Webinar -Evolving Medical Transcription: Technology's impact on traditional transcription process

Hey everyone, check out this link. This is what we are up against. Be sure and note how 3M or whoever is the sponsor of this webinar throws in that dictation and transcription is time-consuming.  Nevermind that EMR and VR take more time and money to be successful and it only takes 38 seconds to dictate a returning patient and 2 minutes to dictate a new patient versus 500 clicks on a point and click EMR or the mess VR makes and having to have an Editor come in and clean up the mess. Propaganda that we should know about.



I have firsthand knowledge of this company as an IC.  Very disorganized.  No account specifics provided for most accounts.  You never know if you are doing something wrong on an account until you actually do it, and then you are told you don't provide good quality work.  They have no MT support, and they use no tools to track how you are doing (audit, etc.).  They do everything willy-nilly with very little preparation and professionalism.  They also are attempting to bring all of their transcription stateside presently (or so they say) rather than have all their reports typed by Indian workers and then edited by United States editors.  They do not use AAMT BOS, and their head QA person is very limited in knowledge regarding same.  The pay is very low.  The audio is excellent, though.  It's some of the best audio I have heard in this industry.  The owner seems nice at first, but he will sell you down the river at any given moment.  The operations manager also seems nice at first but will do the same thing and will say negative things to the owner about the quality of an MTs work with nothing to back it up.  She is more about personalities and who she likes than anything else.  I was fibbed to many times while working with this company.  The owner is not a gentleman.
Smartdoc info.....?????
I can't seem to find anything about this company on the boards. Do they have people that actually work there?

USA Medical Transcription
Anyone know of this company and what they are like?
$60,000.00/Y for medical transcription?!
... so sorry to hear about your dissolutionment about MT pay. If your school told you that you would be making $60,000 a year, that is so deceiving. How long ago were you told this wrong information? It's heartbreaking when I hear so many people tell me their school lures them in on this statement. It actually burns me up. Now, I even hear a school advertising on the WAV FM radio advertising hotel sites where presentations will be given on this lucrative career. The ad says that there is a very great need for medical transcriptionists and you can work at home for hospitals and doctors and make as much as you want. SO DECEIVING. I have a good notion to show up at one of these seminars and stand up in the middle of the talk and tell it like it is!

At one time, YES, you could make $60,000.00 a year. Since technology and the nationals have taken most big chunky accounts, if you were to make that kind of money, you would need to be chained to the computer. SO SAD. Don't get me wrong, it can be done with a national. Only a very savvy Transcriptionist who has the right conditions i.e., steady account, knows drs well, expanders, works more than 8 hours can do it but it is getting increasingly difficult to attain that yearly income with pay going down.
Anybody know anything about USA Medical Transcription? Would appreciate anything. nm

USA Medical Transcription

On the Job Seeker's Board it says USA Medical Transcription.  That is all I know about it.  It says they are seeking transcriptionists for VA Hospital work.  Thanks.



USA Medical Transcription
I applied - took a test which was not so difficult. It was a few weeks before they finally got back to me (I subsequently emailed for a reply) saying I'd passed.
The pay schedule is not very friendly and their offer was for 7 cpl with an opportunity, depending on the account to which you're assigned, to go to 8 cpl...


Anyone know anything about this company?  Web site or has anyone worked for them? 

prn medical transcription
Does anybody have any info. on prn medical transcription in Florida? Thank you!  
prn medical transcription
I just know that it is called prn Medical Transcription, Inc., the website is bestprn.com, and it is in Florida.  Thanks! 
USA Medical Transcription, Inc.
I worked for them for about 3 months last fall. I didn't QA, though, just transcription.  I was on a VA Clinic account (lots of ESLs), which was lost, so I found another company. But they had other accounts and offered to give me one of those. They paid on time twice a month.  
IPR Medical Transcription...sm
Has anyone ever worked for or heard anything about this company? I believe they are out of MD. I've searched but can't find anything. I'd like to know about their dictators, whether they pay on time, what they are like to work for, etc. I'd really appreciate any info anyone could provide. Thanks!
OSI Medical Transcription

Thanks for mentioning that.

Good to see those few posts from OVER 2 YEARS AGO!!  Excuse me, but things can and do change. 

At least one person was positive and has a good head on her shoulders.  Her response was excellent about OSI.


TMT Medical Transcription, Ltd

Does anyone have any experience with this company; good, bad or indifferent? I believe they are based in Shreveport, LA, but billing invoices go to Jonesville, TX. I did a search on this site, but nothing comes up for this company. Thanks in advance!

USA Medical Transcription Inc

Any info on this company would be great.  Thanks

Actually, medical transcription
is not done in the offices in Manila and Phillipines.
TMT Medical Transcription in TX
I saw their ad and see they pay by the minute....any information would be great!
USA medical transcription

If it is the company out of SC, I worked there.  It was great until I got sick.  I had to have surgery and the President herself assured me everything was okay and my job was safe.  To make a long story short, I had complications after my surgery and they terminated me.

The supervisor was HORRIBLE to deal with as well.

USA Medical Transcription MTs -- a few ?s

good company?  Any info would be greatly appreciated!  THANKS.
USA Medical Transcription
Does anyone have any information on USA Medical Transcription? They have an ad at the top of the Job Seeker's Board that is always there, and I was wondering if anyone had anything to say about them, good or bad. Do they pay on time? Do they pay for spaces?
RE USA Medical Transcription
I have been working for USA for over a year. It is a great company to work for. They do always pay on time. They do not pay for spaces. I like the flexibility I have on the account I am working for. (acute care)
USA Medical Transcription
I can only tell you what I know about this company and how they used to operate. I worked for this lady for about 2 years when I first started out in the business. Wages were low, hours were long, and she did not pay for spaces. She used to fine us for every little mistake. The only problem was that her opinion of a mistake was different than other references, which would make sense because for every mistake you make, it is saving her money. I would say RUN for your life. If you hit the space bar, you should be paid for it. I stayed there until I had enough experience to get a real job, but I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone if she still operates the same as she did before.
TMT Medical Transcription does

I have worked for them since October 2007. Their website is http://www.tmtmedicaltranscription.com/contactus.html, however, I do not believe the information is current.  ***Edited by Moderator***

Please do not put names and E-mail addresses in your posts.

USA Medical Transcription
Anyone have any experience with this company?  The person doing the hiring sounds rather rude through e-mail and the pay doesn't seem like anything to write home about. 
USA Medical Transcription
I've searched the archives already and couldn't find anything.  Does anyone know anything about this company?  Does anybody know their website because I can't find that either.  I'm completely worthless on holidays!  lol.  Thanks for any info.
Medical Transcription
Does any one know of any other Medical Transcription workathome companies which are good?
CMC Medical Transcription, Inc.

The CMC I know is based in Seattle, a great company to work with!  Most of the transcriptionists who work for CMC are located in the Pacific Northwest, but CMC contracts with transcriptionists located all over the country – from New York to Arizona. Because it has transcriptionists in so many different time zones, CMC is better able to schedule service for clients that need a short turnaround on a 24 hour basis, such as emergency rooms or pathology labs.

CMC has acquired its clients, as well as its contract transcriptionists solely through its reputation for excellent service in the health care industry. Colleen’s goal in starting this company was to establish a business that takes pride in its quality service. CMC realizes that a well-trained and supported Transcriptionist provides a better product than an ill-trained, unappreciated worker. Therefore, CMC strives to provide their transcriptionists with the finest in both technical and emotional support, as well as a good living.

CMC continues to grow and diversify. Its clients consist of primary care clinics, emergency rooms, pathology labs, hospitals, and related health care companies. Most of CMC’s clients are in the Pacific Northwest, but it has recently taken on clients in other parts of the country.  You need a willingness to work, a solid background in MT, your own dedicated computer, and a fax machine.
USA Medical Transcription, Inc?
I checked the forums and didn't see many, if any at all, posts on this company. Anyone work there? What's the pay? What's the account like? Tons of ESLs and bad dictators or are they decent? What are the people like?

I don't mind doing VR work, in fact I love it, but it depends on the pay.
ZNF Medical Transcription
ZNF pays semimonthly after the 15th and last day of the month.  They have direct deposit.  Transcription is done in Microsoft Word within the MT World platform that controls uploading and downloading of files and the delivery of normals, templates, etc.  The scheduling is flexible in the sense that you can work whenever you'd like as long as you meet customer TAT (generally 24 hours).  They do not pool work, so you don't hear a different voice on each job and can build up speed on your doctors.  Their quality expectations are high, and they only hire folks with 10 years of experience at a minimum.  I hope that helps.
ZNF Medical Transcription
No, ZNF has been using the MT World platform since early 2003. Prior to that, they ran a simply DVI system.
USA Medical Transcription
They are paying on a VBC line which results in about a 33% paycut as compared to the same standard line rate. 
USA Medical Transcription
Has anybody applied for USA Medical Transcription lately?  Have you tested fine and answered all questions, and still they don't get back with you as promised?  They said they would get back with me in 1-2 days and it has been 7 days.
USA Medical Transcription

After not getting a reply, I thought I would go to eTransPlus and apply.  I got to the part where you take the test and it said I must have XP or better.  I have Windows 2000. Oh, well.  So I went to MBA Transcription and applied and said to copy and paste my resume into an e-mail. Well, I have been doing that, but it cuts the city and state off my jobs that I have had and makes the whole resume look lousy.   After getting nowhere with all these companies and the only company that REALLY wants me right now is SoftScript (they have called me twice), I decided to talk to Transcription Matchmaker on MT Daily. Soft Script changed my hours just before I hired with them and now I can't type their hours they want. (Got to send your kids to Siberia if you want to get a job as an MT.) So I was supposed to have the phone interview today but did not give interviewer enough advance notice, so now she wants it Tuesday. 

Then I applied to HILS Transcription and got an e-mail back saying Due to the overwhelming response of our job ad, we will not be able to answer individual e-mails.  Excuse me, but I'm not applying for some drawing, like get a free computer.  Then another MT told me today that on MT Daily there were over 1300 resumes and 97 jobs. Oh, this is depressing. And all these ads on this site saying study medical transcription now, be your own boss, earn money at home.

Well, that's my story.
