FAQs: Dragon Medical Practise Edition

Dragon Medical Practise Edition v4 FAQ's - Olympus RecMic II Awarded 6 Starts for Dragon Medical Speech Recognition Accuracy

Dragon Medical Practise Edition is a complete software package tailored specifically for medical professionals; unlike Dragon Professional Individual which caters for a wider range of professions and usage situations, but does not necessarily accommodate the use of clinical vocabulary and industry specific terminology.

Dragon Medical, however, contains a wide range of medical terms in order to speed up documentation workflow through Speech Recognition accuracy. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about Dragon Medical Practise Edition;


Q: What medical vocabularies are included in Dragon Medical Practise Edition v4? 

A: Dragon Medical Practise Edition contains 90 different medical vocabularies to account for each branch of medicine and subspecialty. If your speciality is not available, you will be able to choose either the “General Medicine” option, or choose the medical vocabulary most alike to your speciality.


Q: What operating systems are supported?

A: You can install Dragon Medical Practise Edition 4 on:

  • Microsoft Windows 7, 8.1, 10 (32 bit and 64 bit).
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 and 2012 R2.


Q: How does Dragon Medical Practise Edition compare with previous versions? 

A: Dragon Medical Practise Edition 4 has been honed for use out-of-the-box without any prior voice training. Meaning, you are ready to go straight from installation and will achieve higher levels of accuracy before making any adaptations or training your user voice profile. DMPE 4 also features enhanced usability and compatibility with a wider range of touchscreen devices and websites.


Q: Will I still need to use a mouse and keyboard?

A: Medical professionals can use Dragon Medical Practise Edition 4 to automate their documentation workflow with voice as the input. Users can save time spent manually typing and clicking with powerful voice commands for almost any task; from navigation to dictation.

Another popular choice for both Medical Professionals and the wider Dragon Speech Recognition user base is the addition of a Desktop Microphone. The Olympus RecMic II range have 6 stars for Dragon Accuracy, also allowing users to configure programmable hotkeys to allow for automation of their entire workflow. The integrated trackball makes for easy and intuitive control over the mouse, and the antimicrobial surface makes for hygienic use in medical (and none medical) environments.

Q: Where can I buy Dragon Medical Practise Edition 4

A: As Nuance Approved Partners, we are able to offer a range of Nuance Dragon Products. We can help you find the perfect package that meets your individual requirements; from Medical to Legal to professional and home use, visit Dictaphones.co.uk or get in touch on 0121 456 7800 to speak with one of our Speech Recognition Specialists in finding the perfect edition of Dragon for you.


Q: Are there any alternatives?

A: Dragon Medical Practise Edition 4 is perfect for larger medical practises and those who need to have a Speech Recognition product that seamlessly integrates into an existing EPR. In this case; DMPE 4 is the only clear choice and the best piece of software in the industry to date.

However, for individual workflows and smaller medical practises (who don’t require their Speech Recognition package to integrate with an existing EPHRP), the cost-effective solution is to combine Dragon Professional Individual v15 with the Medincle+ Plugin for Medical Speech Recognition. In this way users have access to a full British Medical Vocabulary to be used in combination with Dragon for maximum accuracy (and therefore efficiency) in their dictation workflow.
