Medical Transcription Industry Association (MTIA)
Because they perform a necessary function, medical transcriptionists are always in demand. And with its low overhead — you’ll need a computer, Internet access, a printer, headphones, medical dictionaries, and a foot pedal and software for audio playback — this business is easy to start.
Medical transcriptionists listen to audio recordings of medical records, such as doctors’ notes, X-ray reports, and discharge summaries, and transcribe them into a word processing program. You must be able to listen and type at the same time, and quickly. A medical spellchecker helps, and you can get a system for rapid text entry, such as Instant Text. Find out about training and connect with others in the field through the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity.
