Dragon Medical Practice Edition is a locally-installed, affordable, real-time speech recognition solution that helps clinicians dictate in their own words anywhere in the EHR—faster and more accurately than ever before. Dragon Medical Practice Edition allows clinicians to securely capture the patient story more naturally and efficiently to speed productivity, support thorough documentation and ease EHR usability.
Powered by our next generation speech engine, Nuance® Dragon® Medical Practice Edition 4 achieves 99% accuracy out of the box without voice profile training. Dragon Medical is the go-to speech recognition solution for more than 10,000 healthcare facilities and 500,000 physicians worldwide. Our solutions ensure 300 million patient stories get told accurately every year.
When doctors speak, your EHR listens
Physicians and other health care providers navigate and dictate medical decision-making and treatment plans directly into a patient’s electronic record and spend less time typing or clicking in the EHR. Clinicians can document patient stories more completely for improved documentation.
Made for small practices
Designed and priced exclusively for independent practices with fewer than 24 physicians, Dragon Medical Practice Edition gives clinicians access to uninterrupted, high-quality speech recognition even where reliable internet is not widely available—all with dynamic microphone adjustment and no profile training.
Highly accurate clinical speech recognition from word one
Works how you work
Dragon Medical Practice Edition speeds clinician productivity and improves EHR usability when clinicians create documentation with dictation and voice commands—three times faster than most people can type or click with a mouse. Clinicians build a personalized experience available across workstations by setting auto-formatting options and using a single voice command to create customized auto-texts for frequently dictated content. A movable DragonBar provides easy access to popular features and automatically collapses when not in use.
Amplified for medical use
Dragon Medical Practice Edition combines 90 medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies with acoustic models based on the unique way physicians speak—audio, syntax, style and structure—resulting in remarkable accuracy. Advanced Deep Learning technology constantly learns and adapts to voice and environmental variations—even during dictation—continuously improving performance.
Works where you work
Dictate within applications and EHR textbox fields, or use the Dragon dictation box to compose content—insert auto-texts, navigate template fields, dictate and edit—and transfer text with a simple voice command. Use voice to interact with select websites and web-based applications.
Safe and sound
Thorough narrative documentation not only provides richer patient details to the care team, but also ensures appropriate reimbursement for the care delivered. Dragon Medical Practice Edition supports HIPAA requirements for patient security and confidentiality by employing secure encryption methods throughout the workflow.
On the money in real-time
When clinicians create and self-edit their own documentation, data is available immediately and costs associated with transcriptionists are eliminated. Dictation allows clinicians to save at least 30 minutes a day. When clinicians have time to see more patients, practice profitability can grow.
Along with high performance on modern desktop and laptop Windows computers, Dragon Medical Practice Edition delivers documentation productivity on the go through compatibility with Windows 10 touchscreen devices. Hybrid touch and keyboard interaction work seamlessly for controlling the DragonBar and other features.
If people aren’t talking to Dragon, they’re talking about it
