Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 Speech Recognition Software
The latest member of the Dragon Medical family, it's designed and priced especially for smaller practices to help clinicians accelerate adoption of their chosen EHR. Using Dragon Medical Practice Edition ensures clinicians document care more completely and 'in their own words'. Clinicians using Dragon Medical solutions have experienced substantially greater satisfaction than clinicians who use the EHR without Dragon.
Available only for practices of 24 physicians or less, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 is 99% accurate 'out of the box' and includes medical vocabularies covering more than 90 medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies. 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 narrative 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. It also supports HIPAA patient confidentiality 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 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, This solution dramatically reduce the time clinicians spend documenting care-saving 30 minutes or more a day, according to a number of studies.

Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 Features
Turns your voice into text with up to 99% accuracy. Dragon Medical Practice Edition is over 20% more accurate 'out of the box' than the previous version.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition runs on a variety of hardware, from small netbooks to high-powered servers. The software automatically detects hardware resources and sets up the recommended configuration. Its state-of-the-art technology takes advantage of advances in hardware and runs in multiplethreads automatically when multi-core hardware is detected, to achieve better recognition performance.
A percentage of misrecognitions can be caused by simple audio quality issues, such as incorrect microphone connection or placement, background noise, and microphone out of range or low on battery. Dragon Medical Practice Edition automatically detects poor audio input; it then alerts the user (in various ways depending on the issue), offering advice to remedy the situation. This lets Dragon Medical Practice Edition use the best audio possible - an important factor for accuracy.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition significantly improves recognition response time. The software is also faster than previous editions when selecting application menu items by voice, or executing voice commands that perform actions within applications (e.g., "insert page break", "make that red", etc.).
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.
Help System and Tutorials
The Help system incorporates new tips and illustrations, a redesigned Tutorial, short videos, and easy access to related details such as a glossary of key terms.
Use your iPhone and Android devices for speech recognition input.
Navigating the Computer Desktop
Dragon Medical Practice Edition now supports more voice commands to show common Windows® elements, including the desktop and Control Panel, or folders such as My Documents and My Pictures. New commands enable users to effortlessly switch to a specific window (Dragon Medical displays a numbered list so the user can just say the number of the desired window). In addition, Dragon Medical Practice Edition allows shorter names for starting popular applications (e.g., "start Microsoft Word" instead of "start Microsoft Office Word 2007").
Smoother fast-forward and rewind behaviors are now available and users now have options to control speed and volume.
Initial Training Time Reduced for Digital Recording Devices
Creating a new user profile for a digital recorder, or adding a digital recorder as a new audio source for an existing user profile, is now much faster: the minimum reading time required to train Dragon Medical Practice Edition with a recorder has been reduced from 15 to 4 minutes. That means clinicians can spend more time providing patient care.
Supports HIPAA Guidelines
Dragon Medical Practice Edition protects sensitive and confidential patient information by supporting encrypted network file storage of speech files, helping your organization satisfy HIPAA privacy and confidentiality guidelines. Dragon Medical Practice Edition features secure encryption methods, which provide even greater levels of information security.
Medical professionals can navigate and dictate inside EHR application software. Nuance Healthcare's Dragon Medical Certification Program, ensures compatibility with most EHR vendors' latest releases.
Improved Hidden Mode
Users can dictate while reviewing lab or radiology test results and save when finished anywhere in the EHR.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition contains vocabularies covering more than 90 medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies, which ensures high dictation accuracy.

Howard H., CIO Review by Saves both time and transcription costs
Price Value Quality
Dragon Medical V. 2 is a significant improvement over the previous medical version. Accuracy, even with Spanish or Oriental accents is excellent if the user takes some time to train it. Dictating directly into the electronic medical records system for routine follow-up visits saves both time and transcription costs. (Posted on 9/3/2014)
Radiologist Review by Dr. James Brigham
Quality Price Value
I purchased Dragon Medical to help me navigate with my Allscripts EMR. I was able to demo the software over the phone and was quite impressed in how accurate it was with no training. My main reason for purchasing was so that I did not have to deal with the the every day hassles of our EMR system. I am very happy and pleased by this purchase and recommend it to anyone needing voice recognition with their EMR. (Posted on 6/6/2014)
Once I spent some time, it was great Review by Richard B.
Quality Price Value
I'll be honest, at first I was a bit skeptical about this software. I've seen some of Matt's videos about the software and even attended a webinar going over how the software works. I purchased the software deciding to give it a try, and at first I was a bit out of element. The software was definitely a new technology that I have never used before, so I took it with a grain of salt that I would have to spend some time in the software learning it. After about an hour or so of playing with the software, things just started to click for me in the software. I was able to make basic dictations and I did so with roughly a 95-96% accuracy which I was impressed with. After doing some more basic training in the software I routinely get around 99% accuracy and I'm only two weeks into using the software. I have already started to recommend this product to everyone in my medical facility! (Posted on 11/29/2012)

I use the EHR for a lot of point-and-click, but for the subjective information, as well as my conclusions and impressions, that's where Dragon Medical Practice Edition shines...I would never go back to life pre-Dragon Medical. (Posted on 9/14/2011)
