KLAS Reports Decline in Offshore Medical Transcription Usage

Healthcare Informatics posted a brief article in regards to a new Orem, Utah-based KLAS Medical Transcription Services Organizations (MTSO) report.  The data from the report shows a decline in MTSOs using offshore medical transcription services.

38% of the 400 MTSOs surveyed said they used offshore transcription services in 2007, and this year, the number has dropped 3 points to 35%.

KLAS also reported that “quality, turnaround time and cost continue to be the main drivers for engagements in this market segment…Adding that healthcare providers are faced with growing dictation volumes, a shrinking transcription labor force, and rising costs due to the influx of new technologies being introduced to hospitals.”
