Some accounts (ortho) have assigned doctors. I am sure that seniority plays a part in the process.
As a new person, you would expect to get the worst of the work, the worst shifts, etc in any other field, so why should MT be different. Rad techs start on 3rd shift, nurses move up to 1st shift, etc. The new guy never gets the best of the crop. That would not make sense.
I work for Keystrokes and have assigned doctors. I'm very happy. sm
I believe you can get overflow work if your doctor does not dictate on any given day, if there is any overflow work on that day. My pay has always been on time. I highly recommend them.
With the KS ortho accounts, each doctor is assigned to an MT. sm
I have 3 doctors that I am responsible, some only have 1 if they are high volume. Easy system to use, great docs, great lead MT. Pay starts low at 0.08 but goes up after 90 days. There are no ESL on the ortho account I am on, which has around 40 doctors. The downside is the first week. The accounts are overwhelming with instructions at first, but once you have it all down, they are great!
because C-phone accounts are cumbersome...and assigned
I think she means she's the only one working on the accounts she assigned to - sm
I know I sure feel that way sometimes. Of course, everyone jumps on the last day or two of the pay period and now, (crickets)......
Easy platform, assigned accounts, always plenty of work. Great OM and boss. nm
Anyone know a company that works with small pool of doctors? Tired of so many doctors nm
The coverage is perfect for me as all my doctors and my kids doctors are sm
in network. With WebMedx none of them were. The coverage is much better for me. My husband's company wanted to charge us $1470 per month for family coverage. There are three of us, so that would be $490 per month per person, which is insane.
It is Latin and means "without delay", or "immediately."
??? not clear on that.
Different take on the meaning of this
If your testing did not qualify you did it ever occur to you that you did too well? Perhaps you did ace the test as you believe (I do not doubt your feelings at all), but that would mean they would have to give you top dollar, and they don't want to hire someone like that right now, or ever. Don't know this company, but I have been through this. But I go one step further. I always am flexible with my cpl rate in the cover letter, and so when I ace a test like you did they do get back to me. But, I have been offered 6.5 to 7 c/line, no kidding. Then, I say no. What do they think flexible means? Stupid! Yes. They think I am stupid so offer me a job. They know you are not stupid because you aced the test, so they say you are not qualified for their low pay scale. That is just IMHO. Sorry to take the opposite position from the other poster who says you are not as good as you think. Since this person does not know you or your skills, I think that comment may be way off base. So, don't let these things ruin your day. Count it as a blessing and find a decent place who will appreciate you. IMHO. Good luck!
Meaning and substance???
If you are an editor, you will soon be out of work. What exactly do you mean when you say 'meaning' and 'substance'?
Meaning, you are not getting 1000....
which I thought was the requirement. I have a friend who tried them out and went days without work.
Meaning you don't get paid for it
Ah, but you miss my meaning.
If she does not know that a lot is two separate words, I can only imagine the other kinds of errors that she makes. That is so very basic. I am not jealous of someone who does not know that a lot is two separate words. I am not QA and I don't work for TT and I am not policing anything. I am just really, really tired of the seeing ALOT and other inexcusable errors from people as they are bragging about their awesome quality-oriented companies that hired them. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is tired of it.
Not meaning to argue...
but they DID lie. They initially told me that typing was not required. Just as they will review what I type, they could allow me to QA and review what I have QA'd. Very simple.
Whatever their reasons are for requiring this - they should be honest and tell the folks to whom they make an offer that typing is required.

Thank You all and I wasn't meaning ESL accent...
I was meaning ESL who can't speak English, but make up their own form of Americanese language (broken up/half-English)i.e. physical thrappy for physical therapy and palawong is echocardiogram, therefore the whole report is a big fat blank because I still couldn't figure out how palawong sounded echocardiogram. Thank MT@diskriter, I will give Diskriter a try and I hope to get 2 accounts and stay on those 2 accounts besides rotating accounts 4 or 5 times a week. The downtime sounds like some good insurance. Last job work 2 hours and had no work so I would sit and baby-sit the computer catching job here and there for about 19 hours for 600 lines due to no work and no pay. Thanks again all.
" FOR NOW "... 2 small words with a very big meaning. nm
If the error changes meaning of the report
Because that's dangerous. It should be something that almost never happens though.
Meaning I sure hope the above poster
isn't a manager at Ax. That is what I meant. Obviously they must work there because they are aware of e mails.
Well, I really wasn't meaning to imply that something ... SM
was wrong with the line counts. Just for some reason, I have a very difficult time making my lines. Yes, what I am typing for the day definitely has something to do with it. I feel that the fact that I get reports from 2 different accounts mixed in with each other also is not conducive to speed. But I really brought this up, just kind of thinking out loud, that I wonder if the fact that it is a good company outweighs the fact that I am not making any money! That's what I'm trying to resolve in my own mind.
Production incentive meaning overtime
Then it would be legal.
She is meaning you will see lazy MTs while doing QA that no longer care
and do you mean "THEY" meaning DeVenture or in general?
If in general, that's nothing new. If you mean DeVenture, then I'm glad I got turned down.
SC meaning SE (statutory employee) and or IC contractor.
Still looking for help on employee positions with no VR which are good. Thanks.
I did not. My assigned account kept
running out of work, and I wasn't trained on a secondary
although I asked. I agree with giving notice, but the workload on the account was so minimal that I probably did them a favor. BTW, everyone was cool about it, and we went our separate ways without any drama.
No choice, it is assigned, & just happens to be less
presents itself, I sometimes cherry-pick as well. Especially if it's late, I'm tired, and my line count isn't what it should be.
Any MTs out there been asked to do overtime on a specific account and told this was mandatory and then when the time came to do that account were given something else entirely? How frustrating is that especially on a Friday afternoon when you would rather not be working anyway! It is also bad enough that the account they do give you has the worst audio in the world and keeps breaking up. AHHH!!! Sorry, had to vent. I have pretty much had it!
Well, as an IC assigned work
That's one reason. Another reason is that its usually first in first out. If suzy Q is sick that day, who will do her work? All of the other employees have their assigned work to do, so where does that leave suzy Q's dictators? Just out of luck?
Who is the lucky one assigned
I work from a pool. I love it. I can pick and choose or I can sit all morning and take nothing; that's IC.
Now as an employee, assigned dictators could work but what if that dictator is on vacation for two weeks? Do you get someone else's lines and take work from them?
It should really be first in first out. I have my own accounts and I guess considered a small MTSO. I do the work myself though - no subs. If I had subs, I'd have them do first in first out even if that meant a different dictator every report. That would be fair for TAT.
If you want just one particular dictator and then the work runs out for that day, do you then start taking Suzy Q's work or do you sit and wait until tomorrow?
Do you see how this can get really hairy for an MTSO? They need the work done within TAT and can't spend that valuable time worrying about whether or not you are familiar, making the best lines for your pocket, etc. It's not in this business to worry about the MT, the MT worries about themselves and how good their skills are and can perform the job handed to them.
One of the reasons the hospital I worked for outsourced was because they were tired of the work getting backed up when one or the other of us lonely 2 transcriptionists God Forbid needed a vacation day or two or three or maybe a week or two.
I'm not trying to bash you, I just want you to think about their side of things and how no one would want the mumbler or the ESL, so how is that fair to that person who is assigned that ESL?
On my account, I have one doc that I am assigned to. My main priority is his work for that day. If other MTs are out or busy, I can be asked to help them out. It is hit or miss. Last week I did 10,000 lines (my hands were killing me) just helping out for the MTs on vacation.
The other account I work on is a pool, so I go there when I am done with my assigned work. This week, my doc is out and I am only working in the pool. It is backed up and getting further behind, and it is mostly very short jobs (20 seconds), so I much prefer my other account.
I understand there are some new docs coming on, so hopefully this will pick up.
I love having a few assigned docs since I get to know their style and makes my job much easier.
So, Yes, they were once OmniMed, meaning the same people. Thought so! BAD company! x
No we won't. I said slow, meaning slower than usual, should have clarified.
I understand!! Really, it doesn't change the meaning or context and
it is not a medical error, so why are they wasting their time on such trivial things. I call it trivial, because in my opinion, it is.
QA is for editing and correcting gross medical errors and errors that truly change the meaning and context of the document. Some QA folks are ridiculous and feel the need to be important.
I have always ignored those types of corrections. Now, if I made a big boo-boo, I would pay attention to the feedback.
Don't you think it depends on which acct you are assigned to?
I have a couple accts but don't know if either is the notorious one that supposedly has all the demo screen work. One acct I have is definitely more involved in demos than the other, but overall not so bad. Just wondering if it's a case of which one you are stuck with? Just trying to think of some ideas of why some like it and some hate it. Also depends what you are used to before working for Amphion, since you can't help but compare it.
are you assigned specific jobs?
If the work is not assigned to you, then someone is cherrypicking...nm
assigned work followup
I would not have cared so much had I not already worked a FULL month of overtime. Also, it was radiology which I cannot stand! If I wanted to do radiology I would have kept my other job. Not only are these short and do not give lines, they just stink. Just my opinion. Sorry all MTs who like doing them, I do not.
How does assigned work = employee?
I have my own clients. All that work would be considered assigned work; there is no one else to do it but me. And as for the MTSO I work for (and the individual docs, for that matter,) it does not matter what they assign me to do, they just cannot dictate how I get it done or the hours I work, right? I want to be totally clear on my understanding of this. Thanks.
You're right! Hahaha My typo totally messed up the meaning!
Yes, MQ is aware of my other position. I was very up front with them when I took their offer. Spheris probably would not be happy about my situation, I agree.
My other comments were made because no matter what I post, someone has got to be interested in what I'm doing or not doing, whether they think it is right or not, etc.
My whole post on this thread was an answer about great companies. I posted. Then, if you'll go back and look at this entire thread, I am the one getting all the virtual "you can't do that" complainers on my back.
It's not anyone else's business. One of the OPs started it I suppose with the trying to tell me I can't post on this forum because I work for Spheris and I can't use their computer. Then others chime in. Then others start in with what they think I can and cannot do.
It's none of anyone's business. I wasn't addressing any of those subjects whatsoever.
I seem to be prime fuel for the flaming activities, regardless of the subject of my posts. Even if I respond to others, 9 times out of 10 I get flamed and for other subject matter most of those times.
Hahaha, you are right in your answers to some of the other posters. You and I are having an adult conversation and understanding each other well, even if we disagree. THAT is how it should be.
As I answered you somewhere in this same thread, I understand what you were bringing to light for others who may not realize about working for more than 1 company. It is a gamble. I agree wholeheartedly.
It isn't just the competition between Spheris and MQ though. That expectation is with other companies as well, maybe not all, but most. And most, if you read the employee handbook imply that they do not want their employees on forums like this.
One of the OPs stated that I signed a contract with Spheris forbidding me to be on this forum. No ma'am. That simply isn't true. I went back and looked at everything I've signed. I've signed no such contract. There may be an implied policy but I have not signed any such contract.
I personally think that each company has really good aspects. I can also see where each could improve. That will be with any company though. As long as I am well paid and have flexibility and opportunity, I'm a happy clam.
You are assigned "x" amount of minutes every day, you work that out between the
two of you. IC status. Pay is on time every two weeks, but there is a long wait before you get your first check. After that, it's smooth sailing.
You must not be one of us who logs on their assigned shift only to be told...
to stay off the system as the work is too low. Nice thought though. I'd really LIKE to do my job when I am supposed to but I have no control over when they tell us ot stay off until the afternoon and you sit there prayer there will be work then.
When going from IC to employee I realize that you must keep an assigned schedule but
does that mean if you are scheduled, for example, 8 a.m. to noon, you cannot move away from your computer for any time at all? I am used to being able to get up and down when I have to and I am wondering if being roped in to certain hours will prevent me from doing this. Can anyone tell me how it works for them with having a certain period of time you are expected to work? TIA!
The IT person will call you at the assigned time (sm)
and will do the install for you - there will be a link where you hand over control of your computer and they install and test everything so you're ready to go. Good luck to you!
They use ExText, min. of 500 lpd, you get assigned mins. of dictation, make your own
WEBMEDX- Assigned acct or pool and how is the platform?
No experience, but was told that work is assigned, no pools, and it's still 8cpl as an IC. nm
I wasn't hired for 1 work type, but told them I like OPs so that is what I am assigned. When I r
out of ops, I usually stop unless we are out of TAT on other jobs because I do not want to take other people's work. I do not think I should get paid less for that.
Can you say where you work if you get assigned docs/accts.? I'm tired of this pool garbage/left
