Title: Beyond Transcription - Blazing New Trails
Presenters: Melissa Harper, Kathy Vome, Angela Griggs, Sheila Guston, Lucy Koch, Lori Pospiech, and Janine Woodhull
Session Description: As healthcare documentation specialists (HDSs) continue to reinvent themselves professionally and transition to new and exciting occupations, join us to hear from four individuals—former documentation specialists—who have taken that step. These individuals have applied their medical transcription skills and knowledge in their new and exciting positions.
This session will be of interest to students, educators, HDSs, independent contractors, business owners, supervisors, and managers in the healthcare documentation industry. Panelists will tell about their current positions, describe the HDS skills that helped them prepare for their roles, and tell about their prior education/experience that might have been helpful in these or similar roles. There will be ample time left for questions, and we encourage webinar attendees to engage with the panelists for answers to their own burning questions.
1. Explore facilities around the country incorporating healthcare documentation specialist skills into new roles.
2. Identify skills and experience applicable to new occupations.
3. Learn additional education recommendations for new opportunities.
