Today’s healthcare system is complex and ever evolving. As we move to meet the standards and requirements of the Affordable Care Act healthcare facilities are looking towards solutions that will keep them here for generations to come. The challenges are many as healthcare moves from a paper based environment (the way it used to be) to deploying innovative technology that captures the patient narrative (the way it needs to be).
Never before has innovation in healthcare delivery been more critical. Investments in innovative solutions are accelerating because the benefits for your patients and your organization are truly compelling. These new and innovative technologies not only offer an effective way to collect, store and distribute vital clinical information, but also improves interactions with patients, optimizes clinician training, boosts diagnostic accuracy and provides fast access to current patient information. Technology actually helps healthcare organizations turn stringent regulatory compliance requirements and competitive pressures to their advantage; allowing them to focus on and improve their practices’ patient care.
Providing medical attention and subsequent follow-up treatments to the community is by no means an easy task and is profoundly time consuming. In addition to this, each patient’s files and records have to be maintained with precision. As a result, most healthcare entities depend upon outsourcing medical transcription services to transcribe and maintain records.
Some advantages of outsourcing medical transcription services are:
- HIPAA compliant services
- Guaranteed quality and turnaround time of transcribed reports
- Reduced transcription rates
- Reduced cost in HR, administrative and training areas
- Automated document delivery i.e. printer, fax, HL7,or customized interface
- 24 X 7 technical assistance and customer support
Technology has advanced to the point of making most processes involved in medical transcription automated, and thus taking little time to complete. The procedures from dictation capture, voice file upload and transfer, records management, and reports retrieval can be managed in one system. Some exceptional features of automated transcription are:
- Online editing of documents
- Single click function – approve, sign, and save documents
- Automatic voice file transfer
- Automatic retrieval of transcribed files
- EMR for electronic data management
This state-of-the-art technology helps to reduce turnaround time. In fact businesses receive their reports on schedule, with no delay. Additionally, there is no concession on quality, as these medical transcription services follow HIPAA guidelines.
