Choosing the right firm for radiology transcription service

  1. 1. 1-800-670-2809 Choosing the Right Firm for Radiology Transcription Service As a busy radiologist, your primary objective is to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of various types of diseases. Interpreting the results of MRI, computed tomography (CT Scans), and ultrasound would take up a lot of your time, leaving you with little to spare for your documentation. Outsourcing can provide the solution, but choosing the right firm for radiology transcription service can be quite challenging. You have to choose one medical transcription company from the hundreds out there. This article tells you about some important factors that you should consider to make the right choice. Factors to Consider When Selecting a Right Transcription Firm  Accuracy: Radiological exams are crucial in the medical evaluation of a patient. It is the radiologist who interprets these exams. Your reports must be transcribed to the highest level of quality and standards. So choose a medical transcription service provider that can provide you with professional, error-free radiology transcripts.  Providing Transcripts without Delay: When it comes to radiology transcription: speed is of utmost importance. Timely transcripts can ensure quick diagnosis and treatment. Your medical transcription service provider must be able to provide your radiology transcripts quickly - without compromising on quality and accuracy.  Transcription directly into Radiology Information Systems (RIS): Radiology Information Systems allow management, clinicians and staff to maintain patient records, manage schedules, carry out billing activities, enter and retrieve exam data and view medical images.

A reliable medical transcription company would offer customized services for every specialist. A reliable firm would offer a choice of dictation options such as toll-free telephone and digital recorder for the radiologist to choose from. Moreover, a professional service provider would offer a team of skilled and experienced transcriptionists in- depth knowledge of radiology-specific terminology and jargon on each client project. This will also help to ensure client-specific solutions.  HIPAA Compliance: Look for a HIPAA compliant medical transcription company. This will ensure the security and confidentiality of patient information. Reliable companies have encrypted modes of file transfer such as browser based file transfer with 256 bit AES encryption and secure FTP to ensure this. With staff trained on HIPAA compliance, a secure work environment and password-protected computers, you will not have to worry about compromising on the safety of your medical documents with the right service provider.  Solutions to Stay within Your Budget : The right transcription service provider would make it worthwhile for you to outsource by providing you with solutions that stay within your budget. There are medical transcription companies that can offer you documentation services at competitive rates that can save as much as 30 to 40% on your operational costs. Finding the Right Medical Transcription Firm Doing some serious online research on medical transcription companies can help you choose the right firm for radiology transcription service. Shortlist a few service providers and visit their official websites to understand the nature of their services. Read reviews, comments and feedback. If a free trial is offered, go for it as this is the best way to see if a provider can meet your needs.
