    Frequently Asked Questions

    Are Medical Transcriptions a Security or HIPAA Violation Risk?

    Medical transcriptions are only a security or HIPAA risk if you choose the wrong transcription company.

    You should make sure that the company or agency you work with is reputable, and also has a department that specializes in medical transcriptions.

    This will allow them to have medical specialists who signed non-disclosure agreements which would make the transcription HIPAA compliant.

    When choosing a medical transcription service, you have to make sure this is the case.

    If you do, then there is no security risk in using medical transcription services.

    Here at Espresso Translations, we ensure that this is the case with all of our medical transcriptionists.

    Are You a Certified Medical Transcription Company?

    While there are no official certifications that medical transcription companies must have, we are ISO certified for quality assurance.

    Additionally, we also make all of our medical transcriptionists sign a non-disclosure agreement which makes our transcripts HIPAA compliant.

    There are some medical certifications that individuals can earn. We make sure that all of our medical transcriptionists have earned sufficient medical transcription certificates before allowing them to work on medical projects.

    How Much Do Your Medical Transcription Services Cost?

    As we offer custom solutions that are tailored towards each client’s needs, the price varies from project to project.

    For medical transcription services, you usually pay per line which is defined as 65 characters.

    This type of pricing has the advantage that you will only pay for the audio you want to transcribe.

    In the long term, you can save lots of money, this way as it works out to be much more affordable than hiring a full-time assistant. Additionally, the quality is also much better.

    The prices are usually based on how complex the topic is, the turnaround time, and the audio quality. If you would like a general guideline for transcription pricing, you can also read our guide to Transcription Service rates.

    This combined with our quick response time is perfect for when you’re in a rush.

    Can I Use an Automated Transcription Software Instead?

    While automated transcription software may seem attractive because of its cheap price and fast turnaround, they are not suited for most purposes, and definitely not a medical transcription.

    The reason for this is that AI technology is not yet at the point, where it can understand humans perfectly.

    Because, of this, you’ll end up with an inaccurate transcript.

    This is especially the case for medical, as a lot of terms are complex “specialist” terms that AI technology will usually get completely wrong.

    Plus, when you are talking about clinical documentation, patient records, and other important documents from the healthcare industry, accuracy is extremely important.

    This is why we recommend avoiding automated software for your medical transcription, and instead choosing an agency that has strict quality control.

    How Long Does It Take To Transcribe 1 Hour of Audio?

    As a very broad rule of thumb, transcriptionists say that it takes them around 3-4 hours for every hour’s worth of audio.

    However, as you can imagine that time frame heavily varies from recording to recording.

    Usually, the harder the audio is to understand, the longer it takes.

    This is also why most healthcare professionals don’t hire a full-time assistant to help them, as they don’t have the medical technical knowledge, nor are they a skilled transcriptionist. Because of this, they take a huge amount of time which causes you to overpay.
