EGT is excited to announce the successful implementation of Dragon Medical Direct – the innovative, AI powered Speech Recognition Technology – at American Hospital Dubai

Dragon Medical Direct helps to improve quality of care, physician satisfaction, speed and turnaround of clinical documentation. Physicians complete higher-quality notes faster and more effectively with clinical documentation solutions.

To address its transcription and narrative challenges, American Hospital Dubai trusted Emerging Global Technologies to implement Dragon® Medical, solution from Nuance Communications to streamline the documentation process, improve the quality and provide real-time access to patient documentation. This solution enables physicians to speak their notes—translating their voice into a detailed clinical narrative that feeds directly into the EHR hence eliminating the need for manual transcription and drastically reducing the delays in completing patient documentation.

For us, the biggest benefit is that we can now get complete information in the patient’s record in real-time and provide access to anyone who might need it. This is imperative for improving the transition of care.” –Ahmad Fathi Yahya, CIO, American Hospital Dubai.
