Enloe Medical Center finds work for transcriptionists
Chico Enterprise Record

The 22 medical transcriptionists who work at Enloe Medical Center are well aware of the trend that threatens their jobs, but for now they have plenty of work, said Donna Lohse, director of health information management/medical records at Enloe. The trend is for doctors to enter their evaluations of patients, orders for treatment and other information directly into electronic medical records. Until now, it’s been common for doctors to record or write out the information, which was then transcribed by hospital employees.
