It is a hospital in Maryland and has very easy docs. If you get hired, maybe they will put you on that hospital account. Super duper easy. Very few ESLs. I am making my line count is 5-6 hours and I have been on the account for 10 months.

Same here. It has been very busy on my account. sm
I am very happy there and glad I took the plunge.
We have been TOO busy on my account. On incentive pay for
three weeks now due to increased volume and TAT demands. The other account I do backup on for KS has been asking for extra help as well.
This is my final stop for radiology transcription. I have been here over a year and feel appreciated, well-paid and busy.
I agree..I have been very busy on my account and have not even been on this board (sm)
for 3 days in a row. I am still with KS and very happy. A couple weeks ago I posted my true feelings about working there because they were true and after the horrors I experienced at Medquist the last year I was there, KS is a refreshing change of pace. If someone doesn't like the fact that people who work for KS are genuinely happy, don't read the posts about them. I am not a member of management or someone who was coerced to write how I feel about my job. I have worked for 4 MT companies in the past 15 years and Keystrokes is far and away the best. I do not like switching companies either so I plan on staying with Keystrokes for the duration of my career.
Very low on my primary account with my FT job, but busy with my PT jobs. sm
Unfortunately, I need the lines at the FT job not only for the $$$ but to maintain my benefits. Kinda scary.
I currently am on a C-phone account...mine stays pretty busy (sm)
If they are offering you 2 accounts I would probably take it. I wish I had a backup for the times when mine is slow, which is rare. The C-phone accounts aren't bad but I worked on Docuscribe at Medquist and LOVED it! For what it's worth, I'm happy at KS. Good luck!
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
Busy does not mean disorganized. I would rather work for a busy company sm
than one with no work. I started with Keystrokes 3 months ago and it is the best thing I ever did. I have a steady paycheck and plenty of work.
Yes that was the account I was on and it was GREAT account...sm
So if they are going to mess several things up: 1) Pay for their employees, 2) Losing a big account like that one, 3) Hiring supervisors that just wanted to chit-chat and lose production then I would think that is NOT a company to go for. But I had to learn it the hard way - having my payday be weeks late during Christmastime. But I gave them the benefit of the doubt for 2 more paydays - they were late also....
The account isn't so great, but DocQscribe is the best. nm
Sounds like you have a great VR account
but very demanding management. Just like you wouldn't work for companies where the VR is really bad, I wouldn't work for a company that demanded I not erase and retype. They're already cutting my pay...I'm not going to stand for them telling me I need to lose more money by doing it their way only, especially if the end product is the exact same.
They may be hiring for a large ESL account still. Great
company. They provide all equipment/software. Pay for downtime. QA pretty strict, just maintain minimum score of 98.5, 1200 lpd/12,000 per pay period. DD, on-time. Insurance starts the first day of the month after you start, very reasonable premiums.
I would go with the great money account personally. SM
Would mind sharing the name of the company or are you IC?
working that account and it is great! So far I have no complaints. nm
Hmmm...wonder what account you are on..my QA is great..what was wrong, which report,what I put and
what it should have been. I've no complaints at all about this company. The account is picky but that is not Amphion, that is their client. Besides, that what I get paid to do. To each their own I guess.
Sorry to hear that because that was a good account with great normals. Hope
you find a new home where you will be appreciated and with good line counts!
I miss YOG also! Good company, great line rate, and awesome account.
I find the sound quality not so great on some accounts. I guess it depends on what account you get
QT gets my vote! I love it! Gross line pay, on time, 1 account, steady work! Great place!!!! nm
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
Sorry I got busy.
Got busy. I was going to get to it :)
Two of my accounts are super busy and two others are moderately busy.
I work for 3 companies and 2 out of the 3 are very busy. One is slow but I just use that money for free money. You have to keep looking. There are companies out there that pay their people a halfway decent salary and have work. Am I making what I made 5-10 years ago, no, but I can pay my bills and have money leftover. I am also looking at a fourth company to replace the slow company as I think they are probably losing the acct I am working on. Keep looking, there is work.
I have been as busy as I can be. There has been
overtime available the last 2 weekends and enough work in the system to not have to check back later in the evening. If it weren't for the fact that I got the flu over New Years and it is still lingering, I could have really cleaned up
I do know somebody starting cherrypicking my primary at my last job. I would have to sign in at midnight and hope my favorite surgeon was up late dictating to get anything remotely lucrative. Otherwise, there would be like 40 echocardiograms in my queue. When I asked management about that, they said the census was low. Funny, I guess people can stop in and have an echo anytime they want as apparently no one has to admit these people or order a cardiology consult on them.
These managers don't really get that you know your account and WORK FLOW forwards and backwards after sitting there all day, day in and day out. I think you may be right to call that BS as I pretty much knew immediately something was going on with my account.
Let's just hope this issue does not come if/when anyone ask you Q's during all the MQ legal issues
So busy MT'ng?
I think what some are trying to bring up is the fact that legally,if for some off the wall reason, you'd have to answer say...privacy,HIPPA whatever questions in a deposition, then you would be in breach of contract with one of your jobs.
Not sure anyone's miserable or even cares about your situation, just bringing up the obvious, which seems your way to busy patting & grooming yourself up, to worry about. Keep on with that great life!
My sentiments exactly. One has to look out for themselves because God knows these companies donot look out for you Wouldn't you like to know how much the company actually gets per line plus they make all these promises to get an acccount on board and to get an MT to work there.
You are absolutely correct dear. It's no one business if you work for 10 companies. that is your perogative. More power to dear. I am on your side all athe way.
I mostly agree with you, Busy...SM
I'd really like to see some kind of seniority benefit come into play. :)
Yup, Busy. I'm not complaining, but...! NM
Is it possible their MTs are too busy working why they
That's a possibility and I do know companies who have MTs that want to keep a good thing for themselves and I can well understand it
Maybe they are just so busy and need another MT and the job posted is not yours. sm
That could be it. If you are that upset, call and ask them.
I hope things work out for you!
I agree with Busy
I agree with Busy's approach. Although I left MQ (new PS who was clueless), I did the right thing by MQ, gave them two weeks' notice, worked as hard as I could right up to the last, and sent thank you e-mails to my WFC and PS. I agree with Busy that there are many, many choices out there for many, many needs. MQ no longer met my needs, so I left them in as decent and professional a manner as I could.
I have never had low work at MDI... very busy
all the time. I guess different people have different experiences. My experience with MDI has been a great one. I really love it there and would be happy to give you more information via e-mail
Dictaphone has been busy....
and I have yet to run out of work. The only time it was slow was on the 4th of July (which is not unusual considering it was a holiday), but I have not had any problems with running out of work OR management. I've been with Medware now for almost 6 months and REALLY like it!
Maybe there busy learning their new
I think someone posted before that they were getting like 9 new accounts. So, maybe everyone is tied up and can't really take a coffee break. I'd be stroking those keys too if I was making 9.5 cpl (their starting rate per one post). I'm glad there's at least one company out there that pays well. I really don't think though that someone working there for only three months could really have anything bad to say. I think someone else posted that KS promises lower health insurance premiums soon so that is a good thing.
Busy and happy and not here much...
just passed my first 3 months at Keystrokes....and it's STILL a great company! And as I have lots of work, I'm not spending as much time reading the boards... I agree with previous poster...seems like if an MT expresses that they are happy with their position, their company, or even their occupation, they open themselves up to being bashed by folks who are apparently unhappy about something. I think this board is a great place to vent and I'm glad it's here...but at times there's a lot more bashing than support going on.
I never stayed busy....
I worked on an ortho account and they kept running out of work, so I quit. They had way too many MTs in the typing pool. They do not assign the MTs doctors and you are in a pool so the work is on a first come first serve basis. Good luck! Not the job for me.
I'm sorry-been really busy today!
I will email you in a few
You must not be very busy, because you are always on this board.
My accounts at KS are very busy. nm
If you are rad, you should be busy not slow. sm
email me. I will help!
Wet noodle busy here too--sm
Yup, I did that too--beat myself up, that is. With the exception of one dictator being a bit difficult to understand, which I would think they would take into consideration, I know there were no errors in my transcription. I proofread and double checked everything. So, I finally decided it was their loss. I am definitely glad I have a job with a company I like. I've weathered growing pains with them before as they have weathered and supported me through life changes, so I would imagine we will be okay:)
Not running out here...I have been really busy..
Extremely busy... sm
It might be because they have been extremely busy with transitioning a new account.
Busy, working on day off too.
No complaints here. Going to get work done and put money away for the times it gets slow again, and for Christmas.
Yes, I have. She is very busy but I would follow up. sm
If you were contacted for an interview, I would definitely follow up on it. You could have slipped through the cracks with the holidays. They have a large account coming up that they are trying to staff and I could only imagine how many responses those job postings receive to weed through. Your resume obviouly stood out to get contacted for an interview. Definitely follow up on your original contact for an interview. I am extremely pleased thus far.
no I'm too busy correcting the
mistakes, reformatting, deleting stuff the dictator did not say, adding things he did say, and thinking about using the hot keys to have my brain turn to mush. But I'd rather straight type any day.
Well, at least the PR guys will be kept busy... SM
Rewriting the Acusis flyer: *Acusis is an average MTSO, and so if you're an average hospital with no big expectations for your medical records, give Acusis a try.*
*If you're not expecting very much from your MTSO, Acusis and their barely average MTs will not disappoint you.*
maybe we are just lucky that we are busy..nm
That account in Texas was not a MQ account. They did not use DQS on that account until KS started.
They are moving 3 other accounts to DQS between now and January 1st. I asked. The MQ accounts they have gotten in the past did not go to DQS. I followed my old account, which is how I know, and it was Meditech. The account is still run by KS and is a big account too.
No, actually I don't - I'm too busy trying to survive to worry about
You need a reality check, girl and you still haven't said what YOUR name is. Credibility, you know!
