Dragon Medical Mobile Solutions
Today there is accelerating demand from clinicians for mobile solutions that let them easily document, retrieve and communicate patient information at the point-of-care. Demand for these solutions is fueled by industry and federal government mandates to expediently migrate medical information into Electronic Health Records (EHRs). In fact, research* shows that by 2011 about 81% of U.S. physicians will be using smartphones.
To help clinicians take full advantage of advances in mobile computing, Nuance Healthcare is developing four mobile solutions specifically for clinicians to improve productivity and satisfaction with documentation workflow, information access and communication via the smartphone.
Nuance Healthcare’s four Dragon® Medical Mobile Solutions for Smartphones build on Dragon Dictation and Dragon Search applications for the iPhone, extending the proven power of mobile, voice-enabled documentation and search to the healthcare industry. These advanced point-of-care solutions deliver real time speech recognition and dictation capabilities to the smartphone so physicians, nurses and other caregivers can efficiently access clinical information and document patient encounters using their mobile devices.
Availability of these four solutions is expected throughout this year, the first of which was released in August of 2010.
