Although medical transcription is one of many steps in the overall healthcare process, it is certainly a vital one. The purpose of medical transcription is to maximize doctor treatment through dictation and the accurate transcription of the dictation as well as the patient’s health record. This complete file will ensure continuous care to the patient, and eliminate unnecessary procedures.
The goal of a medical transcriptionist is to be completely accurate. A medical transcriptionist must undergo substantial training to understand key medical terms and codes. The American Association for Medical Transcription applies industry guidelines for each medical transcriptionist to achieve and maintain in practice.
The AAMT recommends a 100 percent accuracy goal with regard to critical errors, a 98 percent accuracy goal with regard to major errors, and a 98 percent accuracy goal for all errors in the report. This includes minor errors. At Worldwide Dictation, the guidelines of the AAMT are not only followed, they are usually exceeded.
Each of our medical transcriptionists is routinely tested in furtherance of these standards. Worldwide Dictation has a staff of experienced and well-trained medical transcriptionists.
