MedScribe - The OP position sounds SO tempting,

Posted By: but the acute care has $1000 bonus! on 2008-12-02
In Reply to:

Yikes! That sounds too good to pass up, but I love, absolutely love Op reports.  I just have a question for anyone who might know - do they ever provide a computer??  I just hate to go thru the whole application on line thing, which will probably include testing, etc., when I just need that first question answered! I have several computers, but prefer using company computer if possible. Thanks for any info!

Any opinions on MedScribe, Jacksonville, FL - been offered a position
I have been offered an ER position and was just wondering if there is any CURRENT feedback on this company -- MedScribe Information Systems, Inc.  Pay is not great but sounds like the benefits will make up for it.  Need opinion on the platform and how difficult is it to make the required line counts.  Any opinions would be great, and email me if you would rather.  Thanks in advance
Sounds like you need an IC position
sounds like MedScribe Florida
Actually the staff used to be at softscribe and a bunch of them went together to Medscribe or so I heard. But sounds like the same deal. I went into a depression working for them. They were just too harsh and for no reason... just cracking the whip... what a turn off to professional MTs.
sounds more like an employee position, no?

From job board:

Nu Transcription

Hours: Mon-Fri 8AM to 5 PM.
You must be available during these times and meet a 2 to 4 hour STAT for MRI reports only.
24 hour TAT on other.

This is an IC position.

Sounds like an employee position to me
You're being taken for a fool.  ICs should all work from a pool.  These MTSOs want their cake and eat it too.  What you just described sounds like an employee.  An IC does not give notice.  I've covered for my IC job for people that give no notice when taking off and it's never a problem.  I can wake up and not type at all.  I can also take off whenever I want, but that doesn't mean I want have work either.  I type from a pool.
I haven't started yet, but it sounds like the IC is truly an IC position. sm

While you are training, you are expected to work days, then it sounded like they leave you on your own.   You are required to work 1 weekend a month if you do not have a weekend day in your normal rotation.  Everyone is an IC until you have completed 6 pay cycles (3 months), then you have the option of becoming an employee.  Your rate of pay is determined somewhat by your line count.

As for the platform, it is their own.  They say it is easy to use, that it is Word-based.  There was a post below saying it is NOT MT friendly, so I really do not know.

I am not sure if this helps, but I'll tell you anything I know -- just at this point what I know is not much.   Good luck!  

The DQS is an IC position and the Dictaphone EXtext is an employee position....
both part time...both making 9.5 cents per line...which is better IC or employee?
Thanks :)
I'm hoping too as I accepted position a position also nm
sure sounds swell. Sounds like 2350 ln/day @ 4 cents/ln=$90./day
in order to figure how many line needs to be produced to make $500 per pay period. ie, how many lines an hour needed per 8 hour day --at your rate.

So say $450 a week would be $90 a day.
For example, if making 4 cents a line,need 2,250 lines a day, 281 an HOUR (to listen through and edit) to make this great wage of $90. a day FOR ALL THIS SAME SKILL, TO KEEP UPDATED WITH CHANGING MEDICAL COMMUNITY. nope Better at Jack-in-Box Pass it up.
Is the AC a salaried position or hourly? If the position is salaried, there is
no such thing as overtime, at least not at any places I've worked. I've been in salaried positions before and you work until the job is done or delegate it to someone you know will get it done. Only hourly employees are subject to OT pay.
Sounds like it and it sounds like you must tell them when they will be and no change them. Wonder
what you do when there is no work. Well, there will be a lot of problems with this whole plan if they dont get things straightened out with this no work situation.
That's MEDSCRIBE, sorry. nm
Medscribe---RUN AWAY
BEware of Medscribe......... Listen to this.......I've had Susan interviewing and calling me for three months on an Editor position at $17/hr.  Well, after being told I did NOT get the job (even tho I was never tested), she had the nerve to call me back a week later and said the job reopened and she wanted me for it. I tried calling her and leaving messages for three days.  She never returned my calls.  I finally got ahold of her and she had the NERVE to tell me that the original person changed their mind and took back the position?  Did anyone ever hear of this?  So to all of you out there.......stay clear of Susan!!!!
SM, Yes it is all about me....it is about how all of us as potential hires should be treated. Besides, Ms. L did not even test for the QA position.....so the question is, was there really a position????
No, I'm sure she thinks ONLY about what is good for her not caring about how she plays around with other people. Sorry, but I don't have to take this kind of treatment and let her know it.
They're not the only one I've been working with one here in Canada and the same thing. I thought maybe it was me that was wrong but that's what they did too..mind you we got $1.50 to put up with it and work ha work we did or at least me!!!!
What's the story with these people? I tested before Christmas and never heard back (I know I did well).  Today they didn't answer an Email.  Should I keep on truckin'?
Things can change a lot in FOUR YEARS. I cannot imagine they would have been able to keep up that practice and still be around today. Maybe a person should simply ask them about the incident four years ago; you'd have nothing to lose and as an applicant, I would think they would HAVE to tell the truth about it. The problem is sometimes just ONE incident can get out of hand, repeated a little differently, and a different story could come out other than the real story. I'm not saying your friend didn't get paid. I'm just saying NO company could get away with this kind of protocol and still be in business.
MedScribe in FL

anyone have a clue why Medscribe is constantly advertising for MTs?


I don't know why, but whenever I post about this company it is not able to be found in the archives. I have posted many times about how miserable I was while working there. I didn't trust their line counter but I think worst of all was the way the talked down to me and scolded me for not making line counts which by the way... i normally could do but their accounts are MOSTLY re recorded and very VERY bad ESLs.... on top of a faulty line counter.

I did three weeks with them. Only filling in headers, sent to office where THEY input the macros (which we did not get paid for doing, of course) and I think I averaged about $3 per hr. A friend of mine got stiffed for her paycheck and they got threatened with illegal interstate activity because they were doing their business over state lines via phone. She got her money but it tooks MONTHS. This was a couple of years ago, but I don't think they've changed. Stay away from this place. The owner is a classical jerk.

I am interested hearing about your experiences there.  I read the story about the gal who had to sue to get paid, and before I went to work there, I asked about it.  They denied it vehemently, but in the proceeding 4-6 months, I had 2 checks that went missing.  I really do not know if it was the fault of the post office or not, but I was not impressed.  I also am not very impressed by the support system in place at this point, but would rather dish that privately.

I have been considering other employment because I always meet my minimum line count, and my quality scores seem to average in the 98% range, and I rarely take time off, but having only worked for HealthScribe (which I would almost take back right now) and MedScribe, I really don't know  what a good company looks like.  I am pretty specific at this point about what I want in a company, but it seems like they tell you what you want to hear and is not necessarily true. 

Does anyone work for Medscribe and if so, can I get some feedback - considering working with them.  Thanks.
Medscribe NY
Anybody working for MedScribe?  If so, how do you like it? 

I have never heard of this company.  Where are they located?

Hope you find out the information that you need.



medscribe NJ
I would if i did have some!
medscribe NJ
Does anyone have info on medscribe out of NJ?  there seems to be one in Florida but would really like to know if anyone has experience with medscribe in NJ.  Thank you in advance.

Wow.  I was just about to apply because their ad sounded good.  I read the archives and realize I sidestepped a mess.  I want to thank all of you for coming together and sharing your experiences so that others are forewarned.


Archives stuff is old, old.  Sounds good - 12 hour time period to work. Please, anyone know anything?

MedScribe does only pays between 7 and 7.5 cpl full-time IC.  There is an incentive bonus plan in place (if you are full-time) where if you fullfull all of your line commitments it is another 0.08 cpl, and they will place an additional 0.05 cpl for CMT status. 

A family policy will run you more like $195 per week (dental and vision extra)for the $500 deductable plan.
I like it at MedScribe
So far so good, little over 6 months.  Happy with the line rate and the insurance, my supervisor is very nice too.  They must have added some accounts because I have heard they are hiring right now.  I have not worked for the other 2 companies you mentioned, but did come from a rather big company and I like that I can call MedScribe and reach someone.  Hope that helps.
Hello.  Does anyone know if MedScribe in Jacksonville, FL, is a good company to work for?  Also, on another note, have "they" decided to drop the hypen from "well-developed, well-nourished?"   Thanks.       LLD       
I have been with MedScribe
they have been a fine company to work for.  I liked the training and support from my supervisor is professional.  I also came from a previous company that issued checks, so now having direct deposit is a blessing in my life.  They are OK by me, I hope that helps.  Good luck to you.  Karen.
Medscribe FL

Anyone willing to share Medscribe's acute care line rate and what their average LPH are working at Medscribe?  Thanks.


I started with MedScribe about 7 months ago and so far so good.  They have a 12-hour window to do your work within, but that is for acute care work only I was told.  The sign-on bonus is paid out $100 a pay period once you get out of training and up to speed, so that was nice too.  I have seen emails where they are starting a new hospital account, maybe they are hiring.  Hope that helps. 
Sorry for the confusion.  I should have been more careful before posting.  It is Medscribe, FL. 
I started with them almost a year ago, platform is easy to learn and you can use normals and templates for ERs, plus you are paid for all of them.  I have the healthcare only, did not take the dental or vision as I pay that myself, but the medical is a nice policy. 
Very happy there and like the flexibility.  Hope this helps.
Medscribe FL - please

any relatively recent comments. ** I KNOW** I can search archives, but I would like some fresh input. Thanks in advance.


I have been with MedScribe for
I always have work in my account pool, they are super friendly and I like the direct deposit every other Friday.  Big difference from chasing checks where I came from.  I may also add you do not need a second phone line, the platform is all Internet.  Karen.
MedScribe ER
The platform is easy to learn and the training is very good.  I type ERs and they do ask for a schedule, but they worked with my needs and we came up with something that worked for both of us and I am quite happy.  Benefits are about $37 a week and they are good, very low deductable.  Pay is direct deposit and I have had plenty of work, good line count.  I use InstaText and it converted right over so that made me happy too.  Good luck, I hope that helps.
for me, I like the people and my primary gives me a good line count.  Insurance is not too expensive and we get paid vacation and holiday pay.  Good luck in your search. 
MedScribe is 35 hrs
MedScribe IC
I think it is only the IC contracts, we have 20% of our contract on weekends, anytime.  The remainder can be done during the week.  Plenty of work, we have a national account that adds new hospitals and I know they are hiring. Nice people in the Jax office if you ever need help with your computer or anything.
MedScribe FL
Can you tell the usual - good/bad experiences? I appreciate all input. Thanks!
Medscribe FL MTs
Can you tell me if weekend work is required at Medscribe as well as any other info like flexibility with hours, etc? TIA.
Medscribe, FL
Can anyone tell me about Medscribe, FL and their ER accounts ASAP as I am about to sign on with them.  Mainly my question is do they pay on time, are they a good company, the usual questions.  I really do not want to jump out of the frying pan into the fire.  Anything helpful.  Thanks
