M tec medical transcription
Covid-19 and disability
In 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that there were about 57,400 medical transcriptionists or health care documentation specialists in the United States. Although the Department of Labor predicts a 3% decline between 2016 and 2026, the figures show that the profession is still viable and that demand for medical transcription health care services such as medical tests and procedures will continue to increase.
Despite this, health care companies will continue to pursue cost-cutting steps such as outsourcing medical transcription. As a result, medical transcription, as part of sales cycle management, is thought to be a dying profession. In reality, many people have wondered if it’s still alive.
Let’s begin by analyzing the cost of EHR implementations. Catholic Health, based in Buffalo, New York, is investing more than $100 million in a project to introduce an Epic EHR, according to a recent Becker’s Health IT & CIO Report. The project is expected to take about 18 months to complete.

Now the physician must not only enter all of the keystrokes, but also spend hours learning how to correctly dictate, actually dictate and ensure that the dictated text is accurately recognized by the speech recognition program, deal with excessive EMR alert fatigue, switch between several screens to enter patient data, view several tabs within the screens, and focus on a separate tab within each screen. And they have to do all of this when the patient sits in front of them, while they should be concentrating on the patient and listening to his or her story!
These activities are becoming extremely frustrating for physicians. It’s no surprise, according to a recent report in The Wall Street Journal, that doctors are becoming increasingly disillusioned with their career. Physicians are being burdened with much too much work, and far too much is demanded of them; many of these new responsibilities are more concerned with coding, billing, and enforcement than with patient care. Doctors are untrained in this field, and patients are suffering as a result. We cannot arbitrarily shift the pressure onto doctors under the guise of lowering healthcare costs. According to a 2014 national survey, doctors who use EMRs spend more time on administrative tasks than doctors who use paper records. The Harvard Medical School lecturers write, “While advocates of electronic medical records have long promised a reduction in doctors’ paperwork,” “we find the opposite is true.”

The majority of medical transcriptionists work for hospitals, doctors’ offices, and third-party transcription service providers that offer healthcare transcription services. Others work for themselves.
Postsecondary education is usually required for medical transcriptionists. Medical transcriptionists should be acquainted with medical vocabulary, anatomy and physiology, grammar, and word processing tools.
Medical transcriptionists are expected to lose 2% of their jobs between 2019 and 2029. The rising demand for transcription services is expected to continue due to the increasing amount of healthcare services. However, because of improved efficiency brought on by technological advancements and outsourcing, employment is expected to decline.
Medical transcriptionists, also known as healthcare reporting experts, listen to doctors’ and other healthcare employees’ voice recordings and turn them into written records. They can also review and update medical records that have been developed using speech recognition software. In the preparation of patients’ medical records, discharge summaries, and other documents, transcriptionists interpret medical terms and abbreviations.

The 5th of May was their last day. It seems that they are also discontinuing programs for graduates, which I had assumed would never happen. There is no doubt in my mind that transcription is a sinking ship.
Andrews should discontinue his medical transcription classes. It’s no longer important to teach it to someone. I’m actually saddened that Andrews, a successful school, continues to take money from students to teach them a dying industry.
Do you know what my local high schools and community colleges are beginning to include in their curricula? Courses on gardening and homesteading! It’s awe-inspiringly incredible to see, but it’s real! The times are a-changing.
I should’ve listened to my mentor when she told me to become an in-house MT rather than working from home, which is what I’ve been doing since the beginning of my career. I yearned to return home. And now I’m here. I’m in danger of dying!
Being an in-house employee actually wouldn’t have helped you. The bulk of hospitals outsourced to M and N-type places years ago, and M and N-type places would not have survived if it weren’t for the hospital accounts.
