Healthcare providers are always looking for ways to improve patient care without incurring additional costs. As a result, many physicians and most specialists are employing some form of dictation in their practice. While some providers are already benefiting from using medical transcription services, others are using dictation software and are realising that it doesnâ€™t save them the amount of time they thought it would.
Here are the top four advantages for hiring a medical transcription service to transcribe your dictation.
They deliver the highest accuracy rates. One of the major advantages of using a medical transcription service is their accuracy rate. The best firms to consider are hybrid agencies. Hybrid agencies use a combination of high-end professional transcription software and trained medical transcriptionists. This arrangement enables them to process dictations very quickly with nearly 100% accuracy. The more accurate your transcription is, the less time you have to spend making corrections before adding it to the patientâ€™s clinical file.
They improve the efficiency of your clinic. When you use a medical transcription service, you simply upload your digital dictation and they take care of the rest while you continue with your daily routine. This allows both the physician and clinical staff to focus on patient care and other tasks rather than transcribing stacks of patient files that can take days to complete.
They can lower your cost. Many physicians only consider the cost of purchasing dictation software and donâ€™t take into consideration the amount of time they and their staff spend processing each transcription. This hidden cost typically makes dictation software more expensive than using a medical transcription service.
No software purchase or capital expense required. When you use a medical transcription service there is no software for you to install or complicated set ups.Consider companies that donâ€™t require contracts and that only charge you for each line they transcribe. Some firms even have a mobile app that makes uploading digital dictation quick and easy.
