and Drives Enhanced Documentation Quality
Dragon Medical 360 | Network Edition for Epic pairs the industry’s fastest, most accurate medical speech recognition technology from Nuance with more than 1,000 customized EHR commands to enhance physician productivity. Healthcare providers also benefit from the following established Dragon Medical customizations:
Today, more than 50 percent of U.S. physicians use Nuance speech recognition to spend more time with patients and less time documenting. In addition, nearly 80 percent of provider organizations using Epic also partner with Nuance because of their tight integration. This integration makes clinical documentation easier for physicians, while simultaneously creating higher quality and more structured data, which are essential for managing healthcare today. Many of these organizations have implemented and trained physicians on Dragon Medical and the EHR in unison in order to promote adoption and workflow integration from the start.
This customized version allows physicians to more seamlessly dictate progress notes, medical history and physicals, assessments and the care plan directly into the EHR. It also increases patient engagement by reducing physician time spent documenting because of the multitude of commands that are now voice-enabled. Physicians spend up to 30 percent of their time documenting care in an EHR. With Nuance speech recognition, physicians can cut that time by 20-30 minutes per day.
