Career Step, the nation's leading medical transcription school, provides students with access to new online medical documentation reference tool, Benchmark KB. Developed by experts at the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) and transcription industry technology veterans at InterFix, BenchMark KB brings together an extensive collection of online medical transcription reference materials into a single application to help Career Step students prepare for positions and meet growing demand in the health care documentation industry.
Springville, Utah (PRWEB) January 24, 2008 -- Career Step is pleased to announce a partnership with InterFix to use BenchMark KB (Knowledge Base), the industry's first application designed to increase the quality and speed of medical transcription through the use of a centralized, standardized electronic health information resource. This product is available to all new students as part of their training package beginning in January of 2009.

Since most transcriptionists are paid based upon production, time spent searching through resources is time spent not transcribing and thus, not being paid. With Benchmark KB students will have access to all of these resources in one place. And unlike print materials, KB resources are automatically updated so students never have to worry about the accuracy of the information. The KB was created to save time and effort, which translates to efficiency and increased pay. Career Step is proud to offer this useful resource to their students in a continuing effort to provide the tools and skills they will use in their workplace.
