obligations to each company it isn't anyone's business what you do.
When you sign a contract with a company rarely is there a clause about not working for oneone else, only a noncomplete clause.
Now if you are using their equipment for the other company I see a major issue with that, maybe not illegal, but certainly not ethical. I

Isn't that a conflict of interest? NM
I would agree with the conflict of interest..
I do wonder how many people actually get caught doing this. Our vendors do have people work for other hospitals to make sure they stay productive. I never thought about the situation until it happened. What is funny is that this 1 girl I knew worked as an employee with me, BUT also worked for 1 of the vendors and my boss knew about it. She doesn't work for the vendor anymore and she still works as an employee with us. That was the interesing part.
Not legal, more conflict of interest.... nm
I use my own equipment, and there is no conflict of interest. sm
I would prefer to only work one full-time job, but there are things that I want (like a roof over my head and to pay the utilities - ha), and the only way I know how to get them is to work enough so that I can have them. My full-time job is acute care, and the PT jobs are clinic work, so it is nice change of pace for me ... at least as nice as still sitting all day and pounding a keyboard can be. The way the wages have gone down in this industry, it seems I have to work twice as hard to make half as much. I made more in 1983 than I do right now. Still ..... such is life. And when I want to have a little pity party about having to work so much, etc., I just think of those who do not even have a job or a place to stay, and I realize I should be grateful to be working at all.
Conflict of interest working for 2 nationals
Just a question - back in 1998, it was considered a conflict of interest to work for 2 nationals such as Edix and Medquist. From what I see, it does not appear to be that way now. Can someone shed some light on this? For those who work for nationals - do they know you work for their competition? No flaming please - just curious.
Conflict of interest working for 2 companies?
Has anyone ever come across a company that makes you sign paperwork stating that you are not working for another company. I need a second part-time job, finally found one and while filling out the paperwork I came across this. I didn't tell them I was working for another company during the interview but also did not deny it. Should I give up the second or just not tell?
Don't see it as a conflict
Work for the individual doctors was distinctly different from the work for the hospital itself. The doctors always went to the MR director if they were looking for someone to fill a vacancy, cover for vacation, etc., or they would wander into the transcription area and ask directly.
As noted, though, unless the physicians and their clinics are paid for by the hospital, it's no conflict. Ask yourself who does their clinic notes now. If it's not the hospital's transcription department, there's no conflict.
2 jobs conflict
It would be wonderful to only have 1 job but sometimes in this business you cannot make enough to pay the bills. I do however like the idea of only 1 job...is there a way to actually do that and get a good paycheck? I don't mean to sound naive, or pessimistic, but if you don't work for the same account through 2 vendors, is is truly a fireable offense? Again, your thoughts appreciated on this very interesting topic
That would be a conflict of interests,
director to give you leads on doctors needing work, and also pursuing work from doctors at the hospital while you are an employee at the hospital. I worked in a hospital for many years and that sort of thing was strictly prohibited.
Could I interest you
in some ocean front property I have for sale in the middle of the Mohave desert?
as far as needing certain hours that would conflict with IRS
but that is between the company and the worker.
Doesnt matter if YOU see it as conflict or not.
I have always had an interest in this company, but....sm
their starting rate was way LOW for me. Have the upped this? Let us all know whether the pay is low, average, above average. TIA
And they seem to have an interest in buying some
Something of interest....PLEASE READ.
The first time I noticed this, I shrugged it off. But it's happened again and time to share it with my fellow workers.
I noticed the account on which I work had no reports in the one particular subspecialty I am supposed to work first, which I found odd.
I signed in the next day, there were more than 20 reports on that particular subspecialty. As I began transcribing, I noticed these reports had been dictated 9/8/2009; I was transcribing on 9/11/2009.
Where did these reports go for 3 days?
Beats me but my assumption is *somebody* didn't meet TAT and the work bounced back to the US.
Interestingly, isn't it?
How do you get to work for both. Spheris told me it was conflict for me to have another job.
Especially with a national company. They wouldn't even talk to me about why I should leave MQ for them as long as I worked for their competition. How did you swing both jobs. I know MQ doesn't have a problem with me taking another position but Spheris was anal about it.
I don't think there would be any greater conflict concerns than there would be with any kind
Also, what does interest companies contact mean?
Interest companies? What is that? (at end of job post).
No interest in running a business... of ANY kind... been there, done that.
If you're a business owner, you already know why.
you know, you don't have to open posts about topics that don't interest you.
Your friend probably just kept paying the interest and rolling it over...
then it could add up to any amount. That is how they get you good.
I would change banks, they are making interest off your paycheck for a day.
So you're sending out bogus INTEREST LETTERS?
As another MT who just got a we're very interested letter and questionairre, I have to say,
PLEASE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!!!!!
You've wasted my time.
So Webmedx is just another crock of bull MTSO lying to potential employees.
Why am I not surprised?
What happens if you don't meet your
and some days exceed the minimum line count. As with any job, there's a learning curve. This is not a place where you can have a day of training and be up to speed. It will take 2-3 weeks before you are likely meeting production lines. You are, however, paid hourly while training, so it takes some of the pressure off.
I have 4 "criteria" to meet to get it....(sm)
I have to have 98% on QA;
I have to type the schedule I committed to or arrange for;
I have to type 1600 lines on weekends;
And agreed to the incentive plan (which I signed and sent in when I started).
I had 13,823 lines this past payperiod. I had to work for it, no doubt about it. I really want to get to the 16,000 and even more but I don't know that I can do it consistently. Of course, I'm still learning my accounts so I'm sure it could get a bit easier or faster. It's no walk in the park, though. I have to concentrate and just really stick to it.
A friend of mine who referred me to MQ, she types 18,000 PLUS every check. I kid you not, she is the fastest thing on the keyboard I have ever seen. When I'm at her house, I just sit and laugh listening to her type -- she sounds like some kind of machine gun in there! ROFL
Now I would LOVE to type that much but I doubt seriously I EVER get it!!!
Too bad..I could really spend that money really well!!! ROFL
as long as I meet TAT on my ....
doctors. I have a responsibility of a few doctors and as long as there work is all in within TAT I get to pick when I work. I think these kind of jobs are more IC jobs, so keep your eyes open on the board for IC jobs were you can make your own hours. I am sorry for all the rudeness on this board. I think people look for any way to cut or degrade or turn around anything anybody posts here.
as long as I meet my TAT
Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. That's basically what I'm looking for and basically what I do now. I guess it must have come out wrong because farther down in the posts I noticed one similar to mind worded differently and there were no rude emails in response to that post.
Yes I cannot meet my quota
Hope we pick up soon
They want you to meet your daily
lines counts. I don't think that is asking for too much.
How easy or difficult is it to meet your
line requirements with their accounts and typing platform?
No, it's per pay period and relatively easy to meet!
I'd be happy to answer any questions.
I did not meet my line count...sm
and I worked a few extra hours on my days off to try to get more lines, but there wasn't much work then either.
Leads actually are expected to meet
a certain quota like everyone else. Otherwise, they'd starve. Leads have to pay their bills like everyone else.
Thanks for your help, but I don't think I could ever meet the quota needed. sm
I am working all the time editing/fixing and trying to remember all the rules for each account. I do not see with the way the platform is ever being able to make the amount needed to keep my insurance, and they have already extended my insurance for me before. I thought when I started doing more editing I might be able to get more lines, but then I would have to do double the lines, and with the way the reports are looking when I see them there is too much fixing to ever get there. It looks like when the computer does not know what the doctor is saying in plain English it just types whatever it wants. It is actually amusing how it comes up with a whole sentence of unrelated words.
I don't understand. Even as an IC, there are deadlines to meet for the client.
Got an email wanting to know why I did not meet my production.....
12+ hours a day, 30 yrs exp, and can't make ends meet?
How many lines do you type in that 12+ hours a day? What is your line rate? Get incentives?
Even if you typed 100 lines an hour, that's 1200 lines a day at 8 cpl that would $96 a day.
What in the world are you paying for rent?! lol
You will work many hours over 40 to meet your lines nm
1100 lines a day which is EASY to meet sm
I am fairly fast, but I got that 1100 on MY VERY FIRST DAY!!!
Lines are easy to get and I have so much work, it is unreal. I can and want to go all day and past it. I still have 4.75 hours to make up this week, but the work is holding at a high level and they are so low stress, I am not tired right now after 9.5 hours today, just want a break for a bit and a hot meal, then back to it.
I can't say enough good things about this place, I just can't.
Yes, 10 cpl for the first 6 pay periods if you meet the 1300 lines, sm
8 cpl if you do not. After the 6 pay periods, if you become an employee, then the rates change. I think 10 cpl then was only for 3rd shift.
I just wanted a part-time position, but the 10 cpl sounded rather attractive. Of course, it doesn't matter how much someone pays if you don't have the work or can't make the lines.
Thanks again for your input. We'll see if I even passed the test.
But if COMPANY is reason cant meet production,
Are the goals hard to meet? How long do they give you to get there? (nm)
Maybe so, her work was bad & she didn't meet line counts
My thoughts exactly. Need an IC job so can deduct equipment, etc without having to meet 7.5% rule.
My normal company gives garbage as equipment, and I can't meet the rule for unreimbursed employee expense because I'm a high producer and don't have the other expenses that you can add to it.
Failure to meet production goals could be interesting...
Since they haven't had enough work for most of us for a few months now.
Maybe we're ALL on that list.
At TransHealth, once you meet your minimum required line count...sm
(I believe it is 11,000 for full-timers), there are levels for every x number of lines above your minimum,and you get extra cpl for those lines. It is incremental, so the more you transcribe above your minimum, the higher your cpl. It can boost your paycheck by $500 if you really haul. They also pay a weekend differential of extra cpl for weekend work.
I think most companies work that way. Bonus pay is usually an increase in cpl when you exceed your minimum.
I've not had much experience with incentive pay prior to TransHealth - so there may be many other ways that bonus pay is given. Works for me though.
What about keeping a timesheet? Is that required since you just meet a line count? SM
Do you have to keep track that you worked at these certain hours each day, or do you just log on and work and meet your line count and not care what time it is?
With Transtech insurance, do you have to meet deductible before office visits are covered? nm
Well, what do they do when people dont meet their required lines due to no work. Most ridiculous
thing I ever heard of. Overhire and then I expect MTs are to work 24/7 to get in required lines. Nothing like making a total fool out of people. Hardly worth making minimum wage now is it.
Good Company, but yes very strict supervisor or mine was anyway! As long as you meet the deadline
you are safe! They were strict when I was with them though
