Dragon Search now available for medical professionals

Mel Martin

Here's something that will be welcomed by the health community. Nuance Communications has released a free, medical version of Dragon Search called Dragon Medical that lets mobile physicians and other health workers search a variety of medical publications on their iPhone or iPad by just speaking search phrases.

Information on drug interactions, latest medical news and diagnoses are available from the app, as well as a search though Google.

The original Dragon Search allows general information lookup using several search engines. Nuance is now moving toward more specialized apps for professionals.

The app is free for a limited time, and Nuance intends to bring out more apps for health workers, including a version of Dragon Dictation so patient notes and other information can be turned into text and saved.

You can watch a video of the app in action here.
