What We Do

A healthcare documentation specialist or medical transcriptionist, transcribes voice recordings from healthcare professionals such as physicians, with the end result of converting them into written documents. They may also proofread and edit other documents that were the product of a speech recognition software. They also help to interpret medical jargon to prepare the discharge summaries, medical histories, and other documents for patients.

Work Environment

Medical transcriptionists are mainly employed by private, local, and state hospitals. They are also found in physicians’ offices, as well as in administrative and support services. Meanwhile, around 10% of medical transcriptionists are self employed, which means that they are usuallyfree lancers. The majority work within offices but many also work from home, submitting all their information electronically.

How to Become a Medical Transcription

An associate’s degree in medical transcription is available through a variety of schools. Alternatively, there is a certification program that usually only takes on year to complete.
