Have a great week!



National Medical Transcriptionist Week May 20 - 26

Our work is so important.  We're not just a second set of eyes, we're the last line of defense in ensuring the integrity and accuracy of patients' health records.  

Though our names may change, the job doesn't, and I take great pride in being a medical transcriptionist, medical language specialist, healthcare documentation specialist (whatever they want to call me).  I love this job and am grateful it's being recognized!  Read Ronald Reagan's Proclamation here.

How do you plan to celebrate MT Week?  


AHDI Credential Renaming

Happy Friday to everyone!!!!

I want to get the word out here to fellow medical transcriptionists, editors, and QA folks.

Please click the link below, read, and at the bottom there is a survey for our renaming our credentials.  Whether you are credentialed or not, plan to be or not, your voice should be heard as this affects us as a whole. The poll will close May 1, 2012.

Here's some text from AHDI's blog

In response to the recent rebranding of the medical transcription practitioner to Healthcare Documentation Specialist (HDS), the CDT is exploring new names for the credentials Certified Medical Transcriptionist and Registered Medical Transcriptionist. We are seeking your input on the renaming of the credential. 

Here is a link to the AHDI's blog post - Survey: AHDI Credential Renaming  

Please let your voice be heard on this matter. Thank you, and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
