Dictation Options

While the call-in dictation option is the most commonly used dictation choice, providers are not limited to this. Line by Line also caters to those individuals who prefer to use a handheld dictation unit or speech mic.

Toll-Free Phone-In

Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, doctors and their staff have the capability of calling virtually from anywhere in the United States. With easy-to-understand keypad features, this option can be set up in a matter of minutes and used from any landline or mobile device. Simply fill out the contact form or call our toll-free number to get set up. This option can be interchanged with other dictation options, as well, should you and your staff prefer one method most of the time, but need quick access when away from the office or home. With this option, all dictation is recorded on a secure 128-bit encrypted server that is, in turn, transcriptionist accessible. The dictation is stored for 90 days and then archived.

Digital Handheld Dictation

There are numerous brands of recorders all varying in cost and quality, but the great news is that with the implementation of our new web portal we are no longer limited as to what audio file types are transcribable. With this dictation option, dictation is recorded digitally on the handheld unit. Once the provider is ready to transmit the audio files, the handheld unit is docked or connected to a USB connection and either the web portal or our secure file transmission application is used to transfer the files to our secure server. This method of dictation can be performed and transmitted from anywhere around the world as long as there is an internet connection. The dictation is stored on our Line by Line servers for 90 days and then archived. The original voice files either remain on the handheld unit or are stored in an alternate location on the personal PC depending on the method of transfer you choose.

Speech Mike

For those physicians, such as radiologists, who need a hands-free option, this is the perfect dictation option for you. With the option to control record and pause with the push of a pedal, doctors are able to view images and record their dictation via this method. Software is configured on a personal PC and when a voice file is completed and ready for transmission; it is as simple as a click. The voice file is sent securely, HIPAA compliantly, to our servers whereby the dictation becomes available to the transcriptionist. These voice files are stored on the server for 90 days and then archived.
