Medical transcription is a career path that is often unfamiliar to many people. One question we often get asked is how new technology impacts the healthcare documentation industry. Through our strong ties with Medical Transcription Service Organisations (MSTOs) we are confident that voice recognition technology has simply guided medical transcription in a slightly new direction than it was previously.
Medical transcription is an evolving career that has seen a lot of change over the past few years. Transcriptionists have taken on more of an editing role because of changing technology. Instead of transcriptionists transcribing every word of the doctor’s dictation, they play an important role of ensuring that the transcription is accurate by editing reports.
Accuracy of medical transcripts is absolutely paramount in this industry as the transcripts are records of real peoples’ medical history. Critical thinking is a unique human ability that cannot be imitated by any voice recognition technology. It is for this reason that medical transcription remains a significant and crucial part of the Australian medical industry.
Medical transcriptionists continue to find themselves with plenty of work. At TalentMed we see a demand for medical transcriptionists who have the right training to fill these jobs. As the only accredited training provider in the country that specialises in Medical transcription, we are the first place that top companies look to recruit.
