Why is Medical Transcription so important?  Rather why are deadlines more important?

It’s all to do with the growth of technology.  Diagnoses, reports, referrals all need instant typing.  Can you honestly say your practice is stress-free meeting deadlines easily and without complication?  Could you not do with a service available to accommodate as much or as little typing as required?

OutSec Typists ‘guarantee’ Return Timeframes

This is easy as the OutSec Medical Team is vast!  ALL our medical transcriptionists have at least 5 years’ experience in their chosen speciality.  Each typist works directly with doctors, practice managers, clinicians and surgeons getting to understand their individual needs.  After all not everyone dictates in the same style!   It is just a matter of familiarisation in exactly the same way as an in-house secretary.

In addition a specialist ‘medico-legal’ team assists lawyers, expert witnesses, insurance companies, and more to prepare their documents for Court.

A dedicated Account Manager works with each client.  Again nothing worse than not having a direct contact to talk to, or email, or skype.  This is backed up by the OutSec FileManager system, a bespoke workflow solution. Our free App marries dictation and typing.  In fact it does more than that, it turns your smartphone into a digital recorder that can be used instantly, from anywhere, 24/7.  Typists type directly into practices’ patient management systems, or on Word. As a result typing deadlines are met daily and without fuss.  After all isn’t this what we all want?

Increase In-house Value

Why type in-house?  At £35+/hour, compared to £16 outsourced surely in-house resources should be better employed? Why not consider in-house staff handling social media?  They, after all, know your business and are savvy in this important business-driven media.  Why not ensure the phones are always answered promptly and efficiently?  After all a call is potentially a new client.  This is where the focus should be.

Why use the OutSec Medical Transcription  Solution?

…..Because we have been in business since 2002

…..Because we are ISO27001 Certified and Cyber Security Accredited

…..The reasons are numerous.  But don’t take our word for it, ring and talk to us personally.  We are simply here to help you make your life easier.  Try us and see for yourself.

Independent Practitioners Journal

Clients choose OutSec as either:

A complete medical transcription solution. Many practices send all their dictation work to us so their staff can focus on core responsibilities and patient care.  Typing costs are reduced by 30%+.  Efficiencies are improved.  No more recruitment and training costs for new and/or temporary staff.  Click on our Cost Calculator to see the True Cost of an Employee. You may be surprised by the results.

As back-up during peak times.  Medical internal staff have competing deadlines across multiple work areas.   Urgent typing but no-one to type it up?  What to do?  Easy solution – with OutSec urgent files are returned immediately. Consider: what if your staff are on holiday or away due to illness?  Temps need training.  Not so with OutSec!  Therefore by having an account with OutSec  you have a solution available for any ‘sudden’ occasion.  A bit like an insurance company.  We are here to ensure that YOUR typing demands are always met.  ALWAYS!

Naturally all OutSec medical typists are Information Governance certified and comply with all current GDPR and Data Security Regulations.  References available on request.

ISO27001 Certification/Cyber Security Accreditation

Can you take a company’s ‘word’ that they comply with regulatory requirements?  Are you happy to accept their word?  The implications of outsourcing and non-compliance with GDPR is a huge risk.  We recommend reading the following two articles:

The Importance of ISO27001 Certification.
The Importance of Cyber Security Accreditation.

OutSec are proud of their ISO27001 Certification and Cyber Security Accreditation.  We can assure all clients using our service that they are in safe hands.  Further questions though?  No problem, email Murray Hart, OutSec’s IT Director, at murray.hart@outsec.co.uk.

Confidentiality & Data Security

OutSec has a strict policy on sensitive information.  In addition we take data protection and security to its highest levels as confirmed by Certifications.  If you would like confidentiality (or non-disclosure agreements) signed this is not a problem.  Equally we are more than happy to provide references, again, if applicable.
