Medical transcription is a field that is ever-growing and changing. There was a time when transcriptionists only used their fingers and minds to transcribe. While there is still a great deal of brain power involved in transcription, medical transcriptionists also have a variety of tools that they can use to help them to perfect their transcriptions. Medical transcriptionists transcribe the spoken work of healthcare providers. They can use technology to type with more speed and precision. A medical transcriptionist must be versed in medical terminology. Spelling and grammar are extremely important when it comes to transcription as well. Apart from that, a transcriptionist must also be able to correct the healthcare provider’s grammar, punctuation, and dictation errors. A transcriptionist must comply with all procedures, policies, and HIPPA regulations.
An Independent Medical Exam is an exam that a doctor does on a patient who may have been injured at work or in an accident. This exam is not only extremely detailed, but it is of utmost importance. This is an exam that a patient or a company can use to prove or disprove a disability. IMEs are medical reports that can also be used in court, so every detail is reviewed carefully. Since these exams are so impactful, it is vital that they be transcribed by a transcriber who is versed in medical, legal, and insurance terminology. In that way, the documentation can be accurate and precise.
The Variety of a Transcriber
Technology allows transcribers to work in a variety of settings. They can work in a doctor’s office, their own office, at home, or on the go. As long as transcribers have their equipment, they can work from anywhere. Some medical facilities hire transcribers to work as staff transcribers and savvy companies work with transcription staffing companies that can fill their transcription needs at any time. These transcription companies provide highly skilled and trained transcriptionists at an affordable rate. These transcriptionists work in a team to transcribe, proofread and edit on time. Quality transcriptionists play a vital role in the healthcare and legal fields. They can use their skills and expertise to give patients the benefits and health care they deserve.
