It is not a company. This is a hospital, not a MT company.

I went from hospital to company
This is just my experience though. I am sure it is different for everybody. I had much better pay and better benefits at the hospital. I also liked having my work done in 8 hours and leaving it there and going home. What I mainly miss though is the $145 a month health coverage for the whole family. It had a $100 deductible. Also, I knew the area well and spent less time on Google than I do now.
The cons were the favoritism, office politics, pressure to buy stuff from charities, kids soccer teams, coworker's MLMs. Plus we were all on production and the hourly people (other MR personnel) never completely understood and would talk loudly, interrupt us with the latest gossip, had multiple loud phone calls to their kids, spouses and ex-spouses. Books were thrown, slammed down etc. There were cat fights between coworkers.
I really like the work atmosphere at the MTSO better. There is no one here but me. The MTSO is much stricter on quality which is good because of that I feel I have become a better MT. Overall, I do like the MTSO better except the pay, but I really would not recommend one to a newbie because you cannot call someone over to listen.
You won't find anything like that with a company. Hospital sm
benefits are much different, but there aren't many of those jobs left. They are tumbling to the nationals increasingly.
Wmx has 6 paid holidays for all full time employees. Graduated rate of PTO, 5 days first year, 10 days for the next 5. You won't find any company that offers any benefits at all to part time people, as far as I know. The insurance cost at Wmx are cheaper than, and the coverage far superior to, any other companies I have seen.
Well, that would depend on whether you are talking company or hospital. sm
Companies are low paying; however, clients of your own is where the $$$$ is.
VR editing 10 cpl with client
3 cpl with company.
Another company shares accounts at same hospital..
they pay well. contact phoenix med com at phoenixmedcom.com. they do lots of ortho too!
Probably each company has their own rules, but when I was working in a hospital sm
generally, it was 7a-3p for first, 3p-11p for second, and 11p-7a for third, not including lunch breaks.
Hope this helps.
our hospital needs info on a company called ChartNotesPRN - sm
Has anyone ever worked for them? Do they offshore? Please let me know.
Went from hospital to company using DQS, line count has definitely went down, don't get paid for
demographics even if we have to enter them in. I've put a lot more abbrev in my Expander since switching over to DQS to help compensate.
12 cpl editing; 18 cpl transcribing - not working for a company, but a hospital. nm
If the hospital employees know, then the company knows. Keep your mouth shut and get out.
Who did they outsource too? Seems like I briefly worked for a company that did ER for a hospital in
either Wyoming or Montana. I cant remember.
I have a friend working in a hospital and she is looking for a company from home as an employee.
Would anyone care to recommend a good company?
The hospital may pay a line rate to the VR company based on usage...nm
Didn't you post this on 03/04/06 on both the Company Board and the Hospital/Clinic MT Board?
No - it is not always slow! Depends on the company and hospital. I have never been slow this time
Slow time is usually in September when everyone is back to work/school from the summer months.
Been doing this 24 years and never slow this time of year. Actually, I am drowning in work - can't keep up.
Like I said - it depends who you work for. I work for a hospital at home - not a company. nm
I've been with the company almost 10 years. I know the truth. Hawaii was a company-paid vacation.
They do not offshore. The owner's original company was bought by MQ; started a new company, whic
That's about all I know. I would give them a try. They sounded good!
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
Must be a small company. I have never talked to the owner of the company I work for. sm
He wouldn't have time. Why would someone talk directly to the MTSO? Most do not know (or care) about the details just the big picture.
I hope my company flies under the radar. This is horrible what happens to one company sm
after another on this board. The owners must have very thick skin. First TT, then Amphion, now Keystrokes. No one is safe. I hope everyone takes all they read with a grain of salt. I have met a few of the owners of the some of the bigger services, and they are all very nice, including those that own Webmedx, Keystrokes, Execuscribe, Medware, MDI and Transcend. I hate to think how they feel when they read things on here, even though they all say they don't read the posts here and advise against it. I don't know how they don't read them; I look just to make sure that no one mentions mine.
Maybe QA made the decision, not the company, and the company managers are not aware of it. sm
I started with a company that did the same thing. When I went to the manager outside of QA, she fixed it right away. Turns out that the QA manager had made a decision to do that and had not told anyone else.
It does make sense to do that though. Find out if it is a few days or longer and base your decision on that.
Can we ask which company or at least which state they're out of?
Unfortunately, I am going to be looking AGAIN due to offshore.
or maybe it's really a good company. Give me a break. If a company isn't talked about sm
on here, good or bad, it's probably too small to matter and does not offer benefits or anything at all.
Ask insider if her company is in position to take on MTs from other company who are familiar
Loyalty has nothing to do with it until you find the company for you. Be loyal to THAT company.
Let me know if you pursue this company. I would like to work for a MN company as an employee?
Let me know! Thanks!
Chasing work from company to company - Have any of you ever watched (sm)
5 year olds learning to play soccer? The ball is in play and no matter what the coahes say ALL the kids go running for the ball. Maybe we are like that, masses of us going from company to company in search of work. This company has a new account BOOM here we go. Now it is out. Let's go here.
Yep, I think it is a big game someone is playing with us. Not a particularly funny one either.
Why would you want to work for a company with no QA? Anyways the only company that comes to mind is
I worked for in the past which is Medquist NJ Radiology.
Love this company - want to retire with this company...sm
Been with them for nearly 2 years now and absolutely love them. I make my living with them - I don't do this for fun money. I think the dictators are pretty decent - you will always have your good and bad ones. You just have to get used to them. I love the account I am on - been with the same one since I started. They are a VERY fair company to work for.
They are not a Fortune 500 company. They are a past INC 500 company. There is a
Just FYI ... the article was in the Rochester Business News. It notes that the person charged with everything was the owner's husband, not Linda herself. It was something that was done at the company that he worked for, not Execuscribe. If their biggest client is going to fill-in reports, I am sure they will bounce back and get something else. I doubt they do not know that it is happening. Any MTSO worth her/his salt keeps an ear to the ground AND has enough contact with their accounts to be up-to-date on changes about to happen, good and bad.
Perhaps you should not be so smug and instead focus your energies on figuring out WHY your customers were able to be taken from you. I hardly doubt that a good business person could be an ex-MTSO because of another service. There is too much work out there.
You can' ask a question directly TO a company. About them, yes. The company isn't going to ans
company going to service company or India?
That is a hard thing to be cut back after you are used to that position. We have a couple of hospitals near here who have turned over all of their work to a Service Company, and one eliminated their department and turned over to India. I am afraid that the service company may be taking over our work also. Understand the others kept same pay, but lost most benefits. Anyone else have this happen to them?
It matters more on the company than the method. Go with a company that does a lot of sm
radiology or it won't matter because you won't have a big check no matter what. Ask them how many radiology accounts they have, if they are overflow or complete department, how long they have had them and do you get a back-up account.
There are very few out there that have good radiology accounts. Stick with the ones that do. I am with Keystrokes for that reason after going with 4 others that kept running out of work.
Small company GREAT COMPANY
Axolotl is a WONDERFUL company with great benefits and competitive pay. We have maybe 100 MTs but are growing rapidly.
Exactly..company recruiters and/or company owners (sm)
Meant every company for every MT, not every company for every company. nm
Started small; great company. Rapid growth; not so great company
First year I was there was like heaven. Then the big growth spurt when they hired managers from another company (that I had run away from before because of their bad management) and let them kind of take over. Although I have no proof it was as though I got 'bumped' by these new people when they came in and I lost a good account, good manager, etc. My paycheck went down every month lower and lower, and it became harder and harder to make my minimal lines. Having any kind of advocate was nonexistent.
It depends on you and what kind of MT you are. Seems to me there are pretty much 2 types...
Sports like basketball where you have the pros who play with finesse, and then you have street players who think it is all about physical strength, period. More and more the physical strength is winning but the art of the game gets lost more and more...
As in this country where there are almost 2 sides now, those with intellect and thoughtfulness, and those who think the only way to be strong and be a leader is to beat up everyone who does not agree with you...and force your will on others.
Suffice it to say in my opinion WMX changed its philosophy of the way it treated employees and lost its heart when it grew, and it was literally almost overnight...
If you are a mass producer who has no care of what it takes to make money, if you are a 'street fighter' then it would probably be for you because you WILL have to fight for everything. Fight for the right account, fight for lines, fight to be treated fairly, etc. If you appreciate MTing for the art of MTing or have any kind of joy for the profession, my guess is you will not make it there very long...
This is happening all throughout the what used to be called profession. Seems to happening all through everything these days. Humanity and heart are being pushed down to the bottom...
how do we work it? Easy answer - work for another company. That happened with the company
I was working for. I would wake up at 4 a.m. AND ON THE WEEKENDS TOO because they needed "coverage" supposedly and I would sit until 9:30 or noon without any work. Sorry, but my rent of $1450/month could not be paid with only $57/day. So I got another job and when I got the equipment and everything, then I quit for the other employer.
AllHealth in GA - Good company, good equipment, any info about this company? (sm)
What type of work do they have? Any op reports? Appreciate any info.
Why not? It is either this company, MQ (most of the time) or another company.
If you don't like it, don't read. That simple.
But they own the other company and it's a big company. Why would they then start
a competing company in the same state? What do you think they are up to?
Good company, bad company? How to tell. sm
Please give your reasons as to why a company is bad. How do we know it wasn't YOUR fault you had a bad experience, like the poster the other day who was fired for poor quality and was totally shocked and bashing the company. It does not help us when someone just says, Yuck, don't go there, or some similar phrase. We can learn more about the different companies if we have more succinct and specific information. We could very quickly amass of list of the bad companies with specific reasons why they are bad. And one person's bad company could very well be someone else's perfect fit. ALso, who knows, if company managers happened to see the reasons, maybe things would change. (Stop laughing so hard, it is just a thought, lol.) Thank you for your time.
I'm sure it varies from company to company.
There are a lot of companies who do not use mttest, but with mttest you can submit your resume and then do the testing immediately. This way the company has your resume and your testing to look at at the same time. I have submitted resumes via posted ads, or I have just posted my resume on the job wanted boards and have been contacted. I was offered one position without any testing at all and even no interview prior to the offer. My current position I was contacted from posting my resume and then they asked me to test.
I'm sure companies don't have time to read all the resumes that come in because they can get upwards of 200 resumes when they post an opening. I was once contacted by a company to submit my resume (don't know where they got my name). I did submit a resume and they sent me a letter via snail mail saying that I did not have enough experience, even though I had 10 years of experience more than they require and they were the ones who contacted me. Some companies say they hold resumes for 6 months. With so much competition for jobs I think companies now take the most experienced and the others get filed or tossed. It is rare that a company contact you to let you know you didn't get the job.
Everyone should contact this company because they must the the best company ever
Apparently, I was one of the lucky ones who passed the Medgarde's transcription test. I received a call from the recruiter that told me I should be so lucky because the waiting list for their company is long and her calendar was booked for an official interview until two weeks from now. At that time, they would have verified the MT school I listed I graduated from and have investigated me. Also, when my two weeks come up, I would be given an hour long interview, 1/2 hour of the test would be general questions regarding things such as my computer and the next portion would be more indepth about medical termionology and transcribing. Last, but not least, the recruiter told me I was lucky to get a call because most do not make it thus far. Well, should I be waiting with bated breath for my interview in two weeks.
There is no best company. Only the company that works for you. sm
I work for a company who gets reamed here regularly. BUT, they work well for me except pay wise. There is no best. Yes, there is a worst.. the ones that don't pay. Truly have to make your own decision sometimes. I did.
I'm thinking NOT..on the company's name. Probably a company with a bad rap
wanting to post anonymously so people will actually apply, but I could be wrong...
Diskriter off off offshores - and on some hospital accounts - they have not informed the hospital
Jewish is the main hospital, St. Mary's is another hospital under their management. (nm)
What is the best company to go to for IC that is a nice company to work for that has work for you
and also is interested if you want to work part time at some point.
First for hospital, then outsourced still on same hospital work
and believe it or not, the hospital was so much easier. Had worked at the hospital for 11 years before they outsourced and then worked another 3+ years for the company they outsourced to. What a difference! The company had so many rules and regulations you could hardly keep up with them all, thousands of them, on the same account, mind you. The higher ups would not leave you alone, constant IMs about any and all. I have gotten to the age where I do not need all that and walked the other week. Have scheduled testing with another hospital for this month. Hope I make the cut, love the hospital work 1000 times more than a company.
I think, as with any company, you
get what you put into it!
That company is so 50-50..
I know people who have had good luck with them and I know people who have been eaten alive by them. Odd!!
