With so many medical transcription providers in operation today both here and abroad, many feel that choosing which one to work with is a challenging task. Fortunately, zeroing in on healthcare transcription industry leaders can be done conveniently with the aid of the World Wide Web. Just like any other service, a personal referral can help you find reliable healthcare transcription companies. If you did not get strong personal referrals, here are a few things to keep in mind when picking out which medical transcription firm to outsource.
To begin with, it would be a wise decision to outsource a company that has been around for a long time. Even though young companies have cheaper rates, they are often not the best option for hospitals and practices. You should also check if the company is legitimate by determining if they have the necessary licenses. It would be also good to check if there are any pending complaints against them. The Better Business Bureau and other consumer protection agencies can provide you with such information if there are any.

It is wise to compare around three to five transcription firms so you can find the one that can meet your needs at a reasonable fee. Keep in mind that reliable firms will charge per line. If they charge you per minute or per page, look for another provider. You should also ascertain how soon they can return reports. Industry-leading healthcare transcription services provider can return reports in less than twenty-four hours. If you have stat reports, a good company can send back the report in a couple of hours. Still, you would want a speedy service that does not affect the quality and accuracy of the output.
In such light, you should ask the frequency of auditing procedures and who performs the proofreading. Some companies provide you with the device and the health diction software so you can make recordings easily and conveniently. However, the accuracy of this health diction software can vary among providers. That said, it would be wise to read consumer opinion about the firms' speech recognition platform.
The World Wide Web is an excellent resource for this information. Ask for a copy of their client services agreement. Note for any fine print that can affect your business or practice. Most reputable transcription companies do not lock you into their service for a period of time. Transcript Page 3
