The 99% Accuracy in Medical Transcription
The accuracy of the medical record is of highest importance in guaranteeing quality care to the patient. It is a fundamental relation between patient and the healthcare provider.
Both minor errors and major errors can decrease the reliability and the apparent qualifications of the healthcare provider. Even minor errors such as typos, grammatical inconsistencies and others are being measured to determine the performance of a medical transcriptionist. Most often, an MT is expected to transcribe at least 99% correct or even better 100%.
