes, Discharge Notes, Referral Notes, Visit Summaries, Progress Notes and much more.

Our EMR software has drop-down templates from which physicians can enter information about patients, such as during exams and in providing data about medical history. Our medical voice recognition software also provides the EMR an added boost by allowing doctors to add details that would otherwise be excluded from the health record or that has to be typed in.

It’s no question that medical voice recognition is helping to drive physician adoption of EMRs. It’s not the reason why EMR is getting adopted, but its one more feature that adds ease of use. In addition, the savings are enormous, as medical voice recognition functionality eliminates the need for transcription services.

Dragon® Medical 15: Helping Physician Practices Accelerate EMR Adoption


How can clinicians spend less time typing or clicking inside their EMR?


By using Dragon Medical voice recognition software, clinicians can efficiently navigate their EMR and dictate medical decision-making and treatment plans directly into a patient’s electronic record.

emr voice recognition softwareDragon Medical is designed and priced especially for practices. It helps clinicians in mid-sized practices provide more efficient, profitable and higher quality care. Dragon Medical voice recognition software is up to 99% accurate out of the box and includes medical vocabularies covering nearly 80 medical specialties and subspecialties.

Dragon Medical allows physicians to dictate in their own words, generating “once and done” documentation which they can dictate, edit and review in succession. Clinicians can further accelerate dictation by using macros to easily re-use frequently dictated text. This approach dramatically reduces the time physicians spend documenting care. Dragon Medical also lets clinicians use their own words to dictate progress notes, prescribe medication, and access test results so that they can readily embrace their EMR system and dramatically accelerate EMR adoption.

Dragon Medical supports HIPAA patient confidentiality guidelines and critical requirements for all practices.

With Dragon Medical 15, Practices Can Deliver Higher Quality Care

Clinicians receive a host of key advantages with Dragon Medical 15 medical voice recognition software, compared to Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 9 or Dragon NaturallySpeaking 15 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.
  • Secure patient information. Only Dragon Medical supports HIPAA compliance guidelines to protect patient security and confidentiality.
  • Improve clinician satisfaction. Clinicians who use Dragon Medical voice recognition software report that it significantly improves their enjoyment of practicing medicine. By allowing them to use their time more effectively and get home in time for dinner, clinician quality of life improves.

Dragon Medical 15 Yields Cost-Savings and Profitability

  • Providers enjoy significant cost reductions when they move from typing, handwriting or transcription— or upgrade to Dragon Medical 15 from previous medical versions or non-medical solutions:
  • Reduce the cost of documentation. Eliminate transcription by speech-enabling the EMR, freeing up resources to focus more on patients to help practice efficiency. Healthcare organizations that are using Dragon Medical 15 today are significantly lowering their transcription costs by hundreds of thousands—or even millions 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.
  • Reduce denials. More complete, accurate documentation improves coding effectiveness and provides richer detail per patient, giving physicians greater confidence to code at higher levels than with an EMR 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.
