In the United States, it is legally binding on doctors to provide the medical records of their patients for health insurance and healthcare documentation purposes.
To save time, doctors use digital voice recorders to dictate their patients’ medical history, including the physical examination and medical problems, any lab and diagnostic tests that were requested and their results, diagnosis, treatment plan, and instructions given to the patient.
These dictations are then converted into digital voice files and sent to medical language specialists, who listen to the files and transcribe them into text format.
These reports then undergo rigorous editing and proofreading before they are sent over to the doctors.
This process of converting dictated medical reports into readable medical records is called Medical Transcription (now known as Healthcare Documentation).
