Exciting news from our Healthcare team today! See the blog post below from Nick van Terheyden, MD.
Nuance released its latest offering for the iPhone today (as previewed at HIMSS 2010), Dragon Medical Mobile Search, the first of four iPhone solutions for clinicians, bringing the power of medical speech recognition to the smartphone.
The new medical search app gives clinicians a smarter way to search for medical information. It’s a tool for clinicians to dictate a search query and within seconds receive results from a variety of sources such as Drugs.mobi, IMO®, MedLine, MedScape and Google.
The AppAdvice blog reviewed it and shared the following favorable review:
AppAdvice: Dragon Search Goes Medical
"Once again, Nuance Communications has another excellent app on their hands, although this one is much more narrowly tailored. But if you’re working in the medicinal field and want something to aid you on-the-fly with great speech recognition, then this is definitely a great choice. It’s simply a great pocket companion for you while on the job in case you need to reference something or get a refresher on a condition."
You can download the App in iTunes here; it's free. The principle and idea is simple - tap to dictate, speak the search term and automatically you’ll receive relevant information from several popular medical sources:
Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO)
Each of these search tabs appears in a slider across the top and offers a quick look at the search results for each of the medical sources.
You can also watch a video demo here.
