As we all know, technology has advanced to the point where medical transcriptionists enter into the field of remotely working on files in electronic records. Because of this, and the need for doctors to decrease their in-house costs, many transcriptionists now work from home, either for a private transcription company or for the doctor’s themselves. This of course changes the transcriptionist to more likely being self-employed and in turn allows them to operate like a business rather than an employee. The result — there are less in-house transcriptionist and more remote transcriptionists, which makes this field even more appealing to people who need flexibility to be at home for various reasons.
