Adoption of Speech Recognition Technology

Medical professionals are relying on speech recognition technology to enhance the productivity of medical transcription services. The software assists medical transcriptionist by reducing the turnaround times and converting the audio script through an automated voice-to-text conversion process. Companies such as Nuance, MModal, and iMedX are already using this technology as it can cut down the transcription cost and operational time significantly.

Adoption of Cloud-Based Medical Transcription Service

The use of cloud-based medical transcription services helps service provider to securely transmit medical data and edit the transcribed report as per their convenience. Additionally, cloud technology can easily be scaled up or down depending on business needs and can be easily integrated to EHR or EMR. Many service providers are adopting this technology as they don’t necessarily require making substantial spending on infrastructure.

Use of Mobile Apps to Record Voice Data

Instead of looking for an extra device for voice recording, service providers prefer mobile apps to dictate voice data. All doctors and medical professional have to do is to turn on the app and start recording without having to carry extra recording device even in emergency situations. Such mobile applications offer a range of feature including automated audio file transfers, provision for e-signature, offline dictation, EHR compatibility, and preset templates.

Emerging Markets in Eastern Europe and South America

In recent times, the global market has seen a strong supply shift as service providers are investing in setting up operational facilities in South America and Eastern Europe. The reason behind the rising investments is because medical transcription service providers in the region are offering their services at a competitive rate compared to that in North America due to wage differences. It is urging the buyers in the US and Canada to opt for service providers from that region as turn-around times are quicker due to time differences between the region and availability of English speakers minimizing the error rate. Additionally, it also reduces the procurement costs for the buyers.
