Medical Transcription is the process of creating hard copy and electronic documents from doctors' dictated reports. Translating oral dictation into detailed patient records can be done within a hospital, clinic, lab, doctor's office, or from your own home. In fact, Medical Transcription was ranked as one of the top ten home-based businesses in Inc., Parents, Business Start-Ups and Good Housekeeping Magazines.
Working in the medical industry has many benefits. Not only is typing medical records interesting and challenging work, but you also learn a lot about medicine. And best of all, it is a very stable career field. The North American population is aging, and we are also living longer than ever. As our population grows, and we age, the demand on our health care system will grow as well - increasing the demand in all health care sectors, including Medical Transcription.
