Earn Money by Transcribing Medical Records
Electronic medical records, patient medical histories, referral letters and physical exam reports often start out as audio files that physicians and other health-care professionals have dictated into a recorder. That means someone—possibly you—is needed to convert the words into secure written files as a medical transcriptionist. Most employers want someone who will work a minimum of 20 hours per week, including some weekends. Great typing and knowledge of grammar are important, as is a solid understanding of medical terminology. Those with little or no experience can get a foot in the door by taking a self-paced, online course on medical terminology and documentation methods, such as the one offered for $50 at universalclass.com. Contact the doctor’s offices in your area to tell them about your services. You also might want to sign on with an agency such as the ones found at medscribe.com and mtjobs.com.
