Re: Ontario to outsource some procedures to specialised clinics

said by Gone:

One should also remember that filth is not limited to clinics. Not by a long shot.

Thank you. I was reading this thread for the first time prepared to post a response into elwoodblues insinuation that specialized clinics will hire low wage earners when the 'official' medical industry does the same.

I wonder if he even knows how many doctors outsource their transcriptions to India...

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

Do they ever.

It started in 2009 and now it's pretty much a standard amongst specialists. A doctor evaluates their charts, records their transcription into a voice recorder then emails or uploads the MP3's overseas and by morning they're sent back in .doc format.

Some investigations were done a few years back regarding privacy concerns but since the usage is so widespread and there hasn't yet been any known issues, all's been quiet on the government front for a few years now.

If I found out my medical records were being disclosed to individuals not bound by the Personal Health Information Protection Act I would file a complaint with the IPC.
