EHR Experts Have A Secret Weapon Against Excessive Data Entry – Dragon Naturally Speaking Medical Edition
It seems every time we make technological leap forward it comes with a brand new tedium associated with it. In the case of the electronic health records initiative, that tedium is all the data entry that has to be done for each patient.
We hear it all the time. Medical professionals saying, “Give us a break with the typing already.” Apparently the developers at Nuance heard those same grumbles and decided to do something about it.
Nuance took the core of its speech recognition software, Dragon Naturally Speaking, and jammed it full of medical knowledge and specialty terms to create Dragon Naturally Speaking Medical Edition, the perfect solution for the biggest single gripe medical professionals have about EHR. The result is software that allows you to navigate from application to application, form field to form field, and then enter the data at each stop, all by the sound of your voice.
It has been proven most people can speak three times faster than they can type. With the ability to navigate and enter data via the faster vehicle of speech, Dragon users can shave hours of time of data entry from their work day every single month. This is a brand new level of productivity, and without it, doctors and nurses are burning up hour after hour of their valuable time clicking a mouse, or trying to hit the right form field with a finger on the touch screen of a tablet.
It’s time to put an end to this madness, reclaim your time, and unleash the full power of EHR.
Here’s what several doctors have told Nuance about the Medical Edition of their software:
Dr. Jon Wahrenberger, Cardiologist, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
“Since using version 10, I’m discovering far fewer errors. The accuracy of version 10 is significantly better.”
Dr. Brian Zimmerman, Emergency Physician, Premier Health
“I just dictated for about 30 minutes in our Epic EMR system (using Dragon Medical 10) with only three mistakes. Pretty amazing!”
Dr. Pierce Sanders, Kaiser Permanente
“Wow! Fast! Accurate ! I didn’t think it could get any better.”
