Jan. 30, 2011 - PRLog -- Mumbai, Maharashtra, January 31, 2011 – ICONS, Indian National Distributor of Nuance Communications, Inc., starts shipping Dragon® Medical 11 software, the fastest, most accurate, real-time medical speech recognition software released to date. The new

Dragon Medical 11 software recognizes dictation nearly twice as fast as its previous release and yields an accuracy improvement of more than 15 percent over the previous release. Dragon Medical 11 offers new medical vocabularies, improved integration with electronic medical record (EMR) systems, enhanced regional accent support, and customizable commands, like Voice Shortcuts and DragonTemplates.

Dragon Medical 11 is a part of the world’s best-selling speech recognition software family, Dragon NaturallySpeaking®, and is one of many offerings in Nuance’s healthcare portfolio of proven, speech-enabled clinical documentation and communication solutions.

Globally, Dragon Medical is used by more than 70,000 caregivers today in hospitals and physician practices across private, public and government settings. Dragon Medical 11 lets physicians create medical documents and emails, search the Web, control their PC and EMR entirely by voice, saving time and boosting productivity as compared to typing and mouse navigation alone. By enabling clinicians to rapidly and completely document patient encounters via their voice, Dragon Medical reduces transcription costs, improves clinician productivity, enhances patient care and increases insurer reimbursement.

Dragon Medical 11 introduces new commands that act on multiple mouse clicks and keystrokes. With the new commands, it is faster and easier to open applications, open or switch to a particular window, send emails, or search the web – all by voice.

Improved Accuracy: Dragon Medical 11 comes with increased audio resolution and an updated speech engine which is more accurate by up to 15% compared to Dragon Medical 10. These improvements particularly benefit non-native speakers who will get higher “out-of-the-box” recognition.

With these specialized vocabularies, Dragon Medical has proven to be up to 48 percent more accurate than non-medical speech recognition software in clinical settings.

Accent Recognition Knows What You’re Saying, No Matter Where You’re From
As 30 percent of U.S. physicians are born foreign, Dragon Medical 11 now calibrates to regional accents through an initial voice screening process. The software adapts to Indian accents.

Nearly Twice as Fast as Previous Versions: With Dragon Medical 11, clinicians will see their dictated text appear almost instantaneously, noticing a dramatic reduction in the time it takes for the software to recognize what is being dictated, significantly improving user experience.

Quotes from Industry Leaders
“Dragon Medical is a fantastic tool to automate the medical reporting, be it radiology, cardiology reports or the Patient Discharge summary. In fact a few of our consultants who were earlier dictating the reports to the Medical transcriptionist or were writing the reports themselves are very happy to use Dragon Medical as it has cut down the turnaround time drastically,” reports Balihar Singh Virk, Manager - IS, Satguru Partap Singh Apollo Hospitals, Ludhiana.

Dr.Sanjay Jain, Head of Radiology – Prince Aly Khan Hospital, Byculla, Mumbai user of Dragon remembers "Writing down radiology reports has been a pain-staking exercise with its inception right from residency days. All other speciality residents have also been part of this jamboree with hours drained down on penning incorrigible notes and discharge cards. Creativity demanded something more and gave birth to the Dragon Software - you think and speak and there you are - on your desktop. Dragon has helped me streamline Radiology Reporting with a very high degree of accuracy consistently independently. All Specialities in Medicine can benefit enormously by using Dragon-The Concorde in Medicine”

Dr.Rakesh Jamkhandikar, Consulting Radiologist, Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital, Pune “The Dragon voice recognition software has really made radiology reporting much more convenient and faster. With Dragon, the time taken for a typed report has nearly halved. Above this, we dont have to depend on the typist anymore”.
