What is the best medical transcription service?
Updated: May 27, 2021
Many medical professionals and doctors using medical transcription services do not have a redundant dictation system. This is a very risky approach to take. If their in-house typist becomes i'll or leaves at short notice then this will impact the entire medical practice. Other medical professionals use cloud based voice recognition or transcription services. A few years ago, of the largest international transcription services went down for almost two weeks. This left hundreds and hundreds of Doctors Without transcription services in Australia. Some medical centers were completely left without any transcription capability and with no backup they were losing money and patience quickly. So whether you're running dragon medical voice recognition software, a cloud-based service or in-house transcription you need to look at some backup options.
So what's the most cost-effective backup medical transcription dictation system?
Well you've got to consider cost effectiveness versus accuracy and reliability. The cheaper system is not going to be the best.
For example, a doctor could use Google android voice recognition or Apple Siri to dictate basic notes into their phone and email them through to staff in an emergency. The problem with this system is that neither of these voice recognition systems are hosted in Australia so doctors are breaching their compliance obligations to the Australian Government. Also Google voice and Apple Siri do not contain specialised medical terminology. This makes them quite inaccurate and errors in medical dictation can be very dangerous.
And what if the staff member you are emailing with these emergency notes are sick or on leave? Then who is going to actually check the letters and upload it to your medical records software?
The bottom line is the doctor needs to take direct and complete control of their dictation in one single action. Medical professionals need very high accuracy, accessibility and ease of use.
