Anyone working for Medscribe? How strict are they about 12-hour window? What if you get a late start and need to work past the 12-hour window? Is that a problem? TIA!

Yes, MedScript in Florida, not to be confused with MedScribe.
MDI-MD gives you a 24-hour window sm
to do your lines for the day, whatever you committed to.  The pay is great, and hte accounts are easy.  You do have to pay your own LD, but with so many unlimited plans available, that is really not a big deal for me.  They hire statutory employees, which means they take out your FICA (and match), but no other taxes.  Good luck!
12-hour window
I was offered a job with Spheris in 2/06 and they had
12-hour window schedules at that time.
12 hour window
I also have been looking for this situation. Even a 10-12 hour window would be great. It seems like this could be win-win for both the MT and company because of the need for flexibility on both ends.
Yes, 12-hour window
Also, don't need a second phone line, it's an Internet platform.
MDI-MD gives you a 24-hour window
MDI-MD I believe has a 24-hour window
that is pretty darn flexible if you ask me.
12 hour window
Well I wonder why they told me they no longer allowed the 12-hour window because it was just too crazy form them to deal with. I specifically asked, and the recruiter specifically told me no 12-hour window, I would have to work a set 8-hour shift with a 1/2 hour lunch break and 2 other 15-minute breaks.  That was a big deal breaker for me, if they had allowed the 12-hour window as mentioned here on mtstars I might have seriously considered going with them.
12-hour window.
Been with OSi a while. Never heard of a 12-hour window. Have always asked me for a set schedule. Does it depend on the account you are on?
The 12-hour window has been tried and sm
tossed at a number of different companies.  Reason?  It is abused by people (probably not you).  They never really manage to get those 8 hours within the 12.  That's why companies try it and then decide to scrap it.
...but they have a 24-hour window...
Still may be a good fit if you can fit it in in the early morning or late when kids are asleep.
can you handle a 12-hour window?
Our company is offering a bonus right now, as they are taking on a couple of new accounts.  It depends on so much, because where I find them great to work for, others have not. 

I have been here about six months, and have never had one issue about scheduling; however, I do work the days I have committed to, just that they have a 12-hour window in which to do it.  My supervisor has also never bothered me for the occasional flexibility, and one of the administrators even told me to go ahead and work however I want on the weekend, whether it is Saturday or Sunday. 

You do punch a timeclock, but after I got used to it, it only has helped me as you actually make a bonus for lines/hour, which if you clock in an out say an hour at a time, you get can that pretty high. 

There is a lot of ESL, but plenty of help and information to help you...

Please feel free to E if you need to...
TRS allowed a 12-hour window to do
an 8-hour shift, at least they did last year. I only worked there a month, though.

Are there companies who do not require a strict schedule to get your work done, so you have a little flexibility to work your hours in a day?

Thank you so much for your information.  I am really hoping it will be a good change.  I just really want something that I like that I can stay with for the next 40+ years :)
MDI-MD has 24-hour window, SE status
No benefits but they hold out some taxes and you take care of the rest. They give you a 24-hour window to do a set amount of lines that you commit to ahead of time for that particular day. Extra work above that is usually allowed if you want to as long as your account isn't low.
12-hour window schedules are offered
by Spheris.

I would like to know what companies offer a 12-hour window.  I ask if anyone that knows of any will please let me know.

Thank you so much for your time,


Isn't Phoenix MedCom 600 lpd w/ 12 hour window?
I always thought I would try them if I needed PT because they give you all day to do it.
Twelve-hour window companies (sm)

I know this has probably been asked before, but I'd like to know of some companies alow 8 hours of work within a 10- to 12-hour window?  I don't mind punching in and out, I just can't sit for 8 hours nonstop and produce like I need to.  I know other factors are important, but I think that's where I'm going to start this time.   BTW, no need to offer up MQ.  I work for them PT, just need a good FT right now.  Thanks!

I have 12- hour window and was hired 1 year ago. nm

Just wondering about the flexibility. 
No Shift Requirements at MDI...Just 24-hour window
Sorry, couldn't let that falsehood go by unchecked.

I've worked at MDI-MD for several months, and THERE IS NO SET SCHEDULE. You have a 24-hour window to get your lines done. You choose the days you wish to work. Not once has anyone ever contacted me to see where I am or what time I will be on. Somedays I get my lines done in a single sitting; other times, I spread it out over the allotted window.

Nope, don't know if it's changed since perhaps you ICd for them or if you've been misinformed, but there is no set shift.
I just interviewed with them, they told me a 1-hour window flexibility.
Anyone know of any companies that let you work within a 24 hour time window? sm

I am wondering if there are any companies that let you work anytime you want as long as you get your daily or weekly line count in?  Thanks....

I have many, many years experienced and was just told a little while back, even though I am an IC, that I have to have a set schedule...And I am struggling to follow the set schedule due to family illness....

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Any companies hire to transcribe with a 12 or 24 hour window
I am wondering if anyone can tell me of a reputable company who gives a window of like 12 to 24 hours to get your lines in (part-time), instead of an hourly schedule.  I'd sure appreciate if you'd share this info with me.  I've worked a long time in this business and I'm looking for something like that with flexibility.  I appreciate your help.
Are there any companies that allow you a 12-24 hour window to complete work?
MDI-MD has a 24-hour window, no time clock to punch
Webmedx 12 hour window question.. Do you have to time in and out? (sm)

Do you get to choose the 12 hour window hours?  

Do you really mean they are that flexible.  Say you have to go to school and pick up a sick child, do you have to notify anyone you will be leaving your computer or can you just go and tend to business as long as you work your 8/12? 

Sorry, that does seem to be more than 1 question.

12 hour window on my accts - pay for acute good. (sm)
Work flow steady, weekend and shift differentials, OT offered at times.

I think things are different for some people depending on the TAT and specifics for their accounts.

Talk to a recruiter, they can give you much more info.

12 hour window? OSI changing policy, job hunting

Does anyone know which companies allow a 12 hour window to work your shift?  Can you post the name if you know of one. 

OSI had announced they will now having employees punch in and out starting the 16th and this will not work for me.  That was the whole reason I went with the company 4 months ago.  I work my scheduled days, every day.  Never call in.  Work OT as needed.  I work on an acute care account with multiple dictators doing all work types for a group of hospitals, don't mind that.  But I need flexibility in the hours I work.  The reason I work at home is so I can take the kids to school or be here if they're sick, etc. The reason I work at home is so I'm not chained to a desk for 8 hours straight.  I'm very disappointed. I thought OSi was going to be a very good fit for me. 


It sounds like they're eliminating the 12 hour window
I received an email a little while ago stating they're going to keep track of who's tardy, not working, etc.
Absolutely - I work off FTP and have a 24-hour window to return files.
I work my own schedule daily and keep my TAT. It is that simple. No big deal. I download my files late in the evening, transcribe the next day and upload them late in the evening.

Whatever works!
MDI-MD hires part-time, and you have a 24-hour window to do your quota. nm
MDI-MD hires statutory employes, 24-hour window, and good pay. nm

Good luck. 

Your kidding yourself; NO 12-hour window at Transtech AT ALL! You work your schedule EXACTLY !
This is a fact and all TT MT's know this.
think, people! If she does 250 lines/hour, same docs daily, will make $15/hour
100,000/year - no way. I charge $35/hour and work 10 hour days - sm
