The Most Widely Used Speech Recognition System in Medicine Today
Dragon Medical Practice Edition is up to 99% accurate out-of-the-box, and includes medical vocabularies covering 60 medical specialties and subspecialties. Using Dragon Medical Practice Edition, physicians dictate in real-time into their EMR in their own words – letting them instantly review, sign, and make their notes available for other clinicians.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition accelerates dictation, saving minutes per patient as physicians:
- Navigate quickly throughout their EMR using voice commands
- Use macros to re-use frequently dictated text
- Document “medical decision-making” in their own words into the EMR

"Since using version 10, I’m discovering far fewer errors. The accuracy of version 10 is significantly better.”
Dr. Brian Zimmerman, Emergency Physician, Premier Health
“I just dictated for about 30 minutes in our Epic EMR system (using Dragon Medical) with only three mistakes. Pretty amazing!”
Dr. Jon Wahrenberger, Cardiologist, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
“Wow! Fast! Accurate ! I didn't think it could get any better.”
Dr. Pierce Sanders, Kaiser Permanente
"I have never seen a product (Dragon Medical 10) undergo such superb improvement over time and I have been a Dragon user since v6.”
Dr. Dan Field, Emergency Physician, Kaiser Permanente
“I’ve used Dragon Medical speech recognition for about 8 years. We use Dragon Medical in our busy emergency department with the Allscripts electronic medical record and have eliminated medical transcription.
Dragon speech recognition has greatly increased the value of our medical records by including detailed narratives that point-and-click templates simply can’t capture — accuracy is near perfect, even in a hectic emergency department environment.
Based on my testing and use of Dragon Medical 10, the software seems more intuitive and the recognition has yet again improved from previous versions. Beyond the documentation efficiency gains for our providers, Dragon lets our team tell our patient’s complete story and that raises our quality of care.”
Dr. Loren Leidheiser, Chairman and Director of Emergency Medicine, Mount Carmel St. Ann’s Emergency Department
“We were most interested in the ROI associated with implementing a speech-enabled technology. We were spending close to $1.2 million on transcription costs in our primary care network and with the implementation of Dragon Medical to complement our Allscripts EMR, our projected cost for transcription has been brought to zero.”
Dr. Betty Rabinowitz, Primary Care Internist, University of Rochester Medical Clinic
