As members of the Medical Transcription Industry Association (MTIA), PRN Funding recently received a mailing explaining that dictation and medical transcription is still the most preferred, effective method for documenting healthcare encounters. MTIA listed a handful of other reasons:
- At least 1.2 billion clinical records are produced in the United States each year.
- 60% of all clinical notes are documented via traditional dictation and transcription.
- No documentation method captures complex patient stories better than narrative dictation.
- Transcriptionists/editors ensure accuracy of clicnical information and support physicians in risk management.
