Lifetime Health Medical Group, a non-profit primary care delivery system based in Buffalo and Rochester, N.Y., has integrated Nuance’s Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 9 with its EMR system.

Lifetime Health Medical said Dragon eliminates physician reliance on data entry through the keyboard.

"Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical allows healthcare provider organizations and patients to enjoy the enhancements in care associated with electronic medical records while providing physicians a comfortable and natural way to operate EMR systems," said Peter Durlach, senior vice president, healthcare marketing and product strategy for Burlington, Mass.-based Nuance.
