Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical Drives EMR Adoption

September 18, 2007 - Nuance Communications Inc. today announced that Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 9 is reportedly helping to accelerate the adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) across the healthcare industry.

According to the company, Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 9 has proven to be a powerful conduit for physicians by overcoming the EMR's reliance on keyboard data entry, a hurdle for doctors and other care providers who are accustomed to report creation through traditional dictation, transcription or hand writing. Dragon speech recognition technology lets doctors describe the patient encounter in their own words directly into the EMR through free-form dictation, quickly navigate reports using spoken commands and reduce or eliminate the ongoing cost of manual transcription.

Despite clear benefits and strong support from government, payors and employers, EMR adoption among practicing physicians remains slow, encompassing only 20 percent of the estimated 900,000 clinicians in North America (according to Frost & Sullivan). Provided as part of Nuance's Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions product family, Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 9 is speeding EMR adoption by reportedly making EMR systems easier for providers to use thereby driving utilization and improvements in the quality and cost of care provided.
