Doctors save lives. Along with the nursing staff, they work hard to improve the well being and health of their patients. However, along with the many wonderful stories of patients receiving a second chance at life, there are also the horror stories of malpractice lawsuits.
There is a great deal of pressure on the medical community to perform at an error-free level. At some point, there is a limit to the human ability to heal in the face of a certain illness or accident. But beyond that, many malpractice suits could be avoided with the maintenance of accurate and complete medical documents.
Errors in documentation risk the lives of patients, and threaten the practice of many healthcare providers. In addition, since the medical records are the key evidence used in many malpractice cases, they are often used in litigation. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that all documentation in a patient’s record be complete and error-free. In fact, the administrative simplification provisions of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) encourage increased usage of electronic data and communications in order to simplify transactions and make data more secure. Worldwide Dictation is a medical transcription agency that rises to this level of quality, and ensures HIPAA compliance in all our transactions.
A healthcare provider’s credibility is at stake, as is the patient’s well being. Because of this, the staff at Worldwide Dictation is trained to exceed even AAMT’s standards. We never train our staff using your documents, and we continuously test our staff on a routine basis. In keeping with these high standards, each document is edited by a senior medical transcriptionist before it is sent back to you.
