Style guides cover the basics, including standard margins or font style and size. It also instructs your transcriptionist to set up the document by your specifications. When you want drug allergies to be highlighted, let us at 360 Transcription know when you give us a call.
A common style choice after a heading is whether you want the transcriptionist to keep typing on the same line, the line below or insert a new line under the heading.
One more element you could consider is how second-page headers and footers should be formatted. It’s good to send numerous examples of your consult letters (with patient information blacked out or removed) for us to see how you’d like your letters stylized.
When your audio recording quality is lacking, it can often take more time to transcribe a document—requiring addition edit measures. Be sure any background noise is minimal or absent. Wait a moment before turning the page in a patient’s chart—rustling can interfere with the quality of your audio. You’ll save more money on transcription services the more your audio quality is easy to follow.
This is not something that’s controllable, but speaking at moderate speeds makes for faster transcriptions. Let us at 360 Transcription know and we’ll ensure we transcribe verbatim or fix run-on sentences and grammar for any order.
