I've been with them a few weeks now and it looks like I've found a new home. Hoping to meet some other MTs working there....if you're with UST and so inclined, drop me an e-mail and say hello.

Any information on US Transcription out of Iowa?....sm
I have looked on several boards and just cannot find out any information on them.  Anyone currently work for them or have in the past?  I just want to know any pros or cons.  They seem very nice, just would like to know any current opinions on them.  Thanks. 
Forgot - U.S. Transcription in Iowa
Iowa City, Iowa PJs
To be fair to any company in Iowa, the PJs Transcription I am referring to is out of Iowa City, Iowa.  Just thought I'd clear that up, in case there are 2 in Iowa with the same name.
UST in Iowa
Anyone know anything about U.S. Transcription out of Iowa? 
Thank you:) Would that be out of Iowa?
I googled and got one in Iowa and another.
Company in Iowa - sm

Since the State Board for Iowa hasn't been used since 2006 I am posting this message here.

I took a job with a company in Iowa earlier this year.  I have 2 children and have to meet her courier every morning to pick up my work which is on tapes.  I also had to buy extra insurance because according to her this is mandatory HIPPA regulation.  Then I find out that she leaves tapes in another MT's mailbox AND sends the cassette files (digitally somehow) to MTs that live 20+ miles away.  I'm only making a little over .06/line and getting my children ready every morning can be a chore.  Meanwhile, this woman takes more vacations and has diamonds on all fingers.  Today will be my last day.  She should be ashamed of herself for treating her MT's like that.  We are the ones that pay for her vacations and diamonds.  Can anyone say Greeeeeeeeeeeeed?

Companies in Iowa
There is also a company in Dubuque, named US Transcription, that hire at-home transcriptionists. Good luck to you.
Work in Iowa
Hi Lydia, transcription jobs are kind of hard to find to do at home but there is a company in Ankeny that will let you transcribe from home.  I worked for a national and there are many nationals that will hire you to work from home.  There are a lot of offices and medical facilities that will hire transcriptionists to work on site.  Good luck!  :) 
If you are in Iowa City
I highly recommend The University.  Further information available upon request.
I thought they just had corn in Iowa
Any advice for a newbie in Iowa?
Just moved to Iowa and having a hard time finding employment outside of my home.  I've done transcription for 15+ years and recently moved to Iowa.  I'm thinking about applying to some jobs here but have never worked from home.  Any advice?  Lydia
I work for a small company in Iowa

The woman that owns the company is crazy.  She treats physical therapy like it's acute care.  They are office visit notes and she acts like they are Op notes and the doctor is breathing down her back waiting for them to be typed.  The physical therapist could care less ------- it's an exercise class lady - get over it.  At 6 cpl she wants a miracle. 

from my hometown DeWitt, Iowa, weird!
Add Mndscriberz out of Iowa to the list of nonpayers too. nm
Can anyone provide info on Trans Tech Iowa?
University of Iowa Med Center announced layoffs yesterday
I think the news report said they were getting rid of 130 people now, a total of 200 this year. Fortunately (their word, not mine), they're not going to have to make any cuts in people who have patient contact but in administrative areas (that'd be us). Truthfully, I'm not sure if they even still have in-house transcriptionists, but you know that if they do, they'll be the first to get their marching papers.
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.

Thanks in adance for your help/support. 

Do you mean TMT Transcription or Tidewater Medical Transcription sm
known as TMT. Their tactics are to look for you so it sounds like them.
TRS Transcription (Transcription Relief Services)

Please let me know if you work for this company and what you think of them. I am testing right now and hope they are a good company! :)

Thanks :)

Chase transcription/USA transcription

Does anyone work as an indepedent contractor for either of these companies?  If so, could you tell me a little bit about them.

Thank you

Don't confuse CC Transcription with C&C Transcription
Please don't confuse CC Transcription with C&C Transcription, they are two totally separate companies. Also C&C Transcription does NOT offer direct deposit.

D&L Transcription
Can anyone tell me anything about D&L Transcription??  Just wondering and curious.... THANKS!
TM Transcription - sm
Anyone ever work for TM Transcription?  I think it is Transcription Mommies which is kind of scary but I'm looking for a smaller co.
T-C Transcription
I started last week working for them.  I was promised my main account would be radiology.  Of course, lied to again.  They have ME on five accounts.  I have only done VA.  The instructions for the account are absolutely ridiculous.  Who has time to review 18 pages of dialogue for an account???  Then some have templates, and VA  you have to fill in headers and footers, and use periods in MD and other stupid stuff.  Then you have to do a monthly schedule, and I have had nothing but trouble with that.  I sent it as an attachment, as required, but it is not the "right" format.  I am supposed to have tech support fix my email, and the account manager is snooty as heck.  I am literally shaking I am so frustrated and angry with this place.  I took a chance and re-contacted my job I just resigned from, and I got my job back.  eTransPlus is a great place.  I highly recommend applying there.
QA vs. transcription
I have done QA for about 4 years and left the company, and I would like to do transcription, but I only type about 55-60 words a minute. Should I try different companies to see if they will hire me. And will speed come?  I have enough medical terminology, but it's the speed I'm concerned about.
QA vs. transcription
As you probably already know, quality is much more important than speed in transcription. Just keep plugging away with quality as your #1 goal, and the speed will come with practice. Also, I suggest trying one of those typing test websites to work on your speed. Good luck!
Transcription help

Is there anybody out there that would be willing to mentor an MT.  I try to find MT friends but have no luck, as nobody wants to give me their name.  I like these boards but sometimes I need longer explanations about things.  I was just wondering if there was a group or something or individuals who do that.

Transcription at Its Best
... does anybody have any info on this company. I work for a psychiatric hospital and am considering working at home. I saw their ad in MT jobs but can't find anything in archives. Please help. Thanks.
Pj transcription
I did work for PJ for months and you might as well go back to school, cause at least then you dont expect pay, with PJ you wont get paid either. I did give notice and never recieved anything except experience. good luck
Pjs Transcription
All is works for as we speak. Your right, there is no excuse for it, and others will get caught in it too which is a shame to take advantage of new MTs.    
PJs transcription
I have nothing to gain from this posting. This business owner has already stolen over $500 from me and I will have to fight to get it back -- might get ugly. I do not take pleasure in demoralizing anyone. Just don't want it to happen to anyone else -- so here we go....word of mouth. By the way, congratulations on your business ownership -- it's quite an accompliment to run an honest, productive business.
PRN transcription
Does this company have radiology and urology? If this is the one I am thinking of, I was going to start working for them, but then the girl training me admitted that she didn't like certain reports or dictators and would skip them - that was all I needed to hear - of course that is what would be left for me to do - the crap work - and I have done all of that kind of work for most of the past 15 years - and I am tired of it - ESLs, long reports for little pay, etc. If you have the names of someone with the company - I would be happy to confirm if this is one in the same.
