On Monday, Amazon launched Transcribe Medical, a transcription service designed to improve documentation in healthcare settings. This new service will allow medical professionals to convert spoken dictation directly into text, and enter it automatically into electronic health record (EHR) systems. This means that doctor/patient conversations and any other important spoken information during a visit can be taken down verbatim as it happens, reducing the risk of transcription errors and improving patient care.
This new service from Amazon is the latest innovation in a rapidly growing field. Electronic Health Records are more important to healthcare facilities than ever as traditional paper charts are being phased out.
At ACI Medical & Dental School, students can become a Certified EHR Specialist through the National Healthcareer Association in just four months by completing our Medical & Dental Administrative Assistant Program. This program offers students the opportunity to turn general office skills into a specialty that will help them land an in-demand career in the growing medical & dental industries.
