1. We saw this Australian announcement but we don't believe DMPE 4.3 sales will be discontinued at the end of December; at least in the US/Canada. Nuance typically honors sales until stock is depleted.

2. Referring to DMO as a superior product is misleading. It would have been more accurate for Nuance to state that DMO includes advantages that are not available in DMPE 4. However, DMPE 4 also has a number of significant advantages that are not available in DMO.

3. Our preference would be for DMO to include the missing DMPE 4 features such as Advanced Scripting command capability, artificial intelligence commands, the ability to transcribe a recording, to name a few.


4. This is not the 1st time Nuance tried to discontinue DMPE 2 (at the time). The last time Nuance made this attempt, small practices simply refused to purchase DMO. We suspect Nuance took a financial hit and had to reverse their decision. We wouldn't be surprised if it happens again but DMO has also benefited from a number of significant improvements. We will have to wait and see…

 

5. One last biggie… A full copy of DMPE 4 is $1600 and and could potentially last many years because there are no other expenses (beyond a microphone and computer). DMO includes a free PowerMic III microphone but requires a minimum one-year lease to the tune of $1614 for the 1st year and $99 a month forever. Nuance puts a good spin on DMO but $1188 per year is a significant rotating expense.

For me, DMO not having Advanced Scripting capability is a non-starter. That said, most docs don't use custom commands--and don't know what they are missing!

P.S. Should have put this thread initially under DMPE section, so will move.
