the hourly pay was around $9/hr. I had plenty of experience too. The lady there who had about 25 years of experience made around $12/hr.... I have no idea why it was so low. That's why I ended up working for a service at home. As low as VR pays, that $9-$12 is starting to sound good though. What a shame this profession is.

Call the hospital medical records dept and ask who does their transcription. They will tell you.
Call the medical records dept there. Sm
I did a bit of this account, too, but my primary was a sister hospital. Loved it.
Working inhouse for hospital, sm
There's 2 of us for 25 staff MTs plus monitoring the outsource vendor. We're both paid salary. Works out pretty well for my budget. Living in Florida, salary range for our jobs I believe is $35K to $39K annually.
I worked for a national company previously, we were paid on production, at about 4 cents per line. It was a horrible way to make a paycheck. Would never go back to that.
That is true. If the hospital has inhouse
people, then they have first priority on work. If they can do it, then the hospital will not make it available.
rad dept at the hospital I worked at
everything was automatic and errors throughout; no one cares anymore.... . it's sad in a lot of ways... . needless to say, I no longer go to that hospital ; they can forget it; I wouldn't send my worst enemy there; yes it's that bad....
The hospital I work has no intention of outsourcing...physicians and administrators want inhouse tra
and Medquist hasn't bothered us at all. Our reps are still the same personable guys they have always been.
AC Medical Records?
HI! Has anyone heard of AC Medical Records in Oregon? I was offered a position with them and was wondering if anyone had any info. Thanks in advance!
AC Medical Records
Seeking feedback on this company with an Oregon address, positive, negative, or neutral. Any info welcomed. Thanks.
Which is EXACTLY why U.S. medical records should
Their poverty and desperateness to survive is exactly why something like ID theft has certainly got to be too big of a temptation to ignore.
Did you guys hear about the stolen records at Grady Hospital
Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Ga. The news is reporting that patient info was stolen by some transcription employees who worked for an outsourced company who again outsourced some of the work. Anybody know which company does transcription for Grady..I'm just curious. Please email me if you know.
Here is the article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
The FBI is investigating the theft of medical records of patients at Grady Memorial Hospital, officials said Friday.
Grady spokeswoman Denise Simpson provided few details on the thefts that were discovered late Thursday. She said it remains unknown how many patient records were stolen, which patients were affected or how the records were stolen.
The records pertained to recorded physician comments that Grady sent to a vendor to transcribe into medical notes. The records were stolen from a subcontractor employed by the vendor. The missing records were kept on computer files.
Grady officials do not at this point believe the records contained patients' Social Security numbers or financial information such as credit card numbers, but Simpson emphasized that investigators are only starting their inquiry.
Simpson did not identify either the vendor or subcontractor.
We sincerely regret the occurrence of this breach of confidentiality of patient records in the hands of one of our vendors, Simpson said in a prepared statement, and we are hopeful that our quick response to this theft will significantly reduce any negative consequences for our patients and the physicians who care for them.
She said Grady would notify the patients as soon as possible.
It is unclear who might have stolen the records or for what purpose, she said.

Anyone have any input on Medical Records Crop out of Maryland? In can't find them in the archives. Thanks in advance.
Medical Records Corp
Hi there. Not sure if I am correct but I used to be with Medical Records Corp out of Florida and then it was just MRC and of course, Medquist bought them out. Is there a different Medical Records Corp you are talking about? Sorry if this info is wrong.
Medical Records Corp
I am talking w/them now. Just did testing today. Seems like a nice lady that I talked with. You do know that they don't pay for spaces don't you?
Medical Records Corp.
Worked for them for a very short time. Very unorganized. Ran out of work the first week almost everyday within the first few hours of my shift. It did not work out for me. Had trouble getting my paycheck as well. Maybe things are better now.
MEDICAL RECORDS STOLEN
I watch the news out of Atlanta. The story they are handing out about the stolen medical records is that the company Grady outsources to outsourced it yet to another vendor and that is where the records were taken from. Sounds like, to me, it was offshored through their original vendor!! I would love to know the REAL story!!!!
Most people don't even know their medical records are
good sense to occasionally pay the fee, and have ALL your medical records sent to you for review. And not just the bits and pieces they CHOOSE to post online, if your medical provider has a patient website. Those are highly edited. You want to know EVERYthing that was dictated and typed. ESPECIALLY if you're having medical problems, insurance problems, your doctor isn't taking your illness seriously, etc.
One time I took the usual, illegible Rx to the pharmacy to get meds a specialist had prescribed for me. Was shocked to find out they were the same meds I had told her DIDN'T WORK at the last visit. It was clearly there in my previous report, too, so there's no way she could say she didn't hear me when I told her. She heard me alright, she just didn't check my medical record when she ordered the meds.
EVEN WORSE, at the next visit, she ordered a muscle relaxant for me that I was ALLERGIC to! (And that had been in my medical record for YEARS.) But apparently the origin of the more recent reports was slightly in question. No signature, and no one would verify to me if they were typed offshore or in the US.
So, in addition to educating people about their SS #'s, etc. going offshore, educate them that when something in their medical care is fishy, to become a detective and find out WHERE their reports have been transcribed. My quess is OFFSHORE.
Looking into medical records and include
this into the criteria to hire somebody or not, yes, this I would regard as overall discrimination.
But to be subjected to a hearing test to be hired for an MT job, is not discrimination of any sort.
VR and messed up medical records
I agree. I have a friend who asked me to look at his medical record that he obtained from the hospital and I found a lot of mistakes that would not be made had they not used VR and the MT Editor had not missed those mistakes. Like lists. Instead of a vertical list, it runs the list altogether. Impression 1,2,3 and 4 are in one big paragraph. No punctuation, words run together. Yes, there will be lawsuits.
I see errors on my OWN medical records and
so, are heads going to roll because of that? Someone typed in I had hypotension when it is really hypertension, someone said I had MRA done because of abdominal pain, never was abdominal pain. My mother was sent some wrong medication from the drug store and you think anything has come out of this?
all medical records should be electronic.
tell everyone you know that medical records go to India
Any information on MRC-MD, aka Medical Records Corp?
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
Medical Records Corp of Maryland
Anyone know anything about this company? Any info would be appreciated!
Has anyone ever heard of AC Medical Records Management out of Oregon? TIA nm
My personal opinion is MEDICAL RECORDS as we know them will not be around in 3 years.
There will be no need for the HP, DS, and other notes we have to generate right now.
The only reason we do notes is so hospitals can get paid.
If the coders can read the chart, and don't need us to type out what a doctor says, they don't need 80% of what we do.
We shouldn't be doing DIABETES LETTERS and all that crap. That responsibility will be shifted off to other entities.
The op notes may be still done but I sort of doubt it.
nice know'n ya.
Mine too - Medical Records Corp - Gone with the Qwind. (nm)
I remember Medical Records Corporation, worked there, SM
then it became something like Medical Records Group and then Medquist. It kept going down, down, down..... Sad.
Any info on Medical Records Corp or FutureNet?
Can't find much info here on archive search...anybody know anything they can share? thanks much!
Offshoring of American medical records is flat out wrong and...
a security risk in some cases...
Per job post you need ŕ-3 years of medical records transcription experience"
Reason for the revolving door at OSi, always has been that way, always will be
MRC (Medical Records Corp)?? Any information out there on them. I couldnt find anything in the
archives. Any help would be appreciated. Thinking of applying.
There are few account for editing Powerscribe. Not for medical records or for most radiology sm
accounts. There are few accounts that ditched VR, which is nice. I think that is going to help set Keystrokes apart; being open to the idea of it but not pushing it.
Our medical records are private. They should not be sent overseas. The language barrier can sm
cause a lot of very serious errors in a medical record, and I, for one, want my work kept here.
There are a lot of services that do not send work overseas and will not because they believe in keeping everything in the U.S. It was the deciding factor for me when weighing between two companies. One company was very vague when asked, but the other, Keystrokes, was adamant about staying U.S. only.
I started with them 2 years ago and will retire with this company, as long as it keeps the same ownership (had to clarify that as if the ownership changes, I would probably leave). I have not heard of them selling out, so I am hoping to stay!
I disagree. Accuracy of patient medical records should not be dependent on how smooth your life is
at the time. If you had quality issues, and they were being sent to you, which is a warning, then you should have been extra careful. Our clients deserve a perfect product regardless of what life is handing you at the moment.
Can anyone give me good or bad on Medical Records Corporation or Transcription Relief Services? nm
Anyone work at NJPR-Hospital and Medical SM
Support Services? This is a new one on me. Thanks

Does anybody have any information about this place? Thanks.
When I was an inhouse MT, I used to use -
the 'flu', rather than go into detail about whatever personal issue was causing me to need a short-notice day off. After all, everyone knows what the flu is, and how contagious it is, and they don't want you to give it to THEM.
I would take it. I have been working 25 years at my inhouse job and only getting $14 so that sounds pretty good starting out.
Most of those are inhouse positions so just
Perhaps you need to work inhouse somewhere sm
there is communication and lots of it, or quite possibly, none at all. Like when the mangager closes the door to avoid avoid the staff, or doesn't return your voice mails or, better yet, takes a 3 week vacation just when the staff's tempers are burning hot over one issue or another. How about this scenario? You go in to talk with her about an issue you have and the next thing you know, it's all over the office and you are the one at fault? Or, how is this for communication (*&()^&^%&&$-get my drift? My manager was like that with 1/2 of her office staff. Quite a witch-which is why I left. She is still there turning over MTs left and right because of her communication policy. TT is not like that in my books. TT responds to my emails nearly every time. They don't respond to my calls because I never feel the need to call.
When I was inhouse the rad docs liked it
And at that hospital those same docs were pushing for VR. Most of 'em liked to goof off for hours wandering the halls telling jokes, then wanted to read like mad when our MT staff was down to a couple night people, and whine that we didn't get it all typed for them to sign off before they went home. So I think its fitting its going to bite them in the butt.
This was years ago, inhouse-
anyone remember those days? I made $$$$ then and surely did not want to lose that job so I was an employee, still got the days off planned as per her but had to take without pay. I would have never quit that job just on something like that, too much money involved.
