Dear friends
*Introduction to Medical Transcription:*

The simplest definition of Transcription is conversion of voice to
electronic text form. Medical Transcription is an IT enabled service that
requires specialized skills in utilizing Information technology in
converting the voice data of the doctors who are in the US, consisting of
patient history and medical advises into electronic documents.

A Health Professional who transcribes medical reports dictated by a
physician concerning a patient's health care is a Medical Transcriptionist.
