Medical transcription is a vital part of clinical documentation, governance and compliance processes. But healthcare organizations have traditionally handled this chore either by hiring transcribers—which is costly and carries the risk of input mistakes—or relying on the practitioners to handle the time-consuming transcriptions. As a result, practitioners have often expressed concern with the amount of time it takes away from taking care of their patients, particularly for doctors with less technical sophistication who may need extra time to deal with typing on a computer and entering data into electronic health records.

Fortunately, there are sophisticated, powerful and use-to-easy tools that are achieving the twin goals of ensuring timely, comprehensive and accurate medical transcription while also reducing the amount of time practitioners need to devote to the process. Watch this video to learn how a new tool is unshackling doctors from the manual process of traditional computer-based clinical documentation input, and is allowing them to use their smartphones as dictation devices in order to instantly and accurately transcribe into electronic health records.
