How are cardiologists using Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2?
Most cardiologists we support are now using Electronic Medical Records. They use Dragon to populate those aspects of the Record that are narrative. They tell the story of the patient encounter by dictating into text fields such as HPI, Treatment, Impression and Discharge Summary.
Does Dragon Medical work with any EMR?
Dragon works on any application running in Windows into which you can type. The simple answer is – if you can type there, you can dictate there using Dragon.
Does Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 have a cardiology vocabulary?
Yes. Cardiology is one of the base vocabularies in the current version of Dragon. Cardiologists have been using Dragon – and helping in its optimization for their field – for many years. Cardiologists new to Dragon Medical can expect 99% accuracy from first use as long as they are using a reasonably powerful computer, a high-quality microphone, and clear dictation style.
I don’t have an EHR yet. Can Dragon Medical still work for me?
Yes. Some cardiologists still begin with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 dictating into a word processor like Microsoft Word to generate medical records. We’ve been helping doctors make very beautiful, easy-to-read and easy to create, documents by combining Dragon Medical with Microsoft Word.
Can I use Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 in all my exam rooms?
Yes. Dragon is licensed per user which means that you can install it on as many PCs as you need.
