Every medical practice is heavily burdened with the increasing amount of paperwork required for each clinician and physician to complete. Physicians spend more than 20 hours per week executing administrative tasks such as patient documentation, and up to 50% of their day spent inside their EHR, with that number being a bit conservative post-pandemic crisis.
We know that accurate and timely documentation of a patient’s visit is critical to communicate effectively with other healthcare professionals and ensure a smooth coordination of care. A rich and robust patient note within your chosen EHR is essential for timely insurance reimbursement, which keeps your practice running productively.
Finding ways to reduce the amount of time spent on paperwork is key, as many physicians are still using traditional typing. However, with the implementation of a medical speech recognition solution placed in the right place in your clinical workflow, you can significantly increase your practice productivity - up to 50%.
Simply put - we speak up to 3x as fast as we type, so the power of your own natural voice while using a speech recognition solution, like cloud-based Dragon Medical One, is shown to save you up to 2 hours a day in documentation tasks. 2 hours a day x 5 days a week, equals a time savings of at least 10 hours, reducing that aforementioned 20 hours a week in administrative tasks - leaving you more time to spend quality face-time with your patients. Outside of the obvious time-savings, Dragon Medical One is a HIPAA-compliant solution used by hundreds of thousands of physicians across the country, to create a thorough and accurate document inside the EHR that works to mitigate risk in your practice.
Secure patient information is critical, so using any solution requires a high-level of security. Practices that are still using the legacy version of Dragon Medical Practice Edition (DMPE) are putting themselves AND their practice at risk. The manufacturer's support of DMPE ended on March 31st, so they will no longer work to prevent or resolve any security issues that may arise for their legacy boxed product. In addition, they will not be held responsible for any security incidents, breaches, or other security failures for any and all customers opting to continue to use DMPE without support.
