Depends on your acct - sm

Posted By: HappyWebX2 on 2008-09-15
In Reply to: Does Webmedx has a strict schedule or a window to get work done? - Want some flexibility.

I have 12-hr window to get in 8 hour shift but I know others on accounts that require stricter schedules. Flex hours are pretty much okay here.

That really depends on your acct, even now. nm
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.
I think it depends on your primary acct; sm
I've noticed some STMs give more leeway regarding shift windows, and usually it is based on turnaround time for your particular primary account. I think I would approach my STM again and ask more specifically, Why does STM X say this and you say something else? Probably you would get a clearer answer. It never hurts to ask.
12-hr flex for me too; definitely depends on your acct. sm
Average pay, nice bonus structure, good benefits. I like the platform and the people.
Flexibility depends on your acct; some still sm
allow the 10 or 12 hr flex schedule, some accounts do not. It's worth asking.
depends on acct. Some Lanier, some dictaphone, i.e. Transnet nm
It depends on which account your on. If you WANT to be on an acct with a C-phone, there is plenty
but, if you like, AND were hired for internet-based, you will be disappointed. Just goes to show that there are two sides to everything. Some people love it and some people hate it.. personally, I have chosen to work for a company that everyone is happy being at and you cannot find one single bad post about them. I have figured out.. that is a for a reason. When you see even one bad post, you should at least look into it further. I thought that people who complained were just ex-disgruntled MTs but soon found out for myself what they were trying to say so I say, go ahead and try it out yourself and decide.
Your line rate depends on what acct you are hired for - sm
the difficulty of the acct dictates your line rate; PT vs FT doesn't really matter. Acute care varies from 8-9.5 CPL, plus production (bonus) incentives and shift differential.

When you first start, 100% of your work goes to QA until you are released on that acct. Afterwards it seems to depend on the acct as to how often you are reviewed. 98% or above is required but there is a detailed policy about mentoring, etc, posted for us to review.

Yes, you have access to older reports by doctor or by patient in real-time, as well as samples posted for reference on the community page.

I lost an acct with MQ, called the hospital and they told me who had the acct. I chose not to go wi
Older posts about them have the MTs bouncing from acct to acct and not being able to make
My acct mgr sent an update this morning stating a large acct sm
starting next week; another in 2 more weeks; another in early October; and another in November. This is just a normal end of summer / holiday slowdown. I'm sure other posters on this board are also out of work due to the same circumstances.
Give it a whirl. I WAS on that same acct, same pay. Asked and got put on an acct just as bad, so I
How was your acct at Amphion? I have a HORRIBLE acct...

I am new to Amphion and have this account that has a lot of account specifics, no automatic ADT (which means I have to search for the names, etc) which is not a problem for me, but there is one dictator who is ALWAYS awful, and I have been getting him back to back to back my first week with Amphion.  Did you find that you basically only had 1 or 2 dictators while there or did you have more?  Of course, I would not mind doing him occasionally but can't do this all day.  I will never be able to make any money, especially at the line rate that I am being paid.  I have 2 children of my own and 3 of my sister's children in my care.  I cannot afford to do this everyday and don't know what to do.  I work as an IC for another company making 9 cents a line, which is much more than Amphion, but really wanted employee status so was willing to make a little less, but I am afraid it is not going to work.  I do not want to have to find yet another company and start all over with them to only find out that they suck too.  Any suggestions?

I've easily done 600, but it depends on the way a company counts lines and it depends on the
dictators. Obviously, if you have a good share of ESL, there is no way you could ever do 600 or 700. On really difficult ones, I usually run around 400 lines an hour and I have been working on this platform for 3 years.
VA acct w/ops 9. NM
It is probably true because it is a radiology account.

which acct
which account are you currently working on, or you would say is a bad one. Thanks
What acct
What acct do you work on? If you are on BeyondTxt T mode there is no work. I don't know how you girls who need benefits are paying for them.
Thanks for replying. The problem is I did have my own account and they decided not to pay me for over a month and because I said something about not being paid they took offense. SO what can you do. Its a win-lose situation. Now I just have to hope that the check clears!
KS Onc acct
If you are working on the KS onc acct please email me.
FN New acct
Are we talking about the new acct with the 1 million lines?.  What a joke.  I'm lucky to do 500 lines a day and that is only by working on 3 different accts.  And I found out the new acct will be going to VR, which I don't do.  I'm a transcriptionist, not an editor.
KS acct

Do you know which acct you would be working on?

If it were your acct, you would already know.
They don't keep it a secret. One of mine, large hospital on the East Coast, is leaving today. I've known for at least a month. They chose not to renew their contract with us. It happens.
.06 OB acct
I felt the same way, ladies. In fact, I recently went from a .0725 (knocked down from 0.825) GROSS LINE ACCT to a .06 transcription rate acct with HORRIFIC docs - worst I've had since starting ne.arly 23 years ago. I was offered VR (with even worse docs, so basically re-typing it ALL) for .02 cpl.

I guess you can understand why I'm on the job hunt
Is this a rad acct and do they have openings? (nm)
I loved that acct too....
Typical M-Q then one day it just vanished.
my acct has about 80-90% ESLs
my back up account is worse. 
That seems like it could be true, my acct is So Cal
and most of the patients are not Caucasian or are ethnic (is that PC?), as well as the dictators.
Same here, about 40-50 regular drs on my acct, with
probably 10 of them being so awful, I can hardly attempt them. I'm happy to say that some I hated at first are now ones I enjoy, so hopefully I will keep finding that to be the case. Others though, UGH!
No, DRC is not really "atrocious acct" but... sm
It is NOT easy stuff... My experience has been lots of cutting-edge oncology in all specialties. If you don't know your stuff you'll be researching more than typing. Very few ESLs and, yes, the platform is Word-based, and, no, no need to be a computer wiz--tech support is great at DRC and so is QA support.
Your radiology acct
Are you working certain hours/days/evenings and are you working weekends?  What is holiday pay per report?
Your radiology acct
Do you have a lot of ESL docs?
TT onco acct

Can't you get a backup account?  That's what I did.  They are not all slow at the same time, usually.  I get better count on onco acct than on my other.

Well I was doing VR for an acct at 1.80 report. sm
They cut pay to 3.5 to 5.5 cents per line under the manager I was under. I know a lot of people left. Just curious as to if any are here on this board.
Ortho acct
i have been offered ortho, which i have a great deal of experience. How much would you say per hour you make at 7.5 WI spaces. I really have a lot of quesstions and if possible would like to e-mail you direct. Also can the ShortHand program be used
I know which acct you are talking about but (sm)
trust me (or not) there are TONS of work on others, one I know FOR SURE.  Have you asked for a backup??
what acct?...email me....nm
I always get a mix, no matter which acct I am on.
Just how EZ is it to get off of the DI entry acct

Anyone starting new with KS on hem/onc acct? nm
Did you think to ask about acct specifics?
What you think might look better and what the client requires are two different things.  Often when a client receives expansions that they specifically ask NOT to be done, they go back to the client and yell and in some instances ask for a credit.  The transcription company isn't going to take the chance if the specifics are that rigid.  As for the name of the facility - I'd think you could just ask?
TT will be hiring for new acct soon
I would ask; after all, if they know it is hard to keep someone on the acct sm
it is reasonable to pay someone a little more to do so. Just schedule some time to talk frankly with your boss and say, Look I know you have a hard time, blah blah. All they can say is no.
Yes, someone is either confused abt the acct - b/c that sm
is like a radiology pay rate - or they are confusing with a different company they talked to!
OP says *had an acct* not an employee SM
so what would the labor board or an attorney be able to do?  Nothing.
In other words, LP will bid the acct low SM

and if they do manage to get the account, YOU WILL TAKE A PAY CUT FOR THAT ACCOUNT AND SHE WARNED YOU IT WAS COMING.


How do you tell if acct u do is overflow? nm
Webmedx: How can you tell if acct
main acct is usually enough in my experience, but have others...
Most of the people that I have seen asked off of an acct were not on QA
as they had been taken off a long time ago. QA can only catch what goes through it. Several of the MTs that are on our account do multitudes of work and when you look at what has been sent without blanks, sometimes it is sickening. QA can only correct what is sent to them. Some companies are too fast to take someone off of QA and then those folks speed on through without caring what they send to the hospital. Several have gotten caught at that game and those are the ones who have been asked to be taken off the account. If those had gone through QA it never would have happened. I know our QA staff has requested certain MTs (whose work we have seen in the database) be put back on 100% QA and if the co won't do it, we can't do it. That's how that happens.
You don't want the ESL acct I was on with them. Whoo doggy! Bad...nm
