In essence, transcription is the rapid transformation of data from one format to another. The ability to transcribe is a skill that requires a great deal of training and patience. At Worldwide Dictation, our transcriptionists have mastered this unique profession with proficiency and success.
There are several skills necessary in order to succeed as a transcriptionist. A trained eye and ear are crucial in honing this skill set. There is a high degree of simultaneous analysis required as transcriptionists have to listen to every detail and type the dictation verbatim. A transcriptionist also must be able to understand the terminology and flow of speech that doctors and medical professionals use on a daily basis and accurately transcribe it in prose form.
Medical transcription plays a role in all aspects of the medical field. Doctors rely on it due to the accuracy of records and the speed of recording. Moreover, patients benefit from a better level of care resulting from accurate and up-to-date record keeping. Aside from benefiting the patients, hospitals and doctors could finally see a substantial decrease in medical malpractice lawsuits based on inaccurate and unorganized record keeping. Organized record-keeping is mandatory for hospital administrators and medical office staff as they will lose fewer files which could be of great importance. Worldwide Dictation is aware of every one of these needs each time a transcriptionist begins to transcribe a patient’s medical records. Insurance companies also benefit from our services because they too need accurate and fast transcription of their recorded statements.
Outsourcing medical transcription presents enormous advantages, including the ability to conduct research with the detailed notes and analysis of physical illness. In this capacity, Worldwide Dictation is proud to play role in future medical advances.
