I know of several people in Madras who are actively involved in home medical transcription and they work nearly 12 hours a day and earn about Rs.30 to 40 thousand per month. The income varies based on the experience and the company that give transcription work.
Audio transcrption work requires good English and sound eras. One should be willing to work ghostly hours.
If you are a newbie to online money earning and this work at home typing job allures you, here is what you should know what exactly a medical transcription work is.
The scenario at the U.S.
When a patient goes to clinics or hospitals to consult a doctor, the entire information about that encounter is recorded in audio file. The doctor usually talk into a microphone that is connected to his computer and the computer records his talk which is about what the patient told of his physical complaints and what the doctor responded to him.
Medical Transcriptionists receive this recording, listen to it and type it on their computer while listening.This report is then sent to the doctor and stored in the patient's medical file.
This report by the medical transcriptionist is used to bill the patient. It is also used as a case history of the patient.
Here is a list of companies that hire medical transcription work to new as well as experienced home medical transcriptionists.
