An important factor in the day-to-day running of the healthcare sector, accurate medical transcription is an essential tool for doctors and patients alike to convey important information, from diagnoses to reports.
What is medical transcription?
Medical transcription involves taking audio-recorded or draft medical reports from healthcare professionals and converting these into one coherent written report.
Medical transcription benefits all areas and specialisms within the medical profession, from GPs to hospitals, and at all levels of seniority. Transcribed medical reports are often updated with new details of a patient’s condition, medication and other important information. The field also involves the transcription of referral letters, speeches to conferences and specific reports within the different fields of the medical profession.
A skilled medical transcriber will also be able to format their documents in line with the required templates of the establishment or practitioner. Although the job does not require specific training, medical transcribers will often seek additional qualifications to ensure that they can gain a fuller understanding of certain medical specialisms.
At Global Voices we take our position as a leading provider of medical transcription services incredibly seriously. We will only ever provide the medical industry with typists who have extensive knowledge of the sector and a highly developed understanding of its specialist requirements. Our typists are confident and up to date with medical terminology and always operate in accordance with our strict confidentiality policies. These working standards enable us to provide excellent support for the healthcare industry.
Why Is Medical Transcription Important?
Medical transcription services are crucial in ensuring healthcare professionals have a full understanding of the needs of their patients. The resulting reports allow for doctors to have a full picture of a patient’s condition, their treatment to date, and the best course of action for the future. These records are also crucial on a legal basis, as hospitals are required to keep full logs of all treatment and recommendations given to their patients.
MT relies on expert understanding of complex terminology, guaranteeing a level of precision which is not only crucial from a medical standpoint, but a personal one as well. Transcription of a patient’s medical history, along with treatments and medication, ultimately creates a rounded picture of the patient themselves, which gives doctors a greater understanding of their needs. This aspect of MT emphasises the importance of it being conducted by human professionals rather than speech recognition software, which has yet to be able to achieve this more nuanced approach.
Particularly in cases where there are multiple practitioners, or even hospitals, which are offering treatment to a single individual, well-transcribed records are the best way for all staff involved to forge a way ahead for their patient.
Our transcribers all have at least five years’ experience, and are experts in their sector. You can be sure when you request transcription from Global Voices that you will receive an accurate, professional service.
