Congrats! You'll love it!
I have been there a year, and it has been the best year ever for me! It's much better than any other MTSO I have ever worked for! I know you'll love it! Welcome!
Congrats !! I'm happy for you. .nm
Congrats to you -- always nice to hear from someone who is happy with his/her choices. :-) nm
Congratulations! You'll be so happy there!
I'll be happy to to compare them for you. (sm)
Webmedx has a very good platform with many transcription-friendly features you will absolutely adore. I would say it's better than DQS now, plus WMX is honest. I have never once felt I was being cheated on lines. I always felt I was with DQS. I left MQ for WMX a couple of years ago. I immediately raised my income more than $600 a month. I have never once regretted my decision. You won't either.
Before you even CONSIDER SPI, rethink it. I'll be happy to talk.
Hi Happy, Thanks for responding, I'll be starting with them soon I hope
From what I can tell, it does seem to be a great place. Where you assigned an account or did you have some say on it? Can you share what other platforms you used? Did you use the Q platform before? How long did it take you to get up and running?
I'll work for them again if they get another eScription account.
The one I was on was lost. Not too heart broken as it was a pain in the butt account.
maybe you'll get on a decent platform/account
then that account will disappear and they'll assign another.
sometimes you'll hear that there's a new account coming on board ...
sometimes that happens, sometimes it falls through ...
I'm not saying that they absolutely don't care ... but particularly if you are an independent contractor, it genuinely is not their problem.
Either way, the people who are willing to sit and wait for work will stay ... I've been one of them ... not ready to switch companies, need the lines to pay the bills.
I remember when, first of all, work was often backed up (and ALWAYS out of TAT -- the first 7 or so years I did MT) these were hospital accounts being done done by local companies who had history with each other ... The national bought out and underbid the smaller companies and one of their big selling points was TURNAROUND and they agreed to penalties into their contracts ... IMHO, many turnaround times I've heard of are silly -- ER reports and STAT H&Ps/Consults do affect patient care and could justify a 2-4 hour TAT -- most other work types could easily fit a 12-24 hour TAT with the option to flag as STAT.
It was great to be able to work any hour of any day -- now it's much more iffy and harder to make up lines if you have an unexpected down time. JMHO.
Boy, I'd be happy to take over that private account if you want to get rid of it!
I'm sure that is not the one you'd want to get rid of though!!
Happy, I also have a high ESL account
at MDI and I love it. I like the challenge of learning the accents. I remember one doc (probably Indian or Pakistani) that I had the hardest time with when I started. Now I love to get his work, as I can breeze right through it. I'm with you, I'll take the ESLs over some of the American mushmouths and speed demons any day!
An account/company you are happy with, and the $$
I also live in a remote area. Can't make as much or have the flexibility elsewhere.
My primary account is a hosp in new orleans so I'm wondering if we'll have more charts in a fe
Well, I was happy for that overflow account coming on board
It is helping out some. No, I don't work on that account, but I did put in a full shift today.
In fact, the work is picking up on the account I work on as I had a total of 3 full shifts this week. Sure feels funny to work a full shift lately.
may be good now, wait until they Global your account, too. I left there long ago, happy I did. nm
If you'll read through past posts you'll find lots of
recent info. Why do you need menitoring if you already work as an MT. Unless you do clinic work most companies will require you to work at least one weekend day, at least initially.
If you'll read the archives you'll find out everything
you want to know, none of it good.
Congrats to both of you!
I'm glad you are both happy with your jobs. :)
Figured I'd say it.
thank you very much!!!!!!!
Congrats! :) I wish they had at least NM
let me know whether or not I passed the test or that they filled the position already! Oh well, I suppose it was good experience! :)
The good new is, I was offered a position with 2 other companies (Echo and The Word Pros) and was able to accept both as The Word Pros is a p.r.n. position (sort of like a temp agency--you take work only if you want to).
I hope you love it at PMSI!
Good luck in your new adventure.
You must have a wonderful account with a wonderful platform. Can't be MediTech, is it? You were lucky to get a good account with good dictators and easy platform. Right place at the right time. Think of the money you will be raking in:)
Been there for a month and i love it. I have plenty of work and everyone has been very helpful as I learn the accounts, etc. They expect a lot but they give a lot too! Good luck and welcome!
Would you mind e-mailing me with any info that you've been given. I'm not to that stage yet so until I get to talk with them some more I'm flying blind :(
Congrats to you!!!
I like to post non-critical questions on here as well. I hate to bug my supervisor unless I have to. I posted a question Sunday and got rude comments because of it. At the time, I didn't have my paperwork to look up an answer. I don't think there is anything wrong with asking questions here. That is what this board is for. I have asked my supervisor a ton of questions today and got very quick responses. I think people like to post rude comments because they either have nothing better to do or are just miserable in life. Who knows, maybe they hate their job and resent us for going after a better one. Anyway, post away. I don't mind answering anybody's questions if I know the answer and I definitely appreciate the answers I get on here! :)
Congratulations on the job!! Let us know how you feel WHEN YOU QUIT THIS ONE! LOL. Years ago, I was a regional manager for Transcend. They let me work my way up from at home Transcriptionist to QA to Transcription supervisor to Regional manager. At that time they were a great company to work for, especially since my local company was bought by them, and the transition was pretty good. I am not there now because I have kids and cannot travel anymore, plus I moved to a southern state where they did not have a presence then (no internet transcribing back then, only expensive long distance). If they are the same company as then, you should have a good career. Keep in touch with us, to let us know how it goes!
for getting out of the Q!
Congrats! Let us know how you do!
Congrats to you. Did you ask during sm
You're going to absolutely love working for MDI. No games, no hassles, great communication, and for the most part really decent dictators, too.
Congrats on getting on board... :-)
Do have any experience doing medical billing? I've been looking for July for a billing position to no avail. I have 33 years as an MT. Unfortunately I also live in a very rural, job-depressed area. Again congratulations and good luck!
Congrats to you!!!
See, good things always come to pass... and it has for you! Happy Holidays and congrats.
I believe you'll be very happy with your decision to go with MDI-MD. I just can't sing their praises loudly enough.
Welcome aboard :D
Too bad some unhappy MTs have to hit the Haterade so hard!! You go, girlies!!! Congrats....Gotta make the money!
Congrats to both of you
You are going to love it...welcome aboard! Sounds like you may well be on the account I'm on. Will you be on the Escription platform? If you're on the account I'm on, I think you'll enjoy it.
Congrats again :-)
You'll love it here, I promise!
Congratulations and welcome to the Keystrokes family. They are wonderful to work with and for. I am sure you will enjoy working with them.
Nothing to add, but I just accepted a position also. I start on the 18th, hopefully. I was told 12,000 lines per pay period minimum, but I am pretty sure we still have to work the entire shift, even if we meet our lines. I can usually do 1200 lines in 4 hours, so I guess I will make some extra money (provided there is plenty of work!)
Wow! Awesome hop! Congrats! nm
Best of luck to you, congrats.
Congrats! That is great for you!
Maybe one day I'll get there myself
Congrats on your raise
I am happy to see someone get a raise for a change even though it should have been more that what they gave.
I currently work for Spheris and it seems nobody ever gets a raise no matter what.
Congrats on leaving. I'm not far behind you. nm
congrats and welcome to Keystrokes...
Congrats on the new job, hope it is all that you wish sm
Wow! It is great to meet you. I was hired 2 weeks ago, and was the MT who wrote the post about Axolotl as a bright spot in dim MT Universe. I hope that this all works out for both of us! Funny thing is, did not even find the job from an ad. A while back I sent in my resume via their website and took a chance. I have over 25 years of hospital MT and ESL experience and love ops too, sounds like we have a lot in common. I hope the position is all you hope for and more. We may never meet in person, but it's nice to know you got the job and I have a new colleague!
Thanks for letting me know! Congrats to you too...
I wait for that knock on the door every day :). It is like Christmas is coming or something. Looking forward to starting. Thanks again for letting me know.
