In the United States, healthcare is a state responsibility. Maintaining of health records by hospitals and medical practitioners is mandatory. Comprehensive medical records are linked to quality healthcare, medico-legal requirements, medical insurance claims, and online patient information systems.
Essentially, all that transpire between a doctor and a patient is dictated over the phone / dictation device to a central dictation server where it is stored as a voice file. This record will contain details ranging from patient demographics, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment plan and follow-up plan. Patient records broadly are classified as clinic notes or medical records. These could be further classified into various types – consultations, office visits, doctor-to-doctor referrals, doctor-to-patient letters, doctor-to-insurance company letters, chart notes, history and physicals, discharge summaries, operative reports, emergency room reports, radiology reports, death/final summaries, etc.
In view of the very nature of the patient record, accuracy is a key element. Hence, these reports can only be done by a trained professional with an excellent command over the English language and knowledge of fundamentals of medical theory.
In the US, there is a perennial shortage of qualified medical transcriptionists. It takes a two-year full-fledged training program and a minimum of three years’ experience to become a professional transcriptionist in the US. This has led to clients sourcing for offshore facilities with the dual purpose of getting the work done at a competitive price. Countries like India, West Indies, Philippines, and Sri Lanka, where there is a large English-speaking population, have become the most preferred regions. India among these countries has emerged as the leader because of the availability of a huge quality English speaking population.
Maintaining the health records by Hospitals and medical practitioners has become mandatory in many countries.

It has become the largest resource benefit among healthcare providers, doctors, hospitals, clinics, and out-patient surgical specialists.
