What Do Medical Transcriptionists Do?
Medical transcriptionists specialize in listening to audio recordings and converting them into written language that can be easily understood by other professionals who need access to the information contained within them.
They often work alongside doctors and nurses in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, recording patient interviews or other conversations related to their care plan.
In addition to listening to recordings of medical professionals’ voices, many medical transcriptionists also make notes regarding any important information they hear during dictation sessions so they can make sure it ends up accurately recorded in documents.
Medical transcriptionists also ensure that their work meets legal and professional standards.
