At MedDATA, our mission is to defragment medical records and reduce the chaos of patient care.
A HYBRID MODEL of dictating directly into an existing Electronic Health Record system gives providers more time to be doctors and less time doing data entry.
All major EHR's have a dictation option
upon provider request.
Electronic Health Records were Revolutionary, but …
Technology designed to simplify labor has actually increased it. The efficiencies promised by current EHR have not shown themselves.
A simple summary dictated by the provider, along with the data points entered in the EHR can bring the most pertinent aspects of care to the forefront.
A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found for each patient visit, physicians spend an average of 16 minutes and 14 seconds using electronic health records (EHRs). Researchers from the Cerner Corporation examined about 100 million patient visits to 155,000 U.S. doctors." – ashpublications.org
Stanford Medicine research of more than 500 primary care doctors found:
71% felt electronic records contribute to physician burnout
49% felt electronic charts detracted from their medical effectiveness
59% believed electronic records need a complete overhall
Dragon Dictation was Revolutionary, but …
It needs close monitoring.
Does speech recognition software such as Dragon actually save doctors time and money? No
Dictation is faster, much faster:
For a 30-line summary of visit:
• 4 minutes for skilled Dragon user
• 1.5 minutes to dictate
At 25 patients a day
DICTATION SAVES MORE THAN AN HOUR A DAY OVER USING DRAGON

the best solution is always to simplify
Nurse captures meaningful use data points
Dictate a summary for billing and for continuity of care
Drop your charges and you're done
Choose to dictate during the visit
• During patient visit – billable time
• Gives the patient a feeling of being heard
• Completed by the time you leave the exam room
“Dictating in the presence of the patient gives patients the chance to understand what your thinking is, to validate it or correct it if need be, time and money saver, too. Can get feedback from the patient, validation from them, able to ask the patient other questions or clarification that I think of during the dictation. Patients understand the scope of the problems we covered and what we did. I gets lots of positive feedback from the patients that they feel heard. After dictation, I may have to do something trivial such as drop the charges but for all practical purposes, I’m done with the encounter after dictation.” – Quoted from 10 Best Medical Dictation Apps (notta.ai)
