Digital Transcription Services: What Do They Entail

In the past, transcription was performed in non-digital forms such as VHS and audio cassettes. Unfortunately, these storage devices were limited in their capacity and often led to unclear audio. The good news, however, is that technology has made digital transcription today’s norm so healthcare providers no longer have to rely on VHS and audio cassettes.

A digitally typed conversion of an audio file is referred to as digital transcription. With digital transcription services, healthcare providers can enjoy clearer audio and faster turnaround times. Here at Fast Chart, we are pleased to offer digital transcription services to medical organizations of all shapes and sizes.

Physicians and other healthcare professionals dial directly into our digital transcription system. Once the medical chart has been dictated and the digital transcription has been completed, it will be thoroughly reviewed for accuracy and returned to the practice.

We return documents in various methods including fax, email, modem, and internet file transfer. Healthcare facilities depend on us to return these documents in a timely fashion so that they can facilitate patient care.

Unlike other digital transcription systems, ours is a breeze to use, does not take a great deal of time to implement, and can be easily integrated with any EHR or EMR provider. As soon as it has been implemented, physicians will be given their own unique ID number as well as a dictation format they can follow.

By taking advantage of our state-of-the-art digital transcription services, healthcare practices can enjoy the following benefits:

Money Savings

Outsourcing digital transcription services can save healthcare facilities a significant amount of money on outsourcing, labor, administrative, and training costs. Additionally, it can eliminate the costs of expensive equipment.

Optimal Accuracy

It can be difficult for healthcare organizations with an in house digital transcription team to manage accuracy. Fast Chart is selective about the transcription team we hire and guarantees the highest levels of accuracy.

Scalable Services

Transcription volume tends to fluctuate. Outsourcing allows healthcare practices to receive the amount of service they need to get the job done so they don’t have to pay for resources they do not need.

HIPAA Compliance

HIPAA compliance is one of the most important aspects of digital transcription. Our digital transcriptionists make HIPAA compliance their top priority to give healthcare organizations the peace of mind they deserve.
