Dragon Medical One: 5 Top Tips for Optimizing Your Workflow

We now have a new how-to video series that shows how simple and quick it can be to get started and utilize all the capabilities with Dragon Medical One: short video reels that explore the clinical documentation companion’s key features and functionality and how you can make the most of them. Watch a sneak peek of the first five videos in the series to see what you can learn about Dragon Medical One.

Every clinician works a little differently—so there’s no one-size-fits-all tool for increasing productivity. What you need is a solution you can tailor to your needs, preferences, and systems—including your electronic health record (EHR).
Our four-time Best in KLAS-winning documentation companion, Dragon Medical One, offers a deep integration, workflow automation, and and powerful speech recognition in a configurable, adaptable package.

When you take full advantage of these features, working with Dragon Medical One is incredibly quick and easy, as our new series of quickfire videos shows. Each one includes an overview of a key competency and best practices for maximizing your experience.

Here’s what you’ll learn in the first five:

Using basic commands to navigate within your note

Speech recognition can save you up to two hours per day documenting —especially when you use your voice to navigate as well as dictate. Our series kicks off by explaining five common commands that help you do everything from adding new information to navigating free text fields in your note.

Adding words to Dragon’s dictionary

Customization is the key to creating a documentation workflow that’s practical, streamlined, and tailored to you. The dictionary included with Dragon Medical One has a wide range of medical terminology, from simple expressions to highly specialized terms. You can easily add your own terms to the dictionary as well. In the second video of our series, we walk you through the process of adding words to Dragon Medical One, whether you want to add phrases relevant to your specialty or your own preferred wording.

Adding acronyms to your custom vocabulary

How do you balance speed and detail in your documentation? When you’re working quickly, long phrases such as medication names and complex diagnoses can slow your documentation time. Over time, every clinician forms their own shorthand or abbreviations to simplify their workflow—and with Dragon Medical One, you can add acronyms to your vocabulary so when you dictate them. This reel shows how easy it is to dictate an acronym but have it spelled out in your note.

Using the “select” command

After dictating a clinical note with Dragon Medical One, you won’t want to go back to your keyboard and mouse to make changes. A more useful voice substitute is provided by the “select” command. This video demonstrates how it pairs with phrases like “delete that” to help you fine-tune your documentation and ensure it’s clear and accurate.

Using Dragon to navigate your EHR’s SmartFields

When you’re spending so much time working directly in the EHR, a documentation companion like Dragon Medical One needs to support your workflow. In order to facilitate seamless structured documentation, this reel demonstrates how to map a voice command to the hotkeys of your particular EHR. This will allow you to swiftly traverse between the note’s variable fields.
These are just the first few reels in our series—so far, we’ve only scratched the surface of the features you can use to optimize your workflow. Dragon Medical One was designed with clinical experts in mind, and you have countless options to customize it to be the ideal documentation partner for both solo and team practitioners.
