Medical transcription can be defined as a process of listening to a dictation, formatting it properly, editing it as needed, and converting it into a medical record.
A medical transcriptionist converts the spoken word to the written word, thereby creating patient medical records. Every time a patient is admitted to a hospital, or is seen in an emergency room, or has an x-ray, anytime there is a patient interaction with a medical professional, a report is generated. Hundreds of thousands of such reports are dictated every single day.The medical transcriptionist is the key person who transforms those reports from the dictated form to the written form, to be produced as a hard copy or sent to storage in a computer system.Medical transcriptionist listen to dictated recordings made by physician and transcribe them into medical reports, correspondence and other administrative material. They generally listen to recordings on a headphone, using a foot pedal to pause the recording when necessary, and key the text into a computer or word processor, editing as necessary for grammar and clarity.
