AHMS 255 - Medical Transcription I

2 credits (Hrs: 2 Lec.)


Medical transcription is part of the healthcare industry that renders and edits doctor dictated reports, procedures, and notes in an electronic format in order to create files representing the treatment history of patients. Health practitioners dictate what they have done after performing procedures on patients and MT’s transcribe the oral dictation and/or edit reports that have gone through speech recognition software.

Pertinent up-to-date, confidential patient information is converted to a written text document by a medical transcriptionist (MT). This text may be printed and placed in the patient’s record and/or retained only in its electronic format.

Prerequisite(s): AMGT 113 , AHMS 144 . Course generally offered 1st semester.
