medical transcription

Medical Transcription

     Medical Transcription has undergone some great changes over the years largely due to technology.  The need for accurate note keeping will never change, but the methods of recording this information have made dramatic advances.
     Many doctors used to just scratch a note in the patient's chart while they were in the exam room. That is not so common anymore.   Some doctors will walk around with a hand held tape recorder and talk into it all day long. That tape then gets sent to someone to be transcribed. 

     The most up to date way to get transcription done today is for the doctor to phone in his records.  The doctor sits at the phone and gives all the notes on his or her patients to a recording which goes to a tracscription company.

     The transcription company that he phones them into then transcribes them to the doctor's online site. With this method the doctor can access his records from anywhere, home, vacation, the hospital! 

     This method cuts way down on the paper in the office, as well as making it easier for the doctor to access the patients records.  This can be very important in case of emergencies.

     Most larger clinics have computers right in the exam rooms and enter the office visit information right into the database during or directly after the visit.  The information is then stored automatically.
