Articles by George Heymont

The following articles were written for the "Transcription Trends" column in For The Record Magazine, a healthcare information management industry publication, from 1999-2003. Since their original publication, many of the companies referred to have been acquired, merged, or gone out of business. Many technological references (especially to earlier generations of computer chips, fax/modems, etc.) will seem quaint -- if not downright ancient. The articles are republished here for your enjoyment. Enjoy!
