Medical Voice Recognition Software
We know that physicians have specific needs for accurate and efficient transcription. The voice-recognition software can help you create medical reports, correspondence and other medical documentation at a fraction of the time and cost that you might be spending now. We have created some very specific medical packages and solutions with the medical professional in mind based on our own experience and the feedback we receive from physicians just like you. We understand that past experience with voice-recognition software may not have exhibited the kind of accuracy that you were hoping for, but we are glad to report that with Paperless Office & Dragon NaturallySpeaking you can now expect speeds of 160 words per minute and accuracy in the 98%-99% percentile range.
The Physician's Paperless Office® is an innovative electronic medical records system that is fully voice enabled. The system is designed to help physician practices improve quality of care, reduce risk, cut costs, and increase revenues. Appropriate for any sized medical practice—from a small, solo practice to a large, multi-provider/multi-location group—this feature-rich system allows you to create and maintain complete medical records faster and more efficiently than ever before with the use of voice recognition technology.
Speech enabled electronic medical records system offer numerous benefits such as documentation automation, secure storage, error reduction and effective exchange of patient data such as: Initial Evaluations, Daily Notes, Lab results, Patient reports, SOAP Notes, Discharge Notes, Referral Notes, Visit Summaries, Progress Notes and much more.
But some doctors are avoiding that hurdle by speaking commands as well as patient notes into their e-health record systems. Voice recognition functionality is not only helping to drive utilization of e-health record systems among doctors, it's also helping to dramatically reduce the cost of medical transcription services.
The EMR software has drop-down templates from which physicians can enter information about patients, such as during exams and in providing data about medical history. However, the voice-recognition software provides the e-records an added boost by allowing doctors to add details that would otherwise be excluded from the data, or has to be typed in.
It's no question that voice recognition is helping to drive physician adoption of EMRs. It's not the reason why EMR is getting adopted, but its one more feature that adds ease of use. In addition the savings are enormous when voice recognition functionality eliminates the need for transcription services.
