Why Outsource your Medical/Business Transcription?
Government regulations, insurance companies, and consumers are demanding improved
documentation of medical transcription. HIPAA guidelines have precipitated a push
by healthcare providers to move toward a digital health record, not only in hospitals,
but also in the general ambulatory and physician care environments. Handwritten
notes are not meeting these new demands.
Many practices never really consider the total cost of transcription to their practice
when medical transcription is done internally. A good rule of thumb is to multiply
your transcriptionists labor and benefits by 250%. Many businesses fail to consider
the many indirect costs associated with in-house staff, such as:
- 50% Medical Transcription Utilization
- Technical Support
- Equipment Costs and Maintenance
- Equipment Depreciation
- Software Upgrades
- Office Space and Utilities
- Recruiting and Training Costs
However, savings are not the most important criterion. The following factors should
be considered when choosing to outsource: medical transcription costs, quality and
accuracy, turnaround time, and in-house staffing levels. All these factors can be
summarized in one word -VALUE.
