The world is your workstation

Nuance Dragon Medical Direct is a secure, cloud—based speech platform for physicians and other clinicians to securely document complete patient care in the EHR.


Achieve higher quality documentation
and greater flexibility

The patient story should be dictated by clinicians, not technology limitations. Conversational AI empowers physicians to document more naturally.

Always available

Dragon Medical Direct is designed for speed, accuracy, and flexibility, with personalized vocabularies and templates that can be accessed and shared across the widest range of devices in the industry.

Secure and compliant

Our solutions support HIPAA requirements for patient security and confidentiality by employing secure encryption methods throughout the workflow. Our cloud solutions feature 99.5% uptime and run on geographically dispersed, active-active, data centers hosted on a HITRUST CSF certified hosting infrastructure.

Greater accuracy

Achieve 99% accuracy with no voice profile training required, and a single cloud‑based profile that is auto‑established at first use. Manual activities such as accent adjustments and microphone calibration, are now automatic, providing greater accuracy, a lower word error rate, and an optimal clinician experience from start.

Easy to install and maintain

No complex configurations; clinicians can begin dictating in less than five minutes using your existing infrastructure. Automatic updates mean less work for your IT staff and less hassle for your clinicians.

Budget friendly

Affordable subscription‑based pricing with little upfront capital investment makes it easier for healthcare organizations to plan budgets with predictable expenses.
