Why Medical Transcription Outsourcing Is Better Than Doing It In-house

  1. 1. http://www.medicaltranscriptionservicecompany.com 1-800-670-2809 Why Medical Transcription Outsourcing Is Better Than Doing It In-house Physicians, clinics and hospitals have two options to get their medical transcription tasks done – either do it in-house or outsource it to an experienced service provider. Medical outsourcing, transcription rather than inhouse transcription, is the more preferred option. Let us look at the reasons why outsourcing is more advantageous. Outsourced Medical Transcription Services vs. In-house Transcription  Cost-effective: The main advantage of outsourcing is that the services are provided at a lower cost. Reputable companies can help their clients save 30%-40% on transcription costs. Usually, there are no hidden costs if the company is a reliable one. Maintaining an in-

Such companies offer customized turnaround times anywhere from 24 hours or less. Same is not the case with in-house services. A professional transcriptionist would have a better typing speed than healthcare professionals or their office staffs. So an in-house team may not be able to guarantee a quick turnaround as there are other responsibilities to deal with.  Reduced management headache: The main focus of any medical facility would be to provide better patient care and build up reputation. By doing transcription in-house, valuable time will have to be spent on tedious documentation tasks. When outsourcing these tasks, the service provider will handle the back office tasks, providing more time for your staff to focus on core activities.
  3. 3. http://www.medicaltranscriptionservicecompany.com 1-800-670-2809  Accurate transcripts: Reliable companies assign well-trained, professional transcriptionists who can provide error-free reports. The files are subjected to three levels of quality checks by the expert QA team. Considering in-house transcription, existing staff in the hospital is assigned these tasks. As they are not professionals, chances are more for errors to occur in the transcribed documents.  24/7 services: Established service providers will have transcribers working round-the-clock, even on holidays and weekends. When doing inhouse, your transcription work may suffer when your transcriptionist goes on an unscheduled leave or vacation.  Regular updates: With in-house transcription, your staff should be regularly updated regarding HIPAA guidelines and the latest technology developments and time should be allotted for further training programs. With outsourcing, service providers usually keep their transcriptionists updated with the changing HIPAA policies and other developments in the field of medical transcription.
