Yes, you can use Dragon Medical dictation software with Elation. Our physicians have found that the Dragon Medical Edition is much more accurate than the standard Dragon dictation software.
To use Dragon Medical dictation software with Elation, you must first have the Dragon Dictation software installed on the computer you plan to dictate on. Please follow the instructions that are included with the Dragon Dictation software.
Once Dragon has been installed on your computer, log into Elation and open a patient's chart. Put your mouse cursor into any text field and start dictation using Dragon. That's it. Dragon Medical Software will work the same as if you were dictating in a note inside a Microsoft Word document.
When documenting a visit note, we recommend that you use either the "Simple Note" or the "SOAP Note" when dictating, as the formatting is more conducive for full length sentences. However, you can use any visit note format that you desire while using Dragon Medical to dictate.
Note: Because ElationEMR is a web-based EMR system, the shortcut commands, called "MyCommands" by Dragon, will not work. All other features of the Dragon Medical software will be compatible with ElationEMR.
