Sorry. Meant this for the main board.


Yes. There is a post on the Main board regarding this. (SM)

the right board. We only have 9 boards now, so if your post fits in one of those categories, do not post on the Main board or your post will be deleted with no explanation.


Post on Main Board now about her company. nm
Answered your post on the main board.nm
I posted this on the main board. Though I would post it here as well.

If you want mandatory credentialling, then do something about the pay range for MTs!  8 cpl does not cut it when you consider the knowledge and education required for a qualified MT.

Coders in the midwest (where I live) who have their CCS make $20/hr with little to no experience!  Do not for one minute compare the CMT to the CCS!!  AHIMA is taking care of its coders, making sure coders and records techs are acknowledged for their expertise in the heath information industry and compensated for achieving their credentials.  The ADHI only wants our money.  They have done absolutely nothing for the MT who is credentialed --- 8 cpl or 9 cpl!?!?!!? --- does that sound like we are highly regarded health information professionals to you? 

Testing, wasn't able to post on Main Board. nm
See Hayseed's post with video on Main Board - nm
Read the Sticky post at at the top of the Main board that I posted and that will explain it.


Note post on main board re: MTIA forcing credentialing. Can we say police state?
This was moved from main board to company board. Replies don't transfer. nm
Sorry! Wrong board. Reposted on Main board. NM
On the main board. nm
I also saw on the main board where Liz
from MDI said they pay ULD for FT MTs, they have never paid for mine nor have they offered!
also on main board

why don't you put this on the main board
look on the main board (sm)
Employer offering to pay 17 cpl, 11 cpl for psych...now thats what i'm talking about!  Cut and dry, show me the money honey.  Too bad I don't know what a C-phone is or i'd jump on it like stink on poo.
Please: Main board. NM
Take a look on the main board
going from bad to worse -
Try on the main board.
look on the main board
I saw a post on the main board from someone who works for this company and really likes it.  It is about midway down I think in the posts where it talks about MTs always looking for better jobs.
I should have said main board, not
company board..brain hasn't had enough caffeine today. Sorry abour that
Main board 8-26-08
I just did a search on the Main Board and on 8-26-08 there was someone else that noticed lower editing counts but felt it had to do with possible moving to offshore, but that is not the case that I am aware of here, but she also found others that this happened to.  I really am questioning this software program.  I know on another transcribing program (Medi-something) they can make your line length anything they want, show your line count as one thing and then actually make it something different that you do not know about.  That is because I was a manager and saw the director's capabilities.  Well, hmm, interesting... 
See main board--more posts there..NM
See the explanation on the main board.

I should probably move this to the main board - nm
You did, on the Main board; it belongs here! Thank you! (NM)
I answered on main board, but (sm)
I must have said something wrong or the response got lost in the transfer here.

You might want to look into a company who does a lot of voice recognition. Ask here and I'm sure you will get some respones. Another avenue might be QA.

Good luck with your future bundle of joy!
search on the Main Board
yeah, by about 12 of us from the main board. nm
Oops...the are actually on the main board. nm
I posted on the main board also - sm

I've worked with MedQuist, Keystrokes, Lee Perfect, AAA Transcription, You See Solutions, using a multitude of platforms - Scribes, Word, WP, Emdat Inscribe, etc.  I've worked as an IC and employee.  I've used 65 character and gross lines.  I worked in the heyday as did many when you could easily get 12 cpl as an IC and employee, but the facts are the facts.  I know earn 9 to 10 cpl, character line since that seems to be the most prevailant.  I do not like it, but I do it. I've left companies because of crappy platforms (at least in my opinion - others loe them) or issues with being paid.  My time is valuable and I will hunt down and find the place that I can make the most.  It's time consuming but worth it in the end when you find your niche.  It can be frustrating and rewarding in the end.   I've earned anywhere from $25 to $50 an hour depending on account, platform, line counting, etc.  I'm currently making $30 an hour with a 65 character coiunt and 9.5 cpl. 

Just like with every career option there are some who are just better at the job than others.  That does not not mean that those who struggle are bad, but someone else can do better and that is not a bad thing either. 

Maybe some people are not truly cut out for  the job even if they truly want it.  Some have higher expectations than others and will never attain the high hourly average.  Some are happy just making $15 an hour.  Everyone has their own needs and expectations.

I do not see why anyone cannot make close to $25 an hour doing this job.  I've been doing it for 20 years - acute care, clinic work, high ESL, etc.  and I've always managed to make $25 an hour or more.  I do not even like the job anymore, but I'm good at it and I make a really good buck doing it.  When I finish my schooling for my next career choice, something I love to do, I'll leave the field knowing full well I will not make near the money I made at MT for quite sometime. 

If you are doing Acute Care with high ESL, maybe you need to switch to something else.  Regardless, the work is out there - you may have to look for it, but if I cannot average $25 an hour, then I do not want the work and I'll look  elsewhere until I find the right fit.  I've  had to do it before when a company changed platforms, but I eventually found something else and moved on.  My time is precious and I'm greedy. 

I posted this on the main board as well, but --
take note. There is an error in the above mentioned link. There is a space between con and gress. I had to remove that space in order to get to the site. congress should be all one word, not con gress. just saying. thanks
I have yet to find this on the main board or
any other board I've looked at?
Why do my posts on the main board keep getting deleted?
All I asked was if there is a company out there with a platform like Precyse - where you can look up the old reports by doctor, or by patient.  What is so wrong with that? 
see same topic info on Main Board
I posted a response on the main board to you
Please read it! Big difference between identify theft from resumes and PHISHING for info to possibly commit identify theft. If you read the article, it says they take the info from the resumes and send PHISHING emails out to people to get more information to commit the crimes, they cannot just commit the crimes with the general info alone that is in the resumes. Obviously, you should never click a link in an email unless you're completely sure who it is from and should never just give your SS# and bank/cc account information out to someone.
Oops, thought I was on Main Board.
Arrr, could a mod move these to the main board?

Sorry, I have been up since 3 and am obviously having the fumbles!

thought you might be interested in this, taken from the main board
It is a horrible story that is becoming almost the norm...

I was told today by a national transcription company that due to my lack of experience in the last eight years.... that I was unqualified to work for them as they need people with recent acute care status. I have worked for a group of orthopaedic surgeons for eight years and went to work for them because my job at the hospital was phased out due to outsourcing. I have 36 years of experience as a Transcriptionist and all but the last eight were in a hospital setting. I am shocked to find out that I do not qualify for their company. The work at our clinic is dwindling and even though they are hiring three new docs this coming year, none of them are going to be allowed to dictate as they will be required to use the EMR only. All of us sit by our desks waiting for that next job to show up and hopefully if you are lucky enough, you are the one who grabs it first. I used to work every evening and weekend. That has happened in the last five months. Sorry for the venting. It has been a tough struggle with a laid...
It was on the Main Board earlier this morning but
was apparently deleted. 
She posted on the main board as well - ridiculous
The main board is totally crazy and out of control.
I totally agree!
I see it on the Main board. Refresh your browser and you'll see it.
We just covered this on the main board - probably a scam company -sm
In the past I have seen their ads (in every state) saying you can make mega $$$. However it is believed that they are XXXXX under a new name in order to get new victims. The company itself is actually in XXXXX, they say you have to buy the software they use $400 from another company (which they own too but have it hidden well). They then string you along with tests and practice dictation (which I suspect is real dictation) but you never get paid as you have passed the test, nor will you ever be quite good enough to pass. I know a few people that have done it, get strung along for 6 months or more then finally give up, eating the $400. So make a fuss and get their money back, reporting them to the BBB. As for no info, that is not good, if no phone number or address, or they make you buy stuff, steer clear.
BEWARE...note my thread on main board
How long have you been with said company??
Untrue. You posted a couple times on the Main board.
This looks like exactly the same thing you put there. What, you didn't insult enough people there? Come over to the company board to try to hurt more people who are worried about their incomes? Sick stuff. Get some help.
If anyone works inhouse in the Atlanta area, pls see question on Main Board. Thanks. nm

there are a couple of recent posts on the main board, bout halfway down...
Also check the archives, you could do much better for yourself...
geesh, I thought the main board hosted the nasty trolls
I think someone on the Main Board had this problem a short time ago. Maybe a search there will show
A search of the Main Board will show salaries discussed svl times over. Majority of us are paid
