World Wide Dictation has been providing medical transcription services for over 50 years. With no set-up fees or long-term contracts, this company earns an award for its attention to detail, comprehensive dictation tools and high-level security.
Once your transcript is typed and reviewed, it goes through an additional two levels of screening to ensure there are no errors for a total of three quality control checks. Then the reviewed documents are sent electronically back to your office to be stored in the patients' electronic charts. This gives you professional and thorough documentation for easy archiving and retrieval.
A dedicated transcriptionist is assigned to each physician. Every doctor has a unique dictation style, and a dedicated transcriptionist will quickly learn the doctor's style, increasing speed and accuracy.
In order to meet stringent HIPAA guidelines, a minimum standard of 128-bit SSL encryption must be in place. This medical transcription company's software exceeds the minimum-security standards with 256-bit security encryption.
World Wide Dictation keeps all of its data storage in-house. This gives you an added level of security because you do not have to worry about outside companies accessing your patients' confidential data. In addition, automatic backups save your records in real time with unlimited storage.
Setting up a new dictation service can be frustrating, so the company offers assistance and 24-hour technical support. However, the company's website is often difficult to navigate to find all the relevant information you need, so you may need to contact a representative directly for detailed information to any questions. The service also helps you integrate its service with your current electronic medical records system (EMR). Before signing on to any transcription service, you should check if the company can integrate with your EMR to avoid any compatibility problems.
This medical dictation service includes an 800 number that is available for use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each user has a personal identification number (PIN) that allows access to the system. You can use the phone keypad to rewind or pause your recordings so you can preview them before sending. The company also maintains two toll-free numbers, so you can always have access to one in case the other temporarily goes down.
This medical transcription service allows you to dictate using a digital handheld recorder as well. Once you record your dictation into the device, there are two options for transferring the data. You can upload it directly onto the company website or you can use the automated software the company provides free of charge.
You also have the option to use an audio tape for your medical dictations, although this will result in slower overall turnaround times, as it takes a little longer for the service to get your dictation. When using an audio tape, you can mail in tapes overnight for next-day service. The company also offers clients the ability to use medical dictation smartphone apps for Android and iOS.
This medical transcription company offers several methods of delivery for your completed transcriptions. In addition to EMR integration, you can have hard copies of your transcriptions mailed overnight to your practice. You can also choose to have the documents faxed. A more common and convenient option is the ability to log in to your World Wide Transcription online portal and download the transcriptions directly from your online account.
To manage your documentation, World Wide Dictation offers services such as online editing and free faxing. Electronic signatures are encrypted so you can use electronic signatures and sign your documentation online. This speeds up your charting and paperwork because you do not have to print out hard copies, sign them and store them. In addition, you have automatic data backup with secure online storage.
When you sign up for this service, the company asks you what turnaround time you want for your practice. The most common turnaround time that practices requests is the next business day. Because turnaround times are flexible, your cost-per-line quote will vary according to what times you need. You can also have transcriptions expedited for an extra fee if you have an emergency.
For a reputable medical transcription service with excellent security and over 50 years in the business, World Wide Transcription offers reliability and support along with a knowledgeable, dedicated transcriptionist assigned to each doctor in your practice.
