Medical Transcription Services (MTS) by Donella was founded in 1991 as a part-time, sole proprietor.  MTS took on several new clients, growing steadily, and changed its name to MTS of Kansas, LLC within the first few years.  Transcription was booming in the 90s, and workflow looked much different back then.  Who remembers tape dictation, pickup and delivery (by car) with printed transcription on sticky paper to be placed in the paper charts?  The good ole days!

MTS of Kansas, LLC quickly became a premier provider of high-quality medical transcription.

Medical Document Services, MDS of Kansas, LLC (S-Corp) was born! 

MTS of Kansas, LLC was growing rapidly and new services were on the horizon.  MTS rebranded to be inclusive of more than just transcription services.  Education programs were desperately needed due to lack of quality MTs, so discovery and research were underway.  We knew that quality medical document services were in demand, and that our services would be expanding.  

Education programs now closed.

After extensive research and curriculum buildouts, an online medical transcription program was created, and submitted to the national accreditation body for this industry.  Proudly, our programs passed the stringent requirements for Association for Healthcare Documentation Industry, AHDI, Accreditation for Medical Transcription.  

Within months of AHDI approval, we submitted our  curriculum to the Kansas Board of Regents and we were approved.

Education programs now closed.

The Medical Transcription Programs were repurposed to create the Medical Scribe Specialist Education Program, and MDS became a Certified Academic Partner with The American College of Medical Scribe Specialists.  

Because of changes within the industry and economy, the market became saturated and our education programs were later retired.

Medical Billing Services.

We began medical coding services for our first provider, which led to his transition to MDS for complete billing services.

Azalea Health Strategic Partner and VAR.

As we embarked on medical billing services, we needed the best Practice Management Software on the market.  This led us straight to Azalea Health!

MDS of Kansas, LLC became a certified woman-owned business through National Women Business Owners Corporation, NWBOC.

Medical Scribe Services.  MDS began with onsite medical scribes, and expanded to include virtual medical scribes.

The demand for medical scribes continued as providers in the clinical setting were experiencing extra burdens with documenting their encounters.  

MDS of Kansas proudly serves clinics, hospitals, surgery centers, and many specialities across the Midwest.  While medical transcription has certainly changed, we are still providing robust transcription services for many providers who prefer and appreciate the do’s and don’ts of the medical language, as well as the accuracy within their documentation.  Many providers understand they can operate with both EMR and dictation with transcription. 

To date, MDS provides much needed medical transcription services supporting the EMR workflow in addition to outsourced medical billing services and virtual and onsite medical scribe services.
