The problems are familiar. Each year healthcare providers are forced to reduce fixed overhead. You struggle to maintain an updated facility and keep pace with the technological advances of modern information systems. At the same time, recruitment efforts are hindered by continually shrinking budgets, and it becomes tougher and tougher to find and keep qualified people. Guaranteeing around the clock, 7-day-a-week coverage becomes an impossible challenge. Faced with unexpected sick days, scheduled vacations, and a mounting backlog, billing is delayed by lagging output.
Many facilities are solving this chronic dilemma by outsourcing their transcription services to Continuum. Outsourcing to qualified specialists improves dictation outflow, dramatically reduces costs, and maintains current staff. We provide state-of-the-art equipment with no capital investment by the health care facility, and guaranteed 24/7 coverage. The benefits of improved dictation output are realized, while all the administrative headaches are handled by us.
By outsourcing to Continuum, you can enjoy outstanding professional transcription results while eliminating the unnecessary expenses involved with in-house transcription services, such as:
-Full-time Employment and Management salaries including taxes and benefits
-Facility expenses - turnover costs, space per employee
-Recruitment expenses - training costs, advertising costs
-Equipment expense - TAT delays, dictation/transcription machines and maintenance
-Interim outsourcing - during employee holidays or unexpected sick days
