They send our American work to the Philippines,

Philippines you would not be allowed to work.  Americans cannot get jobs in the Philippines because they are saving them all for the Filipinos - don't know if we'd want them anyway but that is beside the point.  Doesn't seem fair, does it, that they can take our work away from us and we get nothing in return.

This is all part of the cost-saving plan..first, send your American MTs work to India so we sit here
with nothing and then manipulate the way the lines are counted. Sounds like cost cutting at our expense to me. 
All the good work goes to the Philippines.
The American MTs get the left overs. Check their web site.
Still American MTs doing the work
why shouldn't people from India not be allowed to have a part in it? Don't they deserve to make a living too?
Yes they do send work overseas and do not hide this fact. There is plenty of work and they do pay
well. Overall, I like having work as I have been at places where you had to fight to keep busy so this works for me.
There is NO work at Transtech. Maybe they just choose special people to send work to
Work Ethic and the American MT
I just had to say something about the disparaging remarks made against the American MT.  I think they are the gold standard of the industry.  I have seen the work sent from Third World MTs.  Full read QA often translates to 95% rewrite.  I feel even stronger about owners of companies using the Third World MTs.  Many of the offices warehouse hundreds of sweatshop transcriptionists who cannot leave until they reach their quota.  Any woman should be ashamed of exploiting these women and then trying to exploit the American QA by paying them slave wages to bring their work up to a standard that would fool many clients who do not know where their work is being sent.  I applaud any work that mistakenly gets sent to the client before a complete rewrite by an American editor.  The client should see the value their money is getting.  There is nothing more reprehensible than women getting rich by oppressing other women and what the American MTs are being paid should be an embarrassment.  Please do not tell me about your overhead....every person living has expenses - what makes the MTSO's more important?


I am a Canadian MT who will not QA work done in Third World countries.  It is a personal choice.  I will not train them in medical terminology or the English language.  I have too much respect for the hardworking, dedicated women in North American working under the tyranny of companies who monitor their washroom breaks to help the Third World MTSOs make more money off the sweat of their MTs.


Yes, American and Canadian MTs have families and lives that may, at some time, require them to take off the shackles of their headsets.  They are women, mothers, wives first .... not indentured servants to the transcription companies.  Many people died for the freedom to speak and that right also extends to transcriptionists.

Philippines (2 Ps, 1 L)

Let me sum it up for you, 80% of work is done in India, they just laid off a bunch of American

QA people, some of which were hired only a few months before they were fired, and they just now fired a lot of their upper management.  Something is in the wind at Focus and it smells like crap!  Don't work there.  If you do decide to ignore the warnings, don't believe anything they tell you!  They lie to you right up until they call and fire you.

Between the outsourcing and overhiring, there is absolutely no work for anyone/anything American, pe
Philippines *and* India. nm
sorry...truncated..I meant, he's in the Philippines
The worst offender for Philippines is SPI-BPO. sm
i think they added the BPO to their name so people wouldnt realize it was them, lol.

They have work done in Philippines and in India and the quality of the work just sucks so bad.

Steer clear of them, for sure.

Oh, that is unless you are a liaer and a thief. They like to have employees who screw them. One chick worked (yeah right - i should say BILLED) for 23 hours a day - she made $7000 the first month she was there and those idiots let her.

She is STILL there too. sigh
if they send work to someone who
offshores then quite simply they offshore
I found a lot of replies from Indian and Philippines
it seemed as if her post came FROM the Philippines as it said she was a member on the republic of philippines website.....

I work there, but cannot send an email.
How can I help you
All I know is that they send work overseas. nm
I just called them. They are in NY but send 100% of the work
out of the country. No thank you.
does not send work offshore
MedScript Services in Florida
Does OSI send work offshore?

If so I won't bother.  TIA

Who is LK -- know TT did send some work to another service, but

but please let me know what you are saying because we TT'ers are very interested in what you are saying to us all -- I just know there is something very wrong with my line count.  I have been doing this too long to not know how many lines I can get.  I cannot put my finger on the problem -- I just know it does fall in my lap. 

This is really disturbing to me.

They do not send work to Focus...sm
or get work from Focus. Please get your facts straight before making up stuff on these boards. If you think you can prove otherwise send me your information.
She's right TT does NOT send work offshore.
Never have and never will.  The day they do is the day I quit because I never have worked for a company that offshored and I never will. 
OSI does send offshore work
do they send escription work to
or just beyondtxt work to india? I have been on escription.. my last paycheck is barely 300 bucks (due tomorrow) as there was NEVER any work on the accounts i had
Yes they do send work to India
I know because they told someone I know who is a facility that they would if they wanted their work sent over there.
MDI does NOT send work overseas.
Do they send work offshore?
Just wondering.
even if they send work overseas...
Please help me find a company to work for that has WORK and pays on time. That is all I ask at this point.
Looks American but isnt. All MT work done in India. Hosps in IL dont know. Bound to fall.

You send the work in using their program, yes. I never ran out of work sm

but I was just working part-time, and this was about a year ago, so things could have changed.  Isabelle and everyone seem so caring, it is hard to believe that they would consistently have MTs without work, but that seems to be a curse of the industry lately.

Good luck to you!

I wonder why they don't send a lot or all of their work to India? That's where a lot of work&
Ditto! Also add that they ignore e-mails you send and send endless IMs!
oops - typing police where are you. I meant Philippines
Yes that is the company MQ uses to send work to India.
Batch receive/send work?
Is there any company out there where you can download work in batches and send back transcribed reports in batches?  I can only get dialup and it is too slow to do 1-3 jobs at a time.  30+ years experience, big 4 and Radiology, Medical and Radiation Oncology.  I am currently employed in hospital radiology department but want to go back home.  Hate this winter driving!!!
Which nationals do not send work out of the country?

Which nationals do not send work out of the country? I need to find another job.


Does anybody work for SmartMed/TSI? When do they send out pay checks? TIA. nm
Keystrokes is and will not send work out of the country. sm
The owners feel strongly about that.
Webmedx does NOT send work to India.
They don't send work to anyone. Period. You can take that to the bank.
Transcend most certainly does send work to India.
And they are proud to have these partners
I really wonder how much cheaper it is to send work overseas. When you
think about it, IC here gets about 4 cpl for VR and about 8 or 9 for straight typing.  Overseas they have to go through a middle man or whoever owns the services and you cant tell me they arent getting a decent cut of the cpl and paying 3 cpl or so to their people.  Just my thoughts.  I bet the cost is very close anymore to what we earn.  I see Delta is bringing its reservation call service back here from India because of all the complaints from US customers. I would expect it is the benefits here for employees that causes a problem costwise for MTs.
Does Transtech send work to India? nm
Not hiring because they send most their work to India
Wbx doesn't even send work offshore. nm
Anything Global or International prolly involves India or Philippines. nm
Anyone know anything about Cbay at all in Maryland. Do they only send their work to India.
TransHealth does not send work offshore. Hires only US MTs. nm
None of the ones on the Job Seekers board send work outside the country. They
would not be allowed to advertise if they did.
