Announcing Dragon Medical One 2020.2

Arriving July 7, 2020

Nuance & Voice Automated is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of Dragon Medical One 2020.2. This latest update carries through the 2020.X naming convention where X indicates the calendar quarter and contains new features and product fixes that align with our initiatives to meet customer demands. Expanding on version 2020.1 improvements, Dragon Medical One 2020.2 includes centralized administrator control and expanded support for dictation within EHR systems.
Important Announcements
End of support for Dragon Medical One on Windows 7

Microsoft recently announced the end of life for Windows 7 operating system. Consistent with our third-party support policy, Nuance will no longer support Dragon Medical One on Windows 7.

Removal of “Hide Dragon” command

Virtual assistant capabilities are triggered in Dragon Medical One with the “Hey Dragon” command. To ensure reliable performance of its time-saving benefits and avoid potential confusion, the similar-sounding “Hide Dragon” voice command will be removed with the release of Dragon Medical One 2020.2. Users can minimize the DragonBar with the voice command “Close Dragon.” This will hide/minimize but not exit Dragon Medical One.

Online Dragon Medical Training

Dragon Medical One users can access a variety of short instructional videos free of charge and learn how to use its powerful features. Topics include installing and configuring PowerMic Mobile, creating auto-texts, and much more. Access the course catalog through the Dragon Medical One help menu or by saying “Open training.” Learn more about accessing Dragon Medical training in this short video.

What's new in this release
Managing Dragon Medical One user default settings

Administrators can use the Nuance Management Center (NMC) to define and lock default user settings such as text transfer method, PowerMic button mapping, etc., rather than configuring each user individually. By defining standard settings by group, by site, or across the organization, Administrators create an efficient, familiar, predictable dictation experience. Learn more about managing default settings for user options through the NMC in this short video.

Expanded support for dictation within EHR systems

Advanced EHR text controls extend Dragon Medical One capabilities and enhance user workflows by enabling not only the convenience of dictating at the cursor directly into EHR fields but also the use of voice commands to navigate between fields, trigger macros, and edit or format text. This expanded capability is now available in Cerner’s CoPathPlus 2019 (TX Text Control X15 ActiveX).

Improved Google Chrome experience

Administrators who have deployed the Google Chrome Extension can use the MSI installer to both install and register Dragon Medical One with Chrome, reducing the need for users to restart Google Chrome to use Dragon Medical One within the browser.

New DragonBar design

The DragonBar rounded corners display incorrectly in virtual server environments. To present a consistent look for all users, the corners are now square and the DragonBar is a rectangle.

Improved visibility of Dragon Medical Advisor notifications

The value of Dragon Medical Advisor guidance is limited if users don’t see the alerts to add specificity details. To help, the Dragon Medical One icon in the notification area will temporarily flash and display the number of advice items available for review by the user. Note: Users working in virtual server environments will see numbers, but the notification will not flash.

Dragon Medical One Analytics daily refresh

To give administrators more timely information for monitoring Dragon Medical One adoption, Dragon Medical One analytics are now refreshed daily, increasing the frequency from weekly. Administrators can access daily, weekly and monthly analytics by clicking on the Analytics tab on the home page of the Nuance Management Center. Learn more about accessing Dragon Medical One Analytics in this short video.
