I hope they had been kind enough to forewarn their employees or at least provide severance pay. Good luck to all their people. Many people hiring hope you all find a good home quickly.

I heard same, which is shame, since they have some good
I have heard good things - sm
I even spoke to the owner on the phone - SUPER nice.  I couldn't take the position right now due to personal reasons but would definitely go with them in the future if need be.  A current employee likes it there that I spoke to.
I heard good things about them, but I have to
I really do not like that Oak site, I have tested through that before and lots of hoops to jump through... I don't know if I have the time to take it, the company would have to be really really worth it for me to take the time to test with that software. Just my 2c.
I have heard only good things about MDI-FL and have talked to the sm
owners myself. They seem to be very nice people who care about their transcriptionists. They are MTs themselves, something that helps in this business.

I know they have grown this past year. They probably found the two or three MTs that move from company to company, always finding fault and always bashing the one they quit or were terminated from. It is just MDI-FL's turn to be bashed. I am sure that most people reading this board take it all with a grain of salt.

If you love the company you work for - stay with them. Obviously you found a great fit. I am fortunate enough to have MTs like love working for us (not saying who I am as I promised my staff I would stay away from here) and fortunate enough to have applicants that don't take the bashing on these boards as gospel.
I've heard good things about both...sm
but which one pays better?  I'm curious to know too as I thought about applying for eMTS.  Let us know.  TIA
I've heard good things about MDI.
Sorry, I'm not part time so that's all I can offer. Felt I should write something as poster below didn't seem to realize this company board is for asking and discussing companies.
Heard good things about Landmark, so went sm
to their website. It states you must work both Saturday and Sunday. I might have read it wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's what it said.

I would love a M-F job and wouldn't mind working one weekend day, but not both.

What kind of changes? I am looking to apply there and have heard good things. I don't want
to go in blind, but all the postings are so vague. Can you give me an example so I can decide for myself?
Do you mean Axolotl? If so, I've heard many good things about them. nm
I have heard good things about New England in the past
don't know if that has changed. I would also throw in a vote for TransTech. After cycling through several other companies, I have finally found a home with Transtech and I am very happy there.
I have heard really bad things from QA about our overflow that goes to Amherst. Not good quality and
clients complaining because the MTs that are getting the work are making mistakes and not reading the client profile. Good way to lose accounts.
I have heard nothing but good things about Webmedx, but no personal experience NM
That's a shame. It sounds like things have really changed. sm

I was there for 5 years and always thought that D really cared about providing enough work for everyone.  Maybe all of the industry changes have caught up there too.  I hope things turn around for you and everyone else.  Although I do not have a family, I am my only source of income, and I know how scary the no-work situation can be.

Good luck!

I've heard only positive things about them. So, I applied, but haven't heard a word. Maybe fl
No. Expect good things, and good things will come
The only things I heard about them
and the test is long and tedious and then you have to work I believe an entire month before your first paycheck. 
Because of all the great things I have heard here - sm
I just finished filling out my paperwork for Futurenet. I have been looking for 3 months, contemplated many offers and turned down many offers. I think this is just what I am looking for.

The autocorrect that you use - is this the feature that is in the word program? I was told that there is a word Expander in their program. Do they mean Autotext? If so, is it easy to use? Thanks!
I heard great things too
which is why I am so hesitant to even consider looking elsewhere. Hope we hear something tomorrow. Feel free to email if you find out anything.
I had heard so many great things about KS too, though

it was mainly only a couple of MTs that posted.  I want to do more than be an MT and I thought KS would be a good company that I could advance with. 

It just did not turn out to be a good experience for me.  They talked a good talk, but they never followed through with the raises or anything else.  I never ever got paid for OT, yet was asked to work extra during my work days and asked to work on my scheduled days off.  I worked because I needed the money, but 8 cpl just wasn't worth it.  I also had a lead that wasn't very good and you might as well have talked to the wall. 

I think there are worse companies out there and if you are coming from MQ they might seem pretty good.  If you go back and reread your post it sounds like it is a no brainer. 

Things are not good there now. Think only hiring for 2nd and 3rd shiifts. Good luck. nmx
I have heard terrible things about SoftScript. I was hired by them, but..
Was really appalled with what they asked. Did you see that disclaimer yet? Veto.
Evidently, we at Webmedx are to believe things are going well. So well, in fact, we will have a special meeting. Ha. Can't wait.

Agree with the above poster that those are never good. Some are distracted by the whole rah-rah atmosphere. But most of us know we are screwed.

I would think Web folks are less srewed than SS, though.
I have no idea...ask MTME. I've heard bad things about MDI-MD and am not interested! n/m
I've heard mixed things about MediTech platform...can anyone weight in on (sm)
its pros and cons? I'm going to be learning it in my new job soon. I couldn't find much in the archives that is very recent. Thanks.
Anyone ever heard of Medical Bazaar?
I don't see anything on them in the archives.  Was just wondering if they are on the up-and-up....
Has anyone ever heard of Verbatim Medical?
I just got the strangest E-mail offering me a job.  It sounds like they are just starting out and looking for MTs to begin in about 2 weeks.  They are out of NYC.  I'm already with a company that promises to start me in 2 weeks on a new account and so far their practices are questionable.  What is up with these companies?  At this rate I can quit a company a week until I find the right match.    
Has anyone heard of this medical trans. company?
Accel Systems Group, Inc.?  How are they?  Any good?
Anyone heard of Medical Records Corp. of MD? sm

They are posting that they are hiring at 10 to 12 cpl, however, wondering what the catch is......are they a school or something???  TIA

Has anyone heard if Scan Medical Services

They made me an offer to work IC for them.


has anyone ever heard of SmartScripts Medical Transcription?

They're based in Virginia.

Comments, good or bad.

I see they are posting for a job.   When looking on google, it looks like they are from outside the U.S.   Anyone ever heard of them?
Has anyone ever heard of AC Medical Records Management out of Oregon? TIA nm

Medical Imaging in Atlanta - Anyone heard of them, work for them?

They are radiology only and looking. Any help/knowledge is appreciated. 

Has anyone heard of or worked for ACES Up Medical Services? nm
Had the same happen here, heard the same thing, good references and good ....sm
job record will get you better $$$ if you are willing to promote yourself, search like crazy, talk to everyone, etc., but I have never been paid a cent more for CMT, what a waste, and all the years I paid my dues to AAMT, what a joke, they did NOTHING to better our field, just took the money for better conventions, as far as I can see.
Has anyone ever heard of the transcription company Medical Dictation out of Florida?
Just curious to see if anyone knew anything about this company.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
Shame, SHAME on you people

for putting the MDI/Transcend people down!!!   When the offshoring, mergers, sales, etc.  knocks on YOUR door, as it surely will in time, will you still be so self-centered?  I am glad the moderator is allowing them time to discuss their plight and I am reading every post and thinking what I can do to help.  I am only one little person but I'm speaking loudly about the MT industry to anyone and everyone who might be able to help.  I spoke this morning with a person who knows an MT who works for one of the local  hospitals that has their MTs working from home.  This person told me they are ultraflexible and the MT she knows takes time off to go for a massage.  I left my number with our mutual friend and asked her to have her call me, I would  like to find out how they have made this work.  Sure sounds like going for a massage beats sitting around waiting for work from some MTSO and imagine the flexibility allowing her to do that!  I also spoke with an MT who has worked for one of the BIG MTSOs for over a dozen years.  She is not willing to trust another MTSO so she went part-time with the BIG one and took a full-time job waitressing where she says she  makes much more money.   She is so far behind she is in fear of having to file for bankruptcy!   Now THAT is pathetic.  If she can't make a living in MT anymore it is doubtful anyone can under the current working conditions.  I know nothing about MDI or Transcend but those aren't the only MTs who are suffering for lack of work and it seems more are in the boat every day. 

Please have patience with these, your brothers and sisters.  You may think this can never happen to you but I assure you it CAN and more than likely WILL sooner or later.

So if you have a question you'd like to ask, fire away,  I'll answer if I know the answer.

Shame, Shame, Spheris

I just noticed on Spheris's new CS platform on one of my backup accounts (one that happens to also be offshored to India), that not only is a patient's SSN available, birth date, but also the home address and personal phone number.  I've never understood why a SSN has always been available, since it is never used to identify a patient, but now all the other personal info is available on this particular account; however, is not available on my primary account (which interestingly is not offshored).  I am absolutely appalled that Spheris has made available all this private information, and none of it is required to identify a patient in order to transcribe a report, as the patient is only identified by name and/or account numbers.  It scares me that a patient's complete identity is available to any disreputable person with access and willing to profit from this info. 

Heard Keystrokes was getting better benefits, medical insurance etc.. Anyone care to elaborate? I
ready for a change.
All good things come to an end.
The gun replaced the bow and arrow. We all know what happened to those feckless fellows who refused to upgrade their hardware.

The automobile replaced the horse and buggy, the farrier and the buggy companies had to specialize or find a new trade.

Technology is a fact of life.

Maybe transcriptionists will be phased out, but life truly does go on, even if you and a few of your friends decide to dig in your heels and refuse to accept it. The awful truth of the matter is that you may eventually be replaced. It's time to think about preparing for the future rather than perseverating on the past.

Nothing but good things to say about them....
I was with them for a  short time.  I saw their add and considered sending my resume.  They are very family oriented and the platform was fantastic.  I love the owner's Dani/Scott.  I can't say anything bad about them...I wish that I was still there but found something more in my field of psyche...
Good things come out of bad....
situations. You had reasons to do what you did, and DH sounds like he was taken by surprise that you did do what you did. It's time to regroup and refocus, and discuss further with DH why what happened ...happened. It's not the end of the world - a new door of opportunity has been opened up for you.
but this is why it's better to post the good things
Take cpl to email.  You can post great things about a company, but once you post how much you make (no matter what company), you are going to upset a lot of people who are inevitably making less than you do.  If you must, post a pay range because you can't say they pay 10 cpl period, because obviously they don't.
I read some good things about DSG.
They have a job opening listed on the job seekers board.
Mostly good things about Axolotl
I checked the archives on this company just a week or so ago and was pleased to find pretty much only good things folks had to say about Axolotl.
Not true. Good things have been said. sm

Actually only one person said anything negative and that was that they didn't pay, but others who have and are working for them countered that and said they do indeed pay.

I started with them last week and am happy so far.  Haven't worked a full pay period so can't say for sure on the pay/don't pay issue. 

They have an office in Texas and an office in India.  If you don't like/want to work for a company that works with India also then it isn't for you, otherwise it has been good for me so far.  The account I am on is pretty easy and I am being very productive.  It is editing and transcription, from what I've seen about 1/3 standard transcription and 2/3 editing VR files.

Hope this helps.

Well, that explains a lot of things - none of them good.

Look in the archives. Not too many good things said.
Lots of good things below about
I just applied and hope to hear from them, the archives and the posts below from some of their MTs looks good.
I've seen mostly good things on here...
I just signed on with them and am excited to get started.  :D 
agree - most people only have good things to say about MDI-MD
