The Evolution of Medical Transcription

The Evolution of Medical Transcription

From simple handwritten notes to using speech-recognition technology, medical transcription has come a long way. The process of converting a physician’s voice recordings into text format, medical transcription originated with a need to maintain accurate, detailed and permanent patient records. It is an important feature of health information management. The records typed by medical transcriptionists range from patient discharge reports to specialist referral letters and patient progress information. The job of a medical transcriptionist not only involves precisely typing medical records, but also having knowledge of various medical terms and health industry jargon.

Medical transcription is a popular job option in America and featured among the best work-at-home jobs in a 2011 Forbes report. And why not! It is a convenient job that is much preferred by medical professionals, housewives, students and other part-timers for over fifty years now. The flexibility of this profession makes it a popular choice- medical transcription can be both an office and a work-at-home job option. In the past, a medical transcriptionist had the task of typing out records into text format by listening to the audio records of a physician. But, the advancement in technology now enables physicians to use voice-recognition technology, leaving a medical transcriptionist to take on the role of an editor-mostly checking sentence structures and the format of reports.

This infographic traces the progress of technology used in medical transcription from before the 1950s till today. It’s interesting to note that technology and transcription are entwined and each decade has heralded many changes in the way records are transcribed. Since the job of a medical transcriptionist involves in-depth knowledge of medical terms, anatomy and pharmacology, grammar as well as speed and accuracy in typing records, training is a must. Signing up for a medical transcription training course from well-established online institutes like CareerStep will help you in your search for the job of a medical transcriptionist or medical transcription editor on websites like FlexJobs. Make sure the training course you sign up for is an Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI)-approved program.

Medical Profession & Possibilities

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Medical Profession & PossibilitiesThe medical profession possesses a wide demographic of possibilities.  The professionals who work in this service area are constantly aiming to provide primary to extensive health care services to the public.  The most common part of the medical profession is that most of those affiliated in the service sector, are easily identified by their attire that is more commonly referred to as scrubs.

Years ago, scrubs were the basic green or blue, slightly oversized pants and shirt made of a durable blend of cotton and polyester.  The material compilation is specifically blended to prevent any body fluids from traveling through the scrubs onto the skin.  There are of course still the basics, which are usually only worn as a standard requirement of the employer. However, scrubs have now taken a relatively different walk on the runway.  The colors are endless and range from bright and vivid to dark and dreary.  (more…)

Why Networking Is So Important For Lawyers – And How To Do It

Why Networking Is So Important For Lawyers - And How To Do ItWhy Networking Is So Important for Lawyersand How to Do It

Remember your first day in elementary school, and all the new things – taking a school bus, meeting new kids from other neighborhoods, to say nothing of lots of new rules? As a lawyer, it’s been 20 years or more since your first school days, but those beginnings can still teach you plenty about adapting to unfamiliar settings and new challenges – like attracting clients to build your law practice.

That all-important grade-school concept of “getting along, is now known as “networking.” Let’s be clear at the start: your primary goal in networking won’t usually be signing up new business for your law firm on the spot. Instead, it’s more like the advantages you may remember if your grade-school classmates decided you were worth their time getting to know. Once you passed that test, you were on your way to turning new acquaintances into friends.

Something similar happens in practicing law: a new client may get referred to your criminal law practice by a law school friend whose firm only handles civil cases, because you’re seen as reliable and knowledgeable. (It also shows law school is another place networking can pay dividends down the line.) Similarly, new business can result when a social contact from a church or charity asks you about a legal problem a friend or relative is having.

While your firm will doubtless employ other marketing efforts, word of mouth is a powerful tool. (more…)
