Can I stop dosage abbreviations from expanding when I am dictating with Dragon Medical Practice Edition?
Yes, you can disable the expansion of abbreviations such as “QHS” to “at bed time”. This can be useful when dictating into some EMR’s that require the code in a particular field. Below you can find the steps on disabling this feature.
Step 1 Open and Change the DMPE Formatting Settings
1. In the DragonBar, select Tools> Auto-Formatting Options as illustrated below.
2. Select the “Miscellaneous” tab.
3. Uncheck the “Expand dosage abbreviations” option and click Apply>OK option as illustrated below.
Congratulations! You are done! Now your dictations will not automatically expand dosage abbreviations. Kick the tires and give it a spin!
