NEMT provides free transcription to Oasis free clinic

NEMT provides free transcription to Oasis free clinic

 

The Oasis Health Network, Inc. of Brunswick, Maine got some much-needed assistance recently when New England Medical Transcription

(NEMT) volunteered to provide free documentation for doctors.

Oasis Health Network, Inc. is a free health clinic that serves the greater Brunswick area, providing healthcare to the uninsured residents of the Bath, Brunswick, Harpswell, Freeport area.

NEMT is a Woolwich-based medical transcription company that transcribes doctors' voice recordings into patient records.

Denise Mungen-Kerina, business manager at Oasis Health Network, said the free transcription saves doctors hours each day.

“NEMT has made four providers very, very happy,” she said. “Nothing that we have here is modern - they were writing all the patient notes on paper. Being able to dictate rather than take an hour-and-a-half or two hours to write it all down has been a huge benefit.”

Lawrence of Arabia at Dreamland Theater

Sagadahoc Preservation's Dreamland Theater will screen Moonrise Kingdom on January 17th at 7pm at the Winter Street Center, in Bath. Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif star in this multi-Oscar winning production based on the exploits of legendary British soldier T.E. Lawrence. Lawrence helps unite rival Arab tribes and then organizes them into a rebellion against the Turks during World War One. Definitely one of the greatest epic movies of all time. Alec Guiness, Jack Hawkins, Anthony Quinn, Jose Ferrer and Claude Rains also costar. This week's movie is sponsored by Brick Store Antiques in Bath.

Movies are shown every Thursday at 7pm at the Dreamland Theater at the Winter Street Center in Bath. The suggested donation is $5. The 2012-13 season is underwritten by Jorgensen Landscaping. Movies are generously donated by River Bottom Video in Bath. All proceeds go toward the maintenance of the Winter Street Center.
