Get artificial intelligence. Get ahead in documenting care.

Quickly and easily create high-quality clinical documentation at the point of care with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4.

Cutting edge technology brings efficiency to the clinic environment.  Powered by a next-generation speech engine, Nuance Dragon Medical Practice edition 4 delivers precise, accurate speech recognition allowing clinicians to dictate directly into a patient’s electronic record.  Spend less time typing and clicking in the electronic patient record system.

Superior speech recognition, amplified for medical use.

Distinct from non-medical speech recognition, Dragon Medical combines more than 60 medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies with acoustic models based on the unique way clinicians speak -audio, syntax, style, and structure – resulting in remarkable accuracy.  Dictate for real-time speech to text audio recordings to create clinical documentation.

The technical bit…

Advanced deep learning technology recognises and learns voice patterns, dialects, and accents. This significantly improves precision and refines performance even in environments with more ambient background noise, for example in a busy and noisy environment. This new technology as illustrated below has improved the decision-making process of the software, therefore enabling it to become more accurate and faster in response.

Improved decision making = faster and more accurate speech recognition!

Optimised for portable touchscreens

Along with high performance on modern desktop and laptop Windows computers, Dragon Medical 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.

Why would I want to use speech recognition software…

“The key benefit is that Dragon Medical Practice Edition buys me time in each of my consultations.  I gain a minute, I’m less stressed.  I actually enjoy working.” General Practitioner, Dr Alastair Dickson

Typical time saving per GP per day – Dr Alastair Dickson’s results

“The cost-savings just for GP time alone are frightening. It has made me realise just how much time and money a practice can save.”  GP and Health Economist, Dr. Alastair Dickson

Reduce the administration double handling:

Doctors can efficiently document patient care in their own words, spending less time typing and avoiding the dreaded ‘double handing’ digital dictation loop.
