Medical Transcription

What does a Medical Transcriptionist do?
A Medical Transcriptionist (MT), interprets and transcribes physician-dictated reports and other documents, which become a permanent part of the patient’s record, which in turn functions as an important document for future healthcare delivery, for medicolegal, billing purposes, etc..
According to the Department of Trade and Industry, MT is the next sunrise industry after the call centers. While the share of the Philippines of the $5 billion outsourced business from the US is not even 1 percent, the government is optimistic that it will surge significantly considering the computer skills of Filipinos and their proficiency in English. The US Medical Transcription Industry Alliance on the other hand, recorded the
average employment of US transcriptionists to be 230, 000 annually. The supply, however, is declining by 10 percent yearly. This demand for medical transcription in the US led to the increase in investments by medical transcription firms in other countries, including the Philippines.

Today, there is a shortage of over 300, 000 qualified MTs worldwide according to the American Association for Medical Transcriptionists (AAMT).
