5 Definite Reasons To Integrate Transcription With EMR System

Medical transcription business has reached a new milestone with the integration of eMR. In this article; we look at different reasons to integrate transcription services with eMR system.

With the emergence of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system; there was a big question mark over the medical transcription industry. But with the synchronization of both these processes medical practitioners have been able to save lot of time, increase productivity and get accurate documentation in a timely manner. Let us now look at some of the reasons to integrate transcription with eMR system:

  • Quick and efficient output: Medical practitioners are usually busy in their clinics/practices so they do not have time to type patient’s notes into eMR system. Hence; dictation systems helps medical practitioners in saving time and directly integrates the transcribed document in eMR system. This enables the doctors to keep up the pace with their productivity rate.
  • Synchronization with eMRs: eMRs have significantly reduced the workload of medical transcriptionists. With the help of the software the transcribed documents can be directly inserted in the eMR of the respective medical practitioner by using Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT). eMRs are meeting the “meaningful use” requirements, and a complete and accurate patient visit record is being recorded.
  • Generates profit: It becomes quite cumbersome for the medical practitioners to stop typing into eMR during each patient visit. This results in reduced patients which ultimately reduces the profit. Using a lucrative dictation system, medical practitioners can continue to see more patients thereby increasing the profits.
  • Decreases data-entry costs: Medical practitioners cannot be used for data-entry tasks. They are too good of a resource to be wasted on data-entry tasks. If you hire an in-house medical transcriptionist you need to pay salary and benefits. Voice recognition systems are too costly and show a higher error rate than a human transcriptionist.
  • Accuracy of information: If the medical practitioners type their own notes it can lead to higher error rate. Usually they have to shift from one appointment to another which can affect the accuracy of the notes. Also there are times when medical practitioners use copy-paste or copy-forward function on eMR which results in inaccurate information being stored on patient’s record.

With the amalgamation of eMR with Medical Transcription business it becomes very easy for Medical Practitioners to conduct their day-to-day activities. A global medical transcription company exploits the services of eMR in an expertise manner; and gets the transcribed documents done in a quick time.

MTIAPI and MTIA Forged Medical Transcription Accord

The Medical Transcription Industry Association of the Philippines, Inc. (MTIAPI) has forged an agreement with the US-based Medical Transcription Industry Association (MTIA) to protect the interest of the industry.

MTIAPI president Myla Rose Mundo-Reyes, who attended the Building a Viable and Sustainable Relationship with Offshore MT Service Organizations by the Medical Transcription Industry Association (MTIA) conference held recently in Long Beach, California reported.

“I was actually glad that the participants’ concerns on quality, data privacy, public holidays and government support in policy making were openly raised because I was given the opportunity to inform them that the Philippines is addressing exactly the same issues that really matter to our clients,” Reyes said.

Reyes reported that MTIAPI and MTIA agreed to forge a partnership to protect the interests of the industry and its players. Some of the highlighted areas of cooperation were policy enforcement on data privacy protection, intellectual property rights protection of their MT curricula, certification of MT workers and training facility accreditation, a company verification process, and some business matching activities for MTIA’s US Medical Transcription Service

Organizations (MTSO) members looking for offshore partners.

Colin Christie, CEO of MXSecure and MTIAPI director who joined the meeting viewed the meeting as a great step towards future cooperation.

“The well-attended panel discussion has torn down barriers to the Philippines’ emergence as the outsourcing and offshoring destination of choice and presented the country as having viable solutions for US MT companies looking for a virtual extension office so as to expand their businesses.

Reyes, who is also the managing director of Total Transcription Solutions, Inc., explained that the panel discussion corrected some of the participants’ negative perceptions about offshoring and informed them of where to go, who to talk to, and what to consider if they want to explore outsourcing to other countries.

“I was actually glad that the participants’ concerns on quality, data privacy, public holidays and government support in policy making were openly raised because I was given the opportunity to inform them that the Philippines is addressing exactly the same issues that really matter to our clients,” she added.

Another MTIAPI delegate and marketing manager of IQ West, Sammy Pe, said that as a result of the panel discussion, he was able to get a number of leads at the convention.

MTIAPI director and Transkripsyo chief executive officer Michael Chua said, “It was a very good mission. I believe the delegation presented the Philippine value proposition very well. We are looking forward to having more US companies taking a second look at the Philippines for their outsourced transcription needs.”

Reyes added, “The challenge now is for our local stakeholders—the private sector and the government—to ensure that the right components are in place when the investors begin pouring in.”(BCM)
