5 Great Reasons to Become a Medical Transcriptionist

There are many reasons why someone would want to become a Medical Transcriptionist. It is an absolutely critical element of quality health care, as every time a patient is seen by his or her physician notes on that visit are placed in the patient’s medical records. Accurate transcription of the doctor’s dictation is vital in portraying the patient’s medical condition, especially if he or she should be referred to a different physician.Some of the reasons you might consider becoming a transcriptionist are:1. Medical transcription is a critical and honorable profession.It’s been said that the United States is the best place in the world to be if you are sick. One of the reasons for that is that we have quality transcriptionists making sure the details of every doctor’s visit is accurately entered into a patient’s medical records. If we did not have fast, reliable transcriptionists keeping medical records up to date, we would have a great deal of mistakes in health care!2. There is an ongoing need for true professionals.According to the U.S. Government Dept. of Labor, there will be a great need for transcriptionists over other occupations through 2016: “Employment of medical transcriptionists is projected to grow 14 percent from 2006 to 2016, faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for medical transcription services will be spurred by a growing and aging population. Older age groups receive proportionately greater numbers of medical tests, treatments, and procedures that require documentation. The current population of medical transcriptionists is aging and retiring. There are not enough transcriptionists entering the field to keep up with the demand. And guess what? People continue to go to the doctor!3. There is definitely potential to work from home. You could be a telecommuting employee, or an independent contractor.The freedom to have a 30-second commute is a powerful lure, but there is more: you also get to set your own hours, pretty much, when you work at home. Like working at 3AM? That’s cool…Once you have established yourself in the business with several years of experience, there is no end of opportunities out there for you to work at home; some small doctors group in your town is bound to be in need of help, and you’ll find there is probably a fairly large network of independent transcriptionists referring work to each other.4. There is the potential to build your own business with an income limited only by your willingness to work hard.You can be your only employee, or you can have a whole “stable” of transcriptionists adding to your income. Some of the largest transcription firms today began as one-person businesses. The more people you have working for you, the less you have to work at transcribing yourself, as you will be taking part of your employees’ per-line rate for yourself – or rather, part of the rate you charge the client will be skimmed off the top before you pay your employees. The income potential is really limited only by your ability to bring in new clients and keep a stable of reliable transcriptionists working.5. The work is absolutely fascinating on a continual basis.Each report is different from every other, since every patient is different from every other. It’s fascinating to see how two people can have ostensibly the same condition, yet their different physical makeups can cause very different symptoms to appear. Since you would probably be in the field for several years, the chances are fairly great that you would migrate from one specialty area to another over time. Boredom will surely be alleviated if you change specialties, with the new terminology, and the new doctors’ speaking patterns and idiosyncrasies.

    Hey! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does building a well-established website such as yours take a large amount of work? I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!|

  2. You should take part in a contest for one of the finest blogs on the net.
    I’m going to recommend this blog!

    I will immediately grab your rss feed as I can not find your email subscription link or enewsletter service. Do you have any? Kindly let me know so that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  4. Find out what different providers they could present.

  5. Wipe the seats dry with a clear, smooth material.

  6. Awesome! New Orleans is a fun place to visit, especially while you’re waiting for your big news. (Since the publishing world is so slow.) So excited for your new adventures. God IS good.

  7. al ministero mi hanno detto che la cosa è completamente automatica e che il termine di dieci giorni riguarda la trasmissione della documentazione da un ufficio anagrafe all’altro (nel nostro caso da Milano al paesone). E se al paesone mi fanno problemi di mandargli il tutto via fax che ci pensano loro (a cazziare…)

  8. Best. Post. Ever !!!! This is so true and I love that you took the time to write about it. Brides really need to be educated and we keep trying don’t we!! I do a LOT of day-of coordination here and Michigan but some brides just dont want to spend the extra $ because they think their venue coordinator will take care of everything…it is a HUGE myth! thank you !!

  9. Close weaving of writing and perfume has been happening a lot lately. Last year the indies were doing the Clarimonde Project, to go with a story written long ago, and lately, it's been the Devilscent Project (highly successful IMO, on both the writing and perfume sides) to go with the serial novel written by one of our own perfume bloggers, Tarleisio. Seems like an excellent pairing of art forms. I look forward to more. Much better than a scratch-and-sniff-movie!! ;-)

  10. Venga, Ja, a la vista de tus comentarios, no tengo la menor duda de que seguirás tan bien como hasta ahora. Y si podemos ir descubriendo, graciasa ti, bondades de las que produce tu tierra, ya será la caraba.salud!JoanPS. En el kárate, ya no entro, la verdad!

  11. Wilfred en Sharon zegt: 20 maart, 2010 om 21:33 Och wat verschrikelijk voor jullie, dat vreugde en vedriet zo dicht bij elkaar liggen.

  12. That is amazing, if they can really make the projector work and have a decent 720p resolution I am sooo in. I would love to be able to beam a movie or TV show anywhere I go. Imaging beaming something at the airport while you wait. I though Apple would come up with something like this sooner.

  13. Maybe I should read this post again right before I try swimming this summer. Maybe it’ll inspire me to take off the life vest and stop white knuckling it!

  14. TrÃ¥kigt att skörden blev dÃ¥lig, men det kanske är förväntat efter den regniga sommaren! Duktiga du som är ute och promenerar tidigt, lÃ¥ter som en bra start pÃ¥ dagen:) Och sÃ¥ sant, kloka ord som ibland är såååå svÃ¥rt att leva efter…Kraaaaaaaaaaaam aka

  15. Les chocs quand ils sont culturels semblent produire de bien beaux résultats… quelque soit le résultat ent question ! que ce soit tes souvenirs ou ce plat que je découvre chez toi ! décidément je vais commander une deuxième vie pour essayer de découvrir le quart de la moitié des plats du monde… et des histoires qui les accompagnent !

  16. I like my Dell. I only know how to turn it on and use it. I have no bells and whistles…in fact I turn the volume down.The nice thing is now you can test drive one and then decide. That was not an option in the beginning.Hit some stores that let you play, but if you can get livingsimplyfree's son to come over, that would be best.

  17. Some truly great articles on this site, thanks for contribution. “A religious awakening which does not awaken the sleeper to love has roused him in vain.” by Jessamyn West.

  18. León, muchas gracias por la mención. No esperaba verme en esta lista, de hecho, me he enterado por un comentario por twitter.Ya no solo por la mención, te agradezco la entrada porque me ha permitido descubrir traductores que desconocía. ¡Un abrazo!Laeticia

  19. Marco,Piuttosto, non comprendo bene il senso del tuo post: dov'è la bufala?Nessuna bufala. Semplicemente un invito semiserio a non ingigantire una notizia peraltro abbastanza modesta.Il delirio giornalistico scatenato da quest'annuncio è stato decisamente fuori da ogni proporzione. Sembrava fosse morto il Papa. Siamo seri: Jobs è semplicemente il capo di un'azienda di elettrodomestici molto belli, non è il Dalai Lama. Se si dimette, non è che cambia la costante gravitazionale dell'universo.

  20. velmi,velmi prořídlý kouř z cigarety…protestant:Je vidět, že tabákovou problematiku zvládáte lépe než Bibli a teologii.Asi je to tak lepší. Člověk se nemá pouštět do debaty o něčem čemu nerozumí

  21. how could it not be tasty with those ingredients? it is kind of funny to read through the ingredients. it sounds like you were cleaning out your pantry and freezer (lucky us!). can't wait to try it out.

  22. So Buchanan's autobiography ought to be titled "Right from the beginning…of 1992"? Perhaps while chief hatchet man for Dutch he had not yet shrugged off the teaching of his dark master, Richard Milhous Nixon, who kept a lanky Chinese woman tucked away on a houseboat up a remote canal. Only Nixon could go to China…Or maybe Pat failed to realize that there are Catholics and then there are Catholics.

  26. Unfortunately it is far easier and more resonating for a member of congress to spout off intellectualy dishonest rhetoric about the evil oil companies and how much the president is to blame than it is to educate their constituents on the real reasons for high gas prices.It’s disgusting.

  27. Hm..?? Kor lang tid brukte du, sa du..?? Uansett imponert:-) Kjempefint! Lillebror her har òg slik matte, praktisk som bare det, men fin? – tja…

  29. Hey there are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  30. vem morar na venezuela para ficar perto do irmão, ja que no Brasil (suposta casa do velhaco) o povo brasileiro com a ajuda da imprensa livre iria ser movimentar. chupa LUlaiada do inferno. o que dizer agora, e vem mais por ai.

  31. radoc disse:foi essa a ideia.geralmente quando vejo comentários sobre esse tema sempre é de juntar coisas parecidas.Eu quero ver coisas diferentes formando novas mecanicas e novos modos de jogo. Mas fala se nao seria legal um Devil May Rock, mas se fizessem a versão emo seria Rock May Cry.

  32. Ah oui, trop vrai : faut souhaiter bonne fête. Excuse-moi le manque de civisme, c’est que moi mon anniversaire ça me donne envie de déchanter les bonnes fêtes.Considère que je te souhaite bonne fête!

  33. I’d should test with you here. Which is just not a single thing I frequently do! I choose pleasure in studying a submit which will make persons consider. Furthermore, thanks for permitting me to remark!

  34. Emeline Gusmão disse:Ainda tava encarcerado, o coitadinho! Onde estava a defesa?Felizmente esse caso foi resolvido com agilidade e agora o réu, declarado inocente, pode retomar sua vida. Duro será lidar com o preconceito daqueles que ainda duvidam da sua inocência. Será uma mancha que vai perseguir ele por muito tempo. Certamente ele vai receber muito amor e petiscos pra superar isso! =)

  35. we like to honor a lot of other online websites around the net, even when they aren?t linked to us, by linking to them. Under are some webpages really worth checking out

  36. I carry on listening to the news talk about receiving free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the finest site to get one. Could you advise me please, where could i find some?

  37. once me and my best friend who is a girl were just hanging out at her place and she told me she was tense and to give her a massage. I did and she pulled me closer and kissed me. She then un buttoned her shirt and took off her bra and I sucked her boobs. I unzipped my pants and she sucked my dick. We had fun for about an hour. Best night ever!

  38. oh my god, I am JEALOUS of weather warm enough to wear an outfit like that. I'm still in tights and sweaters most of the time. what's up with that?? my favorite part of summer is wearing as little clothing as possible.

  39. Vill bara tipsa om ett Youtube-klipp med Al Jazeera på besök i Malmö, som jag bloggade om .Al Jazeera förordar förstås mångkulturalism samt integration istället för assimilation. Ett sätt att upppnå ett av intolerant islam dominerat samhälle.SD:s partisekteterare(?) Mattias Karlsson är förresten med i klippet.

  40. Hei, vitsi, minäkin tahdon oppia! Kohta istun mitä ilmeisimmin kudontapiirissä taikka katselen youtube-videoita aihetta koskien ;) Tervetuloa blogiin, toivottavasti viihdyt!

  41. ton passé lourd est réglé, c,est une autre histoire, ça implique pas que le nouveau, comme dit MARTIN, devrait faire 14x attentions à tous ce qu’il fait. Si une personne a de la misère dan ses relations à cause de son passé lourd, elle doit corriger ses traumatismes avant d’entammenr quelque chose. À mon avis.

  42. Hi より:

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it|

  43. Hi! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Fantastic blog and wonderful design and style.|

  44. hi より:

    I’ve read several excellent stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting.
    I wonder how much attempt you place to create this type of magnificent informative site.
