We strive to provide the most accurate and flexible transcription service for the medical arts. Often the particular needs of an office create unique requirements.  Specific medical domains have key terminology.  We are familiar with the many domains and utilize medical dictionaries to stay current on drugs and advancements in the field.  Increasing use of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and changes to health care policy require us to adapt to your needs.  Type-thing Services will work to provide a customized procedure for transcribing that works for you and format your transcription as required. When requested, we will provide feedback and advice about how you can optimize your medical dictation and transcription needs.  We've visited a number of offices from small to large to help identify options you can choose for your business. For remote offices, we can interview over the phone to understand your operations.  When you're happy, we're happy.

Why is Type-thing Services less expensive and a better value?
We are often asked about the cost of our transcription.  For medical transcription, your total cost is often less and our overall value greater than our competitors.  Here are a few reasons why: We can provide 24 hour to 48 hour turn around in most situations without additional cost including scheduled regular work.  We can provide rush transcription for other urgent work if we have enough capacity (at rush rates). When we charge by the word for medical transcription, you're not charged for many lines on reports or forms that have only a few characters or words.  Why would you want to pay a line rate for reports that contain very sparse lines? When we transcribe for medical reports and letters, unless you say otherwise, we convert your spoken English into written English, remove redundancies, and end up reducing the word and line count for your finished product.  This saves you money.  Many other services type exactly what you say, resulting in more cost to you and words you must delete from the finished transcription! When we apply our secretarial skills to convert your documents into final form during the transcription process, you spend less of your time or no time trying to fix faulty transcription from over-seas or less capable services. If your transcription works well in a form or template, then we may be able to set up a system where you are only charged for the parts you dictate, not the entire content of your form. For volume customers, we provide a reasonable amount of stat reports at no charge! We are skilled at providing analysis of your dictation to identify ways to reduce your overall bill.  Once we're familiar with your style, we can do this for individuals and office teams that have many dictators.  Which are verbose?  Which are efficient?  We can provide suggestions for you or your staff about how to reduce your time dictating and reduce your bill.  Why?  Many times this also saves us much time listening to long dictations that contain fewer words.  If you're happy--we're happy.
