An interesting post from our friends at the My Docs Online blog about why so many physicians are still using medical transcriptionists. It’s an industry that continues to provide value, despite advances in Electronic Medical Record technology and voice recognition.
The increase in use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems has led to a decrease in the traditional provider pattern of Dictate/Transcribe/Print. However, Medical Transcription is still here because several important segments of the medical community are likely to continue using dictation and transcription for the foreseeable future. These include providers needing to communicate with professionals outside the practice. Physicians doing a second opinion, or exams for insurance companies (life insurance, accidents) or workers comp and disability claims, are all key users of traditional dictation and transcription services.
