To Upgrade or Not to Upgrade?

Best Reasons to Upgrade:

  • Your EMR Vendor states that you need Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2
  • You use or plan to use Windows 8 or Windows 10; or Microsoft Office 2013 or Office 2016
  • You dictate into Internet Explorer 10 or 11(not supported on prior Dragon Medical releases)
  • You are currently using Dragon Medical 10 or Dragon Medical Small Practice 10. Nuance only offers upgrade pricing for those upgrading one or two releases. Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 is a two-release upgrade, waiting would mean that you'd need to buy a new license ($1599.99 list price)

If you are happy with Dragon Medical Practice Edition and do not plan to buy a PC with Windows 8 or Office 2013 in the next 2 years, then you may consider skipping this upgrade.

System Requirements

If you are successfully running Dragon Medical Practice Edition on a system you will be almost always be OK with Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2. A dual-core CPU, 2.4GHz or faster (faster the better) is recommended. But Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 does a good job of adapting to a wide range of processors.

Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 requires Windows-XP SP-3 (32-bit); Vista SP2, 32-bit or 64-bit; Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit; Windows 8 32-bit or 64-bit; or Windows Server 2008 R2. At least 2GB RAM is required on Windows Windows-XP or Windows Vista 32-bit, otherwise at least 4GB RAM.

To use the Remote Desktop Protocol capabilities available in Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2, you need to either use Windows 8 Professional, Windows 10 Profeional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Enterprise, or be running Terminal Services using Windows Server 2008 SP2 or later.

A minimum 1GHz CPU is required for Nuance Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2 products. At that speed, performance will normally be poor. A 1 MB or larger L2 cache is required, that primarily affects the (unusual) buyer who has a system with a CPU made by VIA (very low power, light systems), or a system using an early model Intel Atom CPU.

If your computer system does not meet these requirements, it may still be worthwhile buying an upgrade to preserve future upgrade options or to run in a slightly-slower mode.
