Medical Transcription: The Efficiency Evolution in Hospitals & Healthcare Practices

medical transcription

Saving time can save lives. It is due to this simple reason that the healthcare sector stands to benefit significantly from technologically advanced transcription services. Medical professionals are often strapped for time and under pressure to stay on top of paperwork while having to see and treat patients. Add long shifts and late nights on call to the equation and we can begin to understand the high-stress nature of the job.

Medical transcription frees up valuable time for doctors and other healthcare professionals to better tend to the needs of their patients. It also removes the burden of having to manually enter data records for storage and safe-keeping of everyday functions such as:

  • Medical History & Physicals
  • Operative Reports
  • Discharge Summaries
  • Medical Research Interviews
  • Consultation & Administrative Letters

Time Equals Money

In allowing more time to be spent on duties of greater urgency, medical transcription helps improve productivity as well as efficiency. Doctors and nurses equipped with a recording device or, better yet — a mobile transcription app — can easily capture key information for quick conversion to highly accurate text. 

The cost of acquiring and maintaining in-house transcription software and staff can be very costly. As hospitals and healthcare practices typically work with limited budgets, the more attractive solution to their transcription needs is outsourcing. Being able to adhere to tight turnaround requirements means transcription can also help healthcare professionals keep up with their fast-paced work environment.

Today, professional medical transcription services are widely available at competitive pricing. Beyond affordability, it’s important to consider the availability of the right expertise, technology, and certifications when deciding which service provider to sign up with.

Keeping Personal Health Information Safe

While increasing efficiency for medical professionals is the main driver behind the use of transcription services, ensuring that personal data in doctor-patient exchanges is safe-guarded is paramount. At TranscribeMe, we can guarantee the secure handling of your submitted audio-recording with our multi-layer security features.

Our highly-skilled medical transcriptionists are always vetted and required to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) before starting any project. This basic first step in data security helps us to uphold HIPAA compliance. We fully adhere to HIPAA standards throughout our services. Other confidentiality protection measures include micro-tasking transcription orders, geo-location, and geo-fencing access permissions.
