I live in Virginia and have never heard of them ..
What city are they in?
MT Smith Goes to Washington

Fifty independent American MTs are traveling to Washington in two weeks to present proof, to health care administrators, patient omsbudsmen and members of Congress (who are patients themselves), of the horrific quality of overseas medical record transcription, revealing the before U.S. MT QA product which MTs see returning from Hindia-Pakiland every day. 

 

This information, along with video, audio and documented printed proof of government instability amid the newest of terrorist attacks in and around the offshore countries, has allowed very strong case to be presented to a very interested audience.

 

Wish us well.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
As a QA person, please also stress the need for better education for MTs trained in the U.S. In my many years as an editor, I have seen an awful lot of junk produced right here at home. We need more quality 2-year Associate Degree programs and better pay in order to attract quality people to MT.  We have to dispel the image once and for all that MT is an easy job that can be done at home by anyone with a computer and, oh yes, make a lot of money at it.  The bottom line is pay.  People are not going to work for the kind of pay that is offered now, especially when they find out how much manure they have to put up with.  Two of the three schools offering MT training where I live are dropping the program for lack of interest and because they have determined there is no future in it. I wish you much luck and thank you for being willing to stick your neck out.  We all need to do that.
Sorry to be dense, but what do you mean - Smith-Jones?

This did seem like a personal attack on Rita Smith. (sm)
I don't blame her for replying and I actually think she did so with more tact than I would have under the circumstances.

I used to work for YOG and Rita and April as well as many other FN employees were old Yoggers. COuldn't have asked for a nicer bunch of people.

Sometimes you simply get what you give.
Best of luck to you in your new venture.

Do ask, but I would venture a guess (sm)
that our paydays are always on Monday, but I have noticed for the last several months or so, my money is always IN THE BANK the Friday before.  If you want to be sure though, just email them.  They always answer.
Not OSI MT, but term venture capitalist SM
has been used a lot lately in reference to MT companies. My own company has venture capitalist, or is it vulture capitalists?

Only speculation on my part, but are these Indian investors who want an American MT company, then eventually move said company to India? Or wherever?

I supposed none of it really matters, I am just curious. Am I the only person who wonders about this?
Not uncommon. The venture capitalists insist on
profit even if it means bad behavior, and senior management goes along with whatever is dictated, whether it's what the client wants or not (ssssshhh!). If it means they get a year end bonus or a cushy pad to play
in, more's the better. Reminds me of offshoring that clients never knew abut, either.

MTSOs, in my experience in management, will do anything as long as it means that the bar tab has no ceiling and they can keep up with the Jones family next door.

Sorry to sound so bitter and jaded, but I'm tired seeing what management will do to entertain themselves at the expense of the MT and the patient.
Were their new venture capitalists, er, partners, on the calls?
Should be very interesting.

I venture a guess that it is the same group of people..
flaming others. Not sure what they get out of it, good attention, bad attention, even bad attention is attention and it seems that may be what is going on here. Perhaps pent up frustration at other stuff in their lives and they take it out here, on innocent posters. Just a guess. I've been coming here for years, but this seems to be the worst of the worst of behavior lately.
If you live in Virginia, then take the job because then you
could go directly to his office and DEMAND your paycheck (I am being sarcastic). This man is notorious for not paying his employees.

escribe solutions virginia beach - NOT THE INDIA ONE

I have an in-house interview tomorrow - anyone heard of or worked for this company?  I have been an in-house Transcriptionist making an hourly wage - so this work at home thing is new to me - I don't know anything about what I should accept if I get offered the job - can anyone school me?  ha ha  I don't want to get screwed, but I don't know what the average is for pay, lines per day/week, etc.  It's like a foreign language.  Also I don't want to take the job to work at home and spend a lot of time doing it and make no money.


Any with MDI that work on the Northern Virginia hospital accounts?
I work for one of the other services and received some disturbing news this week.  Just want to verify what I was told is true.  Please email. 
Anyone have recent info on Cymed in Virginia? Oldest posts are from 09/2005- TIA


I am apparently being stiffed by a woman in Virginia for vacation coverage work I did. sm

I am not sure where I go from from here.  She told me that she would pay me for invoices from 06/26 and 07/11 on 07/22 (yesterday).  When I emailed her and asked her to verify that she had indeed paid me, she read the email (you can check on AOL) and did not respond.  It is only $338, but in my world right now, that is a lot of money to lose.  I blame myself because I broke one of my rules by working for someone who did not have direct deposit, and also by waiting for over a month to get my first check.  She did pay that one, but I am thinking now it was only because she still needed me to continue working to finish out her vacation coverage. 


I suppose I can file a small claims suit, although I thought someone told me that you have to go to that state to file.  She's in Virginia and I am in Colorado.  I have a friend in that area, so perhaps he could do the preliminary leg work for me for that.  I was also going to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.  I thought of contacting her clients to let them know that although she is paid for her services, she does not pay others, but I am not sure if that is legal or not. 


I am a bit frustrated -- mad at myself for trusting her -- and scared too because I was counting on the money.  Any ideas? 


Thanks.


I've heard only positive things about them. So, I applied, but haven't heard a word. Maybe fl
nm
I've only heard of Intellitype. Never heard of Teletype.

I heard about it from my
supervisor. It is going to be adjusted according to what level you are, level 1, 2 or 3.
Me too. Never heard of them
They told me 6 to 6.5 cents per line. Yuck!
I heard.....
one of my doc's while dictating telling another she was leaving for Louisiana to help out. I'm sure it will pick up again soon.
What is this, never heard of it.
:
I heard that from an MT there, too, and...
...since I personally know the person who did the QA on on the account she referred to, I asked her and she said "no!"

Interestingly, the MT who claimed they outsourced a particular account did not even work in the same group.
I don't know. Never heard of them.
:)
I have heard a lot about this
company not paying its MTs many, many times. 
Never heard of them. - nm

I heard about their QA and that
it is very difficult.  I heard they will fire you without warning for a low QA score.  That is just what I heard, not sure about it tho.
Never heard of one in GA
Where did you see info a a Sten-Tel in Georgia? I work for Sten-Tel in MA.
I have never heard of that and how does someone because a pet?

Honestly, how does this work? There is no way for them to preselect all of your work is there. I just do whatever comes up in my queue as I am sure everyone else does. I just happen to be on a very busy account and I am sure others feel the same way, work-wise. I do not understand the attitudes.


Where did you see their ad? Never heard of them before. nm
s
Heard about that
Yes, I just talked to someone I email who works for them and she said that also, about not getting down time pay if your QA is under 97%. I work limited part time so don't ever get down time.
I can't keep up with all the changes and inconsistencies. I don't like the new phone system either. Have to jump thru hoops to talk to someone and then you aren't really sure if you are talking to the right person. Yes, venting. That's okay. It is nice to have someone to talk to and see if others feel like you do. Do you think things will get better??
No, not heard anything.

Has anyone heard anything from
I am still owed money and haven't heard anything. Each time I call I get voicemail. Does anybody know if the company is still open?
from what i heard...
one of the hospitals on oahu outsourced to heartland (they released MTs of 30+ years), and i heard that the quality of the reports became real bad due to the people in heartland not having good english skills.
Me 2, heard nothing at all
must not need them too bad
Anyone heard of them?
Pay? ESL overload? Benefits? Enough work? Platform?
Has anyone heard of
this company, MedEDocs, or Bob's PCWerks? 
From what I have heard, they have sm
several new accounts starting soon. They are growing and that is reason behind the ads.  I work there, love it and have no problems.  I don't plan on leaving. 
Last I heard sm
It was Tues - Sat or Sun - Thurs schedules and 8 1/2 cents per line if you worked the 3rd shift. They wanted 40 hours per week full time, insurance kicked in after 90 days, and direct deposit. They send you a PC, I believe.
I heard
I have not had personal experience with them, but had a friend who worked for them in QA. She had to leave and find another job because not only was work very famine like, but what came in was real garbage from India. I hope this helps some.
i heard from them...
a few months ago after passing a test. the person i spoke with (forgot her name) was very nice and offered me a starting pay of 8 cpl. i dont remember much, but i decided not to take the job and emailed her to let her know i had accepted a position with a local company. it was nice that she made the time to respond back and wished me well. i remember some negative posts after that about a lot of ESL accounts. sorry, thats all i remember.
I heard sm
that it's different for different accounts, either 8 cpl 65 char or $1.10 a report, but don't know that for a fact.
Consider yourself heard!! You can do this....
nose to the grindstone... take a deep breath... loved your ending!
