Dragon Dictate Medical for Mac Upgrade
Dragon for Mac Medical v5 requires one of these three Mac OS X versions:
Nuance requires 2.4Ghz or higher
You should have at least 4 GB. If you consistently have 3-4 applications open at once, or use Dragon Medical heavily, 8 GB (or more) is advised.
You’ll need some free disc space, as the install files are quite large. Make sure your computer has at least 8 GB of hard drive storage space open—16 GB if you are installing from a download.
Dragon for Mac Medical v5 has full text control in MacPractice v5 notes fields. This means that you should be able to do everything Dragon can normally do in a text field. In other EHRs, Dragon will still transcribe your speech, but you may have limited functionality for selection, correction, etc.
EHR Support: More complete, accurate documentation improves coding effectiveness and provides richer detail per patient, giving clinicians greater confidents to code at higher levels than with an EHR system alone.
Acoustic Models: Ensures proper clinical documentation which allows physicians to dictate in their own words, generating “once and done” documentation.
Specialized Medical Vocabularies: More than 90 medical specialties, which means that you won’t encounter missing terms or phrases – they all there “out of the box.”
Free-Text Dictation: Supports more detailed History of Present Illness, more flexible Review of Symptoms, and more descriptive Assessment and Plan.
Vocabulary Editor: Set alternative written forms of words or phrases (e.g. orthopedic vs. orthopaedic).
Regional accent support: Supports many regional accents of non-native English speakers (such as Indian, Latino, or Southeast Asian), and other accents (such as Australian or American - Southern).
Faster, More Advanced Correction: Simply speak to correct individual words or phrases through a single, easy to understand window and select an alternate word choice, or spell and train new words.
Transcription of Recorded Speech: Busy clinicians on-the-go can easily transcribe recorded speech audio files into text. No need to outsource transcription!
Secure Patient Information: Supports HIPAA confidentiality requirements.
