[Histonet] Dragon

We were using mModal and are in transition to Voicebrook which uses Dragon as a speech recognition set up with SQ CoPath for both grossing and microscopic dictations. We have mixed user feelings, too.  Our PA who does the majority of the gross, uses it and has lots of templates preset to simplify the gross. She uses voice commands to navigate through CoPath.  She is very fast and seldom has an error.  With the pathologists, it's a bit of a mixed bag, somewhat dependent on how they embrace the technology change.  Proper installation and set up, complete with templates is key.  The use of a headset with mic seems to produce the best results as opposed to a gooseneck microphone.  I hope this helps.  Terri

Does anyone use Dragon while grossing? We are looking at switching to Dragon and wanted some feedback for use in pathology.  
Currently, we use M*Modal for dictations and then have transcriptionists type all of the information in Cerner reports.

I used it exclusively in GI lab for years and loved it but we only did small biopsies, so it was super simple.  We use it now throughout the system I work in and there are a variety of opinions.  Some of the PAs love it and some really struggle.  Same with the pathologists.  So we live in dual worlds with both Dragon and MModal.  If you would like to contact me separately I am happy to discuss! Thanks Cristi
