The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Medical Transcription Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” finds that the global medical transcription market size reached US$ 62.7 Billion in 2020. Medical transcription refers to the manual processing of voice reporting dictated by physicians and healthcare professionals into text formats. The voice notes and transcripts are converted into files through software incorporated with a data set of clinical phrasing. Medical transcription is used by both doctors and nurses to reduce the time spent documenting medical advice. It also plays an integral role in healthcare facilities as it provides historical records and documents to guide healthcare professionals to provide effective treatment to the patients. It can also be remotely accessed, making it easier for patients to record their problems and send them to the doctor if they are not physically available.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
