"At Abernethy, we have upgraded from the desktop version (Dragon Medical Practice Edition) to the hosted DMO (Dragon Medical One) as it is much faster, more accurate, and is fast on old computers as long as they have an internet connection. It is Cloud-based so users can use their profile from any computer after installing DMO. Each license allows multiple installations for the user (surgery computers, remote laptops, personal computers) without having to make a call to GP IT who manages the devices. For the best speech accuracy, DMO needs a good USB mic."

Your questions, answered

Your current DMPE software isn’t going to just stop working, but it certainly won’t get any new features or makeovers. Once the maintenance stops (Sept 2023), DMPE won’t get any critical updates to patch up security issues which out of date software is vulnerable to. DMO will ensure your software is kept up to date every time you log in.

Dragon Medical One (DMO) is the new flagship cloud-based  solution which offers significant benefits over locally installed speech recognition, including an enhanced user experience through:

Simple installation
Install it yourself via a web browser without the need for IT assistance or admin rights.

Always up to date
Software updates automatically just like Microsoft Office.

Dynamic dictionary
Dictionaries are regularly updated with new medical terminology and new drug names are added automatically.

Fast speedy performance
Voice processing takes place in the cloud ensuring no overhead on local NHS PC’s.

Use it anywhere
At work, on the go, even carry it on a USB drive to use in 3rd party locations you visit. Better still Clinician’s working from home can use PowerMic Mobile Smartphone App to dictate directly into their Clinical System when using remote access tools.

Roaming profiles
Voice profiles, custom words, phrases, commands etc… follow you everywhere.

Protected profiles
Voice profiles are protected from corruption. If resets are ever required this does not affect custom words, phrases and/or commands.

No hardware required
No extra hardware required with the Dragon PowerMic Mobile App, turn your smartphone into a microphone wherever you are working.

Advanced reporting
Full usage reporting across the organisation including utilisation data, adoption trends, ROI reporting such as time saved per GP.

Managed service
Words, phrases, commands can all be added by us and also allocated to other users by department or facility.
