4 reasons why outsourcing your transcription services is essential to your practice

Hiring a trusted partner to outsource your transcription services can help you reduce provider burnout, improve patient satisfaction, save time and money, and improve quality.

The days of physicians and other medical professionals are filled with patients, research, and paperwork, with little to no time to take a break. On every patient encounter, they must take extremely detailed notes to diagnose the patient properly.

These notes are extensive and time-consuming. The physician must pay close attention to detailed notetaking while also paying attention to the patients during the time of the visit.

Outsourcing your transcription services can allow you to free up physicians from this administrative burden. Allowing a trusted partner to take care of this task will give back time to your physicians so they can focus on what matters most: patients.

Here are some reasons why you should consider outsourcing your transcription services:

1. Reduce provider burnout

Providers should be able to focus their efforts on what matters most: patients. Providing them with transcription services can help them focus on clinical tasks while reducing their administrative burden. This way, they can have more time to spend with their patients and families.

2. Improve patient satisfaction

Patients want to be heard. They want their physician to pay attention to their needs and how they´re feeling. Having a physician taking notes behind a computer or other device could jeopardize the patient-physician relationship.

Virtual scribes will listen to what the patient and the physician discuss without actually being in the room. This transcription mode can help boost the patient´s confidence while allowing the physician to pay undivided attention to the patient during the conversation.

3. Save time & money

Providers are always lacking time. Giving time back to your physicians and medical professionals will allow them to focus on their medical duties, relieving their administrative burden and creating a more efficient work environment.

Also, with the time saved from documentation, providers often have room in their schedule for additional patients. This will help you increase revenue and enhance your cashflow. Read more about this on our blog One More Patient per Day & the Benefits for your Medical Practice.

4. Improve quality

Hiring a medical transcription service will allow you to have an experienced team that would be 100% focused on taking notes and capturing key details.

This will allow you to have accurate data entry for quality measures and a consistent Electronic Health Record (EHR). Transcriptionists will create records that are clear and easy to understand, no matter what member of your team is reading them.
