Students Go Hands-On with Advanced Speech Recognition Software at Same Great Price, Prep for New Clinical Documentation Careers.
Fairlawn, OH (December 9, 2010) – 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.

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-
