Don't know about radiology work load, but we have been scratching in the dirt for work for a numb
of months now. They hire, lose account, hire again before new accounts comes onboard, then have overhired, having to put new MT's on the current low workload.
Can anyone tell me how the work load is at MDI-MD? nm
I too was with them for about 1-1/2 months. Their QA people were great, easy for me to work with, very helpful. The owner is easy to work for. I left for personal reasons, getting out of this field for awhile. I would go back if I did this work again.
Work load at TT
Crystal...how long have you been an MT? Why I'm asking is that if you've been an MT for any length of time you KNOW that there are certain periods during the year that things will slow down JUST briefly. Labor Day and school starting times of the year is one of them. Another is Christmas and Thanksgiving. Transtech usually has an over abundance of work and all you have to do is take advantage of the times when the work is really booming with the bonuses they offer, etc. and these times when it's a little bit slow you can sit back and relax a minute...and I mean a minute, because it's going to pick back up with a quickness.
How's the work load been at MDI -MD lately? Enough or
TT work load
Maybe they're expecting. I work 2nd and have only run out of work twice in a year for a few minutes at most.
I personally almost always have work, although this morning was very slow, it picked up in the afternoon. I know work flow has been an issue for some though.
Oh for goodness sakes, don't you know that work flow varies from day to day. As a rule TT usually has plenty of work if one is willing to work on more than one account. So many seem to complain but if they would get out of that little comfort zone and learn other accounts they would have more than enough to keep them busy for 8 hours. TT has a really good track record. The ones that complain probably don't want to work. They'd rather get their lines on message boards.
Well, have you ever considered moving to the shift that DOES have work then? Geeeeee, what a concept.
They only want FT MTs but the work load sm
for me was a PT load and of course at the lower end of their tier system. I had to jump ship.

Anyone work at Diskriter, who can tell me how it's like, pay, work load, supes, etc. Thanks
When the work load is low how to you still manage to
You're here just like the rest of us. Are you one of those that manages to work in addition to your 8 hour shift to get it when the work is low?
Spheris low work load
Thought I would respond to the post about Spheris at the top as soon we would be booted off the page. Yes Healthscribe did outsource to India all along. As a matter of fact they were very proud of that fact. They did not send all of the work over there and seemed to keep plenty for their US MTs, however, that is exactly why Spheris took over Healthscribe is because of the India link. That is the main reason they bought Healthscribe, which is exactly why they are letting all the good MTs go and not paying them, etc. They want them to quit. Cheaper than paying unemployment when they eventually let them all go as all they ever wanted out of that deal was the link they had to India and India employees. That is no secret and is exactly why they are all being nudged out of work. The work is there. Your work is there, it is just being sent elsewhere and where as it should be illegal, well it is not. It is just morally wrong and not very American but I think those types of things such as morals and being proud to be an American get thrown out the window when these companies see $ in their pockets. Good old fashioned American pride is not important to these people anymore and thus the results we are seeing. It will be lost for our children and even worse for our children's children. That is why it is so important for us to stop going to hospitals or write to our hospitals that outsource and to get everyone you know to do it as well and make a big stink. That is why it is important for every American MT to rebel and not work for these companies, for their slave wage, etc. They will always need some American MT for that one account who does not want their work overseas and I know Spheris has a few of them, and if they cannot get an American MT to work for them, well, ....I guess they loose that account eventually, and as they get more that want their work brought back to the U.S. and they have no MTs from the U.S. to provide that to them, they lose another account and so on. Eventually the work will get sent to the companies who do promote strictly U.S. work, where it belongs, and the goal of being the largest company, which is what Spheris is striving to be will slowly start to shrink and then American people, we have one. Give that some thought!!
Amphion Work Load/QA
I have never been on these chats before but in checking all of them out I am in quite disbelief. I see people complaining about having to do OT and QA issues if you have a bad QA. Are you seriously kidding? You have a job at home, a computer given to you, and you are there if your kids need you, are sick, etc. You don't pay for gas, don't have to worry about the weather, or OT at an actual office. Most people out there are looking for a good company and now people are complaining about having too much work. This is a first for me because in my situation I always have bills, things cropping up for school and X-mas coming up as do most people I know. Remember what do you have and how good you do have it.
Work load is back up.
Most are too busy to post, I guess.
What is work load and pay like for Diskriter?
Extremely low work load right now
Supposedly new accounts are coming on board soon.....I sure hope so!
How is the work load at Transhealth? I'm thinking of
Focus Infomatics...low work load
I have been working for Focus Infomatics since January....just trying to build up my experience. Hard to make money at this at 8 cpl and often no work load whatsoever. Anyone know anything about them?
I know the MTs that work this acct. load them from a pool. However, sm
I think that is a very good idea - batching docs and/or specialties together. I wonder why they don't do that, and I am going to ask! Thanks! If you saw my post above, there are a total of 37 specialties on my list, made up of approx. 4-5 docs in each specialty, so I'm looking at learning well over 100 doctors in only 40 hrs. of training? That's a joke.
Many variables affect work load
Sometimes I have run out of work. Sometimes my accounts are swamped with OT, while other accounts are caught up. Some platforms have more work/accounts than others. Some specialties are overstaffed, some are understaffed. Its pretty much the same at other companies. Its just that people speak in absolutes on this board about their experience. You have to take it all with a grain of salt. I have come to understand that everyone's situation is so different that maybe we all should put a disclaimer that my situation is this and not make blanket statements using words like always and never, nor argue with one another about who's reality is valid - they all are.
Economy affecting work load
Is anyone else out there who may be struggling for lines thinking like me; that it may be people are just not going to doctors or electing for treatment they can possibly put off because they cannot afford it? My accounts have been pretty slow over the past 6 weeks or so, and when I hear that some people, especially the elderly who lost or suffered a huge reduction in their retirement when the stockmarket went down the tubes, are forgoing medical care in order to buy food or heat their homes, it makes me wonder how huge an impact this could eventually have on our jobs as MTs.
No, you won't make more money unless you do triple the work load. sm
Instead of transcribing 1200 to 2000 lines a day, you will need to edit 4000 to 5000 lines a day.
That is very difficult most days, the most I did, and this is with 5 years experience, was 3800 a day, and that is not consistent.
So, 3800 lines x what are you being paid 5 cpl = $190. I have to tell you 3800 lines of editing a day is tough to do most days. I had days where I could barely get 2000 done. It all depends on how recognized the dictator is and how many small errors are in the report.
So is the work load at MDI-FL picking up? I've talked to them before....sm
about coming to work for them when it does. They said they'd get in touch with me and so I really don't want to contact them back first. However, I'm probably going to move on if I don't hook up with them soon. I've seen here that their work load is down and perhaps they've overhired (?), but they'd be my first choice of where to go from here. So is their work picking up, especially the VR?
Anxiously waiting for work load to pick up -- LOW, low n/m
Every time the work load goes up substantially, they SUBCONTRACT..
The past 2 days are a perfect case in point. ***** work yesterday, scrambling today--with 5 accounts...While we all know MT companies could not care less about their typists, that 2-faced CEO of ours, who was the head of whatever morphed from AAMT, MUST BE TRYING TO ELIMINATE US...BUT KEEP HIRING, BABY. Fortunately, many people in India speak English.
Used to work there? How would you know what their work load is like now? I transcribe
150 radiology reports a day in 8 hours and there is still work in the system when I sign off.
Any MTs here work for Proscript, and how is your work load? NM
Old posts show they want 1200 lpd and that the work load was very uneven. nm

Any current information on Medware such as work load, pay, benefits, etc.
Thanks for anything you have.. the good, bad, and ugly.
Why is work load at Webmedx suddenly low during peak flu/RSV season? sm
Accounts that were on OT for a couple of weeks now have single-digit jobs pending, not all, obviously, but most.

and overall treatment of their MTs. I found archived opinions but all old. Is anyone there now that can comment? Thanks!!
Well I don't work for Transtech and this discussion isn't about Transtech...
and that is not age discrimination....give me a break...
That is a BIG problem at TransTech is leads assigning work, rather than letting the work flow
This TT MT just admitted to that fact. It has been very obvious, as so easy to tell how work comes into our que and then gets pulled out as fast as it came in and replaced with YUKKY dictators. VERY frustrating to us other TT MT's who take the JUNK that is NOT assigned to other MT's, such as this poster.
There is NO work at Transtech. Maybe they just choose special people to send work to
NO WORK at Transtech -- did no good to work the holiday for 1.5 lines, did it?
I am sure the office staff will share their PAID HOLIDAY MONIES with us who sit here with no work. This has gotten to be such a frustrating profession. I guess I need to relocate to Houston so that I can work in the office, too, and reap those wonderful paid benefits that us at-home piecemeal workers do not get.
huh? are you saying why not work at transtech? sm
Been there, done that and don't want to again due to the amt of ESLs Transtech had. i couldn't make good $ with so many different ESLs that i couldn't get used to them. so are you saying Probity is equivalent to transtech in ESL regard?
TransTech - what are they like to work for? s/m
Are you expected to produce a certain amount of lines per pay period?
Do they pay on time?
I have been offered a position but would like to know more about the company before I decide whether or not to take things any further.
Thanks for any information you can provide.
For those of you who work at TransTech doing VR, do you like it there? NM
How is TransTech to work for? ...sm
I got a job offer from Transtech Medical. Its sounds pretty good. I was wondering what the opinion was of present MTs with TransTech, how they are to work with, communication, platform, line counts, etc.??? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Never did, never will work for TransTech...
See my post reply above
At least Transtech allows you to work whenever you want.
Don't tell me! You used to work for Transtech!
Who gives a rat's *****. You won't be able to pay for a new car!!!!!! NO WORK AT TRANSTECH
Does Transtech hire to work on VR?
I am so SICK of VR I'm jumping ship.
I work for TransTech and am very happy there. sm
Work is plentiful, the pay is okay (there is a nice incentive tier), the benefits are good, and the management staff is terrific.
Good luck. I have ended up with jobs I hated, and that is definitely an unhappy place to be in.
