Allow providers to use Dragon to enter text, have discrete data recognition
I am a Dragon user - I want to dictate my exam and hit a button that will extract common medical terms that I have dictated in my exam or review of systems into discrete data for faster docmentation - and to allow E&M Coding support. I use some text steps to document some parts of my visit becuase it is faster but I have to give up coding help. I noticed a discrete data icon on the ribbon bar - and it appears to want to use NLP (Natural Language Processing, to do just that - but it does not work correctly as it is not just looking at the text step it is trying to extract data from all steps of the wizard including any medications that are listed in my template as choice items. I should be able to just use it to extract data as needed based on my choice of discrete data or text. Today any step that is text does not offer any coding toward E&M codes - but trying this data extraction it looks like it could work if it was working correctly.
