Yes, that's right! ZTEC is now offering the best in Ambulatory transcription from the innovators at Nuance, the folks who make Dragon Medical. Over the last several years, we've listened to our physicians who have told us they really need a "blended approach" to their clinical documentation.
Dragon Medical is perfect for direct dictation into an EMR or Word but sometimes, when away from the office or just behind in the schedule, it's easier and more time effective to dictate to a digital device, such as an iPhone, Droid or recorder, and have that dictation transcribed by a human.
ZTEC is proud to announce the addition of Nuance Ambulatory Transcription Services to our already strong array of voice productivity products. Just give us a call at 877-493-7497 and maybe you'll start enjoying:

"I've never had an endeavor that went as seamlessly, smoothly and perfectly as the transition to Nuance. There isn't a person here who doesn't like it. It's entirely hands-off. It was that way from day one. Our physicians picked up their personal phones and started dictating."
- Charlene Kellerman, Practice Administrator
CLIENT: ORTHOPAEDIC & SPORTS MEDICINE OF ERIE
The practice administrator met with Nuance's general manager and one of its engineers. The team assured Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine of Erie that they would do whatever was necessary to put a solution in place quickly and customize their services to the practice's needs. The practice administrator liked Nuance's strong transcription background and understanding of workflow. She also appreciated that Nuance had experience with Orthopad and the ability to automatically load information into patients' charts on their new electronic medical records system.
MAKING THE CHANGE
WORKING WITH NUANCE
In addition, the solution gives the practice a much better tracking system for missed or incomplete dictation. Reports are now available online, and the Nuance team tracks and alerts the practice to any discrepancies or inconsistencies. The practice has regained staff time as there is no need to file paper charts or track dictation. The Edmonton Southside Primary Care Network (PCN) is a group of more than 90 family physicians and 39 staff. PCN works with Alberta Health Services and other health care professionals to improve, coordinate, and deliver primary health services for their patients in the family practice environment.
"From a business standpoint, this change has allowed us to increase provider staff without increasing employee staff. The Nuance team continues to come to us with ideas for improving our practice and decreasing our costs. I have do recommend the team at Nuance."
- Charlene Kellerman, Practice Administrator

All editions of Dragon NaturallySpeaking have Auto Formatting options controlling how Dragon writes things like phone numbers, dates, dollar amounts and the like. Auto Formatting options are accessed via the Tools menu on the DragonBar.
In Dragon Medical Practice Edition (DMPE), both versions 1 and 2, the Auto Formatting dialog box is greatly expanded allowing medical professionals even more flexibility. In addition to all the "General" Auto Formatting rules found in NaturallySpeaking Premium, Professional and Legal, DMPE allows clinicians a wide variety of capitalization, abbreviation expansion and medical term formatting.
For example, on the Capitalization tab of Auto Formatting, drug names can be:
Standard formatting (the default setting) will write generic drugs in lower case and non-generic drugs will be initial capped. If the clinician prefers ALL drugs be either initial capped or uppercase, they can choose that option from the drug name capitalization drop list.
In another example, on the Numbers, Units and Dates tab, "Use Roman numerals for diabetes types" can be selected. With this checkbox checked (it is not by default) DMPE will write Roman numerals instead of Arabic numerals for diabetes types, i.e. "type II diabetes" instead of "type 2 diabetes."
