Re: Voice-activated transcription systems

From:Rod Slyter <>

We here at the Medical College of Virginia just intergrated "voice recognition"
into our transcription services. We are using Dragon, the medical suite version.
Our LIS system is Cerner millinium. Dragon for the most part can be used
directly into cerner since it is windows based. We actually dictate the gross
and microscopic descriptions directly into the cerner transcription module.
Certain dragon commands do not work because they are not "global" but most do.
We have also written user specific commands for using the already exsistant
"templates" that are in our LIS system. I works very nice. User Friendly if one
is computer literate. Any more qiestions you can email me directly
