24-hour turnaround
I'm new to transcription. I currently work (at home) for a local hospital. Are there any companies that you can work for as an employee with a 24 hour turn around or something similar rather than a scheduled shift? I need employee status so I can have benefits. Thanks in advance for any replies.
Well as had been mentioned before MQ NE is looking for a 1 hour turnaround time so there is no way
any accounts will have work for the MTs and that is what they want to do. I think MQ is losing so many accounts they are trying to do these things to get more accounts plus I am sure cutting into the pay of MTs with their new pay plan when it comes out. With 1 hour turnaround time how can anyone get high production for any kind of incentive pay plan. No way in my book. You would be in a zillion accounts. Well, with MQ reputation and good MTs quitting, I hope this plan works for them.
Looking for IC with 24-hour turnaround and good accounts....
Any recommendations? 
Companies with 24-hour turnaround time

I know it has been has been posted here before, but I can't seem to find it. Is there a list of companies that have a 24-hour turnaround time for getting work back?

Also, a list of companies that use ExText or train on speech recognition? Thanks.

I love MDI-MD, and you have a 24-hour turnaround time to get your work done. sm

I'm not sure if they have clinic work, though, but they might. 

Good luck in your search! 

Yeah, it seemed strange to me so I didn't do it. Also, they had a 24-hour turnaround time for the
test, not unheard of but seemed strange nonetheless.  No free work from me today.
internal medicine
Experience is not much of an issue these days. Most companies require the basic 4, H&P, discharge, OPs, Consults even if you do get some office work in between and they want experience with AAMT book of style and/or CMT status.
Internal Medicine job
I completely agree.  I, too, asked about ESL, if she is with a company, etc., but still no response.  Oh well, will wait and see what happens. 
Internal Medicine work
Are there any MTSO companies hiring IC for internal medicine??

Try Transcend which has a current posting on the Job Seekers Board.

Internal Medicine Transcription - Pam Shields
Did anyone apply for this job?  I saw it posted yesterday, applied, immediately got a response from this person giving the pay, how the work is posted, when the work is posted and due back and was told that if I was interested that she would send me some sample files to try.  I emailed her back saying that I was definitely interested and to send the sample files but there has been no response since.  I was just curious if anyone else had applied and had received the sample files.  I imagine that she has been bombarded by resumes and it is just taking a bit of time to get back in touch .... I hope. 
"twisting The Knob" - if each of us told just 1 person in medicine about how this is done

We don't have to bad mouth.

We don't have to lie.

Just educate 1 institution - each of us - tell a clinic, tell a doctor group, tell a hospital.  Tell them about how the billing has the capability of being manipulated underhandedly.  We already know we feel like we are typing in quicksand.  How can I be only typing the same number of lines that I did 20 years ago and yet now I have word expanders, computers, dictionaries that "ride" and drug books that "ride" and I don't have to lean over the look up drugs or words - and here I am making the same line count.  It doesn't make any sense.  "Twisting The Knob."  That makes sense.

  Educate, that's how we will bring back our jobs to a reputable place.

RE: "twisting The Knob" - if each of us told just 1 person in medicine about how this is done
As you describe in your post, I would venture to say, you are in a very small minority. Otherwise, why would there be any need for documentation in a medical record?
How different are internal medicine notes from family practice? nm
I function without a lot of sleep
I try to get up at about 4 a.m., work until 7 when my daughter gets up, start working again at 8 a.m. until she comes home at 3. I guess I do work evenings sometimes, but my desk is right by the kitchen so I'm up and down a lot then. Sometimes I stay up until 11 or so to work after she goes to bed. I do sometimes feel like I'm always working, but I ran up some credit card bills a few years ago and promised to bring in a certain amount of money to help pay down that debt, and now I'm living up to my part of the bargain. Again, though, I do work a lot and sometimes feel like I'm missing out on life, but don't a lot of us feel that way?
How they sleep at night
They sleep just like the guys over at MQ sleep. More and more this business is getting down and dirty. I feel for you all.
How they sleep at night
MQ and Heartland are both scum, cut from the same greedy cloth.
How can they sleep at night?
They can sleep at night because
they have no conscience. Look at how many people were done in by MQ. Do you think the MQ pooh-bahs care? Nah, they're too busy on their yachts. I hope they one day join Mr. Madoff where they belong.
You may sleep well at night
thinking all is well because you have provided for your family. Yes, you have provided them with food and the basica, maybe, but what about selling out in order to do so? What you are really doing is subscribing to a very dangerous philosophy called THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS. Many tragedies of a global nature have been brought about by just this kind of thinking. Study history.
make that, I would not lose any sleep over this co.
How do these people sleep at night....
I wonder how these people can sleep at night
knowing what effect their actions have on their employees. But then again, 16 million dollars will buy a lot of sleeping pills.....
Turnaround Transcription-sm
Anyone working for them? I would like to know if it is difficult to get a decent line count with their system? And how difficult the ESLs are? What type of ESLs? Good people to work for? As in, do they let you work and don't bug you with faxes and memos? Thanks.
turnaround time
PeopleSupport gives you 24-hour
medgarde turnaround - I am
confused about turnaround time because I am reading up to 5 pm due 8 am.  What does that mean?  I will be getting work in up til 5 pm so at 5 pm if I am still getting work in I have to have that back at 8 the next day?  At 3 pm no later I am done for the day so please explain.  Thanks
Why The Complete Turnaround... NOW
?? at this point in time? The problem is, begging for work like this is humiliating. You have work today, how about tomorrow? Will they open the flood gates again?
If you never take a break, work 24 hours with no sleep and ....
no potty breaks, and work seven days a week, 365 days a year, then yes, you can make that kind of money.. Who are they fooling..That is cruel to lead people to believe they could this working a standard shift, 8 hours, and 40 hours a week.  I wish. I made $40,000 last year and I had NO life. All I did was work.. Not worth it..
I try to be correct at all times, but I certainly am not going to lose any sleep sm
over errors I make on a message board, nor will I ever be so petty as to attack someone as this other person has done.  If your little snipe made you feel better, then I'm so happy I could be of service to you.  I try to treat people as I would like to be treated.  I know there are times I have posted something and then saw it and thought OMG .. can't believe I messed that up like that or something, but I have been fortunate enough to have the barracudas leave me alone.  I stand by my original post.  This is not the forum to police each other.  I have over 99% average on my QA scores at work, so I do not worry too much about whether I measure up to the standards of someone here who apparently has nothing else to do except pick others apart for no reason.  However, I have been in the work force long enough to realize that there are some people out there who can only feel good about themselves when they are trying to make someone else feel bad.
And I sleep well at night, knowing I have provided
Anyone work or know anything about TurnAround Transcription in CA? sm

The pay is gross line; however, a line is 72 characters.  Not sure if this is a good deal - I don't think so, but would like your input. 

I am used to a gross line no longer than 65 characters.

They use MedRite - how is that platform?

That is Turnaround Time Transcription - sorry! nm
Turnaround Time Transcription? sm
Does anyone have any information about this company?  TIA
Maybe the time difference and turnaround?
they use escription and have 3 hr turnaround OUCH
sounds really tight to me
I'm taking the same chance. I think I'll sleep better at night. nm
Turnaround Time Transcription, Inc., any info???
I understand. It is a shame isnt it. I hope they sleep well at night.
I have no real headaches. Sometimes they want a faster turnaround time...
or they want things a certain way, but no biggie..I'd be willing to deal with that for up to 5 cpl than what MTSOs want to pay.
it's called meeting turnaround time, as a team. NM
think, people! If she does 250 lines/hour, same docs daily, will make $15/hour
I doubt she's having fitful sleep. Money makes a soft mattress.
She sold us out for the mighty dollar.

This did not happen in a day; I bet she knew for months, way before she wrote that email a few weeks ago.
100,000/year - no way. I charge $35/hour and work 10 hour days - sm

what's not to believe - I said that I charge $35/hour and work 10 hour days AND DO NOT MAKE - sm

try READING the post.
$35/hour x five 10-hour days = $1,750 gross/week.
$20 an hour is not even average for radiology. You should not make less than $25-30 per hour. sm
I work for Keystrokes and have for 3 years. I average 25 reports an hour, which is $31.25 an hour. I have 401, health insurance, direct deposit, life insurance. My lead tells me I'm wonderful when I talk to her, but I do not need a daily pat on the back.

I also have a good friend who works for them on a clinic. She only makes 0.08 per line but does 300 lines an hour, which is $24 an hour, again higher than your $20.

I don't think we're selling ourselves short. There are companies out there that are good to work for, 6 or 8 of them that I know of personally. Don't settle for $20 an hour.
Well if I could do 500 lines per hour, I would be making 35.00 an hour. sm
nothing to sneeze at. More than fair for having a 2-year degree. Come on people, we are all acting like we expect 6-digit incomes! Whatev!
If that's $9.50 an hour, that would be just under 6.5 cpl at 150 lines an hour. nm
Are there any QAs out there that are getting paid by the hour at 15+/hour? If so, where are you and
how are the work conditions/requirements/benefits,etc?
For example, I count every hour on the hour with my job
and while I was posting here and also checking email in between I averaged $22 an hour for 2 hours, not bad for someone who is a) slow or b) does not have a lot of time in transcription work; therefore making me a prime candidate for VR.
