Professionals such as doctors, nurses, and therapists often dictate patient reports into a handheld recorder. There are several types of reports, and each must be typed in a standard format to prevent misinterpretation of data and medical mistakes.
Here are some examples of the types of medical reports to be transcribed:
As you can imagine, patient care—especially that of hospital patients—may generate many reports a day. Each of these must be produced verbatim from an often hastily spoken recording.
Doctors often record carelessly because they know that the medical transcription has a Slow pedal with which to slow the recording and catch tricky words. What many doctors don't realize is that the slow pedal also distorts the sound, so a quickly spoken word may still be quite difficult to discern.
Another thing to consider is that medical transcriptionists are often considered responsible for catching doctors' errors. Doctors and nurses are busy and often tired. Misspeaking is understandable, but these blips must be corrected.
It's true that many medical facilities and transcription companies have turned to speech-recognition software. Such software can take a health care professional's recording and transform it to a written report in a matter of seconds.
But is this the best approach to transcribing a medical report?
At GoTranscript, we always believe that the human touch is the best way to transcribe any recording. Although proofreaders can correct silly or embarrassing mistakes produced by software, those proofreaders may not always go back to the original recording to double-check information.
When a medical transcriptionist works directly with an audio file, they are far more likely to catch critical errors.
As you can see, medical transcribing services face many challenges in producing fast, affordable, and accurate medical reports.
Luckily, at GoTranscript, we've assembled a team of the most qualified medical transcriptionists from around the world to process your medical dictations and turn them into error-free medical transcripts.
