Absolutely Accurate News

April 2015

April is Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month


What do boxer Muhammad Ali, actor Michael J. Fox, singer Johnny Cash, and the Reverend Bill Graham and over one million Americans have in common?   They all suffer from Parkinson's disease.


Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder that affects the nervous system.  The neurons in the brain break down or die, causing a decrease in dopamine.  The loss of dopamine causes the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.


Every person's symptoms and progression is different.  At first it may be a small tremor in a hand, but can progress to muscle rigidity and slowing of movement (bradykinesia). The face may show little expression, the arms stop swinging during walking, and balance is impaired.  Speech may become slurred or monotone. Automatic movements, such as blinking, swallowing, and digestion, decrease. As the disease progresses, dementia may set in. Also, depression is common as sufferers struggle to come to terms with their illness.

While the exact cause of Parkinson's disease is unknown, there are several risk factors.  Research has shown that specific genetic mutations may occur.  There is also the possibility that there may be environmental triggers, such as herbicides and tobacco smoke. Increased age and being male also increase the chances of Parkinson's disease.


Many sufferers have found relief in medicine.  The medication increases dopamine in the brain, helping the brain's neurotransmitters.  Sadly, the benefits of the drug decrease over time.  Surgery that implants electrodes to stimulate the brain has helped improve symptoms of those who significantly suffer. 


There is a need for more research.  Currently, scientists are exploring gene therapy and neural transplantation as other innovative therapies.  One area of focus is the presence of Lewy bodies that clump in the brain. 


Transcription Plus, LLC has seen great strides in medical innovation since our beginning 26 years ago.  We would like to see the same positive progress for patients with Parkinson's disease

"From a dollars and cents standpoint, Transcription Plus has reduced my overhead. Employee insurance benefits, bookkeeping, payroll contributions, office space and equipment requirements are all taken for granted. This service has many hidden cost-saving benefits that I didn't realize until my accountant made the observation. I have saved time and energy, which can be channeled towards my patients."

Maximize your schedule with appointment reminders!


Contacting all of your patients to remind them of an upcoming appointment (or the need to make one) is as quick and easy as either faxing or emailing your Patient Day Sheet (generated electronically by your E.M.R. system or printed from your computer.) There are no log-ins; no user IDs; no passwords to remember! THAT SIMPLE!

Benefits of Client/Patient Reminders:

  • Reduce client/patient no-show rate by as much as 1/3 and increase timely cancellations.
  • Send customized messages based on appointment type.
  • Increase revenue.
  • Keep on schedule with improved arrival time.
  • Re-capture lost staff and physician time by automating client communication.
  • Better managed patient health.
  • Elimination of expensive paper-based mailing campaigns.
  • Secure and compliant patient messaging.
  • Email, voice and text notifications available. 
  • Daily call result report, sent directly to your office.

Depending on the size of your client base, the minimal effort of simply forwarding your Patient Day Sheet and extremely small weekly cost could decrease patient no-shows by 30%; equating to a possible 30% increase in revenue when those empty slots are filled with viable appointments.....all without interrupting your busy staff's priority tasks. There are NO set-up fees.   


Simplify your life's conversations with documentation!
Crisp and clear, high volume audio recording of any telephone conversation can be yours with no additional equipment required. There are many applications for this service. Physicians, Attorneys, Law Enforcement and Business Professionals have conversations with patients, opposing Attorneys, clients or initiate conference calls. All information discussed can be recorded and documented so there is no question as to the accuracy of what was discussed.  This service is even beneficial for an individual's personal use. We live in a very litigious society. Whether you have a verbal agreement with a contractor or with family and friends, there is no need to be deceived or swindled or have any controversy regarding those agreements. Never rely on memory regarding exactly what was discussed in a telephone conversation again.


You are able to record a conference with multiple parties too!
