FEW MEDICAL DICTATION TIPS TO USE WHILE
RECORDING AN AUDIO FILE FOR MEDICAL
TRANSCRIPTION:

THE NOISES OF SURROUNDINGS:


Always try to choose an area with less surrounding noise,
especially microphones catch noises very easily. Dictating in a
quiet and secure surrounding will definitely improve the result and
also maintain the patient confidential. It is the best practice for
medical dictation not to record in the areas having surrounding
noises and distractions like – people talking, ringing cell phones,
music sounds, vacuum, other speakers and beepers etc. Even the
voice of air conditioning can be multiplied in the background.
Sometimes, you have no option but to dictate in the outdoor
location, then you should try to avoid such areas like a lot of traffic
noises, very windy type of areas. These factors can compromise
audio quality.

upon the microphones. The recorder needs to be placed
about 3/4″ from the mouth in an upright level position so

that you are not covering it with your hand while
recording. Generally, microphones over built-in
microphones provide better quality.

note of unusual or difficult terms, similar sounding words
and the names of referring physicians. If you think there can
be a chance of confusion then it’s better to spell it out.
While most certified transcriptionist services hire competent
transcriptionists who generally do double check the spelling.

end up leaving the blank spaces in the transcript.

SUMMARY:
Key for Better Services- Good Dictation & Work Habits

Instead of using a keyboard and mouse using speech to document


encounters are more natural. In a recent NIH-supported research study
by ZyDoc, Clinical dictation has been shown to be an average of 2.5 times
faster than typing. Dictation needs to be learned where speaking is a
more natural modality, good speech habits.

Achieving excellent transcription also demands attention to


workflow details such as providing completed information and correct
information. Getting the right information saves time and frustration for
both the author and the transcriptionist, and reduces the probability of
the errors.
