Defining Medical Transcription

The job of a medical transcriptionist is to listen to dictated recordings by physicians and other healthcare professionals and transcribe them into medical reports, correspondence, or the patient’s electronic medical record. A medical transcriptionist may work on site for a physician or hospital, through a medical transcription service, or directly for her or himself in a home-based office. After transcription, the medical transcriptionist or the medical transcription service returns the completed documents to the client who in turn reviews, corrects and signs the report. These transcribed documents are then placed in the patients’ permanent medical record.
EZ Scribe Medical Transcription Service uses a vast pool of highly skilled medical transcriptionists to accurately transcribe dictated reports. EZ Scribe’s medical transcriptionists must have at least five years experience in medical transcription and must understand medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, diagnostic procedures, pharmacology, and treatment assessments. EZ Scribe’s transcriptionists must be able to use critical thinking skills to identify discrepancies in dictation, for example, incorrect usage of terms, incorrect medication dosing or incorrect laboratory values.
