Pairing a medical practice with a speech recognition system is not a ‘one size fits all’ job. Every practice is different, and as the team at Computers Made Effective, Inc., (CME) points out, the technical and service approach for each practice must mirror that.

Since 1997, Computers Made Effective, Inc. has supported physicians and their practices nationwide with customized installation, service and training of the most innovative speech recognition systems available, including Dragon Medical Practice Edition, manufactured by Nuance.

“The Dragon Medical Dictation software has evolved to extraordinary levels and we are proud to be able to help physicians use it and maximize the benefits to meet their needs,” says Polly Tillinghast, CEO of Computers Made Effective, Inc., an Elite Dragon Medical Partner. “Our expertise is assessing what works best for each physician and his/her practice, even among groups of physicians, and customizing the system to complement how they practice medicine in a way that is comfortable for them.”

Tillinghast adds that the latest version of Dragon Medical Practice Edition delivers faster and more accurate dictation than ever before. Physicians can easily see a 50 percent increase in productivity and the system delivers an overall accuracy of 99 percent. This improved efficiency allows physicians more time with patients and saves them money by eliminating transcription costs. Dragon Medical Practice Edition has expanded its vocabularies and now covers nearly 80 medical specialties and subspecialties.

Physicians interested in integrating with their EMR should also note that Dragon Medical Practice Edition is compatible with practically any EMR system currently available and Computers Made Effective has experience with most of them. However, Tillinghast points out that each system is slightly different. Her team is adept at manipulating the software and writing voice commands that are tailored to a particular medical practices’ voice recognition needs.

To get a medical practice started on the process of integrating Dragon Medical Practice Edition into their office, CME first encourages physicians to observe a demonstration of the software. Then CME coordinates with the office IT administrator to assess the workflow pattern of that office and determine what their transcriptions needs are. Computers Made Effective ‘discovery’ demonstrations are typically presented online; physicians are provided a website to connect them to the demonstration.

Computers Made Effective offers free shipping and free technical support on all Dragon Medical Practice Edition orders. They offer many other Dragon Speak products in their inventory, as well as microphones from Phillips and Olympus, including SpeechMike and PowerMic.
