On-site Transcription Support for HRSA
Whatever your opinions are about the Affordable Care Act, there is no denying the fact that healthcare and the quality of care remain a paramount issue for millions of Americans. It’s a topic Congress will continue to debate for years to come, and federal agencies like the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will be tasked with developing and implementing policies to help shape healthcare in this country. For over a year, NCC has played its own key part in this process by generating meeting summaries and verbatim transcripts of nearly 20 HRSA advisory meetings, which are used to generate exhaustive reports that eventually end up in the hands of HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell and Congress.
NCC has reliably provided on-site transcription support for HRSA in its Rockville, MD headquarters for four advisory committees: the National Advisory Council on Nurse Education and Practice (NACNEP), the Advisory Committee on Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Linkages (ACICBL), the Council on Graduate Medical Education (COGME), and the the Advisory Committee on Training in Primary Care Medicine and Dentistry (ACTPCMD). One of our expert hearing reporters captures all audio from the meetings while taking thorough notes used to generate a comprehensive meeting summary and verbatim transcript, which are delivered to HRSA shortly after the conclusion of the proceedings.
Our associate works in concert with a HRSA technical writer to develop a finalized meeting summary for each committee meeting, which is then posted on HRSA’s website. Furthermore, the summaries and transcripts NCC submits to HRSA are then utilized by the Agency to write up reports that go directly to Secretary Mathews Burwell and Congress.
We are proud that the work NCC produces is a dynamic tool in writing HRSA’s critical reports and helps develop recommendations for improving the quality and accessibility of health care. We are honored to continually make communication and collaboration happen for HRSA.
