The benefits of accurate transcription cannot be overstated for physicians. Accurate transcription is not only critical for better patient care, but it also is the bread and butter of RCM companies. As a practice management software vendor, AdvancedMD and its partners and customers fully understand the importance of choosing the right transcription vendor.

Secure, HIPAA-compliant solutions with interfaces in place with EHR

Today, physician practices are predominately using EHR. Therefore, transcription vendors need to stay abreast with seamless integration, secure interface technologies and protocols. This forms a critical part of workflow for every busy practice today. It also ensures easy access to complete patient records for all stakeholders and reduces clinician burnout.

Accurate and timely dictation helps RCM

A streamlined transcription workflow using a mobile app (like Secure-UNO) helps providers complete their dictations in a timely fashion. The ability to review and e-Sign transcripts from any location ensures providers save time and stay productive. In addition, clinicians are not chasing providers to complete their charts. Delays in getting signed reports also delay coding and billing, impacting the RCM adversely.

Speed and workflow

Your transcription vendor should be able to get you accurate reports back the same day or the next morning. Additionally, many practices have unique workflow requirements like secure access for coders, billers, other offices and faxing to physicians’ offices, lawyers, etc. An experienced vendor should be able to offer all these options in a cost-effective manner. You want to choose a vendor who is invested in cloud-based software solutions and offers customized workflow options for busy specialty practices.

A smartphone-based dictating app can achieve this quite easily. And, an interface with AdvancedMD EHR ensures that specific sections of a report land into the EHR seamlessly—further reducing dictation time for providers. Typical studies indicate using a smartphone app that is integrated with an EHR, saves valuable provider time and a physician can see 30% more patients on any given day. And, he or she can dictate anywhere: home, office or in her car.

• No need to dictate patient medical information – Save time
• Dictate only sections that need to populate in AdvancedMD EHR – Streamline workflow
• Track pending and completed dictations easily – Make your clinicians happier

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
