The latest version of the award-winning medical dictation software from Nuance, Dragon® Medical Practice Edition, is now being offered by consultant group Lyft. Trusted for years, the new version of the software provides even more reasons for the small medical practice to transition away from paper charts and documentation.

Lyft is a leader in the field of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) consulting. As explained on their website,, they excel in helping clients meet and exceed meaningful use criteria while they implement EMRs. Dragon Medical Practice Edition joins Lyft’s ranks of available smart products.

EMRs complemented with Dragon Medical Practice Edition have a number of benefits for physicians besides allowing them to get out from under their clinical documentation and back to patient care. The speech recognition software drives efficiency and reduces document turnaround time. Practices switching from transcription to voice recognition software can enhance their EMR flow through and save nearly $12,000 in annual transcription costs (per provider)!

Dragon Medical Practice Edition is a smart solution that overcomes some of the obstacles presented by other speech solutions. One obstacle physicians have faced is the ability to view and edit more than one patient note at a time. With unique features offered by this software, such as the “hidden dictation box” and “express web searches” functionality, clinicians can record their dictation while viewing a previous EMR entry, but commit the speech-to-text notation in the new entry. Additionally, when more reference is required beyond a past chart, and outside information altogether, the “express web search function” on Dragon Medical Practice Edition is a great solution. With thiis function there is no need to exit the program to perform the desired reference search. Using the “express web search,” a provider can execute a web-based research query within the program, getting the necessary information without disrupting the train of thought regarding the patient.

Dragon Medical Practice Edition can also aid in the documentation for meaningful use of Electronic Medical Records. Documenting meaningful use is a requirement in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Those that take advantage of products like Dragon Medical Practice Edition to facilitate the process are eligible for federal stimulus payments of up to $44,000 over a four-year period.

Lyft knows that every practice and every clinician is unique. The team has extensive experience tailoring EMR solutions to the specific needs and workflow of each client.

“Our proven EMR system-development and implementation methodology ensures that the final product fully meets the client's requirements while minimizing time to go-live,” says senior partner Chris Youseph.

Lyft’s strong focus on customer satisfaction and their attention to detail on the implementation process helps ensure great results for clients. Adding Dragon Medical Practice Edition to Lyft’s product and service portfolio will make them an even more valuable resource to turn to in the ongoing advancement toward EMR implementation.
