Precyse offshores, pay is based on numerous
things - years of experience, shift, CMT, etc. Pay is average.
I don't know anything about the other company.
OSI offshores - sm
That's old news, they have been doing it for a while. They got caught at it over a year ago, but no telling how long they were doing it before the news leaked accidentally. They then had to own up to it on the OSi homepage for employees.
No one really knows who offshores
Why do you think there was a post stating that management knew weeks before this DRC take-over and conference call? It could be in the works no matter company you work for as far as I'm concerned. As far as saying I won't work for a company that offshores, well that to me, is like saying I am giving up on my profession. The ones that won't work for offshoring companies are giving them the satisfaction of the take-over and offshoring. In other words, you are prejudiced, against anyone transcribing other than a born in America MT. Has it ever occurred to anyone on here that there may be American transcriptionists who are originally from India or China? Come on this is 2007. Get with the times! Do you only buy American made products? Bet not. Okay, I feel better now.
All Type...definitely, definitely
I don't know if TRS currently offshores, but they
have been training women in the Trinidad and Tobago (I think) for several years. If there were a need for transcribed MR a US company would not need to train them, and why train them if they aren't going to have any work. Get the picture.
to India. They joined up with Healthscribe a few years back and are using the Healthscribe office in India for transcription. I know for a fact that they are about to lose a major major account in California because they did not inform the hospital that they were offshoring the work and crap hit the fan!
when a company offshores - sm
they tend to send most of the work offshore because the company makes more money for their pockets. They use the American side just for the minimum amount of work necessary for the client and also to "offset" the client figuring out a lot of times that it is being offshored. Diskriter does this also. they will use both American and Indian and charge the client the same rate and hope that the client doesn't catch on.
...but tries to keep it quiet and asks the American MTs to do the Indian's editing...
OSI offshores. Someone that posts
here often (can't remember name) works for DR and she says the pay is low, but the platform is easy and she can make her lines very easily. If your friend was constantly running out of work, etc. that would be enough for me to stay away.
CyMed offshores, pay so-so, don't know about other.
You get the leftovers. Between Thanksgiving and New years, the server was done daily, frequently several times a day. ..Their sweet little *team leaders* don't spend well at the gas station or the grocery store.
Good luck with this company. Their work is NOT consistent, there was no incentive pay worth mentioning, and they really don't care about quality - just get those lines out.
Turned them down.
Yes, Transcend offshores a lot
Someone had the article and posted it here a few months ago.
Sorry to say your information is incorrect. As a matter of fact, there is a hospital that will be completely offshored by the middle of July. I had been working on it for over a year before getting this news last month.
Spheris offshores too nm
Worked for him for 3+ years. He does offshore. Be careful about linecount, espcilally spaces. My linecount was off and when I called his hand on it it, he hand-counted it and it was off. He owed be $1759
Any company that offshores, lies about it like they did and then
gets caught is an unethical company. I don't care if they pay better, no ESL, etc. If you want to work for a company like that more power to you. My ethics won't let me work for a company like that.
Will never work for a company who offshores
And I bet I won't have to eat my words.
Medware definitely offshores, so does Focus
In fact, Focus Infomatics is OWNED by an Indian company.
I have worked for them both. Be Ware.
Just found out my company offshores,
Cymed offshores and pay isn't very good.
I have 20 years' experience and was offered 8 cpl/ 8.5 cpl over 18,000 lines, which is my average line count.
Spheris offshores some accounts
OSI also has this account & definitely offshores it to India
Cymed offshores work and their pay isn't great.
I have 20 years' experience, can do the most difficult of ESL and they offered me 8 cpl and if I did 20,000 lines then 8.5 cpl.
Many posts in archives about TRS and how difficult it is to get lines and their formula takes a rocket scientist to figure out. They are also looking into offshoring to Trinidad, also supported by Cymed.
Transolutions - lots of negatives in the archives, not sure I have ever seen anything positive.
Don't know about Silent Type, but read the archives.
Every company I've had contact me offshores
and all that is left is the garbage, even had one company let slip that they sent the good stuff to India.
Cymed offshores, pay is average, vacation/PTO
kicks in in 3 or 6 months (can't remember now, but the recruiter made a big deal about it). I was told lots of opportunities for bonuses - of course you have to work more hours to get it - not worth it to me. I don't remember about platform, because I was done with them as soon as the answer to my do you offshore question was yes.
Don't work for a service who offshores. Let them find someone else
I used to work for a company that offshores -doesn't mean I do now (sm)
Do I sense some some sour grapes here?
Cymed offshores. I have 20 years' experience and
they offered me 8 cpl, 8.5 cpl if I did over 18,000 lines a pay period.
Opti Script offshores some of their accounts
SPI heavily offshores to India and Phillipines.
Superior offshores, Pro doesn't have a good
reputation. I can't see anything good coming out of it.
keep in mind SPHERIS OFFSHORES - THEY ARE PART OF HEALTHSCRIBE
Healthscribe linked up with Spheris and has an office in India. I know this because I worked directly with both companies but not as a transcriptionist. Personally, I think any Transcriptionist would be better off going somewhere else.
Transcend offshores, so I have a pretty good idea...
where the 40-50 reports are disappearing during *your* night (*their* day shift).
DSG supposedly doesn't offshore, so darned if I know why we keep running out of work, though I'm guessing just plain old overhiring; no doubt of displaced MTs from other offshoring companies, so it affects everybody, regardless of whether the MTSO actually offshores or not.
Any service that offshores has US QA people. We're the ones stupid enough to take these jobs
and clean up their mess!
Focus offshores 80% of their work to India. And I heard they are headed
Diskriter offshores in a huge way, which means privacy is compromised and American jobs are lost
Stop the carnage and quit working for these companies! Protect your own interests!
Diskriter off off offshores - and on some hospital accounts - they have not informed the hospital
I work for an all-US company and refuse to work for one that offshores. Best of luck to you. nm
If MDI-FL is owned by Transcend and Transcend admittingly offshores, sm
then doesn't that make MDI a company that offshores? That's like saying that one branch of a company offshores but another does not, so they are excluded from the offshore label. If MDI-FL is part of Transcend and Transcend offshores, that means that they do.
RE: If MDI-FL is owned by Transcend and Transcend admittingly offshores, sm
Your hypothesis is incorrect. MDI is a wholly independent subsidary of Transcend, therefore, they were not a part of the experiment to offshore to evaluate cost/benefit ratio that Transcend only tried for 90 days (I believe the evaluation process is not still ongoing).
Am considering Precyse and would appreciate any feedback from gals/guys who currently work for this company. The good, the bad, and anything in between. Thanks.
GO for it! I've owned my own company and worked for others. This is the classiest, best run, best paid, best benefits place I've ever found.
Is achieving a decent line count at Precyse easy to do?
I have tested with them twice, they were slow responding. Usually when I test I get an immediate response and job offer, they are a little slow in getting back. Would like to hear from Precyse MTs - line counts reasonably achievable?
Been with Precyse 3+ years. Their recruiting needs some big time attention. They are rather selective about who they hire and quality is an issue. In my experience, I have had no problem achieving my lines, including the bonus every pay period for lines over 12,000. Of course I have been doing this for over 20 years!
I am not a newbie either. I am switching companies trying to find a fit. Precyse cheats people with 20 years or plus experience on line counts. You are told, you will get feedback from every report, Not so, if you are very capable. I have done a lot, a lot of lines. Worked all day the day before I quit with all my macros, stayed focused and had 600 lines. That has never happened to me before, even with learning curve. I do 12-500 a day, until I met them. I finally figured out, they don't pay for headers, so why should I do them? I don't think they pay for footers either. I am running back to my old job as soon as I can, at least they don't steel lines.
I've worked for both these companies. The platform is Webcorrect (DocQScribe). I happen to love that platform and I managed 1200 to 1400 lines in 6-7 hours - yes, relatively easy to get. I did all consultations and ERs (didn't like being stuck in these work types and ended up, after about 4 months, not getting any ERs). If you didn't like the old Edix management, you probably won't like Precyse. For the most part, though, other than a couple of snippy QA and supervisors, they're not bad.
As far as MDI goes, I did voice recognition for them for a few weeks. The platform I worked on was Escription - easy. The problem is, VR doesn't pay well (about half) and it is very possible to spend lots of time on these reports. Spent about 70% of the time on VR and the rest typing. These folks seemed unorganized and no one was available. If you're a self-starter, you'll do fine.
In my opinion, Precyse is the better, more structured company with much better benefits. The pay is always on time, every other week. If you don't like DocQScribe (Webcorrect), though, don't go there.
Good luck to you. Wish you the best.
Hope this helps. Email me for any further questions about where I work now.
And I think Precyse too?
