Everything You Need to Know About Automated Transcription Services

Thanks to technology, a significant number of healthcare facilities have made the decision to shift away from time-consuming and costly human transcription services and implement automated transcription instead.

These healthcare entities have found that automated transcription offers them a variety of benefits that improves the profitability and efficiency of their organization. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from automated transcription services.

Benefits of Automated Transcription

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of automated transcription is the flexibility that it offers physicians. In recent years, many physicians have decided to use smartphones and tablets in their practice. Rather than being forced to use a specific device, automated transcription gives physicians the ability to choose if they’d like to dictate through a smartphone, tablet, traditional phone, PC, or workstation. They can enjoy accurate dictation from any device they choose.

Automated transcription is also flexible because it gives physicians the opportunity to record and edit their own documents or opt for quality checks and a more formal transcription process if they prefer. With cutting-edge automated transcription services by their side, physicians can complete their documents at a faster pace and increase their productivity as a result.

Since automated transcription can fit into virtually any workflow, physicians can integrate it with their EHR and dictate directly into it. Regardless of whether they decide to outsource the entire transcription process, keep it in house, or a combination of both, pairing automated transcription with EHR can lead to the highest quality of patient care.

How Automated Transcription at Fast Chart Works

Fast Chart’s partnership with M*Modal has made it possible for us to automate transcription via a web-based, digital voice capture. The automated transcription process begins when a speech recognition engine converts audio to text and instantly directs them to the proper editor.

Next, physicians can sign the documents electronically. Once all of the documents are finalized, they will appear in CDA or HL7 format and can be uploaded to an EHR. Final documents can also be routed directly to Fast Chart’s Computer Assisted Coding system to make coding reimbursement easier so that denials can be minimized and inefficiencies can be reduced.
