Medical transcription, also known as MT, is an allied health profession which deals in the process of transcribing or converting recorded dictations by physicians and/or other healthcare professionals regarding patient medical record to a written text. This written text may be stored as printed and/or electronic data. The electronic storage of medical records are the preferred means of most medical professionals in order to document patient care and facilitate healthcare delivery regardless of geographical distance. Medical transcription establishes document format, data entry, corrects spelling and medical terminology errors, transcribe/edit documents, and complies with medical-legal policies and procedures. Source: An individual who performs medical transcription is known as a medical transcriptionist, or less frequently and incorrectly, a medical transcriber. A medical transcriptionist is the one responsible for documenting patient medical records. The term medical transcriber may also refer to an electronic equipment used to perform medical transcription. There are no formal educational requirements for MTs. Education in medical transcription may be obtained through traditional schooling, certificate or diploma programs, distance learning, and/or on-the-job training. But some countries require 18 months to 2 years of specialized MT training. An MT profession requires mastery in medical terminology, adroitness in editing, and the ability to type while listening.
