Transcription in the EHR Age

Recently a colleague of mine forwarded me an article by Ken Congdon of Healthcare Technology Online, "Transcription in the EHR Age." He stresses the pitfalls practices experience while implementing an EHR primarily because of how drastically it changes a physician's behavior and recognizes challenges with respect to quality and data accuracy. Ken suggests that transcription in conjunction with the EHR can address many of the challenges associated with implementation. Using the technology transcription companies have available now, dictated information can be converted to text by a Medical Transcriptionist and inserted directly into an EMR. R+B Sten-Tel offeres such a solution today with EntriPoint. In other words, Medical Transcription can be a catalyst for EMR adoption.
