Studies show that over 50% of healthcare providers experience burnout at some point in their careers. Some doctors even experience burnout several times throughout their careers. It is no surprise with all the non-clinical tasks physicians must complete each day. Important tasks that keep workflows flowing and records updated. This, of course, is in addition to seeing patients for 12 hours or more each day.

Many healthcare providers are seeking out ways to take some of the burdens off themselves to avoid physician burnout. Some are involving the administration staff and asking them to take on more non-clinical duties. A few are hiring part-time doctors to carry some of the workload by taking night and weekend shifts. Others are automating processes via new technologies.

Healthcare providers, on average, spend 35% of their time documenting patient data. This time could be better spent seeing more patients, doing leisure activities, or continuing professional development (more commonly known as CPD). In an effort to avoid physician burnout, healthcare providers are discovering more efficient processes for medical documentation.

A majority of healthcare providers have heard of or been exposed to the power of Dragon® for dictation. It’s a speech recognition technology used by medical professionals to breeze through their clinical documentation. The medical dictation is transcribed in real-time, securely in the cloud, and output directly into the electronic medical record (EMR) system or target application (such as Microsoft® Word®, email, etc). Some doctors choose to dictate while their patient is in the room, saving even more time and making sure that important data does not get lost or forgotten later.

The most time-saving and efficient software for medical documentation is one with high medical speech recognition accuracy to document patients’ stories and one that’s affordable for healthcare providers’ budgets. Dragon® Medical® One from Nuance Communications® fits any budget and is proven to save physicians time. Dragon Medical One software offers secure, cloud-based medical speech recognition, user profiles, as well as custom vocabularies and templates.

Doctors can dictate on any compatible device, including a cell phone via the PowerMic Mobile companion app. Dictation Direct offers a 30-day free trial, knowing that once physicians see how much time Dragon saves them, they will continue to use it for their clinical documentation moving forward.
