As we predicted, more physicians are returned to medical transcription after trying Dragon and other voice recognition software. Those who type themselves also find it overwhelming and inefficient to input their own records when they could be seeing more patients. Therefore, there is an increase in hiring transcriptionists, both outsourcing and in-house. The bottom line is that you cannot replace the human element of correct transcription. What a great time to enter into the field, as the field is increasing in numbers and demand. Mary Park-Youhanaie, owner, Med Trans, Inc. and Park-Youhanaie Enterprises, Inc.
