When a patient visits the doctor, the doctor conducts a physical examination, reviews the patients past medical history and requests for laboratory studies before making the diagnosis ,only then he plans on the treatment .After the patient leaves ,the doctor records the patient information into a voice-recorder like a cassette player or a telephone where the information is held temporarily by a server in the hospital or sent to a Transcription office .This report is then accessed by a medical transcriptionist who converts the dictation into medical record which is properly formatted, edited and reviewed. The next time the patient visits the doctor, the entire medical chart of the patients previous visits can be reviewed by the doctor, thereby simplifying the treatment process. Both the doctor and the medical transcriptionist play an important role to make sure the transcribed reports are correct and accurate.
