Home Based Medical Transcription

Many Moms are looking for home based businesses for a variety of valid reasons. There are stay at home Moms who want to earn the household a second income, those who want to get out of the rat race, Moms who don't want to send their kids to daycare all day everyday which will save a ton of money in itself, and many more reasons.

Looking for a work at home job can be overwhelming. Many people don't even know where to start. Moms are afraid of being scammed as scams are all over the place. They want to find a real way to work from home and earn money. Some Mom's find business opportunities such as direct sales, but end up investing a lot of time and money and hardly earning anything. So, where are the good paying, real home based businesses?

A completely legitimate, serious home based job is medical transcription and it pays well. A medical transcriptionist is a person who converts a doctor's voice dictation into a typewritten format. As long as there are patients who visit doctors, there will always be a need for medical transcriptionists. In fact, it's a lucrative field as the health care industry is a trillion dollar industry. Government economists predict that job growth for medical transcriptionists will be faster than average for all careers through 2014. An aging population will need more medical care and insurance companies will continue to require more documentation by doctors, and thus transcriptionists.

In order to be a medical transcriptionist, you need to be a fast typist, fluent in English, and you must take a medical transcription course. The course can be taken in the comfort of your own home at your own pace if you choose, and can be completed in as little as 6 months. If tuition cost is a deterrent, there are schools that offer flexible payment plans. You will need to learn medical, anatomy and physiology terminology so you can understand the complex medical terms that doctor's use. To become a proficient medical transcriptionist, you will need a lot of practice and hands on experience.

Once you complete your course, you can work for hospitals or private doctor's offices. More and more hospitals and clinics are hiring medical transcriptionists that work from their home because it saves them money. Some medical transcription schools offer assistance in finding a job once you graduate. You could also look in newspapers, online classifieds, and send letters and a business card to doctor's offices and hospitals.

This is something to get into only if you are serious and dedicated. There is a lot of studying, learning, and investment of time and money involved. If you work at home as a medical transcriptionist, you will need to purchase some equipment and reference books. This is an investment in your future and will be worth it once you are making a full time income working from the comfort of your own home in your favorite pink sweatsuit. As a new medical transciptionist your pay will be lower, but once you become an experienced, proficient medical transcriptionist your pay will increase. Medical transcriptionists earned an average salary of $29,880 in 2005. The average hourly wage was $14.36
