Demand of Medical Transcriptionist Growing Fast!

"Employment of Medical Transcriptionists is projected to grow faster than average for all occupations through 2014. Transcription services will be spurred by a growing and aging demand for medical population because older age groups receive proportionately greater numbers of medical tests, treatments, and procedures that require documentation. A high level of demand for transcription services also will be sustained by the continued need for electronic documentation that can easily be shared among providers, third-party payers, regulators, consumers, and health information systems.
Growing numbers of medical transcriptionists will be needed to amend patients' records, edit documents from speech recognition systems, and identify discrepancies in medical reports." -US Department of Labor
