Quality documentation for quality care

The final word in speech recognition

Through deep learning technology and extensive medical vocabularies based on the unique way clinicians speak, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 puts Nuance’s leading artificial intelligence (AI)-powered technology in the hands of hard-pressed GPs in smaller, independent practices.

When doctors speak, your EPR listens

Clinicians can document patient stories more completely and in their own words—enabling them to update the history of present illness, review of symptoms, physical examination and assessment and plan in real time.

Made for small practices

Designed exclusively for GP surgeries and practices of 24 clinicians or fewer, Dragon Medical Practice Edition is a ‘partner’ to a GP’s and practice manager´s work rather than just a productivity tool. It feels super-fast and super-smooth, rarely interrupting the dictation flow.

Improve work-life and your patients’ experience of care

With the burden of clinical documentation reduced, GPs are able to capture the detail of the consultation into the EPR faster, more efficiently and in greater detail without increasing the time pressures of their busy surgery.

- Artificial intelligence

Using your voice as an interface, the AI in the Dragon Medical Practice Edition uses acoustic and language learning programs to interpret your voice and by doing so it replaces traditional methods of typing, pointing and clicking with keyboard and mouse. You are able to do a previously time-consuming part of your job – capturing and updating the patient story within clinical documentation – much more naturally, quickly and accurately.

- Enhanced usability

The newly designed DragonBar provides easy access to popular capabilities and automatically collapses when not in use freeing up screen space. User profiles that contain information about the user's language and allow more accurate, user-specific speech recognition can now be created with just a few mouse clicks.

- EPR navigation

Dragon Medical Practice Edition lets clinicians navigate any Windows®-based EPR system using voice commands – three times faster than most people can type or click with a mouse – supporting EPR adoption.

- Win back time

Through increased documentation efficiency, it allows for more time with patients, improved quality to better inform care teams and staff, and increased turnaround time and cost savings. Using speech recognition technology, clinicians dictate, edit and sign medical records right at the point of care – saving an hour or more clinical documentation time per day. So that your people can focus on what matters most - your patients.

- Fast to install and run

Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition is a powerful speech to text tool that is exclusively sold and installed via our network of Nuance certified partners, who will use their experience of GP systems and work practices to integrate Dragon Medical tightly into your practice workflows and everyday documentation and train you and your team to make the most out of your investment from day one.
