How does it work?
When we open a letter from a doctor or read a medical report, there is a very high chance that a medical transcriptionist (MT) has transcribed it. Medical transcriptionists listen to an audio of a doctor recording notes from a patient consultation and then converting this audio file into a written report. These reports are then added to the patient’s medical record.
Being able to understand what the doctor has recorded, correctly type that information, and identify any errors, is very important, as this will reduce the chances that patients will get the wrong treatments. Therefore, a medical transcriptionist provides quality healthcare and ensures these reports are consistently accurate.
