In recent years, more and more providers are working both in the clinic and in remote locations, especially in 2020 with the spread of COVID-19. It provides increased convenience and safety for patients to see physicians through telemedicine platforms. But it also comes with an increased need for physicians to have access to cloud-based solutions that can streamline the process to input important information into electronic health records (EHRs).
This year, 1st Dragon/CME is preparing to release Dragon Medical One 2020.2, an update to its industry-leading speech recognition software to make patient chart documentation even easier for medical providers. Here are a few ways this software can improve your medical documentation process.
Compatibility Across Devices
You can use Dragon Medical One on tablets, desktop computers, or laptops, and document complete patient care anytime, from virtually anywhere. Dragon Medical One is designed for speed, accuracy, and flexibility. Use the wired PowerMic at your desktop workstation or the PowerMic Mobile application on your smartphone and turn any workstation into a dictation station.
Accurate and Easy to Use
One of the most important aspects of patient narratives is accuracy. Getting the right information into the patient chart is essential not only to ensure proper care but also to streamline the process of submitting medical billing claims to payers after a patient encounter. Coders look for specific information in a patient’s chart to bill for certain services. Missing or inaccurate information can delay the billing process, or could even result in serious fines or other penalties if coders incorrectly bill for something you did not provide because of inaccurate or incomplete documentation. With Dragon Medical One and PowerMic Mobile, you can dictate accurate clinical information directly in the patient’s chart just by speaking. You won’t need to worry about typing errors, delays if you aren’t proficient with a keyboard, or extra time to have a staff member type information into the patient’s chart.
Cloud-Based Solution that Goes Where You Need It
A lot of things happen “in the cloud” these days and in healthcare, cloud-based software can efficiently store and transfer information. With Dragon Medical One, you can use any device that has an internet connection to securely transmit information to the patient’s EHR, even while working remotely. All the data is encrypted and protected with the highest level of HIPAA-compliant security measures to keep medical records safe.
When you use Dragon Medical One with AdvancedMD you can document patient narratives from an unlimited number of locations and machines, making it easier than ever to complete your patient charts. Find out more about the new release and how it can help your practice by contacting us today.
