Buy why bother to learn all that new technology

In Reply to: I do--sort of. SM - MsIndigo

Its like, whats the point even? I wonder if the leaders of this country have any idea how HUGE the homeless and indigent problem is going to be here in just a few years. And they won't have the middle class to fall back on and bail them out, because the entire middle class will be gone. They'll either be living in their cars and begging on street-corners, or incarcerated for stealing in order to survive, or else they'll be dead. This whole business of putting Americans out of work, so the rich can become richer, is gonna eventually leave them with some big bills to pay.

You can thank technology!
With all the available options with the internet now, overseas, voice recognition, etc., it has become the ruination of MTing as we knew it. Not to mention other things. Customer service jobs going overseas. Small businesses folding due to the internet shopping competition, like Ebay. And look at the children of the new mod-world, they don't even go outside to play anymore, they chat on the internet and hang out on MySpace.com. It's a very scary world.

  That line about we take care of our people is laughable. They might take care of some favorites.

Not just technology
But the corporate mentality behind it. Now there are exceptions, but in general, once the suits saw $$ in Transcription, that was all she wrote. The hospital corporations may think they are saving $ but all they are doing is redistributing who gets the real $ and the quality of the medical report suffers in the process.
With technology progressing the way it is,
there's no reason the hospitals can't hire people in other states to do their transcription for them over the Internet or a toll-free phone line. I live in a very rural state, and that's what it's boiling down to. The hospitals can't find people willing to work inhouse, so they're setting up dial-in or Internet access for off-site transcriptionists. I worked for the local hospital for a while at home. We got sick leave, vacation pay, insurance benefits, and bonuses. I left them for a different job, but I wish I had stayed with them.
what has modern technology got to sm
do with my post about folks working from home and not taking this job seriously while raising kids? Obviously you want to argue the book versus internet thing again and its not going to happen.

Go back to India.
That "other technology...." sm
is already on the scene. It is EMR using POS terminals. Yep, we will just become generic patients with point-and-click illnesses, just as we will become unemployed persons with a huge fund of knowledge. That and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee, but you'd better have a dollar!
I think this just fabulous technology!........nm
MultiModal Technology
Just wondering if anyone is currently working for a company that uses MultiModal Speech Technology and if the platform is MT friendly?  I have a job offer and this is what the company uses and it sounds like an easy platform.  Thanks!
MQ technology has always been #1. Platform is state of the art
and others pale in comparison. DocQScribe is their newest platform, and its great. Really fast, really efficient for us regarding demos, etc.
To the MQ MT who posted above re state of the art technology... sm

I have been offered a job with TTS and can't find any info on them. They are located in New Hampshire. They had  a job posting on the job seekers board here so I was hoping somebody had some information. Thank you!
Does TTS (Transcription, Technology & Support) still have issues sm
regarding pay?  I checked the archives, and I found posts saying they didn't get paid on time, pay was not correct, etc., which is a bit scary.  I was only going to work for them part-time, but I still would like to get paid.  Any input would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Anyone with information on Transcription, Technology, and Support (TTS)?
It sounds like they have a lot of good benefits but it always appears that way in ads to sell themselves and then you find out it isn't what it appears. I am curious about their medical insurance, if it is affordable and what their accounts are like i.e. high ESLs etc. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Proof positive that the evolution of technology
Manual Typewriters: At least they work during a power outage. And having to leave the keyboard to return the carriage by hand can help prevent some computer injuries. Downside - you had to hit the keys really hard, and they were slow.

Electric Typewriter: You could actually do things like make the document LOOK GOOD, and easy-to-read, not like the wrap-around cr@p our final product turns into at the receiving end. Downside - Power failures, and the memory writers never had enough memory for me.

Mag Cards: (You forgot these!) Even though they were older than the IBM memory typewriters, I really love my Mag-Card, because you could just keep feeding cards into it, so the memory was limitless. Easy to do normals on them, too. Downside - they were HUGE!

Straight Transcription: Produces a better, more-accurate record. I've done enough 'normals' and templates in my day to see some truly incredible mistakes because the doc didn't bother to pull the right template, or even read what it said. Straight transcription is also a lot more interesting to do. Downside - docs get tired of talking, and tend to go a mile-a-minute through the physical exams.

VR: It has its limited uses, but having seen the trash it produces, I think it has no place in medical or legal documentation. Upside - it makes for a lot of uproarious laughter when you're watching the Evening News with VR-produced, closed-captioning.

EMR: Again, it has its uses, for example, making it possible to immediately look up, or send, a patient's entire medical record, or to use the computer to find a specific part of a long, complicated record. But point-and-click yes-and-no sounds tedious to ME, and I work with words and tedium for a living. Imagine a busy, impatient doctor trying to do it. I think it would drive most of them nuts, and probably leaves them wide-open for major mistakes that could impact patient safety.
You said it. Technology is taking over, and we are going down the memory lane...nm
Does anyone have experience with Advanced Transcription Technology?
I'd like to hear about other's experience there before applying.
Would it bother you as much....sm
if the AAMT meeting had been held in Detroit or Cleveland or some other place that was not as, shall we say, vacation like?

The management of MW (and any other company for that matter) who went to the AAMT meeting did so as a part of their job. Their job is to watch the industry, make contacts and interact with other companies in the industry to try to better our working conditions and further our ability to do our jobs, just as our job is to transcribe and edit reports and learn all we can to improve ourselves and the work we do. Whether you like it or not, there is a separation between MTs and management and a separation between what we do and what they do. Don't like it? You have a couple of options here. You can work on improving yourself and making a name for yourself with your company as a trustworthy and valuable employee and rise to the ranks of management and then have the opportunity to be sent to the AAMT meetings or you can work hard, put some money aside, join AAMT and go on your own.....or you could just continue to sit there and bellyache about it. The choice is yours. The meeting next year is to be held in Queensland on Australia's Gold Coast. Better start saving up now.
TRS - don't bother
I talked with the recruiter in October and he could not explain their pay rate and/or guide that is used.  It is very confusing and they have a very difficult time keeping people. 
Don't bother with them.
They're trouble.
Don't take the job if you think it will bother you
I hated working for them just for that reason.
Don't bother!
I did not like that company whatsoever. Office manager was not nice.
Don't bother!
This company is a nightmare. I live in New Jersey. Constant turnover. Horrible management. They advertise over and over again. That should tell you something about them. They cannot keep somebody for more than a week. Do not even waste your time with this place! You will be sorry!
why bother
Some companies think that just because you have those 3 little letters behind your name you know more than any other MT. This is far from true, it only means those people paid the outrageous price to test and passed the test. I started a part-time job over 2 years ago and the company refused to pay me what I was actually worth because I didnt have CMT behind my name. Even though I have 18+ years' experience as a Transcriptionist and Editor they refused to pay me the 2 dollars more an hour that the CMTs were getting. So I did the same work and somebody with less experience but with the CMT got more money than me. Needless to say I have since left that company.
Why do they bother?
I was contacted by a company to work for them.  I told them exactly the days I could work and how much I was willing to work.  When they sent work for the weekend, I explained to them that I do not work weekends.  Well, I did not hear from them again.  Tried contacting them Monday.  Tried sign on Monday and was locked out.  Did not get a email until Tuesday afternoon stating my quality was just not good enough.  I've been at this for 15 years!
Don't bother...

Maybe I'm just not what she's looking for, but she emailed me back and said the positions were filled.

If they were, that was pretty fast!
