National Medical Transcriptionist Week

May 20-26, 2012 – Working Together for Patient Safety

Our medical transcriptionists add value to Rideout Health Group through accurate, secure capture of healthcare encounters every day.

Using transcribed medical reports, each physician can easily and quickly review a patient’s medical history even if the physician has never seen that patient before. Because of the work done by trained medical transcriptionists, patients can be assured that the history of their medical care is portrayed accurately and legibly.

What a Medical Transcriptionist Does:

A medical transcriptionist is a skilled typist, excellent at interpreting what they read or hear, and a good grammarian.

They must possess knowledge of advanced medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, and understand disease processes. They must be able to take what they hear and edit it, transform it, or make it logical without changing relevant details or medical information.

The 23 transcriptionists who process FRHG patient record have a combined 457 years of experience! They are transcribing admit and consult reports, x-rays, operative summaries, discharge summaries, progress notes, cancer center reports, urgent care/comp care reports, EEGs, cardiology reports, and pathology dictation just to name a few.

Transcriptionists are just a phone call away for doctors and hospital staff to receive requests for stat dictation to help maintain excellent turn-around times.

We would like to thank our medical transcriptionists that serve the Rideout Health Group for their loyalty and dedication to our organization. They may be behind the scenes, but are continually providing excellent care, close to home.
