Zephyr-TEC Evaluation Services
You may be asking yourself…
Zephyr-TEC evaluation services can answer these questions for you.
Zephyr-TEC performs on-site and online system evaluations to determine the best way to implement and integrate speech recognition and/or digital dictation software.
Dragon® Speech Feasibility Study
The most effective way to determine if Dragon will integrate with proprietary applications or mainframe environments is to perform a Speech Feasibility Study.
Zephyr-TEC will evaluate your computer hardware, applications and workflow in order to determine the compatibility and viability of using Dragon speech recognition software with proprietary applications.
This can be done on-site or remotely - via WebEx and the telephone - with the assistance of local IT staff.
Once completed, we provide a detailed written report of our findings along with our recommendations. These recommendations will include computer specifications, edition of Dragon, peripherals, installation, integration, training and support.
- An analysis of the computer, network, custom software or mainframe applications to be used with speech
- Set up and testing of speech recognition software
- Testing of speech recognition software with MS Word, Excel and Outlook (if applicable) and up to 4 additional applications
- Interviews with the users of the system (if available)
- Comprehensive written report recommending software, accessories, integration, training and support
- Recommendations for computer and software upgrades
- Estimated productivity and reduction of keyboarding/mousing
- Honest analysis regarding the compatibility and effectiveness of Dragon with your workflow and software

Dragon Medical Practice Edition Remote Desktop Feasibility Study
Dragon Medical Practice Edition (DMPE) is widely acknowledged to be a great tool for helping doctors and medical professionals achieve good productivity when used for direct dictation into the EHR, EMR or Word.
But if you access your EMR via Remote Desktop (RDP) Dragon can have issues with one or more of the following:
- Spacing and capitalization
- No Selecting or Correction capability (without Dictation Box)
- SmartText (text macros) and Command Macros do not work
- Jumping cursor, inconsistent or inexplicable behavior
- “Ghost” text – text that just seems to paste into a text field
Fortunately, Zephyr-TEC’s Remote Desktop Feasibility Study allows for Dragon to be installed and tested on your Remote Desktop configuration.
- Online assistance with proper setup, configuration and testing of Dragon on the Terminal Server where the executable for the EMR resides
- Testing of Dragon with the EMR via RDP to determine what level of functionality can be achieved in the EMR with Dragon
- Verbal report of our findings
- Estimated go forward costs if test is deemed successful
- Honest analysis regarding the compatibility and effectiveness of Dragon with your EMR
- (2) USB headset/microphones for testing (not returnable once used)
