Transcription is an important part of healthcare communication. It includes physician notes that add context and details to a patient’s file. With the right transcription service, all those thoughts, opinions, and observations become part of the official medical record. Transcription services are necessary, but can also be costly. However, high-quality transcription that adheres to a budget is certainly possible. Working together with fellow community hospitals, TPC Members developed a transcription services program that standardized approach, reduced cost, and improved turnaround time.
