I appreciate info on different companies...

There HAS to be SOMETHING to what they say about these companies.  If not, then why so many unhappy MTs?  Like another poster stated, deleting the posts from this forum does not delete it from our memories, and someone will be back on here complaining about the same or new things as long as they are not being heard by the company.  If it bothers ____'s management team so much, then maybe they should listen to their MTs and treat them with the respect that they deserve.  These MTSOs wouldn't be anywhere without its MTs, so why not try and make them happy.  I am so glad we have a forum like this to share our good/bad experiences.  You know the MTSOs can't stand it because they cannot take complete advantage of us, which is what most of the companies I have worked for tried to do to their MTs---as long as they are making their money off the sweat of our backs.  It seems like KS can dish out the misery but can't take it when people start talking about it...just my opinion.  Keep talking and sharing experiences, good and bad.  Maybe this forum and others will force them to do right by us, especially regarding compensation.  We have to work together and try to make the MT profession better. 


Need info on 3 companies please (sm)
Archivus, AllType, and TRX.  Opinions on each please and if not good, please say why.  TIA

eTrans Plus, Hand Sten-Tel, Medical Linguistics Transcription and Consulting, Med-Type LLC, ProScribe, TransHealth, and TransPAT & Associates.

If you know of any other companies in mid-TN region, please let me know.

Thanks much!
Does anyone have info on any of these companies?
Cbay?  Nicholas Trans.? Mx Secure? MedLinks? Chronicle? Diskriter? Oracle?  Anyone have any info you could give me regarding any of these?  I am getting overwhelmed with all the different companies and would appreciate any input on these, good or bad.  Thanks!
Need info on 3 companies.
Anyone have recent experience with RI Unlimited, Inc.? I read the posts in the archives, but they’re back in ‘74. I appreciate any info. Also, what about MedQuest, LTS Inc., and C&C Transcription? I’m involved in testing for a job and have tested for all three.

Thanks so much!
Info on MT companies
I will be getting laid off in the very near future after 17 years as an in-house MT. We transcribed from tapes and so I do not have any experience working at home, using a wav pedal or software MT companies use. Are there any good companies willing to train in these areas? Can anyone give me information about Deventure, Precyse or MD-IT good or bad?
Need info on these companies please!

I have been offered jobs from these companies and I would really appreciate any input from those who work for them now, or have previously.  I am scared to death of not making the right choice here, and it is very important to me as I am a single person with no one to fall back on for income, I am what I am! 

The companies are:  Axolotl, Keystrokes, Diskriter and Focus.  Thank you SO much for any direction you can give me! :)

Any info on these companies?
Regarding pay, acute or clinic, bennies, flexibility, anything else you care to add. ExecuScribe, p.r.n. Transcription, Probity.

Need new info on companies that pay weekly

I am leaving my in-house employment and would love any information that can be given to me regarding companies that pay weekly.  I have a done a search, but haven't found any recent information.  I appreciate any help you can offer. 


Thank you!

Any info on companies that still use the C-phone and own computer. tia nm
Any info on Diskriter? Other companies FT with bennies?
I keep seeing jobs for home-based MTs with hospital benefits, employed by the hospital system in Florida, etc. I'd sure appreciate if anyone could provide info on this company. I've love to be in a work situation like this again, but know nothing about the company. I'm sick and tired of MQ. Need a FT situation with good benefits and MQs are so expensive and I think the out of pocket is ridiculous compared to what I've always had in the past. Thanks so much.
The archives are your friend for info on companies...
Any info on these companies? Fenton, TRX, Metro (in Georgia), Cobb, etc

Comprehensive Healthcare Service, Keystrokes, MDI-MD, and TSSC.  Would appreciate the following info.

Good dictation quality?

Steady work?

What are the work types?

Good platform?

Pay rate?

Paid for 65 cpl with spaces?

Do you have a flexible schedule?

Weekend work mandatory?

Employee or IC?


Low or high volume ESLs?

Dedicated accounts with the same doctors?

Dialup accepted?


Up to date info on Zylomed? People change and companies do to...(sm)
I need current information from MT's that do or have worked for Zylomed (Naples, FL) in the last year. If you've had a bad experience with them 2 or 3 years ago, don't bother writing. People change and companies do too! I need the real skinny on what's happening now. I would really appreciate hearing from current employees! Thanks so much!
companies change all the time - her info is old, she said. (sm/small message)
A turnover in managers,QA, leads, even recruiters can make an impact and happens all the time, so you never know; old info - grain of salt. newer info more reliable and needs to be found while considering.

Companies that have training for new hires - do most pay by hour during 1-2 weeks? any info? nm
TransTech and Medware, are these companies considered large, medium-sized or small companies? (sm)
Yikes.. That is only inline with companies like Focus and such. "Real" companies pay their MTs
decent rate.  I make over 5 cpl editing. So, if I got that slap in the face, I'd be outta there.
Do the research...most companies, and not just MT companies, do not pay for maternity leave...
we get time off but not paid...and I really don't even understand the point of you posting this...
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.

Any new info on Amphion? Archive search doesn't provide new info (sm)
Looking for a part-time position with decent pay and decent workflow. There's nothing new in the archives.
How do you know which companies are Nationals and which are smaller companies.
Is there a list somewhere? I'm new to this.
By "most of the companies", I meant MORE than MT companies.
Sten-Tel is the platform. Different companies use it, pay and how companies run are different. nm
Need info on eMTS out of Florida. Any info would be appreciated!
Any new updates on Focus for QA? Good info/bad info? sm msg
I checked the archives and read all the messages.  Have things changed for the better here?  Is there steady, reliable work?  Able to make any decent money?  Thanks!
Nobody said MT companies were not for profit companies. (sm)....
As MTs we are an important segment of what it takes for the company to thrive, but we are still just part of the whole structure.

Not trying to be argumentative, just think sometimes we get that "I'm the quarterback" attitude and forget that we can't get anywhere without our line men.
Companies that outsource to other companies?
Anyone know of any reliable companies that will outsource to American companies and pay a decent line rate? I am amazed at what the companies charge and then want to offer in this business anymore.

Any info on Sten-Tel..not much info
Any info is appreciated.
Sorry, but I want info, lots of info...
before I make any decisions about what comes next in my work life.

Would you like fries with that, Sir? Welcome to WalMart! How'm I doing so far? Do I sound sincere yet? (At least these two companies are, and always will be, USA-based.)
2 companies with that name. Was this the NJ job? nm
I have been through a lot of companies and
they are all the same.  I just found that out not too long ago.  I am with a company now that everyone cheers about.  They are just the same as everyone else.  Nothing to cheer about IMO.  This business has gone downhill fast.  Sad.
What companies, if any,
. . .

. . . hire and actually promote professionals who have forgotten more than many MTs know, have years and years of experience, work when needed, don't rock the boat, and produce excellent work?  At my company, the editors and managers usually have just a few years of experience as an MT, if any, and many have no management experience.  Some managers have never even seen a typed document.  That doesn't make sense.  What companies give one a chance to actually grow with them?  Any of them?  How do the promotions go to those who took an on-line class and have been an MT for 2 years?  Kudos to anyone who could answer this . . . Bewildered 

He said that some companies do that, but
usually when they do there is a reason for it, so told me to keep an eye out for future class action lawsuits or that sometimes they use it as a means to withhold severance pay, etc.  IMO - basically it's a CYA letter.  Atty agreed.  But again, IMO, why be worried about a CYA letter if you have nothing to CYA for?  Any company that wants ex-employees to sign a release from future lawsuits is definitely not up for nomination for Employer of the Year, that's for sure and just one more bit of proof that it isn't the MLSs at fault.   I'm not concerned about it, but I'm sure as heck not signing it either.  I just think it's hilarious that a few Transcend groupies come out of the woodwork ready to blame the MLSs that left as if they weren't the GOOD transcriptionists and that's why they left.  Seems to me if they weren't any good they wouldn't be able to get hired anywhere and so would want to stay put where they know they have a sure thing.
Some Companies...
Charge you per report for their useless template. What a rip off...
QA Companies
Anyone who works as a QA; I am curious as to what you think of the company you work for?  Good or bad.  Looking for a new QA position and would like some information on the companies.  Thanks.
Here are some companies
First Choice Medical
QT Medical
JLG - some accounts still on WP.

That is all I know of right now.

Good luck.
Some Companies Pay Less
Some companies, especially small ones, lure you in by starting you at less and tell you that once you're off probation in a couple of weeks your line rate will be raised a couple of cents.  Months later, despite quality work and that pitch-in attitude during backlog periods, you're still making 6 cents a line.  A lot of good begging does....What a joke these companies are...........
Any companies out there?


1.  ENT, cardiology, family practice or internal medicine work.

2.  Require a minimum line count of 500 lines a day with the option to do more.

3.  Word based with a 24-hour TAT and have direct deposit with assigned docs/accounts?

Are there any companies out there using DQS except MQ? (sm)
If I were going to try to work 2 companies at the same time until I could decide I thought it would be easier if they used the same program.  This old dog is getting too old to learn too many new tricks at once. 
That would be companies. If you
want to make it in this biz, you have to learn to spell!
Are any companies besides MQ using VR right
Not sure of any companies (sm)
I've worked on it for hospitals.  I am not aware of any MTSO's that use it.
Diskriter has some ChartScript accounts.  A lot of hospitals use ChartScript also.  I used it with my in-house job.  Very productive platform. 
None of the companies do! That's the name of the
There are probably less than 5 companies
(and that is probably stretching it) that don't offshore.  I've interviewed with probably 8 companies the last 6 months, all either offshored or had less to offer me than QT.   I immediately turned down all the companies that offshored (that I knew did anyway) and all the others I turned down because it would have been a significant cut in pay.   We have a no frills lifestyle as it is so there isn't room to take a cut in pay. 
With all the companies looking for MTs
I don't understand why you are thinking unemployment.   I think you have to be unemployed xx days before you are eligible anyway.  
Which companies use - sm
ftp sites?
