Healthcare Documentation Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Healthcare Documentation?

A: Virtually every encounter that takes place between a health care provider (physician) and his or her patient must be put into written documentation. Generally, the information is recorded onto a digital voice processing system through a phone line. The dictated information is then listened to by a medical healthcare documentation specialist through a headset and foot pedal who transcribes the report into either a hard copy or an electronic medical record using a computer and a word processor.
