i would definitely start out with clinic notes first to get a good base.
You need to try to get as much learning as you can in an unrushed way. When you do acute care notes, you are having all medical specialties pushed on you all at once.
Adminstrative Assistants and VanBelkum. Good companies, good pay!
WHERE ARE THE GOOD COMPANIES??
All I see is negative! Where is the positive or are they the ones that keep quiet to keep their great jobs to themselves (believe me, I'd do the same thing! ) ..... but THROW US A BONE, willya??
Would appreciate suggestions for companies who pay for both spaces and headers with a decent platform. Wondering if there is such a thing anymore.
So, should I assume Transhealth is the only company out there that pays for spaces, headers and has a good platform???
Any good companies out there that
do hire SEs? Also, is MQ the only company that uses DEP?
Okay guys call me an idiot for not knowing that Medware has an India division! Now, I'll risk the flaming yet again.....Can you recommend companies who offer employee status without outsourcing to India?
Good health insurance coverage at a reasonable rate for single person, nice organized people to deal with, paid on time, and the sooner they could put me to work, the better!
Please feel free to email me privately. My address should be somewhere on this page!
Are there any GOOD companies out there willing to
hire people that aren't exactly newbies anymore, but don't have the 3, 5, or 10 years most companies are looking for? I have been working for about 16 months (SE) as an at home MT for a big national company, but would really like to go elsewhere, either as an SE or an IC. Any info would be appreciated!
Good companies for IC or SE? (sm)
I am looking for a company that will let me work to my best potential - that being working on the same account(s) with the same dictators (say less than 30) so that when I spend months creating macros and finally get up to making $25+ an hour, I don't get yanked from that account just to start the process all over. I can produce up to 400 lph and send almost nothing to QA when I am allowed to get familiar with an account(s)/dictators and then stay on that account. I have been with 5 companies in the last 6 years; same thing every time. No matter how good the company, I can't and won't work this way. I am very good at what i do, I just need to find my place. Six years experience in mostly multispecialty clinic with a couple years of acute care (no ops, but all other work types), QA scores above 99% (on familiar accounts), need a flexible schedule, and when I meet my line counts for the day, I want the option of deciding whethere I continue to work for the other 3-4 hours that day. Any ideas??? TIA
Any good companies out there?
anyone know of any good MT companies
I am looking for a part-time position with a great company, large or small, that does clinic work...specifically ortho and family practice. Can you either post or send an e-mail w/the name of the company?
Thanks so much!!!!
I'm new to the board so I'm sure this has been listed before, but can anyone tell me what some good Transcription companies are? I'm interested in an IC position where I can work when and how much I want. I'm already an IC for a local company, but I need to supplement my income. I'm looking for a company that just has a good overall feel to it. Any help would be appreciated.
I absolutely agree that this is not a hobby. The other side of the coin though is services want the cost savings of ICs and then are screaming when they do not get the same level of committment as they would from an employee. A true IC should be making enough to offset the lack of benefits and of course have a professional attitude to their commitment. Instead we are getting women/men? who are willing to take less without benefits because their spouses can cover them, and then want to do it as a little hobby on the side. Bottom line, everyone gets what they pay for.
Probably because there are not that many good companies for QA
and those two are known to be good companies. That's just a wild guess but I know as fact both companies have an excellent reputation with their QA staff. TransHealth is high on the list also for having good benefits.
Thank you Anon. At least someone is courteous here in helping out a newcomer.
As I said it isn't good, but still is what most companies
are paying, though some pay even less than that.
I job hopped until I found a great fit. I knew within 2 weeks at each company what would give me what I wanted. It took a long time to get past the hype from recruiters, supervisors, etc., but these are my conclusions.
Pay per line is very important, but how is that line determined? No spaces but pay same as companies who count spaces? Dump the company.
A smooth platform to work on. It does no good to have great tech support if you have to use tech support a lot. It takes a minimum of 10-15 minutes for each call you have to make. That cuts your production by 1/6 to 1/4 during the hour you have the problem. If you call tech support 4 times a day, that's almost an hour of nonproductive time. Dump the company.
Mouse clicking. Learn the keyboard commands and if they do not work, dump the company. Every time your hands leave the key board to reach for that mouse you have cost yourself a few lines.
Absolute verbatim - you will never make enough macros or shortcuts to get a line count. Dump the company.
Two weeks free work - don't even give them 1 day without pay. Run.
Benefits - good, but not the end of the world. You can get insurance at reasonable rates most of the time, or at least comparable to what you would have to pay at the companies. Give insurance minimal consideration. Paid time off? Same thing. Paid downtime because of company problems - consider this company- they care about you and are willing to accept responsibility for the problems.
Big Brother watching you all the time? Run fast.
E-mails half answered or you get an inappropriate answere? Run away, you are not important and no one in management will ever listen to you.
No raises? Forget it unless they offer incentive pay.
No incentive pay? If no raises forget it.
Have to buy a lot of expensive equipment from them every time they make a change? Absolutely not!
No direct deposit? Depends on reliability and how fast a check is replaced, but direct deposit is cheap for employer now, and they should offer overnight delivery if no direct deposit.
It is far cheaper for a company to hire an IC than an employee (self employment tax is one of the big differences) so as an IC you should make more.
Fancy parties and a lot of travel by management to show how much they care? Why don't they take that money and put it in payroll and pay the MTs a little more per line?
My $0.03 for the day.
Ditto! Well said!
Any good IC companies out there?
I am seriously considering purchasing my own equipment and telling MQ where to go, after working for them 10 years, 100% QA and still not even at 9 cpl. I am wondering what some of the good IC companies are.
Basing your lack of success in finding a good company over Nov and Dec is starting with your back against the wall. You probably will hear from some of those companies in the coming months as the work once again flows.
Have someone check over your resume. There may be something you can do on that end to stand out better with prospective companies.
You have to do your research on your own. Asking on these boards is inviting thousands to look at the same companies with you. Look at local area (2 hour radius) first. Go to yahoo yellow pages and look up transcription companies in your area. Make phone calls. My best paying sub account was not something I found online.
I love it at MDI. You might also consider Landmark. They are considered to be good, honest people, and do not offshore. A friend of mine swears by Acusis.
good for you! I don't get these companies sm
that want you to bust your fanny, give you NO account specifics and then gripe when you do the best you can.
As far as the little words in between, I am assuming you are talking about the and's and the's and it's, etc. This stuff doesn't change the meaning of a sentence.
If more MTs would do what you were doing, we could clean this profession up. Problem is people need their jobs and can't quit without a plan.......at least most can't. Like you, I quit without a plan too, but years ago I made a plan in case push came to shove. Well push they did and shoved I did!
There are good companies out there sm
But, unfortunately, this is not one of them...I wish you luck finding a good company to work for. That is very unprofessional, and personally, I am glad that I did not go through the testing process. Hang in there.
First Choice and QT. Both good companies, too.sm
I recently moved to an area that doesn't offer broadband yet, and I've been using dailup with these 2 companies since. If you can stand how looooonnnng it takes to download with dialup, suggest you give either of these companies a call. Transmitting back the transcribed reports doesn't pose any problems, for some reason. Not sure if either has a lot of radiology work, though. Definitely worth checking. Good luck!
DSG and GIMT are 2 good companies.
Talk to Jodi Walsh at DSG or Mary Shortman at GIMT. I currently work at both.
all companies have good points and all have bad
I have been with DSG for over a year. I have worked for other companies as well. Every company had their good points and their bad. I think it is just what you are looking for in a company. DSG pays on time, their line rate is decent, there is plenty of work (except during the slow times, but everyone goes through those) communication is always open. I have never had sound issues. There are good dictators and bad dictators, along with ESL dictators. Overall, they are decent and the MT Supervisor for DSG is the best I have ever met.
No you are not defeated. There are some good companies out there.
Both are good companies -- depends upon what you are looking for. sm
With MDI-MD, you are a statutory employee, meaning they take out FICA, but not your state or federal taxes, and there are no benefits. You do not have to adhere to a rigid schedule. You make a commitment for x-number of lines per day and have a 24-hour window in which to do those lines. Every 2 months you submit a calendar telling them which days you will work. If I recall correctly 2 weekends are required per month. There is no extra pay for holidays or weekends, but their pay scale is way above average. Some accounts are internet accounts, and for some you need a C-phone with unlimited long distance. They use Bayscribe as a platform, which is very easy to use and has a built-in expander. The liaisons and QA people are quite pleasant and easy to work with, and Dorothy cares about people.
With TransTech, you are an employee, and you are required to work a scheduled shift, Sunday through Thursday or Tuesday through Sunday, I believe. However, unlike the poster noted below, there IS flexibility -- all you have to do is email management and let them know you need to make a change that day. You get abou 3.3-something PTO hours per pay period, which amounts to about 11 days a year, which increases the longer you are there. They have reasonably priced insurance -- medical, dental, vision -- and have just recently added a 401k plan. The pay scale is a bit lower, but they have a nice incentive tier that is easy to achieve. They use ExText as the platform, which is Word-based and very easy to use. QA and management staff are friendly and supportive, and management seems to truly care about the employees. Again, it is a great company as well.
Hope this helps!
Any good companies that pay weekly?
I am an experienced MT with 10+ years under my belt. I need to find a position that pays weekly if at all possible. We have relocated due to my husband's job so I am on the hunt. Thank you for your help and time.
Good companies to work for.
Can anyone list 3 or more companies that are really good to work for? I am looking for employe status. I just left a company where I really got burned and ended up getting laid off because of no work for WEEKS. I really want a reliable company and any helpful information would be great. I have 5 years experience. Any advice would be so helpful. Thank you for your time.
Does anyone know of good companies hiring for QA... sm
.... with hourly pay? Thanks.
Any good companies who pay bi-weekly
I am looking for a good company that pays bi-weekly - fair pay - good platform - decent accounts!
Any good Editing companies?
Does anybody know of any good VR editing companies taht have lots of work with employee status?
Good IC status only companies?
Does anybody know of any good IC status only companies? I currently work at a hospital, but I have to come back home to work due to my husband's military career. I really need a flexible schedule since I have a three year old with special needs.
Any good companies who might be hearing and
for a new company, but really want to apply only at ones who use voice recognition as opposed to straight transcribing. I love ASR now, and that's the only reason I've been staying at my current job. Are there other companies who use ASR? Thanks for any leads.
Are there any good companies that pay on time?
Maybe list the bad companies instead of the good
I don't really blame the person that has the great job for not wanting to post it on the board. I had a great job at one time and they lost their big accounts and I lost the job. Now I got a good job, but the pay isn't much unfortunately, but the work is good and steady.
Maybe people rather wouldn't mind listing the names of companies they worked for and got burned or hated the job for whatever reasons.
If there are any good companies they are few and far between unfortunately. I was making more per line 10 to 20 years ago than now. Our rates have not increased. The only difference is we are on computers now instead of typewriters. I don't think any of these companies care about us as people. We are just money makers for them. That's their bottom line. I'd love to know how much they are getting per line from the hospitals. Probably 16 cents a line and we are getting 8. It really stinks. The only way to make more is to work more and more. And then when you work like 8 hours overtime and see your check it really is disgusting how little it added up to. At least in the days where we were employees at hospitals our overtime pay would be so great that it made it worth it.
this is good to know. Keep posting about these companies.
the issue of good companies
I for one have been with MDI for 4 years, so as far as companies to work for, I have no clue - figured I'd be with them long term. Having said that, can you guys and gals out there who are up on companies because of recent searches tell us off the top of your heads who the BAD companies are, the scammers and no-payers. That would be a huge help.
Good news to hear! At least some companies are
trying! Best of luck to you in 2006!
Medquist and Medware good companies? NO.
They may be good for their stockholders, but they are not good for their employees....what kind of a list is this anyway?
Know of any good companies hiring PT Radiology? (nm)
Any good companies that use Chart Script? sm
Are there any good companies out there that use Chart Script? I am most familiar with CS but I have also worked on ExText and found it user-friendly as well. Thanks.
Good point - companies that constantly run ads
Who are the good companies that do ASR and pay a decent rate?
I have been an MT a long time - 19 yrs and I am interested in learning ASR, but I need to get informed and rate, companies, realist expectations on lph, etc. If you can help me out and share your knowledge, I would really appreciate it. TIA. I am going to try to line my e-mail in here, so you can e-mail me if you would like.
Oh, THAT! BTDT!!! Good luck. There are better companies out there. nm
I have talked to 3 companies that I really like and seem to have a lot of good posts here. sm
Once I sorted through the nasty and bitter posters and then the cheerleaders, for lack of a better word, a few companies seem to be truly good companies to work for. All I am looking for are a few specifics that will tilt the balance for me. I do want to say that all 3 know that I am talking to the other 2 and I was surprised at the reactions. ALL 3 of them only had nice things to say about the other 2. They did not bash those companies or try to sell me on theirs, just gave me facts. I was impressed by that. There were 4 that I originally had narrowed it down to, but one of them went on and on about how the others were horrible and I would be better going to them.
Here's what I need to know about MDI Maryland, Keystrokes and TT. I just want the facts, not the bitterness. I would really like answers from MTs who have been at one or more of them for more than 6 months. I think that 6 months is a good evaluation period.
Do they pay on time?
Is the pay correct? If not, do they fix it right away?
Do they run out of work on a regular basis, not just during slow periods?
Can you reach a manager when you need one?
Does IS return your calls?
Do they give feedback if you ask for it?
Do they send work offshore that you know of (worked for a company that said no but really did)?
Do you get a good feeling from them/gut instinct?
Would you refer your friends or family to them if qualified?
Thank you in advance. I am trying to decide by Monday and these are things that current and past employees can answer. Please do not give me vague answers like don't go there or they're great. I really am having a hard time choosing.
Does anyone know of any good companies that offer IC status and little ASR?
I'm working for MQ right now as flexible part-time but thinking I want to go back to IC status. I just have this feeling that things aren't going to be as flexible as they used to be. That and I'm sick of all the ASR and getting paid crap! Most of my work is ASR, I'm getting way more lines, but my paycheck is smaller!?!?! Need flexibility and a decent paycheck! Any input would be great from anybody! I've worked only for MQ for 8 years and wondering if there would be anything better out there!
good for you; those kinds of companies will never be stable
