Description

Transcribes the audio from a medical dictation or conversation and applies any additional Request Parameters you choose to include in your request. In addition to many standard transcription features, Amazon Transcribe Medical provides you with a robust medical vocabulary and, optionally, content identification, which adds flags to personal health information (PHI). To learn more about these features, refer to How Amazon Transcribe Medical works. To make a StartMedicalTranscriptionJob request, you must first upload your media file into an Amazon S3 bucket; you can then specify the S3 location of the file using the Media parameter. You must include the following parameters in your StartMedicalTranscriptionJob request:
  • region: The Amazon Web Services Region where you are making your request. For a list of Amazon Web Services Regions supported with Amazon Transcribe, refer to Amazon Transcribe endpoints and quotas.
  • MedicalTranscriptionJobName: A custom name you create for your transcription job that is unique within your Amazon Web Services account.
  • Media (MediaFileUri): The Amazon S3 location of your media file.
  • LanguageCode: This must be en-US.
  • OutputBucketName: The Amazon S3 bucket where you want your transcript stored. If you want your output stored in a sub-folder of this bucket, you must also include OutputKey.
  • Specialty: This must be PRIMARYCARE.
  • Type: Choose whether your audio is a conversation or a dictation.
