Saving time and money with computerized dictation

Following from the last post about Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition software (they don't pay me, btw), Dr Jonathan Krant's experience is featured in last month's issue of Internal Medicine News.

Since five years ago, with an investment of $4000 for the Dragon Systems Medical Suite software and an appropriately configured PC (I'm guesssing that it has at least 2 GB of RAM), he has been impressed with an accuracy of over 99.5%, and a savings of over $3000/month compared with the costs of off-site transcription. It also has streamlined his workflow to the point that he can get notes about referred patients to their primary care physicians withing 10 minutes of seeing a patient.
