Are you looking for a resource that provides a real-life, hands-on opportunity to participate in the document-production process of a typical healthcare provider? As a medical transcriptionist, you will be expected to transcribe patient information and documentation using highly specialized language on the most up-to-date technical computer platforms and software programs. MEDICAL TRANSCIPTION PROJECTS enables you to practice your working knowledge of the medical reports most commonly used in hospital and ambulatory care settings as you transcribe reports dictated by real physicians taken from reports of actual patients. Inside you will find the tools you need to practice everything from proofreading skills and listening to and editing speech-recognition-generated documents to formatting medical reports in accordance with the established guidelines of the AHDI and completing cloze exercises which will encourage your understanding of medical terminology in the context of a medical report.
