Demand for Podiatric Services Set to Grow

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of podiatrists will increase by 20% from 2010 to 2020. The growing demand for podiatric services is attributed to the rising number of people needing foot care for injuries. An increasingly older population, along with the increase in the incidence of diabetes and obesity is driving the demand for the services of podiatrists. In fact, with the burden of diabetes increasing worldwide, foot care for people with diabetes will become crucial. Issues that arise due to lack of podiatric care among diabetic patients can lead to damage to the foot, foot infections and ulcers, Charcot’s joints, and amputation.

As podiatrists become busier, their needs for efficient documentation services will also increase. There will be little time left for transcribing records and notes relating to a variety of conditions such as Onychomycosis, Keller Bunionectomy, Athlete’s Foot, Arthroplasty, Tinea Pedis, and patient progress notes.

The only effective solution is to outsource these transcription tasks to a reliable medical transcription company. With years of experience in providing quality transcription services, professional transcription services can offer tailor-made to meet podiatrist requirements. Outsourcing to the right firm will ensure high quality transcripts within specified turnaround time.

The medical transcription company can offer convenient dictations options such as toll free number or digital dictation. By using outsourced medical transcription services, podiatrists can focus better on treating their patients. Better patient care ultimately improves practice productivity and revenue.
