Dragon Medical Practice Edition


Dragon Medical Practice Edition to be discontinued on March 31, 2021

Dear Valued Dragon Medical Practice Edition customer,

As a trusted vendor, Nuance Communications, Inc. ("Nuance") uses the best technology to address our customers' needs and continuously evolve to improve our solutions.

As part of this evolution to improve performance and security and provide better user experiences, we are shifting to Dragon Medical One, Nuance's cloud-based speech recognition solution. Dragon Medical One offers significant benefits over locally installed speech recognition, including an enhanced user experience when capturing the patient story. Seamlessly move between different devices with all your personalization readily available, and with PowerMic Mobile, use your smartphone as a convenient, wireless mic.

As a result of the shift to Dragon Medical One, we are discontinuing Dragon Medical Practice Edition (DMPE) in North America:

  • Dragon Medical Practice Edition will no longer be available for purchase after March 31, 2021.
  • Dragon Medical Practice Edition's maintenance and support contracts will not be available for purchase or renewal after March 31, 2021.
  • Support for Dragon Medical Practice Edition will end on March 31, 2022.
  • Dragon Medical Practice Edition will not be tested or supported on the upcoming Windows 11 release from Microsoft.

The end of maintenance and support means that Nuance will not prevent or resolve any security issues that may arise for DMPE. If you choose to continue to use DMPE without support, you do so at your own risk; Nuance will not be responsible for any security incidents, breaches, or other security failures.

The retirement of Dragon Medical Practice Edition presents an opportunity to heighten your performance. Dragon Medical One users can access their single voice profile through the cloud for anytime, anywhere dictation. Automatic updates ensure that customers always have the most up-to-date speech recognition engine and comprehensive product available, with no physician downtime.
