Austin, TX, November 15, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Genesis Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce it now offers Dragon Medical 10.1 – the industry-standard speech recognition and dictation software for physicians. Currently over 100,000 clinicians and counting use Dragon Medical 10 to increase the quality of patient care and to cut operational costs creating EMRs.
Dragon Medical helps to increase the quality of patient care by shortening the time that it takes for a patient record to be completed and distributed throughout the healthcare system. Getting the patient record into a digital form facilitates moving the patient record quickly within the system. Dragon accomplishes this by removing the bottleneck of the manual transcription process. The healthcare provider dictates directly into the EMR system using Dragon Medical 10 software.
Clinicians can eliminate transcription costs by speech-enabling the EMR, freeing up resources to focus more on patients to help practice efficiency, increasing both patient and clinician satisfaction. Healthcare organizations that are using Dragon Medical 10 today are lowering their transcription costs by hundreds of thousands – or even millions of dollars – annually. Dragon Medical products are the only members of the Dragon family to support HIPAA patient information confidentiality requirements.
Dragon Medical also aids in the implementation of EMR systems. Dragon Medical accelerates physician adoption of EMR software by allowing clinicians to navigate an EMR by voice. Dragon also allows doctors to dictate medical decision-making – history of present illness, review of systems, assessment, and plan – directly into EMR systems -- eliminating transcription costs and ensuring more complete clinical documentation.
Medical professionals who implement EMR are eligible to receive as much as $44,000 in incentives per professional, according to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009. Starting in 2011 and continuing through 2016, $17.2 billion will be distributed in incentive payments to eligible healthcare professionals for EMR adoption. Clinicians who act by 2011 can receive up to $44,000 in government-paid incentives for EMR adoption. Clinicians who have not adopted EMR by 2014 will be penalized, and their fee schedules will be reduced each successive year.
Dragon Medical 10 solves the challenge which clinicians face in desiring to document care in their own words without compromising their productivity, while simultaneously helping to eliminate transcription costs. It is now delivering on the promise of speech recognition in making EMR systems easier to use.
