Each has its good points and bad. I just want to make a good choice and have no desire to job hop. Line rate obviously is important but so are benefits.. So help me out if you have any suggestions at all, even a different company to apply with that you think are better than these. Thanks in advance for your ideas and/or suggestions.

Hi NM. Thanks for the info. Have a great weekend.

Hi -- Is anyone familiar with WedMedx Company? Are they good to work for?

Thanks.   LLD                  


I have worked for them for almost three years and have never run out of work even during the holidays and there is OT almost every weekend.  I was given three accounts when I started with them and just recently I was asked if I wanted to add on another account.  They recently have been getting new accounts and just bought a company whose headquarters are in Tennessee.

diskriter, wedmedx
i see there is Diskriter and diskriter, inc - what is the difference and is better than the other?
Can you use your own computer with Wedmedx or
do i have to quit MQ to work for wedmedx
Help!  Do I have to quit my job with MQ to work part-time with Webmedx?
RE: do i have to quit MQ to work for wedmedx
Not unless you want to. Your choice.
MT Productivity of system used by Wedmedx

MTs currently working with Webmedx, please respond on your productivity with the Webmedx system.  I would greatly appreciate your response. 

Also, would like response on sound quality.

Thank you very much.

Recent info on Wedmedx
Does anyone have any recent comments, pros, cons, etc, about this company, I have searched the archives but all I come up with are posts dated either 2005/2006 and would like to know some current info, such as line rate, ESL percentage, steady accounts, how are they to work for?  Any info would be appreciated, either on the board or in an e-mail.  Thanks so much for any information anyone can provide.
Does Wedmedx have a time clock? nm
Can someone tell me how to pronounce the company WedMedX?
Is the *Web* stressed first?  WEB medix?  Or Web MED X? 



How is Wedmedx to work for and pay rate?? Thanks for info

Just curious..

Yeah I was hired by Wedmedx but I screwed up.

They had even sent me the equipment. I was so excited..it was an ortho position and then I have family medical issues and just one thing after another. There was a misunderstanding. I guess I was supposed to get ahold of them with my new start date and I was waiting for them to contact me once I got all of final paperwork in etc. In any event, when I got ahold of them, they said I was supposed to have followed up by now and wouldnt give me a chance. I was so bummed. I havent found a decent place to call home since then. This was like 2-3 months ago. Good luck to you. The insurance was the main reason I was going to go there too.

Has anyone had experience with both eScription and ASR @Wedmedx? I hear a lot of sm
good things about eScription, but I don't have amnything to compare it to (except ASR at Webmedx). Anyone?
Know WedMedx,: Recommend. Good company. SM
Hi, Looking. Yes, you have to log in and out--good structure for people who'd love to earn more money if only they could keep their hands clicking. Very nice incentive scale for those who do. Good medical. Rest of benefit package slim, made up for by good earnings IMO.

Platform getting genuinely good now and continually improving; the old slowness people complains about seems to be gone.

Lots of ESL but simply not a problem for pros once familiar with dictators. Assigned accounts so you can get fast. Need more than one as they can empty out during those hours when a lot of people want to work.

Genuinely nice company to work for. Excellent support in a variety of areas. Very helpful education programs and groups to help develop skill levels, both medical knowledge and production. Study groups and monetary assistance getting certification, and more.

BTW, if you sign on, you now get to be called a Medical Content Specialist. Not sure what that means yet, but I'm newly impressed with myself anyway.

Bottom line: Good place for good workers.
Read here Wedmedx was hiring new grads. What are they paying?
would love to know.
I'm with you on the Wedmedx time clock. Not sure it would work out for me...too many distruptions
my day to clock in and clock out for every little thing. Thanks..
Does anyone know if Wedmedx insurance covers bariatric surgery? nm
Any Wedmedx'ers out there. How anyone made decent money with them and how is their platform?
Thinking of applying but would like the skinny on if you can make any money with them.
Which to choose???

It appears I may be looking for a transcription job in the near future.  I'm just looking for someplace to call home.  I have multiple years acute care hospital experience, the last 5 years being done here at home.  I come here to find help and after reading through the first couple of pages, I feel like I might as well make a list of all companies across the US, put them in a hat and draw one!!

*I* think my requirements are pretty simple:  Nice, reliable company that treats me with the same respect that I show them, 11 cpl, and plenty of work.

Anyone know of companies that fit that description?  Of course, I prefer a small company over large but have done both and been happy in both situations.  Surely there is a company out there that would be a good fit??

Which to choose??
Sorry, 11 cpl is what I have been paid at the last two employers I've had....as an IC. Guess I could settle for 10 cpl:)
Who to choose?
Have offers for Cymed, TRS, Transolutions, and Silent Type.  They all seem to have pros and cons.  I want to be happy at my job.  Any suggestions out there??? 
You cannot pick and choose
I don't know how you think you can pick and choose. You get the jobs assigned to you by the queue managers. You cannot even see what jobs are available.

SS has been a terrific company for me. I too stick to schedule but at times have to flex because of kids, etc. and they do not have a problem with that from time to time.

Which offer should I choose?

Hi all...I currently have two job offers that I'm trying to decide between.  I was wondering if any of you could give me some ideas, suggestions, input, opinions, whatever...

I was offered clinic work with Axolotl and also offered acute care with WEBMEDX.  They are both full time employee positions, but Axolotl offers 1 cent more per line, which possibly will go up to 1.5 cents more per line after 30 days.

I've read a few posts on here about WEBMEDX and it seems mostly good things are said about them.  I haven't read much on Axolotl at all, so I'm not really sure what decision to make.  Any advice is welcomed and very much appreciated.

Thank you in advance. 

Are you going to choose to keep the computer?
I know they said that they would uninstall everything on the computer if we wanted to keep it, I just have a funny feeling about that, I don't trust them!!

If we don't want it, do we have to pay to ship it back? Is anyone going to purchase it for 260?
They do need people to choose a
schedule and stick to it, I believe. There is plenty of OT available right now, while they are still hiring. I have no idea how much flexibility your life requires, of course. I try to stick to my schedule, but when an emergency has come up, they have been very nice.

In my opinion, and trying to consider it from a business standpoint, their aim will probably be to cover the account with enough people so they don't need much OT in the future. But how it works out will just depend on the skill and production levels and dependability of the people they hire, I suspect. That makes it hard to predict future OT needs.

Good luck in your decision. I'm happy with them, but I don't have kids or another job or other a complications to work around.
You actually choose which plan you want to go with. sm
They offer many different plans at different rates. You choose the coverage you want and that is the plan you go with.
Have to choose IC over Employee?? ....sm
Hi!  Well, after all the testing, thinking, interviewing, etc., I find myself really torn apart.  I have wonderful job offers with fine companies, but the problem is that, at this time, I have too much family obligations to truly commit to employee status....my dad just passed away two months ago, and I am having to care PT for my 89-year-old mom, along with my 3 kids, and with all this going on, I can commit to working long-term and PT hours all through the week, some weekends, but really need FLEXIBILITY, and cannot sacrifice family time for $$$.  I have been doing this for 16+ years, but with my father's long, drawn-out death, I find I have to, in all conscience, spend as much time with my family (what really matters), but help out my husband with finances steadily.....do any of you ladies have suggestions for good IC companies where I can work hard, have experience in EVERY field, and still be able to BE THERE for my poor mom and family?  Thanks everyone so much in advance!!  
I would choose Transform
I have worked for both, if you are talking about Accustat in Wisconsin, and I currently work for Transform and they are awesome and very very flexible with hours, etc. The system is really easy to use and make great money on. I have no complaints about Transform at all. Good luck.
You choose to work
12-hr days and weekends, but that doesn't mean it's the norm. I work M-F, no weekends, 1st shift. Not all accounts are hospitals either. Some people choose to work nights/weekends because of the differential or preference, but just because we got into this profession doesn't mean we HAVE to work that shift as there are all days and shifts available. I think the newer MTs and part-timers generally get stuck with those awful shifts anyway.
I'm not knocking you if that's what you CHOOSE
to do, and you shouldn't knock those of us who CHOOSE not to work those crap shifts. Free will, baby. I have experience and am good at my job, so don't worry about me... LOL
Yes they can do require that. You can choose to go or
not as an IC but you also should be prepared to be without that job if you choose to stay home.
Or you could choose to look for a different profession, sm
where you are not so demoralized that you feel (jokingly or not) that you are a victim.
LOL. No. I had to choose my own beneficiary. Are there companies sm
that do that?
If you could pick between OSi and TransTech, which would you choose? nm
They are not well thought of. I would choose Andrewsw or M-TEC. nm
It can if we choose to MAKE it happen. -nm

Webmedx - you can choose between 2 plans - sm
500 vs 1000 deductible.
If one of mine forced me to choose between the two,
I pick and choose what I take from this board

I first started coming here about 6 years ago when I started going to school for MT.  The posts almost made me give up before I had even finished.  I was sure I would never find a job and that I made a horrid mistake, but because I had already paid for the classes I decided to continue, and found a job 2 months before I ever graduated.  I have been working for 5 years now, and have never been without job, and I make a very good line rate with an awesome company.  I like coming to this board and looking around since I don't really have a relationship with co-workers in this business, it is nice to see what others are thinking, but for the most part I take everything with a grain of salt. 


But what happened to you about the recruiter is pretty horrid.  I can't believe somebody would do such a hateful thing, but in the end they may have done you a favor, I don't think I would have wanted to work for a company that was so rude and unprofessional. 

choose being the operative word
That is what I said. You do have the right to choose the shift and pay you want. All i said was if you don't have what you want, then get out and find something that does give you what you want instead of all the ragging on about how miserable everyone is. I don't care when anyone works. I just get tired of all the people who complain but do nothing to help themselves.
Would you choose $15 with no incentives over straight production??
I have an offer to go shift lead at $15 an hour or another company is offering me 0.9 a line with production incentives on a fairly easy clinical specialty account with what looks like a lot of normals.  Would most of you go for the certain money or take the production in hopes that you can work up speed and eventually make more?  Not sure what to do here.  Thanks
I agree public should know. I think drs. know but choose to ignore.
I believe they have several to choose from - affordable and decent coverage, IMO
Really? Could have sworn people choose when to get sick.
