Crazy Productivity Tips that Actually Work!

Everything from music to Facebook, the secret to productivity is in the very things we are asked to avoid!Check out these tips on increasing productivity, the crazy way…

1. Listen to music, dude!
If you have a headset on, maybe it won’t go down well with the boss. But then, according to a study at the University of Windsor, Canada, listening to music during work helps people finish their work faster and with a better quality than those who don’t. But if your boss gets to see your head banging before he sees the great work you have accomplished, don’t blame it on us if he fires you!

2. Facebook your way to glory…
Mindless tasks such as checking out those nice red pop ups on that blue Facebook ribbon could trick your brain into thinking that it has done something worthwhile. Simply put, it gives you a brain boost. Moreover, a study by Evolvon data from Fortune 500 companies showed a correlation between output per employee and usage of social networks. According to the study, “Employees who belonged to more than five social networks had a 1.6 percent higher sales conversion than their counterparts and a 2.8 percent lower average call time.”

Before you get confused, let’s tell you that social media helps build more rewarding networks that assist in closing sales and generating leads more efficiently. But unless you are in the marketing field, Facebook and the likes could prove to be a distraction. Be smart and keep them to the minimum!


3. Do something impossible
Remember the game of Truth or Dare we all played at some point in life? Doing a daring or impossible task makes other tasks comparatively easier to achieve. By overwhelming the brain with an impossible task, we can condition it into thinking that any other task (especially the loads of work you are piled up with!) is easier to accomplish. It is a great way to increase brain capacity. So the next time you are handed a task which you think is hard, turn to your friend or colleague and ask him to give you a dare before setting out to finish your business! 

4. Use technology to steal some nap time ;)
We all know that a short ten-minute nap increases productivity. Let technology do the talking and streamline your tasks using productivity apps, reminders and schedulers. That way, you can have more time to do the napping. But mind you, don’t sleep through your entire work day or else that will be the only thing you will be left with to do!!!

Medical transcriptionists vary in experience and skill and may not be well versed with some medical terms. Here is a compilation of some very funny transcription mistakes you could note to avoid being on the receiving end of the laughter!

Location isn’t a Matter for Coding and RCM -Avontix

The technological developments in the healthcare management industry have facilitated and increased the outsourcing of medical coding and RCM among many healthcare facilities. The healthcare facilities need not bother about from where the support for their RCM and medical coding jobs is coming from. What they need to think about is only if these service providers have the latest technology, training and subject expertise. These days most of the outsourcing companies are well equipped with high-speed internet connectivity, coding and RCM software with security features that make the importance of the location of the service provider negligible.
The lower reimbursement rates and diminishing margins are forcing the different healthcare facilities to think for ways to reduce costs. One of the best ways for hospitals and other facilities to minimize costs is outsourcing their medical coding jobs along with their revenue cycle management. The significant task for a hospital is to identify …

With ever-changing legal and medical requirements, it is mandatory that all the procedures and processes performed by healthcare practitioners are recorded accurately not just for evidential purposes but for future references also. However, it is not possible for the physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to keep documenting each and every process performed by them in a written format. Hence, physicians take advantage of the technological advancements and record the procedures performed by them in audio files using an electronic device. Although these can serve as records, it is not easy to comprehend a physician’s voice file when the information is required. So, these voice files are transcribed into electronic documents and this process of transcribing is called medical transcription or healthcare documentation.  
The voice files given by the physicians for healthcare documentation include their office visits, emergency room …
