Why Do Anesthesiologists Need Transcription Services?
Anesthesiology is one of the most lucrative and important medical specializations. Anesthesiologists are responsible for pain management and keeping patients safe and comfortable during surgical procedures. A large number of Americans will find themselves in need of either anesthesiology or pain management medications at some point in their lives, and the right anesthesiologist can make a huge difference.
The epidemic of abuse of pain medications in recent years has made keeping accurate documentation of where and when such medication is recommended or distributed more important than ever. In addition, due to the risks of anesthesiology during surgery, anesthesiologists have some of the greatest exposure when it comes to liability claims. It’s critical that all the major decisions anesthesiologists make be properly documented and, when appropriate, that that documentation appears in the patient’s Electronic Health Record (EHR).

What Transcription/Dictation Obstacles Do Anesthesiologists Face?
Anesthesiologists may treat a great many patients in a given week and their discipline is so critical that each of these patients must have their full attention, in some cases for hours. Finding time to write up all the documentation required to maintain an accurate EHR for each patient can be extremely labor-intensive and time-consuming, causing undue stress to the anesthesiologist.
