In Reply to: Any info on SOFTSCRIPT - KS
They are a very good company to work for. I have been with them as an Editor for 7 months. Pay is very good. Unfortunately I don't believe they pay for spaces, but a lot of companies do not anymore, so therefore, you would have to decide if that is acceptable to you or not. You can get a very flexible work schedule. The only thing they ask is that you work when you are scheduled. For a while, there was a lot of emails being sent out, but that has significantly decreased since certain people are gone now. Every company has its ups and downs as we can read on these boards every day. SoftScript is not perfect, but they are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be either.

Any recent info on MedTrans Unlimited? newest archived info is 9 months old... m
Has anything changed in 9 months? Particular worries are the invoice/pay time; one post mentioned 2 to 3 week wait and another post stated 1 week. Info from the company states pay is sent out 10 days after the last day of the billing period, but we all know what is said and what is done isn't always the same. Another concern is the platform; some mentioned it was slow and cumbersome. They have 2 platforms from what I can gather.. Are they both slow? It seemed like certain specialties were done on certain platforms, or at least that is what I got out of the archives. I really hate to jump from the frying pan to the fire so any info would be VERY much appreciated.. the good, bad, and the ugly! TIA!!
Any Axolotl employees willing to share info., platform, ESL %, etc. All info greatly appreciated. sm
Along with the platform, ESL %, pay range, lpd required, split shift or 12-24 hour window available, I would be interested in knowing your personal experience with this company, what type of relationship you have with supervisors and other coworkers, etc. Otherwise, the all the 411.
Current info on Diskriter?? Past info was very mixed. Either MTs hated it or liked it, does anyone
love working there and why? Do you easily meet your incentive pay or as past people have said, the ESL are so bad that you never meet the line count. I need current and new information. Isnt there a company out there that has a handful of happy employees or does all of them have both the haters and lovers. It is so hard to sort out fact from fiction sometimes and all of us have different expectations. It kind of goes along with the one man's junk is another man's treasures theory, I suppose.

Does anyone have any info on...
Digital Transcription, Inc. I am looking into a part-time job and need to know how this company is to work for. Thanks.
Here's some info...
I asked the same question a couple days ago and got some VERY VERY negative responses. I actually told the recruiter that they had a negative reputation on these boards and she seemed flabergasted. I needed an employee position and they hire only IC. Pay is 9 cents/65 char line with spaces. They have 2 hospital accounts they are hiring for; one they will send you a computer and you will use their requipment. The other requires purchase of a C-phone. They are standard 4 hospital. You must commit to a minimum line count (1000 lines per day). No benefits. Direct deposit twice a month.
I was not impressed and was glad when i discovered they were only looking for IC.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. NM
my take on it and where to go for more info
All aspects of transcription are here to stay, there will always be in-house, home-based and off-shore MTs for every speciality, pathology and radiology included. There are just to many more doctors and patients than there are qualified MTs.
I personally attended a community college with a 9 month MT program that included an unpaid internship in a hospital acute care and radiology department to graduate. I would recommend finding an accredited community college who offers a remote MT course with payment plan rather than going through any of the online schools that are not accredited as a real school. If you go the www.AHIMA.org, there is a link where you can find MT, RHIT and RHIA programs all over the country from actual colleges and find out if they offer distance education for that program as well. Most are now about $2400 and do allow payment plans and financial aid.
Thanks for the info. sm
Can you tell me anything about equipment - do they provide?
Also, how is SE different from regular employee or IC?
Thanks for your help!
Pay average, benefits costly. Check prior postings for the account with heavy ESL that posters talked about. You won't make lines on that. Specify up front what you will be working on. They overhire.
need info on Spheris - how are they to work for, good or bad, their platform how easy or hard it is to use, their supervisors, their pay, etc. Anything information would be greatly appreciated.
I'd like that info, as well, please.
Not the OP, but I appreciate your info. I'm looking
Any info on Global?
I am currently a part-time Webmedx employee. As of recently, I am frequently running out of work and is not getting all my hours in during the week. I am unable to sit around all day to clock in and out when work is available (I do have a full-time job, thank god). I am not saying all accounts are, but I believe some are overstaffed. I guess it just all depends on what account(s) you are assigned to, and who knows you may be lucky. But other than that, itís a good company as far as the people and the money (when I get all of my hours). I am not saying not to give it a try, because this is just from my experience and others may be differ.
Also, very improvement, read a post made on Webmedx on 12/13 by a long-term Webmedx employee. This will help. Gook luck!!
p.s. you CAN get the info without going through
While it is customizable, usually the format is divided into sections. You may have a spelling/grammar section, a medical terminology section, and then the actual transcription section where you type from a preselected group of voice files. Usually most of the information in the first two sections is multiple choice or fill in a word sort of thing. There is a timer function available for the employer to see how long it took you, but in my experience no one has really commented on that part - they just want it accurate. Hope that helps a little and good luck!!
I have info for you if you want it !..see msg
