Nuance Support for DMPE Discontinued
Consider Healthcare Privacy Laws & Potential Violations
APRIL 14, 2022 As support for Dragon Medical Practice Edition is discontinued, providers must consider PIPEDA compliance and other provincial regulations when running unsupported software which may pose a security risk to their healthcare business. PIPEDA, as the Canadian equivalent of HIPAA in the United States, includes significant penalties and fines per violation for non-compliance.*
With this in mind, VocaLinks continues to provide a specially-priced upgrade path to Dragon Medical One (DMO) cloud-based medical speech recognition.
Dragon Medical One is HITRUST CSF-certified and uses a secure desktop app to keep data private and protected. It helps increase productivity and offers more flexibility and personalization while establishing a firm foundation for organizations to take advantage of new and future innovations.

Nuance advises that customers familiarize themselves with the latest advice from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and any other applicable provincial privacy laws.
