Nuance Healthcare speech recognition software also increases efficiency and helps cut the cost of clinical documentation by automatically transforming dictations into complete, formatted documents.
Using front-end speech recognition, doctors, clinicians and other healthcare professionals can directly dictate into an EHR, RIS/PACS system, or other clinical information system, self-edit and electronically sign reports in one sitting without the need for transcription. Doctors save even more time with the ability to use voice commands to quickly navigate through dictations and reports.
Users also have the option of creating speech recognized first drafts ready for editing by medical secretaries, greatly increasing productivity over traditional transcription.
Other benefits include:

  • Quicker documentation and document turnaround
  • Better patient care from increased accuracy and more complete records
  • Reduced transcription costs
  • Increased productivity
  • Increased doctor and clinician satisfaction
  • Ability to dictate into EHR, RIS/PACS, or other information systems
  • Voice navigation of information systems
  • Facilitates EHR adoption
  • Allows a variety of dictation options including work stations, dictation devices, and phones

DRAGON MEDICAL BENEFITS

Save Time

In healthcare, time is one commodity always in short supply. There are discharge letters and countless other documentation that have to reach others quickly, even as transcriptionists are dealing with an ever-increasing avalanche of paperwork. With Dragon Medical, clinical reports can be dictated up to 3 times faster than if they were typed. And computer entry can be bypassed all together with information entered directly into clinical applications, significantly cutting the time and steps needed to document care.

Cut Costs

In the face of mounting financial challenges facing healthcare institutions, Dragon Medical can significantly improve productivity and efficiency with speech recognition instead of traditional typing, handwriting and transcription. And a host of templates, built-in formatting rules, custom voice commands, and other productivity tools allow for even greater efficiency, accuracy and savings. On average, healthcare organizations using Dragon Medical report transcription cost savings of anywhere from $15,000 to $40,000 per doctor each year.

Increase Accuracy

With Dragon Medical, you can share information with colleagues, assured that historical narratives and other information that is dictated directly into clinical applications are clear and accurate. Medical formatting rules help ensure clear and accurate reports and keep. (Remove and keep)

Provide Better Care & Service

Quality care is the top priority for all healthcare professionals and Dragon Medical not only helps ensure more timely and accurate records as part of that care, it also frees up time and resources that would normally be used for transcription. Those resources can then be shifted to other aspects of patient care and satisfaction.

New to the Dragon Medical 360 Network Edition, the enhanced profile optimizer tool called the Language Model/Acoustic Model Optimizer now runs the Acoustic Model/Language Model Optimization (ACO/LMO) software offline on a dedicated server. That means dictation is no longer prevented while ACO/LMO is running and has meant dramatic improvements in the accuracy of recognition.
The Network Edition also assures easy access with secure passwords and logins, single sign-on, and IT-configured Active Directory support.

PowerScribe 360 real-time speech recognition options include

  • Delegated Editing - A transcription/correction workflow combined with front-end speech recognition is perfect for radiologists not editing their own reports. A speech-recognized draft is sent to a medical secretary for formatting and corrections. Since dictation no longer has to be keyed in, the time and cost involved in transcription are greatly reduced with increased accuracy. 
  • Self-Editing with Nearly Instant Turnaround - Radiologists are able to view text as they dictate and can edit using any combination of speech, keyboard, and mouse. Microphone controls and voice commands can also be used to make corrections as well as navigate the document, with spoken changes immediately recognized.
  • Auto-Loading Macros - Mapped to procedure codes, macros can be triggered by a number of modifiers, including gender and patient age. Voice commands can be used to navigate and edit numeric fields, pick lists and text blocks.
  • Auto-Structured Reporting - Radiologists can override a macro’s structure format with report content automatically structured using Natural Language Understanding (NLU). The radiologist then gets a final report to edit and review.

 

Expandable and scalable, PowerScribe 360 is a lightweight, browser based package that offers true multisite architecture and allows for better integration of custom applications with a Web Services API.
