What is Medical Transcription (MT)?

Medical transcription (MT) is the process of converting voice-recorded medical reports dictated by physicians and other healthcare professionals into written text. This transcription process makes sure that patient records are documented and maintained for future reference, treatment planning, legal purposes, local regulatory requirements, and more.

How Medical Transcription Works

1. Receiving Voice Files

Sometimes a hospital or healthcare center has a dedicated medical transcription team or a hospital chooses to work with a medical transcription company. These professionals receive voice recordings containing dictations of medical documents from healthcare providers. These recordings can include patient histories, physical examination reports, operative reports, discharge summaries, and other clinical notes.

2. Transcribing Voice Files

Medical transcriptionists listen to the voice recordings and transcribe them into text format manually (or you can use a more automated process). Either way, this process requires a basic understanding of medical terminology, anatomy, and procedures in order to create an accurate transcript.

3. Digital Formatting

The transcribed medical reports are usually created in a digital format. This enables easy integration and submission into the hospital's Electronic Health Record (EHR) or Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems, making the information accessible to healthcare providers.

Modern Tools in Medical Transcription

During the last years, digital tools have improved the efficiency and accuracy of medical transcription:

Speech Recognition Software

Speech recognition software, or online voice to text platforms, are being used to automatically convert spoken words into text. While this technology can speed up the transcription process, it still requires human oversight to correct errors and ensure the accuracy of medical documentation.

Medical Transcription Software (MTS)

Specialized medical transcription software offers features like voice file management, text editing, and integration with EHR/EMR systems. These tools help transcriptionists work more efficiently and maintain high standards of accuracy, but still require a lot of manual tasks.

  • What is the difference between automatic transcription software and human transcription services?

    The main difference between these two services relies on the accuracy of the transcription. Our human transcription service has an accuracy of 99%, and your files will be proofread by an expert transcriber.

    The price of the service depends on the language and length of your files. The price for English human transcription starts at 2.00 per minute of audio.

  • Literally a lifesaver
    Literally a lifesaver. Had to transcribe an interview which was 40 minutes and they were able to do it within less than 5 minutes. Would have taken me about 5 days to do manually.
