Destiny’s Medical Transcription

The American medical system requires precise, accurate medical records. Doctors used to write their notes as a reminder to themselves as well as to communicate with other physicians and surgeons who might also be providing care for the patient, or so that other allied health personnel would be able to understand each patient’s situation. However, increasingly over the last 20 years a patient's medical records have become important legal documents. To protect themselves, American doctors have been forced to document for each patient exactly what they did and did not do or what had been explained. This has required doctors to dictate nearly all patient encounters including phone conversations at times. The tremendous increase in medical transcription has transformed a once small part of the hospital medical records to a huge industry, which cannot keep up with the demand. This has necessitated cost saving measures and innovative solutions.

Picture of Bangladesh The Bengal, mostly represented by present day Bangladesh, was once the richest, most productive part of the Indian Subcontinent. Because of this potential the East India Tea Company was the very first foreign investor; over 200 years ago this British company started working in the Bengal. The historical wealth and prosperity will once again be a feature of this land. With a population of nearly 140 million, Bangladesh is one of the largest countries in the world. This represents a very large market in and of itself as well as being a huge, mostly underutilized labor force, which is one of the greatest natural resource of any country — its people. Labor costs are some of the lowest in the world for both the high-tech and highly educated in addition to skilled and trainable workers. In addition, the Government of Bangladesh, which is proving to be a stable democracy, continues to aggressively seek and foreign investment and has made many conditions favorable to foreign investment.
