Is there any difference in quality between medical transcription in India and transcription processed in the U.S.?

Yes. We work hard with our transcriptionists, whether they be in India or the U.S., to provide the highest quality transcription available, but quality from India is on average lower, especially due to the differences in name spellings and speaking tendencies.

If you have ever changed transcription services before, you know that there is a learning curve. AcuTrans requests that each client provide regular feedback within the first two weeks while the transcriptionists learn the details of your account. We recommend that the Doctor, Secretary, or Office Manager review the documents received, make notations on the printed documents and fax your corrections to us. We understand that it may take some time to do this, but it will save you considerable time in the future. Whether you select the domestic or offshore option, regular feedback for these initial two weeks will usually curtail any problems with quality for either option. Periodically faxing in any spelling mistakes or common problems after the two weeks will insure quality transcription and a well-trained MT for years to come.

Can you tell me more about digital recording options?

Digital recorders come in many shapes, sizes, and prices. The price range is anywhere from thirty to forty dollars to hundreds of dollars. However, more important than price is the quality and functionality of the device.

We recommend the Olympus Digital Recorders, but any digital recorder that allows you to save an digital audio file to your hard drive should be fine. One of the reasons we encourage our clients to use the Olympus Professional Dictation recorders is because it will save the audio in a .dss format which is smaller and easier to transfer than most other audio formats.

If you have a digital recorder preference, let us know what kind of recorder you use and what audio format you plan to upload your files in by emailing us a sample, so we can determine if your audio file type will work as is, or if we need to adjust our systems to accommodate. This will help us plan accordingly for your account. If you are having difficulty finding an affordable recording device, contact us and we will help you find a cost effective recorder.

What kind of turnaround time should I expect?

Turn around time varies per industry. Normal turnaround time for Medical transcription is less than 2 business days and most other industries find that a 3 to 4 business day turnaround time is acceptable. We can meet the turn around standards for your transcription needs. Contact us if you have any questions, or special requests concerning a quick turnaround time.

How do I know when work has been completed?

We can set up your account so the server will e-mail you when files has been completed. This option can be turned on or off at anytime, just let us know your preference, and we can change your profile accordingly.

What if I need some files turned around quicker than others?

We understand that some files may be more time sensitive than others, and also offer an option to expedite important files. Expedited files will be given priority and your transcriptionist will be made aware automatically via our online system. Expedited files do incur an extra charge. Please contact us if you have any questions concerning the option to expedite documents.
