Medical Transcription Searching for New Name

As the technology used by medical transcriptionists changes, so too does the type of work throughout the profession.  Because of this, many medical transcriptionists argue that the term “medical transcription” is outdated and no longer represents the constantly evolving types of work in the industry.  

Due of the broad nature of the field and emerging technologies, the U.S. Department of Labor has asked the medical transcription industry to come up with a new title for the profession.
