Why Use Medical Transcription 'with' Electronic Medical Records Software
When EMR was first developed, it was assumed that these systems would replace certain jobs within the medical office. One of those jobs was that of the transcriptionist. However, as time has gone on, more and more physicians have realized the need to continue dictating their notes, rather than use the "point and click" system that most EMR's come equipped with. The result is that transcription has maintained its importance within the medical field, resulting in most practitioners finding a way to make the two work together.
