Medical transcription has been a talk of the town in outsourcing world since a couple of decades. Here I would like to give you an idea about Medical Transcription services and how it works.
Medical Transcription is basically the process of accurately & swiftly transcribing the medical records dictated by doctors and physicians. It is a specialized skill which requires high degree of training and dedication. The doctors examines the patient in hospitals and clinics and dictates important information about the patient’s history, physical examination, diseases, procedures, laboratory tests and diagnoses. They talk in technical terms and often so quickly that you must know approximately what they are supposed to say or you won’t be able to understand it when you hear it!
In USA it is vital and mandatory for physicians, doctors and other healthcare professional’s to keep a medical record of their patients. Through these records they can further communicate their patient’s information with other physicians and insurance companies, etc. These records even help in
* Anticipating future health problems
* Keeps a record of standard preventive measures of the patients
* Identifies deviations from the expected
* Helps as a legal record for any uncertainty
* Assist in clinical researches
To eliminate paperwork and to maintain a huge volume of medical records, hospitals often go for electronic storage in their databases. Such electronic databases allow immediate access to other departments or providers regarding the patient’s history till date, with notes on previous or present medications, notify about the allergies and create a narration on the patient to facilitate healthcare delivery regardless of geographical distance or location.
The document resulting from the process of medical transcription is termed as medical transcripts / reports / record. The medical record details things such as the date of the patient’s visit, the patient's condition, the patient's statements, the physician's physical findings, and the plan of treatment the doctor recommends. These medical reports are generated by the healthcare professional’s on each meeting with a patient on a specific date of service. The transcribed reports are merged with their specific date of service and become a part of patient’s medical history even known as “patients chart”. In all, maintenance of such records facilitates the patient with better health care services.
