What is a medical transcriptionist?

Medical transcriptionists are responsible for listening to recordings of medical information and writing it down to provide a text record of interactions between patients and healthcare providers. Their transcribed reports help doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals complete their work efficiently and keep detailed, accurate notes about every one of their patients. Medical transcriptionists may produce written reports in many formats including discharge reports, imaging studies, medical chart reviews, patient referrals and clinical summaries.

It's common for medical transcriptionists to work remotely from their home office, using an online portal to download assignment files and upload their finished transcriptions. They use transcription software to rewind and repeat audio clips to ensure they have an accurate transcription and use specific notations to indicate unclear parts of the audio file. Transcriptionists edit their work for spelling and formatting, alerting clinic administrators when assignments are complete.
