The company currently employs 4,000 medical language specialists (MLS) in India and around 12,000 across the world. On Tuesday, it opened a 600-seater facility in Hyderabad, which is an add-on to its existing network of facilities in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Coimbatore and Mumbai.
The Hyderabad facility will accommodate 200 people each, across three shifts.
The company has invested close to $7 million on its India operations in the last two years of its operations in the country.
The medical transcription industry in India is poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate of over four per cent to reach $1 billion by 2020.
