A speech recognition quality microphone is essential for good accuracy. With this headset you can control SayIt or Narrate microphone on/off with keyboard shortcuts or voice commands.
SayIt requires pressing and holding the F2 key while speaking.
"The beauty of SayIt is that it is tied to me, not the EMR or location. Because it is a cloud-based solution, I can access it along with my profile wherever I’m working. The product is easy to use and provides very fast, accurate speech-to-text conversion. Unlike other speech-recognition solutions, SayIt uses separate hotkeys for dictation and shortcuts, which means I can use Epic smart phrases for greater productivity."
"Using Fusion Narrate has been amazing, and that is really an understatement. I am now usually able to chart “as I go” and can leave work with little or no charting to do at home. The freedom from the hours I spent charting in the evening has not only given me back precious time with my family but has allowed me to see a higher volume of patients because I am not worried about the extra charting requirements from increasing my volume."
"Clinic by clinic we’re stopping the use of paper outcomes and making notes straight into EMR. The new worklist is a great way to keep track of pooled clinics and who’s been seen by whom. Dragon Medical’s speech recognition is quick and accurate, but you do have to check for minor errors! In Gastro we are planning to use auto text templates for consistency across our multidisciplinary clinics. There are real benefits for the patient. Their medical history, scans and docs are in one place and I can print the patient’s letter while I am with them. "
