Should you outsource medical transcription services or do it in-house?

Medical Industry with the aim to cater to needs of their customers or patients often lack the time and resources to handle transcription services, which is also an important aspect for medical profession, same as for other businesses. Hence, they normally opt to outsource medical transcription to a reliable and efficient professional service provider who delivers quality service.

When you plan to do medical transcription services in-house:

  • You can make sure that the transcriptionist you hire is adhering to your standards of services. However, there is more possibility of getting better access to trained specialists with expertise in handling huge volume of transcription files, when you outsource.

  • You can ensure that sensitive data you handle is highly protected. It will be your responsibility to ensure data security during transcribing. If there is any data leak, you will be held liable for it.

Simultaneously, let’s have a look at the benefits of outsourcing medical transcription services:

  • You will cut back on the operational costs, which you would otherwise use for the purpose of doing medical transcription service in-house.

  • Seeing as there is a professional team with the experience in handling medical transcription, dedicated to complete the project, delivering it within the specified time without compromising on the quality of service will be easy. You can expect quicker turnarounds with better focus on accuracy, than if done in-house.

  • It will also give the in-house team more time to focus on their core responsibility, which is patient care.
