Medical transcriptionists work behind the scenes. Most of us don’t see them or use the product of their work, but they are incredibly important to the health care industry. There are about 60,000 transcriptionists in the nation. They spend their days listening to recordings by doctors and other health care workers and converting them into written reports. Often they edit medical documents and convert medical terminology and abbreviations into more complete written documentation.
Join us in celebrating them and their work this week during National Medical Transcriptionist Week. Thank you!
