Introducing...Dragon Medical Practice Edition!
Available only for practices of 24 physicians or less,
Dragon Medical Practice Edition is 99% accurate “out
of the box” and includes medical vocabularies covering
nearly 60 medical specialties and subspecialties. It allows
clinicians to dictate in their own words, generating “once
and done” documentation, which they can then review.
Dragon Medical Practice edition lets clinicians use a narra-
tive format to dictate the elements of a patient encounter
where clinicians need to document care in their own words,
including the History of Present Illness, review of Systems,
Physical examination, and assessment and Plan. Dragon
Medical Practice edition supports HIPaa patient confiden-
tiality guidelines, a critical requirement for any practice
concerned with patient confidentiality.
Clinicians also save additional time by using customized
macros to enter frequently-dictated text with a single voice
command. additionally, the Dragon Medical template
Library—a library of more than two dozen macros for
standard notes and an extensive list of “medical normals”
by body system—facilitates rapid note creation. Overall,
Dragon Medical solutions dramatically reduce the time
clinicians spend documenting care—saving 30 minutes or
more a day, according to a number of studies.

can be caused by simple audio quality issues such as
incorrect microphone connection or placement, back-

Smart corrections. In the past, corrections entered
using the keyboard were not incorporated into the
user profile. Now when a user dictates something and
retypes it to correct a misrecognition, Dragon Medical
Practice edition identifies this as a correction and uses
it to adapt the user’s profile, improving the software’s
accuracy over time.
