This introduction to medical transcripting includes a CD-ROM. Unit One is designed to reinforce medical terminology, keyboarding, and proofreading skills. Unit Two promotes competency in transcripting by offering seven different medical specialties with medical terms and reports appropriate for each. With the increased documentation required by insurance and managed care regulations, proficiency in transcripting is vital to patient care and legal compliance. The text appears to be appropriate for the introductory student. The text is designed to introduce students to medical transcripting. The text appears appropriate for prospective production or medical office transcriptionists. The authors both have strong backgrounds in transcripting and education to bring credibility to the project. Unit One includes the fundamentals and an overview of transcripting with an introduction to medical records components, how to proofread your own work, and general guidelines for record compliance.

Unit Two features separate exercises appropriate for seven specific specialties, with specialty terms and an innovative Error Analysis Chart to help students see and correct errors. Error identification results are compared against a Production for Pay Summary to reinforce accountability for the production transcriptionist. Though not a deficiency for this level of text, the authors presume that the student has anatomy and physiology proficiency, a basicknowledge of pharmacology, and most other aspects of medical practice. It is presumed that this text is a component of a larger course that covers these topics. This text is appropriate in depth, demonstrates a high quality of instruction in text and ancillaries, and is an excellent resource for students who plan to pursue medical transcripting as a career.

Advanced Medical Transcription

Advanced Medical Transcription Course

with Back of Book CD - A Modular Approach (Please note: This is a BOOK and CD-ROM.)

By Cindy Destafano, BSBa, RT(R) and Fran M. Federman, MSEd
Approx. 608 pages, Illustrated, Copyright 2003


This innovative, hands-on text guides readers through progressively more difficult scenario drills and office simulations, helping them gain confidence as they master valuable transcription skills. Using a building block format, the first unit presents fundamental skills and knowledge that are essential to medical transcription practice, and the second unit lets readers take on the role of a medical transcriptionist working at an outpatient health care center. Students gain real-world feedback on their transcription skills with interactive exercises on CD-ROM with a Production for Pay Summary feature that calculates their adjusted earnings per hour for each document they complete. An Error Analysis chart categorizes and tracks undetected errors by noting the occurrence of repeated types of mistakes so students can track their own progress and learn more effectively.

Key Features:

  • The modular, building-block approach presents segments of information followed immediately by exercises that reinforce material, so students can continually progress to new topics.
  • Competency-based, programmed learning approach makes it easy to clearly identify and measure the student's progress.
  • Real-world practice scenarios place the student in a simulated "employee" role, providing a sense of on-the-job training for a fictitious health care center with its own rules and procedures.
  • An Error Analysis chart for each document categorizes and tracks undetected errors by noting the occurrence of repeated types of mistakes (differentiating between medical language errors and English language errors) so students can identify problem areas and improve performance.
  • Production for Pay Summary feature replaces the traditional evaluation process, recording how quickly the document was created, subtracting credit for errors, and calculating the student's adjusted earnings per hour for that document - just like earning a paycheck.
  • A Microsoft Word compatible CD-ROM offers pre-tests and post-tests, proofreading exercises, and actual transcription exercises, plus an office simulation program that offers additional transcription practice with a self-correcting feature that gives automatic feedback on the student's accuracy.
