They used to offshore to Trinidad so it could be. nm

Do you have proof that JLG outsources offshore? If so, please email the Administrator.
does Amphion advertise that they now offshore?

Yes, they are in Trinidad.
They are training people in Trinidad. A Transcriptionist started that company and now that she is no longer with us, her husband has rationalized the decision even though they used to say they would never send work offshore. I had actually quit a decent job to go there and then the Trinidad thing blew open.
Work now going to Trinidad SM

A certain company is advertising for people to go to Trinidad and train new MTs. 

Haven't we lost enough freakin work!

Work has been going to Trinidad for years, actually, but not a lot of it from what I can tell. A QA
yep - Trinidad is doing MT work for USA today....

No sour grapes. They DO outsource to Trinidad. Openly on the net. Research it and you will see.
Do you know if DTS outsources?
Yes, DTS outsources a LOT. NM
Thanks. Do you know if TT outsources overseas?
OSi outsources, pay is never on time
and don't go there. Good luck.
spheris outsources also nm..


I agree 100%. Wonder if she outsources her

What a horrible American attitude to have. Perfect sample of why we are all going downhill in a handbasket.

Anyone know if Axolotl outsources? nm
SPI outsources and Medical Bazaar does too. nm
Does anyone know of DocuMed outsources overseas? nm
I believe I believe Cymed outsources overseas also...sm
Unfortunately, we are going to continue to be in this same boat as long as medical transcription is outsourced to overseas countries. I used to think it wasn't a big deal (outsourcing), but I can see now that our jobs (and pay) are going to continue to deteriorate as long as outsourcing overseas is in the picture....and it is going to be in the picture for a very, very long time. :-(
It's never been a secret that Transcend outsources.
They are very proud of their overseas partners as they call them. The only reason the work is more steady and not all going there is that a lot of their hospital contracts state that they cannot outsource their work. So I applaud those hospitals because without them taking a stand, we'd be having no work..again. I remember waking up in the morning and finding there is no work and this is because the Indians are opposite us. When it's night for them it is day for us. So technically while we slept, they worked and when we got up, there was nothing left. It still happens on occasions but we have gotten a few new accounts so that helps. Also, whenever they ran out of work, people would quit and that would leave more work for whoever was left. It's just the nature of the business I guess. I've gone elsewhere.
So your saying you're a Bush follower since QT outsources? nm
Do you happen to know which companies HUP outsources to other than MQ. I suppose the best thing
would be to call HR but will they give out this information. Not sure who to call at these hospitals.
Every American MT should boycott working for any company that outsources! n/m
Sheeple!!! LOL - I agree. I wonder if Germany outsources it citizens work out of the country.
how horrible but Acusis/DRC outsources to India, just what Spheris will do with that easy account. n
Current Amphion employee...I'm very happy. The part of Amphion I work with has no faxes, lists,s
minor demographic work..superb QA and feedback.  Fellow MTs on same account are more than willing to help and now they also have mentor program.  My pay is what they said.  They do have different pay for different levels. 
offshore overseas.... not outsource .... correct term is offshore.
This seems to be pro-offshore board. Messages against offshore often just disappear.
offshore to India, it's OFFSHORE (off shore), not outsource to India.
The offshore...
but that's to cover third shift. They have no intention of replacing their whole staff with offshore workers. There are things I don't like about the company but I believe them when they say that. They've been offshoring for years and have plenty of work for those who want to work in the US.
Offshore, offshore, offshore.
Do you me offshore

Outsource is what hospital do when they send their dictation to a company such as Transcend or OSI.

Offshoring is when they send their dictation to overseas transcriptionists.  It is easy to confuse the two.

offshore definitely nm
They offshore, top pay is around 8.5 cpl.
There have been several complaints the last couple of weeks about lack of work.  Benefits are good.   Don't know about platform.   Check archives, lots about them lately. 

Diskriter and OSi also offshore. 

Rather than have new posters search through tons of archives for answers to this question, maybe a list should be made of all companies that do offshore and posted permanently on the board, with revisions made as new ones come up.  Just a suggestion...please no flames!


Yes, they offshore.
They have a facility in India. The fact that they offshore is all over this board. They have purchased several companies. I do not know if one of them is in New Jersey.
Did he tell you they offshore? nm
They offshore.
They both offshore
They use offshore. sm

I saw this on their website under hospital solutions:


We offer a choice of Domestic or Philippine based medical transcription services with U.S based Quality Assurance specialists, and 24-hour or STAT file turnaround.

They offshore too.
It's offshore
I never thought the academic and research would go offshore too, but I was wrong.
With a pay cut like that...they might as well offshore.
Offshore sm
Medware, Focus Infomatics and OSI send work offshore.  Don't know about the other one.
and it's no wonder MT is going offshore with
makes an MT work under these conditions!
They offshore. Very low pay.
I think you mean that they offshore.
They offshore. They don't pay very well.
They've changed the way they pay recently, which I think is a bit strange, but seems an attempt to make it seem like you are making more than you are. 
No but they do offshore
They finally admitted it after denying it for years. I am looking for another job for a lot of reasons. One reason is the extra work without pay, and they do offshore on one of my accounts so I have to hop around to find work to do. I am tired of it. The other poster is correct-- they do not seem to care about the MTs.
Yes they do offshore
Yes, they offshore
They offshore, pay low.
I think two people who work there speak English.
