Medical transcription is the manual conversion of voice reports into text, which doctors and other healthcare professionals dictate. Usually, healthcare professionals read out medical documents into voice files and send them to the hospital's transcription team or outsource them to professional transcription companies to obtain a text file from them. The hospital's electronic health record (EHR) or electronic medical record (EMR) system receives these digitally-transcribed medical reports. Hence, we can easily see that medical transcription services have extensive use in medicine.

A Brief History of Medical Transcription's Origin
The history of medical transcription began at the turn of the 20th century. Doctors depended on stenographers at the time because they didn't want to keep their own notes and were able to pretty much shorthand anything. The appearance of typewriters at the turn of the 20th century resulted in an explosion in technological development.
For a while, doctors relied upon typewriters to create clearly readable transcriptions instead of the shorthand technique that offered less readability. This strategy lasted until handheld voice recording devices and word processors became a norm for producing medical transcriptions. Today, more advanced technologies like speech recognition software do audio to text transcription in the medical industry. However, this software is less efficient than human transcriptionists, which we will discuss in detail.
Why Is Medical Transcription So Important?
First, daily transcription medical needs lead to generating readable transcripts, making it much simpler to maintain accurate patient records. Furthermore, as was already mentioned, the law obliges doctors to maintain complete medical records for each patient. Patients can receive appropriate care when they visit other professionals thanks to these records, which provide information about their medical histories and general health.

Moreover, most hospital/acute care facilities now use electronic health records instead of the old-fashioned paper filing system. Additionally, medical transcription makes the process of doing this much simpler. Transcribed text documents can be stored directly in the hospital's server or the cloud computing system. Therefore, all a provider needs to do to generate medical reports is archive them and then print the files when needed. Health insurers need transcription of records for workers' compensation or regular patient care issues to carry out operations optimally.
Why Is Medical Transcription in Such High Demand?
The medical and healthcare industry is a huge business. As you might presume, taking care of hospitalized patients and keeping a record of numerous daily reports can become a hassle. All these vital reports and documents need an accurate speech-to-text conversion from the recorded audio. However, in-house transcribers often fail to maintain the accuracy of spoken words from a recording, usually dictated hurriedly. Doctors often make video to text transcriptions difficult because they lack the time and attention level they need to successfully prepare a medical transcription.

Another aspect worth considering is that medical transcriptionists are frequently held accountable for overlooking doctors' mistakes. While mistakes in speech are understandable, fixing them is a must. After all, doctors and nurses are humans; they get exhausted and are almost always busy.

Given these challenges that medical professionals and in-house transcribers face, hospitals and healthcare providers do well in outsourcing their high-volume transcription needs to a professional medical transcription service like GoTranscript. Our company's certified workforce is always ready to provide medical transcription solutions in the short term and for very accessible fees.

Why AI Speech-Recognition Software and Editing Is Not the Solution (And Why a Professional Medical Transcribing Service Is)
A computer program called speech recognition software (SRS) can turn the words you speak into written text because of artificial intelligence. Although AI is currently quite intelligent, SRS results are still far from ideal. Automated tools are unable to edit or proofread transcripts. When particular accents are present, they can also become a little erratic.

Therefore, even the best speech recognition software typically has less than 90% accuracy. For this reason, the efficiency of human transcriptionists won't be getting a replacement anytime soon. Unlike automated tools, a medical transcriptionist receives specialized training and has an extensive understanding of healthcare terminology.

Speech-recognition software is now widely used by hospitals and transcription companies. This software can take a healthcare professional's recording and convert it into a written report in a few seconds. But this comes at a cost. These reports often are error prone and useless.

At GoTranscript, we've always believed that the most effective way to transcribe any recording is with a human touch. Despite the fact that proofreaders hired for voice recognition editing can fix silly or embarrassing errors made by the software, they might not always listen to the original recording to verify the data. A trained medical transcriptionist is much more likely to find crucial errors when they listen to an audio file.
