Work From Home as an Online Medical Transcriptionist


Are you a pro at taking dictation, drafting documents, and getting things done without someone constantly checking on you? Are you sick of having your boss constantly on your back? Consider starting a small online medical transcription business. Many people think that medical transcription work is similar to that of a secretary in an office setting taking dictation from her boss. Medical transcription work, however, involves a doctor's voice on a tape recorder and lots of medical terminology.

If you aren't familiar with the field, it works like this. When doctors see patients, they relate the patient's medical history and advised treatments into a tape recorder which then has to be transcribed onto a document format. That's where you come in. Medical transcription work can be challenging because of the nature of the documents you will be producing. Often, doctors don't take the time to carefully pronounce difficult medical terms, are interrupted, or hold conversations with others while the tape is still running. A medical transcriptionist must be able to ascertain what information was meant to be transcribed by the doctor and what information is superfluous. Sometimes, doctors use short handed medical terms which you will be expected to translate into formal medical language. Also, the doctor does NOT take the time to dictate punctuation or formatting, so the transcriptionist must have a good knowledge of these writing conventions.

Transcriptionist work is perfect for stay-at-home moms who want to start a college fund, students who need extra cash for the weekends, or someone who wants to start a new business from home. But beware, because of a recent interest in this field it is likely that you will need some form of training, experience, or study in order to familiarize yourself with the business and be able to land those jobs. Transcription Careers can help provide you with the necessary information you need in order to get started and get your foot in the door.

Before starting out, you will want to learn the tricks of the trade on how to market yourself, how to avoid the many scams that are out there and how to use medical and legal job boards to get the highest paying jobs. With a little research and preparation, you could bring in a steady income while working from home.
