I just read an article on the benefits of hiring scribes to work with doctors in order to get their patient notes in an EMR - I was knocked off my chair. Of course, it was written by a CEO of a recruitment company, so I shouldn't be surprised someone trying to get people hired would try to convince providers they need someone to do their job for them.

Mindware Connections is pleased to announce Version 2, the latest release of Dragon Medical Practice Edition!
Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 improved recognition speed increases response time significantly.
In my experience as a Dragon Software trainer, I saw firsthand the results of EMR implementations. Sometimes it was done well, all too often it lacked several key components: Communication, Explanation of Expectations, Appropriate Tools, not to mention Effective Training. Overall, the underlying element I almost consistently observed was minimal or no Change Management!!
Dragon Medical Practice Edition is an excellent tool in helping providers to meet Meaningful Use requirements. The truth is, it helps make entering patient notes less time consuming. CMS.gov lists the criteria for meeting requirements, how you choose to meet them is up to you.
