What Documentation Obstacles Do Radiologists Face?
Just like in other medical fields, the ongoing digitization of healthcare documentation has brought the adoption of electronic health records — or EHRs — to radiology. While this change undoubtedly makes the maintenance, storing and sharing of patients’ medical records less burdensome, it adds significantly to radiologists’ workload, as they’re required to constantly keep pace with an ongoing flow of data entry. If they don’t, they could be at risk of reimbursement challenges, medical audits and even malpractice lawsuits.
On top of that, with the rise of EHRs, radiologists have to comply with HIPAA regulations. Failure to do so could mean incurring significant penalties.

Are Radiology Transcription Services the Solution To Your Data Entry Burden?
There are two main challenges for radiologists when it comes to maintaining current, comprehensive and accurate EHRs.
One, it’s labor-intensive and time-consuming to perform data entry immediately after seeing a patient — or even on the same day — which limits the number of patients a radiologist can see. Additionally, many radiologists often have to perform long hours of overwork to finish their transcriptions, which causes fatigue and stress — and can even lead to burnout.
Furthermore, recruiting a new hire to perform radiology transcription services on-site ultimately adds to a practice’s operating costs due to the additional payroll, equipment and office space expenses. Especially for small to mid-sized practices, these added costs can make the acquisition of a new staff member unfeasible.
