Medical transcription services are crucial for medical and healthcare for a number of reasons as they convert all the essential information in audio format into text making the medical data accessible and easy to be stored for future reference. Without medical transcripts, it would become extremely difficult for medical professionals to perform their duties making it challenging to access right information of a patient as and when it’s required to be used. In present times, hospitals/clinics, pharmaceutical companies, clinical research organisations as well as medical and healthcare communications agencies utilise medical transcription services on a number of projects. While majority of organizations commonly use human medical transcribers to transcribe audio into transcripts, new trends are focusing on using artificial intelligence and other speech to text software to transcribe medical audio files into transcripts which is both efficient and cost effective. 


As mentioned above, medical transcription services are utilised frequently by medical professionals due to which it is essential to understand the types of medical transcription services that are commonly provided by medical transcription service providers.
