Voice Recognition vs. Medical Transcription

For physicians that understand the importance of their charts and documentation being error-free, there's only one clear solution.

Documenting patient symptoms and health records has only become more important as the increasing regulations keep a close watch on medical practices.

Back in the day, physicians knew exactly what they were “meaning to say” and could easily document their own notes. But as patient volume increases, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to sit down and carefully transcribe every explicit detail of a patient visit.

This is why practices often rely on voice recognition technology to transcribe the data for them. Enter a new era of problems physicians never had to deal with before when writing their notes–the issue of intent. In this whitepaper, we will be discussing:
