About Silent Type

Thirty Years Young:
It’s Silent Type’s 30th year in business. What does that mean for you?

  • A history of documentation excellence
  • A commitment to cutting edge technology
  • An unbending commitment to client success


In the late 70s and early 80s, a nurse named Marilyn Trapani was disturbed by the lack of organization and completeness in patient documentation practices. And as she saw patient notes and other records becoming more critical for reimbursement, she also saw that hospitals needed help gathering and organizing clinical documentation.

Marilyn recognized that discipline and exactness in dictation and transcription, coupled with technology, could improve documentation by leaps and bounds. And in 1982, her vision became reality when Silent Type was born.

Over the next 30 years, Silent Type has experienced healthcare history firsthand: Cycles among providers of mergers and acquisitions and divestitures and reorganizations, the rise of managed care, prospective payment systems and now, ICD-10. And amid all the upheaval, Silent Type not only survived—it thrived.

What has made Silent Type successful? Sticking with its original vision of documentation excellence and cutting-edge technology has helped. But in the final analysis, an unbending commitment to its clients has been the key. Silent Type’s success depends upon the success of its clients.
