MacPractice, a Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac reseller partner, has announced immediate availability of Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac to users of MacPractice MD, DC, DDS and 20/20. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac is designed specifically for small- to mid-sized practices to help accelerate adoption of MacPractice’s electronic medical record system, MacPractice EMR. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac is powered by the same award-winning Dragon Medical speech recognition technology used by more than 200,000 clinicians today, including the largest, most advanced healthcare providers.
As part of the transition to EMRs, many doctors are experiencing significant workflow interruptions that add hours onto their workday and impact the number of patients they are able to treat each day. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac lets these clinicians more efficiently tackle their workload and keep the focus on patient care by enabling them to document and navigate within MacPractice EMR simply by using their voice.
Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac also allows doctors to navigate other Mac-based applications beyond the EMR, such as email messages to other caregivers, by leveraging the fastest, most accurate medical speech recognition. Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac’s speech recognition engine is up to 99 percent accurate out of the box and translates voice into text up to three times faster than most people can type. The solution also offers medical vocabularies covering more than 90 specialties, and is designed specifically for use by physicians, dentists and chiropractors
“Using Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac with MacPractice allows me to spend less time typing and more time with patients,” said Alec Goldenberg, MD. “With the demands being placed on physicians, and the disruptions in our typical day-to-day workflow, technology that improves productivity – like Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac and MacPractice – is invaluable. I have been using speech recognition for years in my office, and I see big improvements in this latest version. I especially like using a desktop application as it helps to improve recognition, expands my vocabulary, and I can easily create macros that save time.”
