You wont make any money with them. Expect to get ripped out. The hospital they do work for should...

In Reply to: They should be called OUT OF FOCUS! See the archives - about this shoddy company nm
be ashamed to sent their work to Indian companies like treat their employees like crap. You can bet the hospital pays full price, but once the MTs get their part, it is minimal. Dont go there!!

Curious, can you make more money working for a hospital rather than a clinic?
I've never really did acute care and curious?
How much can I expect to make the first year of MT work, around $20,000?
It is the only place I have been for 5 years that I feel I am not being ripped off and making money
I work hard but I did for the other companies too and bit by bit more things were stripped away and I would end up making half again. Keystrokes has given me confidence again, and I am making money. That is the name of the game, that is me though. I love it here.
And expect to work long hours but somehow you only make peanuts.
I suspect that they must not pay for spaces, headers, etc.. as you can work all day and somehow you barely have any lines. I smell a rat.. very suspicious to me that you could work so hard and it just never adds up.
Me too. You work, you make money. SM
You work well, you make more money. You work smart, you make more money. You work long, you make more money. You work hard, you make more money. The key word all else depends on isn't zone, it's work.
I would rather work on 1 account and make more money, than 5 different ones! No thanks. sm
I think their new program absolutely sucks and there are a heck of a lot of people who say the sound quality is horrendous. I wasn't sticking around to find out. I made my decision as soon as I saw what it was about and knew it would slow me way down. Hey, to each their own. If you like it, fine. I am happy about my decision and glad I did it.
No, you won't make more money unless you do triple the work load. sm
Instead of transcribing 1200 to 2000 lines a day, you will need to edit 4000 to 5000 lines a day.
That is very difficult most days, the most I did, and this is with 5 years experience, was 3800 a day, and that is not consistent.
So, 3800 lines x what are you being paid 5 cpl = $190. I have to tell you 3800 lines of editing a day is tough to do most days. I had days where I could barely get 2000 done. It all depends on how recognized the dictator is and how many small errors are in the report.
I work at DDS and love it. Make great money!
I am on a new account, doing work types I cant make money on. nm
I do ER and basic 4 work and make excellent money
Anyone who is hired for one work type only should make less money (IMO)
I recommend Keystrokes too. I make great money, have a lot of work and have sm
been around the block a time or two.
I have worked for them for 6 months but had worked for them previously (in 2003). I left for several reasons but all of them have been resolved. I think a big part of the improvement is due to direct deposit and the office. When I worked for them before, the owner ran things from her home office but now there is an office that has a lot (not sure how many) people in it and I can get answers and help quickly when I need it.
I think that they had some growing pains but resolved them. I know that they are still growing, even faster than ever from what my lead tells me. If you have a lot of hospital experience, they are hiring for two new accounts and need good MTs.
Venting- how can you make money or get line counts when all the work is given to someone else!
Nothing seems fair anymore. Does anyone else ever have this happen?
I have dial-up and make money. I download my work and I can start transcribing
as soon as the first report has downloaded. Once I download I disconnect, do my work, then connect and send my completed work. I usually start my download in the morning then go take my shower, feed all the animals, grab myself something to drink and I'm ready to go. Once the work is downloaded what type of connection you have doesn't matter.
Sure it is safe to post your resume on the net, provided it is a reputable site. I would not just post it anywhere, but post it on the job boards here and other reputable sites. Most sites have some type of safeguards in place so that you have to have registered with the site and/or paid a usage fee to view information like addresses and phone numbers, so that not just anyone can view the information.
Another option may be an account that has C-phone or similar accounts, where you aren't downloading, but dialing directly into the system.
My account went to India, have been struggling to make any money for the last month, crappy work. nm
Amherst so we make less money and they get more money for MQ and bigger bonuses. Our guidelines came
yep, gotta spend money to make money. NM
I doubt you will make enough money in 5 hours a week to make
They don't expect U to make lines during first 90 days
Hang in there, it will get better, it takes time.
How much can you realistically expect to make daily doing SR?? NM
Why would the money be better at a hospital? It is hourly RO
...well it is *usually* hourly, but the sky is the limit when you are on production. I guess you just have to find the right company for at-home (I have, some have not), because I can be in contact with someone to ask a question within mere seconds via IM or phone. Everyone has their own preference, though. I liked the food at the hospital cafeteria! LOL
You won't be able to make any money there.
Especially if you have to enter ALL of the patient info.
MAKE MONEY ?
How on earth can anybody make a decent pay with this editing crap?? It is not user-friendly...it is slow and they pay is even more crapier !
Can you make any money?
Just wondering if if is possible to make much money doing transcription for these companies at home. I just started with one and they are very nice, professional, etc. etc., however I feel I am moving along at quite a good pace and am just making a little over $10 an hour. I was hoping for more like $25. Is it possible anywhere? Let me know what the average pay is?
I wish I would get more OPS, always make more money with them.
I think MTs believe NO ONE should make money but them!
If no profit is to be made, no one will be in business - whether it is a small MTSO, an MT on her own, or a national. Heck, even a hospital will close if it isn't making profit!
Business is to make money. Competition is so high for companies/MTSOs. It's not the MTSOs fault, is it? No. They have a right to make a profit for their work.
I'm like you: I don't agree with everything going on in the profession but I am very happy with my work and always have been. I can accept the things that I cannot change. Otherwise, if I am unhappy, I move on. No sense sitting around being glib about something you have every opportunity to change.
Sometimes you make LESS money
Because of having rounded experience, you sometimes get all the crap/scrap work.
How do you make money like this?
Are most of the reports full listens? Does it balance out with lots of reports with only 1 or 2 blanks? I'm considering an offer and need to know if I can make any money with Focus on escription?
How do you make money on VR?
Please tell me how to make $50 an hour with Escription. I need to be making more than 7cpl. My husband can't work so I have to take care of my kids. Please email me any info on how to make money on Escription. Thanks so much
At TT, can I really make as much money with VR
make more money at Wal-Mart
and they give you a piece of the company
Etransplus--can you make money there
Does anyone know about etransplus. Upon until now the feedback I have gotten has been pretty good looking through the posts. I was really taken aback by the amount of styles they have. Wow, what a change for me. I know I can get used to it, but I know I'm going to probably take some time. How do their line counts jive with a character count line? I really liked the fact that they offered insurance for 900 lines a day. That is great. I hope I can bang out the lines!
At Spheris, if you want to make more money
you have to go to a higher level account, period.
That is the only fair way to do this, in my opinion.
so why not buy a few shares and make money off them anyway?
I make great money there
I do not do radiology, but ER and basic 4, and I make 10 cpl, have tons of work, and make a great living there. That is just my own experience. Others may have had different experiences there.
You can make a lot more money than that at home
MT's often make more money than managers too
hard to make money
One account has a rotten platform that doesn't work half the time and has a long record of miscounting lines. Just about everything is 100% listen which makes it even harder to make money by the line. Big turnover in account managers lately so expect to work for phone clerks and HR clerks who have been promoted to account manager (cheaper that way) and people who have no acute care experience whatsoever. You've probably already been told there is no holiday pay, the vacation time sucks, and the insurance is horrible. If you just need editing experience to move on, that that's the place.
i make more money at home but
you must be disciplined to sit and not get distracted. There are a lot of distractions at home.. I do know I save a lot of money not using my car.
And that might just explain why MTs can't make any money. nm
I beg to differ, I make more money on VR sm
than regular transcription now.
Gosh you can make a lot more money in QA
Could you expand on that? Why can't you make any money with it?
make better money coding...sm
I do earn more money coding, mainly because it is hourly pay (so no fluctuations like you get with line counts) and the value of the benefits. I do think there are coding jobs which are much less stressful than where I work. Actually, I think most of them are. Our facility is huge, actually has it's own little city, with 3 hospitals, one with a level 1 trauma center which is shared with a children's hospital, 150-some clinics, an eye institute, and a cancer center plus is a teaching facility so we do the coding for the college facilities. Most coding jobs in my area (midwest) are working from home. Our benefits include health, dental, life, disability and vision insurance, FSA and HSA accounts, tuition reimbursement, AHIMA membership paid, 403B match, 4.6 hours of earned vacation and 1.8 hours of sick time per pay period (2 weeks) so they're pretty good. I do know coders in other facilities around here who do not have the same stressful conditions which we have and who love their jobs. Much of it is due to size and our remote management. I used to work at a smaller hospital and really liked coding there. I left when my daughter became ill and needed me home. I ended up at the facility I am with now because they were one of the few places who did have home coding available at the time that i started. Now I just think I am too darned old to start over someplace else and give up my seniority, vacation accrual, etc., so I will stick it out until I can retire. So it's my own fault I'm miserable 'cuz I don't make the change! If you go into coding, I hope you get to be one of the people who does love it and would venture a guess you would not find the stress level to be what ours is unless you work for one of the largest of facilities.
I couldn't make any money with them
for pretty much the same reason -- and I usually do pretty well with ESL dictators, but combined with the dictation quality it was rough. I think they started at 0.0875 per line, with maybe more per line depending on how many lines you produced. I don't remember for sure about that though.
Used to make good money
My income has dropped by $20,000 in the past 2 years working at Spheris, and from what I understand new hires get paid even less.
I asked for and make no money with the
rescue group. I do not file on any taxes, I did not incorporate it, my only thing is to be able to interact with the animals and rescue from otherwise the animals being put down. I did not go into for the money. If others make money off of it, that is up to them. I only finance.
I do VR and love it and yes you can make money but
you need a good platform to be able to do it. I work on Escription, possibly the best according to others who work on it also. I make 4 cents a line,the biggest percentage of my work day is VR but also have some straight thrown in. I do NOT use any keys to help me. I have done MTing now over 30+ years, no newbie here and fast speed of 120+. I usually average over $20 per hour. I am very familiar with my acct (same hospital job now for 19 years), hold my pedal down and fast forward as much as humanly possible and really like it much better than straight anymore. No secret on my end, just able to edit fast and yes, I do read each and every word and do not just let the work go through in order to make what I would consider decent money.
I never said I didn't make money being an MT. sm
I simply was exploring what would happen when a manager was informed they would take home half their pay in October. I don't know if I'll make money when my pay is cut. Will you when yours is cut?
Kudos for the rolling eyes, I wouldn't have thought of that.
What hospital was it? I want to make sure I don't go there.
There is no subsitute for a dictated and transcribed report. You can't get comprehensive info without it. It takes 38 seconds to dictate a returning patient and 2 minutes for a new patient. How long does it take to point and click 500 times?
I make twice as much as my hospital job
They can keep their on-site jobs. I always had to pick up all the slack from my lazy co-workers whether that be other MTs, secretaries, techs, and even my supervisor. I hated working on-site. Plus, I make twice as much now working production for me! I work for me now!
