Health Professionals Need Not “Reinvent the Wheel” for EMR/EHR Compliance

Laurinburg, NC – With Electronic Medical Records (aka Electronic Health Records) becoming a requirement for health care professionals in coming years, a North Carolina company has improved an existing technology in order to make the transition less costly for affected organizations. December 13 marked a notable turning point in the healthcare debate - the Virginia Federal Courts rejected the Minimum Essential Coverage Provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), declaring it as unconstitutional. While Virginia’s decision is only the most recent ruling, it sets the stage for the potential dismantling of Obamacare. Because the United States House of Representatives will transfer control to the Republicans, health care professionals have begun to question the safety of EMR/EHR funding.

“The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, from which the EMR/EHR funding and incentives originates, is a different statute than the PPACA,” says Justin Barnes of the Healthcare Blog, a respected independent voice in the healthcare industry. Barnes points out that the funding for HITECH is grounded in law, and is drawn from the Medicare Trust Funds held by the US Treasury. As a result, physicians must prepare for when the EMR/EHR legislation takes effect over the next several years. Often viewed by physicians as costly and cumbersome, this nationwide platform is dogged with potential cost increases. New EMR/EHR technologies are surfacing every day, in an effort to accommodate the rapidly changing healthcare environment. One such technology is digital transcription services, which are being adapted to use more efficient speech recognition technologies and accurate translation methods. Among the forerunners in EMR/EHR technology is Transcription Solutions, a Laurinburg, NC, based company that is staying ahead of the new technology mandates and requirements. “While there are many EMR/EHR software solutions on the market that are very costly, our solution actually improves existing technology while lowering overall costs,” states Brent Sexton, president of Transcription Solutions, “as a result, practices and health care providers need not invest large amounts of money in order to comply with these laws.” While the healthcare debate still has a long way to go, physicians can save time and resources by considering improved technology, not necessarily new technology, to help them adapt to pending regulations.

Transcription Solutions is an all USA based transcription technology and services company located in Laurinburg, North Carolina, that offers health care professionals with turn-key digital transcription based on advanced M*Modal Speech Understanding™ technology. This superior technology utilizes a simple hand-held recording device to transcribe conversational speech into precise digital written notes, delivering a much more accurate result with little or no editing required. Transcription Solutions offers health care professionals several options for transcription, including total turn-key service, or practice software and training. For more information, visit
