Posted by Julie - on Sat, Apr 07, 2012

Which comes first?  The Chicken or the Egg?


You have chosen an EMR and you see the value that Dragon Medical Software will have for entering patient notes into the system.  Do you train on the EMR first or learn Dragon Speech Recognition Software first?  Age old question, the chicken or the egg?  Well, one thing is for sure, if you train on both at the same time, you could end up with scrambled eggs and be like chickens running around with their heads cut off!

Are You Left Holding Extra Nuts & Bolts With Dragon?

Posted by Julie L. on Sun, Jan 08, 2012

Trying to use Dragon Software without investing in one-on-one training is like putting a grill together without the instructions, you will feel like you have extra nuts and bolts, not knowing where they go and how to use them!  Many customers have tried to master using Dragon on their own, what they find is they can use the basics, maybe 5% of the capabilities.  Leaving them very limited and unproductive.
