What Documentation Obstacles Do Cardiologists Face?
Business is booming for healthcare professionals who specialize in cardiology — with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately half of all adult Americans have at least one of the three leading risk factors associated with heart disease — high cholesterol, high blood pressure and smoking. And, since heart disease is the number one cause of death for Americans, the care cardiologists offer their patients can be lifesaving.
Along with the need to treat their patients, cardiologists are under increasing pressure to keep up with data entry tasks associated with document management and the maintenance of electronic health records — or EHRs.
However, along with the need to treat their patients, cardiologists are under increasing pressure to keep up with data entry tasks associated with document management and the maintenance of electronic health records — or EHRs. As a result, many practicing cardiologists suffer from stress and burnout directly related to these labor-intensive duties.
In addition, with the adoption of new record-keeping technology and EHRs, cardiologists face a variety of regulatory and privacy issues associated with HIPAA. And as cardiologists know, failing to maintain HIPAA compliance can have far-reaching consequences.

Are Cardiology Transcription Services the Solution To Your Data Entry Burden?
A recent study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information reported that cardiologists who worked without any type of transcription and/or scribe service took an average of 40 minutes to see new patients and spent 20 minutes on follow-up appointments. The same report revealed that doctors who made use of medical transcription services spent an average of 30 minutes per new patient and took 15 minutes for follow-up visits.
The results of the report determined that medical transcription services for cardiologists helped increase doctors’ productivity levels by more than 10% — with those doctors seeing 9.6% more patients every hour than physician’s who didn’t use transcription services. The report also found that cardiology transcription services resulted in an average of more than $2,500 in additional direct and indirect revenue per patient.
Clearly, the need for transcription services is real. However, the choice of which service to employ may be the most sizable obstacle cardiologists’ face in finding a responsible, sustainable solution to their document management needs.
