What is MT transcription?

Posted By: Maybe you do need to go to school. on 2007-04-01
In Reply to: no, just an honest question. - mcangeli

I do not know what companies you talked with, but you are either a Transcriptionist or you're not.  There is no in between.  It is black or it is white.  I don't even know at this point what you want to know.  Go ahead and give CS $5,000.00, but in my opinion, if you are already a transcriptionist then why give them your money?  Purchase AAMT Book of Style Second Edition and set yourself up at home.  There's not much more to it other than what hours you want to work, employee vs. independent contractor, etc.  There are plenty of psych jobs to go around.  Again please clue me in on what company said you are not qualified to be an MT transcriptionist.  What is that?  MT = medical transcriptionist.  I'm just trying to help you save some money, but if you are set on going to school then go for it!  Good luck.

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.

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.

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.

VR and Transcription
Can anyone recommend a good company where I can perform both voice recognition and transcription?  Thank You
Perhaps you are confusing C&C Transcription with CC Transcription - there are a couple of C&C's in Florida - C&C Transcription in Orlando, has not contracted anyone new in over a year. Any and all correspondence with them would have relayed this message. They have had a freeze on all new IC's -C&C is still doing medical transcription and has been for over 14 years but has now branched off into DVDs, CDs, VHS, anykind of tape and any and all forms of convention and business dictation.
US Transcription

They are real because my company that I work for deals with them.

However, I have tried writing to them on there website and have never gotten a reply. Perhaps it doesn't work?!


US Transcription sm
I haven't worked there, but I've seen the work that comes from there.  It's for crap. Seriously.  I wonder if they hire mostly all new MT grads; which is fine, grads have to start somewhere.  But I can't say much for their QA program then.   I know they have some experienced people working for them, but most of the work I've seen is slop.  I wouldn't work for them. 
WNC Transcription
Has anybody worked for this company?  Any feedback would greatly be appreciated.
WNC Transcription
I am starting to get that impression also. I realized that they never asked me for my information (i.e., SS#, etc.). Also, every time I e-mail them a question, I never get an answer back. Strange company. I think I am going to have second thoughts with this one. Thanks for your input.
DDS Transcription???
I have not been able to find anything on this company.  I don't recall submitting my resume to them (but I sent out a lot of them so it is possible).  Thanks!

VA Transcription?

Hi!  Can someone please provide some insight as to VA transcription?  Is there much of a difference between VA and clinic?  Any iinfo appreciated.


VA transcription...sm
I have done VA in the past. There are still clinic and inpatient reports, just like with any client. The VA tends to have tons of different doctors, and a LOT of ESL when I was doing it. But, having said that, the VA system has had an overhaul with a main database-type system where all records are in the same system regardless of state, which is great for the patient. In my experience though, I have to say I saw reports that shouldn't have passed QA but did, so I hope companies who take them on today will have better QA for those patient reports. I had a company (15 years ago) that didn't seem to care about the report, just how many lines were done for that day.
