This year, at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society
conference for doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals,
keynote speaker and Spring CEO Dan Hesse said it's time to take
healthcare "out of the 70's." It seems as though some companies have
already taken this message to heart.
Nuance Communication has announced a new line of their popular Drag products, which are
specifically for medical professionals who want to put their
smartphones to work. Their Dragon Medical Mobile App Suite contains
three new apps and a software development kit. The products are aimed
at making it easier for users to transcribe short notes, as well as
allowing professionals easy access to Electronic Health Records (EHRs).
The first app, Dragon Medical Mobile Search, should be available by April 30th. It allows users to search websites by voice, using the
company's Naturally Speaking recognition technology. For now, it only
includes high profile websites: Google, Medscape, MedLine, and
Epocrates. More should be available in the future.
The second app is Dragon Medical Mobile Dictation, which is designed to take notes
based on dictation, email, and text. The third app is Dragon Medical
Mobile Recorder, which is for organizations that use Nuance's
eScription Service or its Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System. It has
full transcription capabilities and generates high-quality documents.
The SDK will allow developers the option of working with Dragon
The company says it does not know when the second and third apps or the SDK will be released but they did offer previews at
the conference. You can also sign up for free updates about the apps at
