What is Medical Transcription:

In countries like US, Australia etc. as per the government rule it is mandatory that hospitals/Physicians should maintain a complete record of patients’ medical history.

So when a patient visits a hospital or clinic the physician should document details of the patient, reason for visit, details of prescriptions or consultations that he has provided etc.

Rather than doing it by himself physicians can record the details and send it over to companies or people who does this job by charging a certain amount of fee for the service.

There are different ways to send the voice files/recordings; call to a telephone number (usually 1800.. number) and dictate or dictate using a DVR and send the voice file etc.

And the process of transcribing these voice file into documents called Medical Transcription and people who does this job is called Medical Transcriptionist.
