Will Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 work for ophthalmology?
Yes. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 has an ophthalmology specific vocabulary. The product is optimized with all ophthalmology terms and context (the way ophthalmologists dictate). Ophthalmology is a very particular specialty of medicine. There are many terms that are specific to this specialty, and that Dragon handles very well. A few common ophthalmology terms must be manually customized for consistency. These are easily done by our Dragon experts.
Does Dragon work with ophthalmology specific EMRs?
Yes. Most ophthalmologists use EMRs specific to their specialties that are not shared with other branches of medicine. To date, Dragon Medical works with every ophthalmology-specific EMR that we have encountered. Our ophthalmology customers learn to use Dragon efficiently in their EMR as well as in other applications such as email or Microsoft Word.
What if our practice doesn’t have an EMR yet?
Ophthalmologists can begin to generate medical records using Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 in a word processor like Microsoft Word. We’ve been helping doctors make concise, 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.
Can I use Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 to dictate emails or administrative type work other than my ophthalmology medical records?
Yes. We can add a general vocabulary to your Dragon user profile at no charge. The general vocabulary comes with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2.
