When You Dictate Two Patients on One Report
Dictating more than one patient report on a dictated file presents problems for the transcriptionists-a lot of them.
Simply put, if you will click “Stop” on your recorder and then immediately click “Record”, or on the telephone click “5” (save) and then immediately “2” (record), then in both cases the new patient (recording) will be on a new file. This will speed things up considerably and minimize the possibility of errors in the transcription.

Best Practices in Dictation
Overview Quality healthcare documentation begins with the dictation process. When participants in the process work together, everyone benefits - the dictator, the medical transcriptionist, other healthcare professionals, and, most importantly, the patient.
The common problems are easily illustrated. The dictator is often frustrated with blanks left in a report, the medical transcriptionist is perplexed when trying to decipher important passages obscured by background noises, the report is delayed in turnaround time as several quality assurance editors all try to decipher those same critical passages, the coder needs the report to initiate the reimbursement cycle and other healthcare professionals look at a report with blanks as risky to important decisions needed for patient care.
This white paper reviews the currently published standards and industry resources related to quality practices in dictation, the first step in quality healthcare documentation.
