Dragon ® Medical Practice Edition 2


Dragon Medical Practice Edition helps clinicians – including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, therapists, and other care providers – efficiently navigate and dictate medical decision-making and treatment plans directly into a patient’s electronic record. Designed for small practices with 24 physicians or less, Dragon Medical Practice Edition helps practices:

  • Improve documentation
  • Eliminate transcription costs
  • Increase physician satisfaction
  • Enhance efficiency
  • Increase practice profitability
  • Improve care efficiency. Dragon Medical Practice Edition offers virtually instant response time, saving clinicians valuable minutes in their day – no more waiting for transcribed reports or needing to type into their EHRs.
  • Reduce transcription and the cost of documentation. Using speech recognition technology, clinicians dictate, edit and sign medical records at the point of care, eliminating as much as $12,000 in annual transcription costs.
  • Spend more time with patients. Increased accuracy means fewer errors to correct, which lets clinicians spend more time with patients, improving both quality of care and patient satisfaction. Improve documentation. Documentation with Dragon Medical speech recognition technology – as opposed to notes built by point-and-click EHR templates alone – results in higher rates of reimbursement.
  • Secure patient information. Dragon Medical Practice Edition supports HIPAA patient confidentiality guidelines.
  • Improve physician satisfaction. With Dragon Medical Practice Edition, physicians look forward to practicing medicine – and getting home in time for dinner.
  • Increase reimbursement. A major study by a physician practice in the Northeast determined that using Dragon Medical with an EHR increases per-physician reimbursement by $10,000 per year per physician.


  • Improves the speed and accuracy of documentation
  • Accelerates physician EHR adoption
  • Dramatically reduces transcription costs
  • Allows physicians to spend more time with patients
  • Captures the patient story in the clinician’s own words
  • Supports higher level of reimbursement, lower number of denials
  • Improves clinician satisfaction
  • Supports HIPAA guidelines to protect patient confidentiality
  • More accurate than ever In clinical settings, Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 is over 20% more accurate than the previous version and — and over 60% more accurate than Dragon Professional 12 when used in clinical settings
  • Recognition speed – Dragon Medical Practice Edition improves recognition response time significantly.
  • EHR support – Navigate and dictate inside EHR software: History of Present Illness, Review of Systems, and Assessment and Plan.
  • Medical vocabularies – Covers nearly 90 specialties and subspecialties.
  • Regional accent support – Accented speakers get higher “out-of-the-box” recognition with advanced adaptation techniques and accent-specific acoustic models.
  • Hidden mode – Dictate anywhere in the EHR, eliminating navigation between EHR screens and the notes window.
  • Dragon Medical Template Library – Includes library of macros for standard notes and “medical normals” by body system.
  • Smart configuration – Automatically detects hardware resources. Its state-of-the-art technology takes advantage of advances in hardware and runs in multiple threads automatically when multi-core hardware is detected for better recognition performance.
  • Recognition analytics – Automatically detects poor audio input and alerts the user, offering advice to remedy the situation and improve accuracy.

Dragon Naturally Speaking Legal Solutions


Enjoy Unparalleled Speech Recognition Accuracy and Performance. Dragon Legal offers unprecedented speed and accuracy. You can create documents and emails three times faster than typing with up to 99% accuracy. And because Dragon Legal tunes itself to what you say and how you say it, it becomes even more accurate over time.

Dictate Directly Into Your PC or Use a Digital Handheld Recorder. Depending on how and where you work, you can choose your preferred dictation approach. Dictate directly into your PC or use a digital voice recorder. Dragon will automatically transcribe the audio files of your voice when you connect to your PC. Or Dragon will make the transcription files available to support staff for third-party correction and will automatically update your user profile based on those corrections.

Streamline Third-Party Correction. Both the audio and the transcribed text of a digital voice recording can be sent to a transcriptionist for review. An Auto-Transcribe Folder can manage text and synchronized audio flow for third-party review, which streamlines the process of correcting another person’s dictation.

Automate Repetitive Document Creation Tasks. Dragon Legal lets you (or someone on your IT staff) create custom voice commands to instantly build and format templates for contracts or other legal documents, or trigger the execution of frequent or multi-step computer tasks. Custom commands can be used to quickly enter frequently used boilerplate text and images (including formatted paragraphs, bullet points, and graphics like scanned signatures), or to automate a sequence of tasks such as saving a document under a client name, printing it, and attaching it to an email.

Dragon Voice Shortcuts Let You Perform Tasks Faster Than Ever. With Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Email and Calendar, you can say, “send email to Jon Smith and Raphael Sanchez,” and Dragon Legal will activate your email program, create a new email, and add the appropriate email addresses. Or to schedule a meeting, you can simply say, “Schedule meeting with Jon Smith and Raphael Sanchez,” and Dragon jumpstarts the process by opening a new calendar entry in Outlook and adding the selected contact(s).

Manage Large User Networks. Dragon Legal offers administrative tools to manage large user populations. Organizations with large deployments can centrally manage voice profiles, custom vocabularies, and multiple installations. Robust security and configuration options enable administrators to control Dragon usage across the enterprise.
