Testimonials for Twin Cities EMR Consulting

Tim Ackerman, DDS, MD, FACS

“I lead a busy Integrated Behavioral Health Program comprised of a Tribal Consortium providing medical, dental, and mental health services to Native and Non-Native patients in the Sierra Foothills.  The Mental Health field is marred with lengthy charting requirements that often burden busy clinicians in the performance of their daily contacts with patients.  Twin Cities EMR Consulting helped me set up, train, and organize Dragon Medical to work for my practice and this has allowed me to reduce my charting times significantly.  Another major plus is that Dragon has allowed me to write more detailed notes that are vital in our integrated practice, thus making communications between specialty groups more efficient.  I highly recommend Dragon Medical and Twin Cities EMR Consulting, as this software and these services will make your staff more efficient and happier, further supporting them through the tending of patients’ suffering and healing.”

“Dragon has made a world of difference in the amount of time I now spend documenting my patients’ visits.  I have an extra hour today that I would not have without Dragon or this PowerMic-II.  New to Dragon, I have had to spend a small amount of time training it to my voice, however I am still leaving the office earlier than ever.  The Twin Cities EMR Consulting team is a world-class operation which has helped to streamline my documentation and allowed me to spend more time with my family.”

kubicIn a busy pediatric specialty practice, communication with referring physicians is exceedingly important. Dragon Medical allows me to complete my office note, and the letter to the patient’s primary care provider, before the patient leaves the office. Efficiency with Dragon improves with practice, just like the care of patients. A huge bonus is that I no longer take charts home to dictate at night. Thanks Dragon!”

“Since using Dragon on a daily basis, my efficiency has improved markedly. I’ve been able to shorten my appointment times down from 30 minutes to 20 minutes, I’m able to see more patients, and still get my dictations done before the end of the work day.”

In June 2014, Ridgeview Medical Center launched a major Electronic Health Record optimization initiative in our 109-bed acute-care hospital. To support our efforts, Ridgeview engaged Twin Cities EMR Consulting to train, enhance and standardize our use of Dragon 360 Enterprise speech recognition technology for physicians and providers.

Dr. Kaniewski and the Twin Cities EMR team invested time learning Ridgeview’s EHR documentation system components before go-live, and their knowledge strengthened our training and platform as they set up physicians for Dragon. Additionally, Dragon Version 12 has an impressive degree of inherent accuracy.

Twin Cities EMR individually engaged providers on their own time with one-on-one personalized training. This significantly benefited our optimization and, more important, rapidly achieved provider competency and proficiency using Dragon. Through these efforts, Ridgeview saw more than 1,500 documents created in the EHR in the first two weeks post go-live – exceeding our expectations for that timeframe.

The Twin Cities EMR team was accommodating, responsive, technically independent regarding support requirements, and well-versed in change management.

“Dragon Medical software has made a substantial improvement in the efficiency of my private surgical practice. Previously, I spent close to one hour per patient typing the results of diagnostic ultrasound studies and surgical procedure notes into my EMR. With all of my self-created templates loaded into Dragon, I breeze through the variable fields and complete a chart in ten to fifteen minutes.

Now, I am able to chart in between patient visits, leaving little to no work at the end of the day. I am extremely pleased with this software, and my only regret is that I did not purchase it two years ago when I opened my practice. In addition, the start-up technical support and training from Twin Cities EMR Consulting is unparalleled, making the transition simple.”
