Also, you never have to worry about managing backlogs because of vacation and illness.
  • Can transcription be uploaded to my EMR?
    Absolutely, this is part of our regular transcription service. You can dictate the portions of the patient record that you feel need more detail and use the point and click features for the rest.
  • What is the turnaround time?
    This is customized to your needs. You will have your reports when you need them.
  • Are we required to sign a long-term contract and what types of contracts are available?

  • Am I able to use my existing templates, formats, and normals for transcribed reports?"
    We can incorporate any templates, formats, or your “normal” you routinely use in your dictation. When your account is set up, we work with you to ensure your reports are formatted exactly the way you want them.
  • What are some of your quality assurance standards?
    We pride ourselves on our mentoring program. Once all the supervisors have transcribed for a while to get to know the account, work is then assigned to a specific transcriptionist. A Quality Assurance (QA) editor/transcription manager reviews the transcriptions until they feel the MT has a strong grasp of the work. We typically assign a few transcriptionists to the same client so that they all become familiar with your dictation style to ensure quality and a quicker turnaround time. This way, we also always have a transcriptionist to cover your account.
