No time for dictation breaks? This mobile recorder lets doctors dictate reports on the go to an iPhone and wirelessly upload reports to Nuance's speech recognition transcription platform. The mobile recorder works with Nuance's eScription speech recognition engine, which transcribes the material and creates draft reports that can be incorporated into electronic health records. In the past, poor audio quality kept physicians from using mobile phones for dictation. The Dragon recorder overcomes this problem, Nuance says, providing more reliable dictation capture. The recorder uses Wi-Fi and 3G networks to upload doctors' dictations for processing. The Dragon Medical Mobile Recorder app can be downloaded for free at iTunes. A subscription to Nuance's eScription platform is also required; pricing varies depending on usage.
