The Story of Us ~ Part 7 in a Series A Day in the Life of a Transcriptionist
On August 21st, 2017, a group of our Copytalk, LLC scribes stood outside, looking up at the sky through specialty
glasses. Our Athens office was privileged enough to experience 99 percent of the rare total solar eclipse sailing
across the sky that day, and our office celebrated in style. There were glasses available for those who wanted to

The Story of Us ~ Part 3 in a Series A Day in the Life of a Transcriptionist
So many times, we see the words privacy and security lumped together, especially when we talk about technology. It's easy, then, to think of them as a single idea, when in fact, they're two very distinct concepts. In 2018, both privacy and security mean a lot to you, our clients, and to your clients, whom we protect by extension.
The Story of Us ~ Part 2 in a Series A Day in the Life of a Transcriptionist
Whenever someone asks what my job is, I used to tiptoe around the subject. I'm not ashamed of what I do. In fact, I'm the only one of my friends that doesn't complain about going to work in the morning. I plan on coming in to work until they tell me I can't anymore. The reason I used to tiptoe around the subject is that for the longest time I didn't have a great answer to the question I always get: "Why don't they just use a speech-to-text program?" And I'm sure our potential customers have thought that as well. "Why spend a little extra on having a human do this when I could pay once for a computer program?"
The Story of Us ~ Part 1 in a Series A Day in the Life of a Transcriptionist
We've all been there before, the awkward training period when you start a new job. Maybe you had to wear a silly hat while you learned what was and wasn't okay to put in the deep fryer. Maybe you had to learn how to use expensive, complicated equipment, inevitably using it incorrectly in front of your boss's boss. Maybe you even, as once happened to me, had to wear a giant button that said, "ASK ME ANYTHING," long before you were ready to be asked anything. It seems that no matter the job, the training period is tedious, long and just plain unenjoyable. It's not easy on you, the trainer, your manager and certainly not your customers.

"Take a Letter" Isn’t What It Used to Be
Dictation and transcription services have been a valuable business tool for many years. These services continue to be important-and they need to be flexible, accessible and fast.
There is a wide array of service providers to choose from, but how you choose is as important as whom you choose. With the advent of big data and the corresponding wave of complex legislation-HIPPA, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, etc.-sanctions for noncompliance can be onerous. Some providers are sophisticated when it comes to security, some less so. You can't afford to use a provider that cannot clearly demonstrate its understanding and use of data security protocols.

How technology is changing the way producers work
...Enter Copytalk, which avails producers of this service from a smartphone or tablet. The company transcribes dictated notes at one of its "secure" facilities - FINRA registered transcriptionists work without Internet access and are monitored by quality assurance teams - then emails the finished product to producers or enters notes directly into their CRM app.
Copytalk CEO Maree Moscati says the service enables producers to use otherwise unproductive "windshield time" (as when stuck in rush-hour traffic) to capture client conversations while they're still fresh. An ancillary benefit is the ability to satisfy compliance requirements by detailing the reasons for plan recommendations.
