Nuance Announces Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac, version 4
Dragon Dicate 4 for Mac has long since been a staple part of the blogging diet. Either recording thoughts for transcribing later on or pacing around using Dragon Remote Microphone for a wireless dictating experience, Dragon Dictate v4 has been freakishly accurate.
Fast and Accurate Voice Recognition Improves Clinician Productivity, Providing More Time for Patient Care
Supporting Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10), Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac streamlines documentation workflow by allowing clinicians to dictate appointment and clinical notes directly into Mac-based Electronic Health Records (EHRs), such as MacPractice, and also use their voice while working within popular web, email and desktop applications such as Microsoft Office or Gmail.
New features include:
- Improved accuracy over version 3 for more than 90 medical specialties and subspecialties
- Support for OS X Yosemite (10.10), in addition to OS X Mavericks (10.9)
- Higher performance and faster editing with pure 64-bit application and improved memory management
- Support for full text control of email in Gmail, within Safari and Firefox.
- Automated voice to text for single-speaker pre-recorded audio files or podcasts with similar accuracy for medical terminology as your own voice recording.
- Support for “General English” vocabulary
“Clinicians enter the medical field to make a difference in patients’ lives – not to push paper. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac gives medical professionals back the time in their day to stay focused on patient care,”
said Peter Mahoney, Nuance’s chief marketing officer and general manager for Dragon.
“Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac is a fast and accurate tool that reduces the daunting task of medical record-keeping for sole practitioners and small practices who see high volumes of patients and need to document care quickly and accurately within their normal workflow.”
Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac adapts to a clinician’s voice and words over time, ensuring greater accuracy of patient details and information.
Because speaking is up to three times faster than typing, clinicians can capture important patient and symptom details without checkboxes or dropdown menus, allowing more time for delivering patient care. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac also gives clinicians the flexibility to add custom words unique to their location or patients, or custom voice commands to execute multiple steps with a simple voice command.
And, Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac’s new support for “General English” vocabulary ensures greater accuracy when clinicians dictate on their Mac for documents outside of medical work.
“Doctors and medical professionals are faced with more resource and time constraints than ever before – notably those running their own businesses and clinics. We have ensured that MacPractice continues to be certified compatible and integrated with this new version of Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac. By enabling them to dictate, format, and edit their notes by voice directly in MacPractice, clinicians can update clinical notes in patient records in a way that comes naturally– using their voice,”
said Mark Hollis, CEO, MacPractice.
