The "NEW" IC status!

Why is it now that most companies want to hire IC rather than employee, BUT they also want to dictate your every move?  They want their cake and want to eat it too and it's very irritating!  I started working at home because I wanted the FREEDOM of working at home and that is why I have always given up benefits to enjoy IC status.  Now though, it seems that every IC job CLAIMS they are hiring only IC, but tell you that you must work Sunday through Thursday 11-7 or whatever and you MUST work your shift.

I REALIZE they need a general idea of when they will have coverage, but if I am IC, then I should tell THEM when I can cover.  Is this even legal?

I know that, we were discussing the "new" platform.
"new name" is never a good sign -nm



They said, "NEW beginning" which means they are starting over. (sm)
Who knows how different they will be from what they were before? Sorry, I don't want to be the one to find out.
"New acct on horizon" is same as check is in the
They have been dangling "new insurance" carrot
Waiting for "new pay plan" to come out to see if I need to jump ship (sm)

I am VERY disappointed with the Docuscribe program.  Making about 75-100 lines less per hour than I did before (on the same account).  From what everyone else is posting, it doesn't get much better.  They should easily be able to pay their legal fees for the lawsuits out of what they are saving on our wages. 


Have been checking into other options, but am hoping this new pay plan and more practice with this program might make me want to stay.  Been there so many years now I hate to change, but money is money. 

The Transcription Center
Has anyone worked for this co. in Texas that could comment? 
Try Kimball Medical Center

I'd still contact the solution center
I got the email from my STM this week as well (bet we have the same one!), but I have not been experiencing any problems. It is still very possible that the reason you are having so many difficulties is something to do with your router (if you have one) or ISP. I know how frustrating it is when the platform keeps freezing up on you. I was having so much trouble until I changed the settings on my router and now it is smooth sailing. Definitely contact the Solution Center and see what they can do to help you. There's no reason to suffer through it if there is a fix out there.
Doctor's Medical Center
I searched this board and couldn't find any specific info on this company.  Does anyone work for them?  Know anything positive or negative about them?  Know about their pay scale?
A local surgery center
I was referred to them through someone else. They have had trouble keeping a transcriptionist. Now I know why.
CMC (Carolinas Medical Center)
is located in Charlotte, NC. I know, because I used to work there. They have bought A LOT of the hospitals in North Carolina. It is a VERY large corporation. Good company to work for.
Anybody work on the outpatient surgery center at e-MTS?

Interested in knowing what the account's like, i.e. platform, dictators, productivity, et cet.  Tx.

Cheyenne Regional Medical Center

Does anyone know anything about what it is like to work for Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.  Can you work remote?  How is the pay?

Sonora Regional Medical Center
This seems to be the name of the hospital Janis Reed advised.  She says the ad said weekend only.  Rather snappy reply from her via email.
8 center per gross line...as good as 9/65 cpl?
Anyone here for for University of Kansas Medical Center? Please let me know. Thanks.
I work at home for a national now and I'm wondering if KU outsources or does in-house and about their benefits. Not a newbie, have 11 years experience in acute care. Rock chalk!
I just read on their website under Employment Center (sm)
that they are hiring.  I know they had a job listing posted on here a week or so ago for experienced Docuscribe MT's.  I work on Meditech there but would kill to get back on Docuscribe again!  I loved it...
Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia is hiring - nm
I see that Cheyenne Regional Medical Center is hiring.
"Training" is on location but after training, there will be multiple excuses as to why you can't go home to work. Supervisor is NEVER there. Pay is not TOO bad, but working in-house is horrible. Just thought I would throw my opinion in and try to save the next poor soul who falls for their "promises".
Another example of the "bizarreness" is when I worked for our regional medical center
Nicholas who was clearly of Indian descent kept faxing and calling the transcription department of our hospital wanted to submit a bid to do our transcription. The manager politely declined but he continued to call EVERY day..I guess to see if she'd wear down. She then faxed them an official stop contacting us letter but it continued. Finally, she had the hospital's attorney send them a final notice in regards to legal action and they called after that. Honestly, at that point, I came home so I dont what ever become of it. I know it blew our minds. It must be a cultural thing.
The solution center's memo of an upgrade to the system SM
in the next couple of weeks (not on company computer right now so don't remember exact date) includes release notes that says the issue of the platform freezing will be corrected. I hope this fixes some of my own problems.
Solutions Center told me problems wouldn't
be fixed any time soon because it was going to cost a lot of money to do it.  I had the worst boss ever and I'm so glad to be free of that place. 
I have no info, but the energy center is named after my grandfather nm
Frank R. Applegate Energy Center
anyone see the post on job board for regional medical center, 13 cents??
Nope, just tired of the whining; feels like a daycare center
Seems to me all the time and energy put into this board whining over something that cannot be changed would be more wisely used either (a) learning VR or (b) putting out one's resume.
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.
Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Center City Phila uses Diskriter
What I read was that they opened a center in India BUT were adding work for them and keeping their
domestic work force as well.
