As in other medical specialties, dictation in an endocrinology clinic has to be carried out in a specific format that is acceptable for reimbursement. The dictation would include details about the patient’s medical history, chronological history of the main problem inclusive of dates and diagnoses, medication history, a full review of systems with signs and symptoms, and related social and family history. The dictation has to be transcribed, corrections made, edited and electronically filed. In a busy practice, this would take up a lot of valuable time and resources. That points to the importance of endocrinology transcription service provided by leading medical transcription companies.

Files are transferred through encrypted email or uploaded on a secure FTP server.
