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.
