Incorporating Dragon® Medical Practice Edition into Your Workflow

Using Dragon® Medical Practice Edition with a Tablet PC in the exam roomUsing Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 with a Tablet PC in the exam room

These systems often include an EMR package running on the tablet PC to allow the doctor to speak directly into the text boxes in the patient record. This is much quicker that typing into the EMR form and it improves the quantity and quality of documentation for the patient visit. If an EMR is not being used then the doctor can use his/her voice to call up an exam form template and speak into each of the desired fields. This is quick and easy for the doctor, allowing for more patient visits during the work day. Also documentation is already entered so no end of the day paperwork is necessary. Some points about this system:

  • It is often advisable for someone in the office to go back over the data entered into the EMR/template to insure Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2 interpreted the doctor's voice properly. A quick scan with minor changes is usually enough
  • The microphone is important. Many people use a wireless Bluetooth microphone to free the doctor's hands. Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 2's maker Nuance recommends the Calisto Bluetooth microphone.
  • Another option for a microphone is new Philips SpeechMike Air. This has the advantage of being wireless and also gives the doctor buttons at his finger tips to navigate easily through the forms.
