  • Decreases costs in medical transcription by increasing the productivity of medical transcriptionists. Healthcare organizations can do more with their in-house resources, reduce or eliminate overflow outsourced work, or decrease the cost of outsourced transcription because it’s faster to edit than to type.
  • Reduces document turnaround time often from days to hours. Faster TAT supports patient care, increases clinician satisfaction, and shortens billing cycles.
  • Improves workflow and quality through streamlined processing of medical records, from dictation/transcription through document distribution and electronic signature.

The Dragon Medical 360 | eScription platform was the first to pioneer the technology of on-demand CAMT and the philosophy that it is faster to edit than to type. Customer satisfaction runs high.

Features

Flexible Dictation Interface
Clinicians have access to a powerful array of keypad controls that allow them to conveniently record, review, and edit dictations by medical record, account or job number.
 

ASP Architecture
Speech recognition servers are deployed in a secure data center, reducing customers’ upfront costs, simplifying maintenance, and enabling the software to draw upon the combined speech data of all customers to continually improve.
 

Sophisticated Speech Models
The Dragon Medical 360 | eScription software rapidly applies multiple speech recognition models to clinicians’ dictations; these models are derived from a database of billions of words of dictation that is still growing.
 

Interprets and Formats Documents
The software’s powerful Interpretive Model interprets and formats clinicians' dictations, often determining what is meant for the report even if it is not exactly what is said.
 

No Explicit Clinician Training
When a new system is installed, clinicians dictate as usual and those early dictations are transcribed traditionally while the Dragon Medical 360 | eScription platform builds speech models behind the scenes.
 

Learns from MT Corrections
The integrated transcription tools provide automatic, ongoing feedback that allows the background speech recognition to learn and improve.
 

Supports Voice Macros and Normals
Clinicians who make use of normals in their dictations can use voice macros to automatically insert their pre-defined content.
 

Secure Internet Access for In-house or Outsourced MTs
Dragon Medical 360 | eScription provides a secure, internet-based transcription client that provides flexible work options for MTs – at home, at a healthcare facility, or at an MTSO facility whether domestic or offshore.
 

Productivity Tools for MTs
In addition to leveraging Microsoft Word shortcuts, Dragon Medical 360 | eScription provides numerous ‘mouse-free’ keystrokes that let MTs quickly move around a document and make necessary changes.
 

Single Administrative Console
Administrators can manage all components of the Dragon Medical 360 | eScription platform through a single console, allowing them to easily set up, manage and track the entire workflow from dictation through distribution. Comprehensive management reports help them monitor results and plan for improvement.
 

Paperless Signing Process
From a list of ‘unsigned’ or deficient records, clinicians can select a document, view the text, listen to the audio, edit the document if necessary, and electronically sign the document, all via a secure online interface.
 

Distribute Documents Where They Are Needed
The Dragon Medical 360 | eScription software provides configurable document distribution via print, fax, or email and can be integrated with your organization’s enterprise-wide systems or EMR.
