The rush towards computerized patient records is on. For medical practices, federal stimulus funds are now available to cover the cost of buying and deploying EHRs…and then some. But when physicians start using their EHRs, they’ll discover the truth: EHRs slow physicians down.

Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 4 helps clinicians – including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, therapists, and other care providers – efficiently navigate and dictate medical decision-making and treatment plans directly into a patient’s electronic record. Designed for small practices with 24 physicians or less, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 helps practices:

  • Improve documentation
  • Eliminate transcription costs
  • Increase physician satisfaction
  • Enhance efficiency
  • Increase practice profitability
  • Dragon Medical Practice Edition

Improve care efficiency. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 offers virtually instant response time, saving clinicians valuable minutes in their day – no more waiting for transcribed reports or needing to type into their EHRs.

Reduce transcription and the cost of documentation. Using speech recognition technology, clinicians dictate, edit and sign medical records at the point of care, eliminating as much as $12,000 in annual transcription costs.

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.

Improve documentation. Documentation with Dragon Medical speech recognition technology – as opposed to notes built by point-and-click EHR templates alone – results in higher rates of reimbursement.

Secure patient information. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 supports HIPAA patient confidentiality guidelines.

Improve physician satisfaction. With Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4, physicians look forward to practicing medicine – and getting home in time for dinner.

Increase reimbursement. A major study by a physician practice in the Northeast determined that using Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 with an EHR increases per-physician reimbursement by $10,000 per year per physician.

“I use the EHR for a lot of point-and-click, but for the subjective information, as well as my conclusions and impressions, that’s where Dragon Medical Practice Edition shines...I would never go back to life pre-Dragon Medical.”
