FAIRLAWN, Ohio, Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- MTEC, the leading online Medical Transcription and Editing training program, proudly announces the January 2011 release of its NexGen Speech Recognition Editing and Medical Transcription Program. In response to industry demands for greater clinical documentation expertise, MTEC is moving their curriculum to the next level. The new NexGen program is the first step in this important industry migration and is being provided to students at the same price as current curriculum.
"Many online programs lack the essential component of hands-on, real-world technology experience," mentions Sean Carroll, CEO of MTEC. The NexGen program integrates industry-leading speech recognition software into existing, online curriculum. "Research with our employers indicates these skills are the very foundation to a future in the field of clinical documentation and key to student success in live, production environments," Carroll adds.
"Our graduates already have the highest satisfaction level in the industry, and now they will get the technology foundation to expand their skill set and prepare them for the changing world of clinical documentation," mentions Kim Buchanan, CMT, AHDI-F, Director of Education for MTEC.
The new NexGen program provides a seat license for the speech-enabled Fuzion™ medical training platform, the RMT credentialing exam as the final exam; as well as, mobile learning capabilities with all electronic books. MTEC also prepares their students for the new healthcare environment by orienting them to the Electronic Health Record (EHR) as well as educating them on HIPAA standards and information privacy and security compliance.
