In the course of treatment, a patient may visit several specialists. An internist, pathologist, and endocrinologist might all evaluate and treat a patient. Each doctor will chart and dictate notes, prescriptions, and treatments. In one course of a lifetime, this same patient may experience treatment after treatment, and in many cases, prior medical history impacts the success of later medical care.
With the baby boomer generation aging and a concomitant increase in the average life span, the need for accurate and accessible medical documentation is crucial. Since a variety of physicians will need to access a patient’s documents to ensure quality care, online access is an advantage. At Worldwide Dictation, we provide fast and easy online access via your username and password; conversely, you can also give us your notes via the phone, using your secure PIN.
Although we provide you with online access to your documents from any computer, the documents are safely guarded. In actuality, the records are more secure than a full room of charts yet they are easier to access for those who are authorized to do so. An authorized doctor from another hospital will no longer need to order a file and wait to read important details of a patient’s history. This will not only save time, but will also prevent the mishandling of files.
An online medical transcriptionist can help you avoid these pitfalls, while allowing a doctor almost instant access to the needed information. Worldwide Dictation is leading the way in online medical transcription.
