Flexible timings and place of work and good remuneration are among factors that have made medical transcription a stable career option for thousands of Indians in recent times.
Medical transcription services from India are sought after by players in many other countries.
According to Suresh Nair, Head-India Operations of Nuance India, the prime reason is that Indians possess a good knowledge of languages and are quick learners of dialects and accents. This aids in efficient interpretation. Another reason is that medical transcription in India is more economical and cost-effective that in most other countries. These in turn have contributed towards the boom of medical transcription firms in India.
