INDUSTRY TRENDS AND POTENTIAL THREATS

The most conceivable and recognizable threat to the medical industry as a whole is the emergence of new voice recognition software. However, in spite of the advances in this technology, it has been difficult for the computer to grasp and analyze the human voice and the English language with all its diversity. Besides, as many as software develop, there will still be people needed to edit what is transcribed by the software. Hence, there will continue to be a need for skilled medical language specialists who expand their education and have the knowledge to identify and edit the inevitable errors created by speech recognition systems and who have enough understanding of health records to create an accurate final document. Medical transcriptionists will therefore remain the ultimate qualified persons to discern the nuances of human speech.
