Guardians of Health Record Integrity
Prevent Errors. Preserve Stories. Protect Lives.
This is the week we celebrate you!
National Medical Transcriptionist Week was established in 1985 by President Ronald Regan and this year marks the 28th time medical transcriptionists have been nationally recognized and honored.
Providing high quality patient care today does not happen solely in the exam room. It extends far beyond that, to the many medical transcriptionists, medical billers, medical coders, medical scribes, etc. who supply the fundamental medical information used by today’s clinicians as the foundation for the very care they provide. Without this timely and more importantly accurate information a clinician’s ability to provide quality healthcare would be severely handicapped. It is through the perseverance of dedicated, driven, conscientious medical transcriptionists that quality medical information (the patient’s health story) is available to clinicians today and available to follow each of us into the future. Imagine if that information was not accurate or complete!
In celebration of National Medical Transcriptionist Week we invite you to participate in contests on our Facebook page starting tomorrow, Monday, May 19th and running all week long. We will be giving away some great prizes so don’t forget to participate daily! Please go to American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group and like us!
