Hiring Outsourced Medical Transcribers in the Philippines

Outsourced Medical Transcribers in the Philippines

Outsourced medical transcribers play an essential role in the optimal management of medical practices, healthcare centres, emergency centres and specialist clinics. The growing demand for remote-based medical assistants is being driven by two factors. The first is that insurance providers require digital or typed copies of audio files which are dictated by physicians and other health providers following appointments with their patients.

The second factor is an increase in the elderly population which has led to further growth across the healthcare sector. This has resulted in a greater need for healthcare providers which creates more dictated notes requiring more medical transcribers.

Tasks performed by outsourced medical transcribers

The main role of outsourced medical transcribers is to transcribe all dictated notes or documents created using speech recognition technology into digital copies. These notes are provided by physicians, specialists and other healthcare providers, regarding the care of their practice’s patients.

Remote-based medical transcribers create a comprehensive account of each patient’s visit with their healthcare provider, editing these files as necessary and keeping them up to date. As they create and update these files, they correctly interpret any medical terminology and abbreviations, querying any that are unclear, as well as seeking clarification for any inconsistencies in these notes. As well as updating patient medical files, they transcribe patient discharge summaries and other relevant documents.
