In One End and Out The Other

Most people take the ability to communicate for granted, much as they assume that their respiratory and digestive processes will always function perfectly. However, when changes occur in pulmonary, bowel, and bladder function, it becomes necessary to adjust what goes in the body in order to have better control over what comes out of the body.

As physicians, you will routinely demand that your patients have their blood, urine, and stool examined to determine whether such tests are "within normal limits," or to indicate the presence of a foreign substance, a chemical imbalance, or an important clinical warning sign.

A large part of this blog is going to focus on educating you about what you send into a digital dictation system so you can understand how it comes out in printed and/or electronic form. Most importantly, it will help you understand how to adjust the way you dictate so that your words come back to you in "fully-formed" reports.
