EMR- as you stated, is an electronic medical record.
This is compiled from data from multiple sources, not the least of which is a scanned TRANSCRIBED document. Your outrage is misplaced. Someone still needs to CREATE the record.

If you haven't already on exactly WHERE, HOW those records are to be stored. Please refer to HIPAA rules. While the likelihood of you being caught, it's a $25,000 fine PER RECORD I believe.
Our computers are checked quarterly by our Security Officer to guarantee no PHI is on our computer.
Let me educate you a lilttle bit.....
I also work as an IC for a former hospital I was employed by (11/cpl). I get the same treatment as I did as an employee--what you pull up is what you type. But because the in-house MTs are paid hourly, they will have to work and, occasionally, the ICs will be told to log off for a few hours.
With the hospital I am with now, I would slack at $22/h and screw the incentive. But not so. My hospital makes us work for quality TAT. They are paying us by the hour at that much pay so um, yeah, we better work.
Therefore, there is no need for ill wishes on me about hoping I will have a new perspective about being paid by the line. I am an employee at one hospital and an IC for a former hospital I worked with, and I am happy with both (IC at 11/cpl and employee at 22/h plus incentives). Not all the hospitals are the same as stated by below posters.
Vent all you want, but educate yourself about
unions because someone is feeding you information from the 1920's.
No one HAS to join a union or bargaining agency. You can work for slave wages, for free if you like; you are free to choose in the USA.
Not sure you can educate some on this board
The same group that KNOWS our media is full of propaganda ALSO tends to suck up the majority of what they report.
One reason Americans were so EASILY manipulated after 911
Educate thyself - did you ever hear of new accts?
Attention MTSOs. Educate yourselves regarding IC status...sm
An IC is a INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR, has a contract, does the job on his/her own time schedule, pays all her/his own taxes including SELF-employment taxes, and is SELF employed. If you require you so-called ICs to adhere to a schedule of any sort, they are not ICs. Also, whatever you are paying them, when taxes etc. are deducted, their bottom line equals approximately 20% of that line rate even with their deductions for a home office. The additional taxes and penalties if the IRS investigates will make you sorry you broke the law!
Free enterprise. You are free to re-educate and retrain, as well!!!!
What's the complaint?!
