OST 2613C - Medical Transcription III


2 hours Lecture, 1 hour Lab, 3 credits
Lower-Division College Credit
Prerequisites: OST 2612C
AA Elective: No
This course is a continuation of OST 2612C Medical Transcription II. Students continue transcribing, proofreading and editing healthcare documents with advanced-level dictation covering the specialties of orthopedics, cardiology, neurology, gastroenterology, and others. Students apply advanced medical terminology and are introduced to transcription from increasingly difficult dictation situations due to accent, speed, background noise, and dictating style. Students meet increasingly difficult standards of speed and accuracy while continuing to demonstrate proper application of the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity Book of Style rules and guidelines. The study of human disease processes continues with emphasis on diagnostic and laboratory testing techniques, recognition of normal versus abnormal values, and appropriate testing and treatment protocols. Industry technology is explored, including word expanders and speech recognition tools.
