Medical Dictation into EMR / EHR (Electronic Health Record) using Braina

We know that EHR/EMR is real-time, patient-centered documentation software intended to make health info available instantly and securely to authorized users whenever and wherever they need it.EHR systems are built to share data between healthcare providers and organizations, including laboratories, specialized experts, medical imaging facilities, pharmacies, schools and workplace clinics.

In the United States, the potential that electronic health records (EHRs) offer remains largely untapped. Used effectively, EHRs help physicians provide higher-quality, more personalized care to patients—at a lower cost. Let’s see how you can become more productive with your EHR using Braina Pro software for medical dictation.

What is Braina?
Braina is a multi-language intelligent personal assistant, voice command and voice recognition software. You can use Braina Pro speech to text software voice to dictate text to any software in your Windows PC including Microsoft Word, Excel, EHR / EMR etc.

How Braina is a helpful tool for EHR (Electronic Health Record)?

Braina is a true game-changer for the EHR charting process. Many physicians make a voice recording of medical notes for transcription later and have been doing it that way for years. However, by integrating Braina speech to text software with electronic health record (EHR) software, physicians can add necessary notes directly to the EHR using only by speaking while meeting with the patient.

Braina’s speech to text conversion technology accurately “types” the notes directly into the medical record in real time as they are spoken in your choice of language. The ease of adding notes in a manner that is compatible with the physician’s workflow improves practice efficiency and saves time.

Braina pro includes medical specialty and sub specialty vocabularies. With an accuracy rate of up to 99%, you can dictate confidently knowing they’ll have high accuracy from the first day of use without need of any voice training. You can also create custom voice commands.
