NZ Doctors endorse it

"I run a busy specialist medical practice. I dictate anywhere between 30 and 70 pages of letters a week; and I do a substantial amount of medico legal work which requires the drafting of reports that on average run to about five or six pages of dictated A4 text...A test run on Dragon showed that the system was able to replicate my dictation accurately with very little training... I have not employed a typist since. I recovered the cost of the system within about 6 weeks."
Peter Blake FRACS

"I have been using your Dragon software for a number of years in my general medical practice. I am extremely satisfied with this product, and very impressed with the ease-of-use and accuracy.  I use the product all day, every day to dictate clinical notes, referral letters to specialists and hospital clinics and internal and external e-mail. Because of the speed and ease-of-use my medical records are more detailed and accurate.  Referral letters are a breeze... I am not using the services of a typist at all. This product has undoubtedly increased my productivity, and I am able to get more work done in less time."

Dragon suits your individual clinical workfow

Some clinicians still prefer to use secretarial support to finalise documents or ensure the letters are entered into the correct patient record before disbursement. Dragon Medical integrates with the most widely used digital transcription products used in NZ today:

This offers the flexibility of back-end (completely transparent to clinicans) or front-end (authors use speech recognition directly) workflow, or a combination of both. 
These improvements resolve the issues that have restricted the use of speech recognition in some healthcare working environments.

Front-end Speech Recognition

  • Authors can create their own documents inside or independent to the dictation software using a Philips SpeechMike or headset microphone.
  • Documents can then be self-edited (for minor corrections), or sent to a typist for correcting as requried.
  • Speech Recognition is also available outside of the dictation software for dictating emails etc...

Back-end Speech Recognition

  • Completely transparent to the author - they do not even need to know speech recognition is being used.
  • Dictation is transcribed in the background and the typist is presented with a draft document, ready for correction.
  • Typist can correct mistakes using keyboard and foot-pedals as normal.
  • Predefined templates can be used, or the typist can simply copy and paste text into other applications.
  • Corrections are fed back into the speech recognition system to improve the accuracy of future transcription.
