Medical transcription professionals play a key role in providing accurate medical records. The industry is evolving to include two important and distinct roles:
• Medical transcriptionists who type (or transcribe) the dictations of doctor/patient interactions, creating the reports that are included in patients' medical records.
• Medical transcription editors who are specialized medical transcriptionists focused on correcting and editing the written reports generated by speech recognition software, which electronically transcribes dictations into text.
