User Testimonials:

“Click, and it just works. Those who know me appreciate I am generally not one to praise technology, nor learn to use it easily.”

-Joseph Cofrancesco, Division of General Internal Medicine

“It is such a weird feeling to leave clinic with encounters closed.”

-James Hamilton, Division of Gastroenterology

“The new Dragon is a GAME CHANGER! It recognizes almost all medical terms and medications that I use. I use the power mic from my phone, and I'm able to easily sync between different work stations. This has dramatically changed my workflow and allows me to increase the quality of my documentation by adding more details in half the time.”

-Nestoras Mathioudakis, Division of Endocrinology

 “Just finished my morning clinic and all of my notes were dictated and closed by 1 p.m. This made me JOYFUL!”

-Kim Peairs, Division of General Internal Medicine
