About Medical Transcription Careers in Wyoming
A medical transcriptionist is someone that a patient is likely never to see, but without whole teams of them it would be impossible for a hospital to function. A medical transcriptionist is responsible for the large quantity of paperwork necessary in offering a patient proper care, including patient records, billing information, and the vast array of medical codes necessary to ensure every procedure is necessary, approved, and paid for. Due to the increasing number of persons depending on full time medical care, demand for medical transcriptionists is rising in Wyoming, particularly in the region of Casper. Cheyenne also has a number of transcriptionists. In both cities, a transcriptionist will earn about $18,000-$42,000 per year depending on training, skill, and market conditions.
