Can Transcription Help EMR Implementation?

The AC Group recently noted a 73% failure rate of EMRs due to usability frustrations. Part of that is the fact that many EMRs do not offer a comprehensive dictation/transcription solution as part of their documentation process. Instead they rely on the physicians to enter the data in themselves. The medical transcription industry has developed technology called Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT) which enables physicians to document their patient encounters just the way they always have. It provides a choice for documentation. Make sure the EMR you choose is DRT enabled and ensure a successful implementation.
