Career Outlook

The demand for skilled medical transcriptionists continues to hold strong. With an aging population needing more and more medical tests, treatments, and procedures that require documentation, there is a growing need for professionals who can amend patients’ records, edit documents from speech recognition systems, and identify discrepancies in medical reports. Transcription services are also sought out due to the continued need for electronic documentation that can be shared easily among providers, third-party payers, regulators, consumers, and health information systems. Medical transcriptionists often work independently, setting their own hours and transcribing reports from home. Trained transcriptionists are employed in doctors’ and dentists’ offices, imaging departments, hospitals, community clinics and emergency facilities.
