Speech Recognition Editing Course
When used in conjunction with properly trained medical transcription editors, speech recognition technology (SRT) has proven its worth by lowering healthcare costs and providing faster turn-around times. The technology serves as a bridge to the electronic health record by offering a familiar and efficient method of data entry to the medical community. The need for qualified SRT editors is expected to increase in correlation with the growing healthcare demands of an aging population.
In partnership with AHDPG and 3M, and with the contributions of a volunteer workgroup comprised of SRT developers, MT managers and supervisors, educators and practicing medical transcription professionals from around the country, the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) has developed the first of its kind speech recognition editing course which will:
Assist the practicing MT to confidently make the transition from standard transcription production worker to successful SRT knowledge-based worker.
Provide medical transcription schools and programs an option to broaden their curriculum.
Offer employers an excellent training opportunity for their workforce.
This course is a 100% online, self-study SRT course with open enrollment and is designed to be completed at the student’s individual pace within an approximate 8- to 12-week timeframe. It offers the student the opportunity for ample hands-on practice on 3M’s ChartScript.com platform using authentically speech recognized drafts from genuine physicians.
CMTs earn 5 PD and 5 TW CECs as defined in the core recredentialing guidelines upon completing this course.
