Medical Transcription Outsourcing – The effective element in almost every medical practice
Imagine a hospital scenario in Washington D.C- a doctor dictates medical diagnosis for a patient onto a digital recorder. Thousands of miles away, in a company located in the Electronics City of Bangalore a young Medical Transcriptionist receives the dictation in a voice file, and then readies herself for the task in hand. Within few hours, the spoken words are proficiently transcribed, formatted, proof-read and transformed into a digital medical record, which will ultimately become a part of patients’ permanent files, ready to be retrieved by the hospital for insurance and research purpose. This is no imagination but a reality! Medical transcription outsourcing has turned out to be an immensely cost-effective venture. Many medical professionals do not have the time or the expertise needed to complete the task of patient information management system. They use medical transcription services to complete the job. Hospitals and Doctors are finding it more preferable to outsource the dictation rather than doing in-house. Outsourcing Medical Transcription allows physicians to not only devote more time to attending patients but also paves the way for standards in the documentation and management of medical records.
