BRUNSWICK — The Oasis Health Network Inc. — a free health clinic that serves the Greater Brunswick area, providing healthcare to the uninsured residents of Bath, Brunswick, Harpswell and Freeport — got assistance recently when Woolwichbased New England Medical Transcription volunteered to provide free documentation for doctors.

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. “Being able to dictate rather than take an hourand a-half or two hours to write it all down has been a huge benefit.”

Four doctors are currently dictating to NEMT as part of the pilot project. All told, the network has 35 doctors who will eventually be added into the transcription system.

“We are members of this community too and we care a lot about the people here,” said Linda Sullivan, chief executive officer of NEMT.

The account is managed by Samantha Funston, of Bath. The Oasis Health Network Inc is a nonprofit organization funded solely by donations, a news release said.
