Physicians realize how easy-to-use mobile dictation apps like Dragon Medical One and Mobius Conveyor can streamline clinical documentation. Doctors can use a smartphone and the latest speech-to-text medical dictation software to reduce charting time by hours each week.
Dragon has been a popular dictation software for years. Their speech recognition platform, built by Nuance, is the most advanced medical dictation technology available. But Nuance’s speech recognition technology is also available via other apps like Mobius Conveyor. Conveyor is a premium dictation platform that works on Mac and has a smoother user interface than Dragon’s Medical One app.
The key to efficient mobile dictation is easy and intuitive integration with the electronic medical record. Mobius was designed for doctors, by doctors, so that dictations seamlessly synchronize with your existing EMR.
Reasons to upgrade from Dragon to Mobius Conveyor
If the following features would improve your workday, it’s time to upgrade from Dragon to Mobius.
1) Instantly dictate on any computer
Mobius Conveyor is an app that lives on your iPhone, allowing you to dictate on any computer you use for work instantly. Simply plug in the Conveyor USB, speak into your smartphone microphone, and your words appear wherever you place the computer cursor.
This easy pairing functionality makes Conveyor the best solution for doctors who move around. With a traditional dictation solution like Dragon, you would need the app downloaded on every computer at each workstation you use.
Mobius, by contrast, operates like an external keyboard or mouse. Your smartphone houses the software so you can instantly connect to any computer without app downloads or IT department authorization.
2) Easy user interface
Doctors love Mobius Conveyor’s well-designed user interface. While Conveyor has US-based live support if questions arise, the app doesn’t require a user manual. It’s intuitive and straightforward and feels more like a smartphone app than the powerful EMR companion that it is.
As breast cancer surgeon John Williams, MD, put it, “When I started with Dragon, I had to do a two-hour video course. When I got up and running with Mobius, I just downloaded the app, synced my phone, and started talking. To be honest, that’s all you need.”
3) Dictate on your Mac
Perhaps the primary reason physicians switch from Dragon to Mobius is that Mobius works on their Mac. Dragon is only compatible with Windows, whereas Mobius Conveyor works on any computer.
If you’re a doctor who dictates on a Windows computer at the hospital but uses a Mac at home or when traveling, you waste time typing away from the office. Mobius gives you the same excellent dictation product everywhere you go.
4) Dictate on the go with Secure Memos
Do you ever wish you could catch up on charting during small breaks throughout the day? With traditional dictation apps like Dragon, your dictations will have to wait until you’re back at your desk.
But with Mobius Conveyor, you can dictate anywhere, even if you’re away from a computer. Conveyor’s unique Secure Memos feature allows you to record your dictation as a text memo for later transfer into a patient’s chart. In the meantime, HIPAA-compliant Conveyor app securely stores your recording.
If you’re considering an upgrade from Dragon to Mobius, download Conveyor from the App Store to try it out. Here is a features list to summarize how Mobius compares with its competitors.
