Transcription QA

How do you perform transcription QA? Do you still have transcription in
house? If so, do you have an FTE that performs QA?

Thank you.

    Most transcriptionists work from home. Spvsr in transcription area performs QA checks on each employee each pay period.
    We have 14 transcriptionists.

    For those not using Epic, a few providers still use dictation which is outsourced. I have only one transcription coordinator on site who requires minimal QA checks. I review a sample of reports every quarter.

    Hello Sheila and talkers,

    Most of our transcriptionists work from home. QA is performed on-site
    by a Senior Transcriptionist. A sample of reports from each
    transcriptionist are reviewed monthly. A quality rate of 98.0% is
    required. If the transcriptionist falls below 98.0%, his/her work is
    reviewed the following week until the threshold is met.

    What do you use as a guide for review to meet that percentage? Can you
