Correct --did NOT off-shore work to India sm
Posted By: LowKey on 2008-10-04
In Reply to: they did lay off- didnt outsource but laid off a lot - no name
The rest of the post was **...SENT WORK TO INDIA A FEW MONTHS AGO** making it sound like MTs were laid off BECAUSE their work went to India.
If you have any familiarity with this company, you know that the none of the DRC/Acusis accounts are allowed by the clients to be typed outside of the US.
So YES, there was a lay-off, but NO it didn't have anything to do with India.
PS: Offshore and outsource are not the same thing. But you know that, too, right? ;-)

I understand they off shore to India and
may even have a company over seas as well. Not for me.
offshore to India, it's OFFSHORE (off shore), not outsource to India.
not sure who they used to be, but they bought out tmts and all india is correct. nm
Most of the work is done off-shore. I feel
Does anyone have actual experience in the quality of off-shore work?
A physical therapist in my area said they kept a file of the funniest errors they received from the off-shore work. I do believe that most of the hospital staff that get the work back care diddly-squat about quality -- it's probably not read, only filed.
Work is being sent off shore. Just like we are able to work
at home, the work can easily be done in India or the Phillipines.
Correct, I have been running out of work too, but this always happens SM
around the holidays. I know Spheris has a place in India. I sometimes mistakenly get emails from them. I dont like that either. With that aside, Spheris is still a better run company in my experience.
Much good work going to India. Bad work left
100% correct. Ruined me too. I just couldnt work
I work for Webmedx. Always on time, always correct pay.
Now most of the work is done in India.
Medware does not pay correct? How so, you can email me too.. I dont want to work where they screw up
your check.. Thanks for any help...
UMMM - I'm not at work, no need to correct as I stated below, I know post had errors.nm
To say the work that comes in from India is awful...
... is an understatement. I would pull some of those jobs that had beentranscribed in India and there were some that had entire sections crossed out and retyped because they were wrong (and scary wrong too - wrong medications...). The hospital I used to work for uses them and when I still worked at HealthScribe India was doing this hospitals discharge summaries. I refuse to use that hospital because I know the transcription will be of very poor quality andI refuse to play games with my health and the health of my loves ones.
Work is going to India or some other country. nm
All of CBays work goes to India. nm
Most of their work is done in India by Indian MTs. sm
Tell your lead person you need more work and commit to it. They will work with you if you are good with a high accuracy rating.
Good luck - been there, done that, ain't going back ever!
Thank NAFTA for work going to India
AAMT cannot discriminate because of this law (I asked them years ago). I think 50% of new MTs being from India shows their determination and pursuit of excellence; perhaps American MTs need to follow their example and compete! I challenge MTs to be the best they can, and that is at this pont determined by their ability to pass the CMT exam. Go, girls!
Exactly. India work stinks.
You are a fool to think US work won't go to India
Happened to a group of us. We had a US force and India force, and guess what, it was more cost efficient to send ALL work overseas, hence all US employees laid off. You really are naive to think they won't do that someday, but I hope you drain their pockets dry before they do.
What has sending work to India done?
We have upset the economy of India, creating an even larger rift and making the poor even poorer because we have inflated the economy in the cities and of those who have had a chance to be educated. The poor have lost even more footing.
We have lost job opportunities for our own Americans, but the companies continue charge the hospitals the same amount for transciption, however their overhead continues to drop, corporate salaries continue to increase and our rate of pay stays the same or drops.
India is a country that allows very very little importing of anything made in the US, so it is a 1 way deal for them.
The individuals from other companies do not pay taxes, so we continue to pay to support those in our country who have gone on the public roles for aid and assistance.
Wouldn't it be nicer to have some of these people working again?
Yes they do send work to India
I know because they told someone I know who is a facility that they would if they wanted their work sent over there.
go to India and work with those people sm
you support so well.
I wonder why they don't send a lot or all of their work to India? That's where a lot of work&
I *do* work at Precyse and most of the work is going to India
Yes that is the company MQ uses to send work to India.
I edit the work that comes back from India. (sm)
Not sure why they did not tell you the truth. That REALLY bothers me.
Anyone know anything about Cbay out of Maryland and if all their work goes to India. Do they use any
American MTs or what is the deal.
Yep, all the work is in India now. I bet the quality is great! sm
They'll get theirs in the end. They should be ashamed of themselves. What a crappy way to tell us too. The supervisors didn't even have the balls to tell us, they made HR do it. We should file a lawsuit.
MDI-FL has India contact they supply work to. nm
Yeah..they are dishonest. They most certainly are in India. Do you really want to work for someone
that is dishonest?? not me..
Check the archives. Most work done in India, they
have office in India. I have never seen anything good about them.
Webmedx does NOT send work to India.
Transcend most certainly does send work to India.
And they are proud to have these partners
Plenty of work if you live in India
It's not just overhiring. They are sending the best work to India.
They have always sent work there but I believe they have geared up these efforts in the past six months, and the easiet work (ER). That is when I noticed there was not consistent work. I had to move on and so will others.
No India? Most of the work goes there. I quit last August SM
could not make any money there.
Spheris sends most work to India. SM
They are most certainly NOT a company to work for, if you are a single mom.
Does Transtech send work to India? nm
Not hiring because they send most their work to India
These men are raised in a society where women are considered little more than property. Women have no voice, they are there strictly for the convienence of the men. The men come here expecting to live their lives and run their businesses as they did in their home country. In fact, many of the home offices of the MT companies are now in the third world countries. Ithink offshoring is showing to be a big wake-up call to the average US citizen as to how the globalization of the economy is going to go. It is not they we are pulling anyone UP to our level, it is more like we are being pulled DOWN to their level doing business. My experience with off-shored men is they have no respect for women, they are much less than honest, at least in business and any action justifies him getting what he wants. This is my experience from a business stand point.
No off-shore; they are big on that. sm
6 paid holidays, Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, MetLife dental (GOOD dental plan), and I think a week of PTO first year but it goes up after that. I've been there a long time (almost 9 yrs) so I don't know what new MTs start at. I like the shift differential and the incentive plan; don't judge on your base line rate offer - you can make a lot more.
Anyone know anything about Cbay at all in Maryland. Do they only send their work to India.
good, let them do all the India work, and take all the hits for law suits...
I wish they would monopolize the India market and totally stick with that...
I also posted an article about this a few weeks back, even with pictures of the offices in India (lot nicer than here).
hope they put all their money into it and then when technology takes all our jobs, they will have nothing.
Medquist, hate it or not, has invested rather in the technology, thereby will be the leaders in that. if I worked there I would train and learn everything I could about working with that technology because that eventually, in my opinion, will drive even Indian MTs into unemployment.
go work for them and you will see - managers, supervisors all from India and IM you to death! nm
I'd bet my boots it's work that is going overseas to India or Pakistan. nm
I wonder if they hire US MTs on new accounts and then get rid of them and send the work to India
after it goes through SR or something and the system learns from the US MTs.
Let me sum it up for you, 80% of work is done in India, they just laid off a bunch of American
QA people, some of which were hired only a few months before they were fired, and they just now fired a lot of their upper management. Something is in the wind at Focus and it smells like crap! Don't work there. If you do decide to ignore the warnings, don't believe anything they tell you! They lie to you right up until they call and fire you.
Absolutely, sends work to India, Phillipines...sm
She's something alright, sending work offshore instead of paying someone in the US a workable wage. Name of company is Another Medical Must...owned by Renee Lella....look her up on Google and see how that's worked for her in the past, with a major leak of patient records due to dealing with the Indian company and their MTs. She trains her MTs most of the time using her cell phone in the car while doing errands or picking up kids...horrible. Bad, bad experience, never again. She looks at this board occasionally and still posts for job openings once in a while, but always under an alias or different name, sometimes maria...sometimes another name. Shifty.
Guess our work will eventually go to India now. Going to start looking for another job! (NM)
TransHealth does not off shore.
