Verizon Business to Build IT Platform for Medical Transcription

Verizon Business has been selected by a newly-formed Medical Transcription Service Consortium (MTSC) to build a new IT platform for the secure exchange of digitized transcriptions of physician-dictated patient notes.

The MTSC - of which Verizon is a founding member - will develop a common framework for the digitization of transcribed dictated records, including interoperability standards for the seamless and secure exchange of data among health care providers. The new IT platform is a key part of this initiative. The platform, which is expected to be available later this year, will leverage Verizon Business' broad portfolio of advanced IT, hosting and security solutions, as well as the company's global IP network.
