How will the President’s push for EMR Affect the Medical Transcription Industry?

The new health information technology initiatives will require medical transcription services to take the lead when it comes to accuracy in medical records documentation. In a paper-based environment, an error in a medical record remains isolated in that specific chart. However, in an EMR (electronic medical record) record environment, where one document is potentially viewed by multiple practitioners, it is critical to ensure the utmost accuracy of the information in the EMR. EZScribe Medical Transcription Service is a medical transcription company that delivers the most accurate medical records to its clients, by using the most highly skilled medical transcriptionists in the industry. Over the last 20 years, medical transcriptionists have had to adapt to technology as it evolves, from the typewriter, to the word processor, to the personal computer, and now to the EMR environment. EZScribe Medical Transcription Services remains committed to ensuring that their transcriptionists keep abreast of new technologies, and we stand ready to help our clients with the transition from a paper-based environment to the EMR environment.

Improving Quality in the Transcribed Document

As all medical transcriptionists and medical transcription companies know, quality medical records start with quality dictation. A medical document’s quality can be hindered by poor dictation habits, distractions to the dictator or by the environment where the dictation is performed. Dictations with blanks in the reports need to be screened through a Quality Assurance program that utilizes the best professionals in the transcription industry. EZ Scribe Medical Transcription’s QA process assures the client that the best possible final document is delivered to the patient’s medical record. Even with poor dictation quality, or incomplete dictation, EZ Scribe Medical Transcription will utilize all of its available resources to return to the client the most complete and accurate document possible.

EZ Scribe knows that a doctor’s time is very valuable, and they must dictate where and when it is most convenient for them. EZ Scribe works with our clients by giving them feedback as to dictation quality, background noise, etc., to try to eliminate the frustration of blanks in reports or reports that are cut off or incomplete. Working together to improve the dictation process helps EZ Scribe Medical Transcription and its clients achieve the most accurate and professional documents possible.

Defining Medical Transcription

The job of a medical transcriptionist is to listen to dictated recordings by physicians and other healthcare professionals and transcribe them into medical reports, correspondence, or the patient’s electronic medical record. A medical transcriptionist may work on site for a physician or hospital, through a medical transcription service, or directly for her or himself in a home-based office. After transcription, the medical transcriptionist or the medical transcription service returns the completed documents to the client who in turn reviews, corrects and signs the report. These transcribed documents are then placed in the patients’ permanent medical record.
EZ Scribe Medical Transcription Service uses a vast pool of highly skilled medical transcriptionists to accurately transcribe dictated reports. EZ Scribe’s medical transcriptionists must have at least five years experience in medical transcription and must understand medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, diagnostic procedures, pharmacology, and treatment assessments. EZ Scribe’s transcriptionists must be able to use critical thinking skills to identify discrepancies in dictation, for example, incorrect usage of terms, incorrect medication dosing or incorrect laboratory values. EZ Scribe Medical Transcription trains its transcriptionists to spot mistakes or inconsistencies in a medical report and check to be sure each report contains the correct information.
EZ Scribe Medical Transcription Service prides itself on using the best MT professionals in the industry in order to deliver to its clients consistently accurate and timely reports. For more information, please visit us at: www.ezscribemedicaltranscriptionservice.com

How is Accuracy Best Achieved from your Medical Transcription Service?

EZ Scribe Medical Transcription provides its clients with a high quality transcription service, and accuracy is our top priority.

Every medical transcription service should strive to ensure that every document is 100% accurate prior to delivery to their client. The AAMT recommends that medical transcription companies set a goal for their transcriptionists of at least 98% accuracy with respect to all errors, at least 98% accuracy with respect to major errors,
and 100% accuracy with respect to critical errors. However, any medical transcription service that is consistently delivering timely documents to their clients understands that these targets are the industry standard and that some flexibility should be incorporated into the process. Some allowance are made in situations where the dictation is of poor quality, and the medical transcription service may not be able to provide a completely accurate final report, and that report will ultimately require completion by the client. A good medical transcription company also understands the tradeoff between speed and accuracy. If the medical transcription service sets standards of productivity for the transcriptionists that are unreasonable, then the accuracy of the final transcribed report will suffer.

The best program for any medical transcription company to employ is a program of constant feedback to their MTs, along with continuing education. It is just not enough to correct the final reports, if the transcriptionists are not educated, they will continually make the same mistakes over and over again.

A medical transcription company’s attention to quality should always include a commitment to the ongoing professional development and continuing education of the medical transcriptionist as a means of ensuring that the client receives the best possible accuracy from your medical transcription service.

At EZ Scribe Medical Transcription Services, we employ the above policies. Our QA department provides the transcriptionists with daily feedback. New drugs, etc., are communicated to our transcription via a monthly memo. By providing our transcriptionists with this feedback, we thereby ensure that EZ Scribe provides its clients with a top quality medical transcription service.

EZ SCRIBE DICTATION TIPS FOR DOCTORS

Medical records are legal documents and information contained in them is often used by other doctors the patient is subsequently referred to for ongoing treatment. Medications are often prescribed or refilled based on the information contained in medical records. It is therefore of utmost importance that the medical record is as accurate as possible. Oftentimes the sound quality of a dictated report is very poor and the transcriptionist cannot hear properly. This poor sound quality can be avoided most of the time.

The following are some guidelines to ensure the best dictation quality ensuring that you, in turn, will receive the most accurate medical transcription from your medical transcription service.


EZ SCRIBE DICTATION GUIDELINES:

CELL PHONES: EZ Scribe does not recommend using cell phones for dictations. Often times, especially if you are moving about or in a car, the signal may vary and the sound may fade in and out or be dropped completely. If there is no other phone available, please ensure you have a good signal on your phone and please remain stationary while you are dictating.

SPEAKERS: EZ Scribe does not recommend you put your phone on speaker – EVER. All background noise is picked up and it is very hard to transcribe with background noise sometimes competing with the dictator!!!

PATIENT DEMOGRAPHICS: It is important to spell the patient’s name – first and last. Even simple names such as “Cathleen” or “Steven” could have alternate spellings such as “Kathleen” or “Stephen” and since this is a legal document, we want to be sure the name is 100% correct.

SPELLING OUT TERMS: There is no need to spell common medical terms/drugs. EZ Scribe's transcriptionists are professionals and are familiar with all medical terms/drugs. However, if the patient is on a brand new drug and/or an experimental protocol, spelling the drug is very helpful. Additionally, it is useful to spell names of doctors not normally associated with your facility, and places and/or medical centers which are not in the local area.

SPEAK CLEARLY AND SELECT A QUIET AREA TO DICTATE: This seems obvious, but sometimes the dictator is unaware of how much background noise is picked up and “mixed in” with the dictation – thereby making it unclear. Eating, drinking, rustling papers, background noises (phones ringing, other people talking in the room) all affect the quality of the dictation. If you are interrupted or need to look through papers whilst you are dictating – please utilize the “pause” feature while you are doing so.

The bottom line is - high quality dictation translates into high quality reports, and conversely a poor quality dictation could result in a report with multiple blanks and potential inaccuracy.

Using a high quality transcription company such as EZ Scribe Medical Transcription Service (
http://www.ezscribemedicaltranscriptionservice.com ), and practicing good dictation habits will ensure you receive high quality, accurate reports.
