    Dragon Medical Practice Edition Specifications

    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 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 helps practices:

    • Improves the speed and accuracy of documentation
    • Accelerates physician EHR adoption
    • Dramatically reduces transcription costs
    • Allows physicians to spend more time with patients
    • Captures the patient story in the clinician’s own words
    • Supports higher level of reimbursement, lower number of denials
    • Improves clinician satisfaction
    • Supports HIPAA guidelines to protect patient confidentiality


    • More accurate than ever
      In clinical settings, Dragon Medical Practice Edition is 15% more accurate than Dragon Medical 10—and 33% more accurate than Dragon Professional 11 when used in clinical settings.
    • Recognition speed
      Dragon Medical Practice Edition improves recognition response time significantly. 
    • EHR support
      Navigate and dictate inside EHR software: History of Present Illness, Review of Systems, and Assessment and Plan.
    • Medical vocabularies
      Covers nearly 60 specialties and subspecialties.
    • Regional accent support
      Accented speakers get higher “out-of-the-box” recognition with advanced adaptation techniques and accent-specific acoustic models.
    • Hidden mode
      Dictate anywhere in the EHR, eliminating navigation between EHR screens and the notes window.
    • Dragon Medical Template Library
      Includes library of macros for standard notes and “medical normals” by body system.
    • Smart configuration
      Automatically detects hardware resources. Its state-of-the-art technology takes advantage of advances in hardware and runs in multiple threads automatically when multi-core hardware is detected for better recognition performance
    • Recognition analytics
      Automatically detects poor audio input and alerts the user, offering advice to remedy the situation and improve accuracy.

    Nuance® PowerMic II Specifications

    Speech Recognition Hand Microphone for use with Dragon® Medical Practice Edition or EHR

    The PowerMic™ II from Nuance is specially designed for enhanced physician productivity, providing ergonomic control of both standard dictation and speech recognition functions. The PowerMic II microphone offers simplified, thumb-control operation for dictating, navigating, reviewing, and editing speech recognition generated documentation.

    Full Dictation Control

    The PowerMic II advances physician Pc dictation to a new level, making it easier and faster to control voice recording, navigate and select fields in on-screen templates and standard reports, and move throughout recognized text reports for review and editing. In addition to providing complete dictation control, the PowerMic II incorporates full-function, Microsoft® compatible, PC-Mouse capabilities into the microphone, to reduce the need for care givers to continually move between the microphone, mouse, and keyboard.

    Using the PowerMic II, users can rapidly navigate report template fields, then record and use "voice fill-in" capabilities to insert recognized text into report template fields. By combining an ergonomic hand microphone with Pc mouse functions, physicians will gain new levels of dictation speed, ease-of-use, and productivity
