At Diskriter, that hospital system in Florida that they do .... SM

is anyone familiar with it?  There seems to be a lot of turnover - do you think it's because of bad dictators, bad sound, or what?? 

Florida Hospital Diskriter Position sm

I have been looking through the archives..  I was interested in applying to the Diskriter Florida hospital position but I had heard that you had to take a drug test, credit check, criminal background check and a pre-employment physical.

Is that true?  Especially about the preemployment physical.  I just find that completely weird.. 

info on Florida hospital acct with Diskriter

Does anyone have any info on this acct with Diskriter where you are an actual hospital employee with hospital benefits??


It is weird. I worked for the Florida Hospital thru Diskriter.... SM

back in 2005 when Diskriter first landed the gig.  I had to take a drug test, see my personal doctor for a physical and have him fill a very long and involved form, and get a TB test all for a facility I would never set foot in!  It took three long weeks for me to get through all the red tape and actually start the job.

The work was okay, but it ran out and you had no secondary account because you were employed by the hospital.  So if you wanted a backup account, then you had to go through more red tape to actually be an employee of Diskriter too and there was a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo that came with that because Diskriter was managing the transcription department for this hospital and the hospital had a contract that said that Diskriter could not put the hospital's employees on Diskriter accounts without express consent from the hospital. 

The supervisor of the hospital employees was employed by Diskriter and was incompetent.  We weren't able to get sample reports, normals, etc. out of her.  We always got the standard I'll look into that or It's in the works.  It seemed she had no contact with the hospital HIM department at all.  However, they could have a new person in that position now.  Like I said it was all brand spanking new back then.

Oh and your benefits were out of Florida.  So unless you're planning on flying into Florida to see a doctor or have an operation, you're basically screwed.  The bennies may have changed too by now though -- so who knows.

After three months, I just decided it was all just too much and left.  All the hoops I jumped through to get the job and then to have the job be such a disappointment was just irritating!

Diskriter off off offshores - and on some hospital accounts - they have not informed the hospital
Shands Hospital Florida
Anyone currently  work for them (or recently quit within the last year or so) and willing to tell me about the experience?  TIA
cannot speak for Diskriter, but do know there are many ESL doctors in Florida.
So does anyone work on the acct that DiskRiter is hiring for now? It's in Florida
It does not say ALL. It says employees pay. Just like in a hospital.
My husband is a firefighter and he has to pay. I worked in four hospitals and always had to pay. It does not say how much, just that it is offered but not 100% covered.

diskriter employees - sm
anything for MT week??? Just curious - I didn't, but I see that they gave out an American Express gift cheque as a prize. 
Any Diskriter employees out there?
I see some old post 2004 on this company but does anyone work with or have any bad or good experiences they wish to share.  They have posted a weekend shift I'm curious about.  Can email if you wish. Thanks in advance.
Diskriter employees?
Save yourself time, ask if there are any EX-Diskriter employees out there, you will get more answers, faster!!
Even Diskriter employees have to
have the drug test, background check, etc. Not just the employees they hire for the hospital.
Diskriter Hospital
I was considering working for Diskriter on the hospital account in Florida.  There are lots of comments in the archives, but I was wondering if anybody has recent experience with the account manager and that account.  It seems like a revolving door, and I want to avoid becoming part of that action.  I want the hospital work and insurance, but is it flexible enough? Do they train well? How's the pay? Would my boss be available to me?  Any advice would be appreciated.  I am deciding between them and TransTech. Thanks
Current employees of Diskriter


Can people who currently work for Diskriter email me?  I was offered a position there yesterday and want to talk to someone who is there now and can offer some insight on this.  Thanks in advance.

Current Diskriter employees


I am looking to chat with people who currently work at Diskriter.  I have seen a lot about this company good and bad and want to talk with someone who works there at the present time. 

Diskriter used to have something in place like this, too, regarding NY employees. Had to
Any DiskRiter employees on M-Modal yet?

Anybody switched over to this platform yet?  How is it?

Are there any current Diskriter Employees here?
I would like to hear from anyone currently working for Diskriter. I am not interested in hearing from former employees at this time as I have read the archives, which is why I would like to hear opinions from current employees or recent new hires only. Thanks!
Any Diskriter employees out there? You happy with them? nm

Any info from an insider appreciated.  Thanks.

Diskriter versus hospital
There is a BIG difference between working for Diskriter and working for a hospital through Diskriter.  I've done both and there's no comparison.
Anyone had experience with Diskriter hospital sm

employee status positions?   Sounds really tempting. 


Diskriter hospital employee
Is there anyone working on the hospital accounts through DR? I would like more information from those that are currently working or have previously worked on the hospital side. Good, bad, and ugly. Thanks!

Diskriter hospital employee
I wanted to post this again as nobody responded to my previous post. Does anyone work as a hospital employee through Diskriter? If you are currently working for Diskriter at all, could you give me some insight on the company and benefits from your perspective? Thanks!
To be a hospital employee (Diskriter), do you have
They do hire people as hospital employees, but
it's not the great situation it's cracked up to be. The hospital complains about everything possible to the account manager, who gets nervous about losing the account and it's all downhill from there.

It's too bad because it's a great idea in theory. Unfortunately it's human nature to pass the buck and place blame on those at the bottom of the totem pole, so that leaves the nameless faceless MT's on a daily roller coaster of paranoia and hysteria.
Any Diskriter employees live in California?
Diskriter versus hospital accounts

Did they explain the Diskriter versus hospital status to you when you spoke with them?  I'm a little confused about that from the above posters.  Thanks!

Diskriter-Hospital Employee Status

I've recently accepted a hospital employee status position with Diskriter.  Is there anyone else out there that works one of these positions that would be willing to network with me?

Re Diskriter, anyone work for the PA teaching hospital they have? SM
If so, can you post your opinion here?  Or you may email me if you'd like.  Thanks.
Diskriter MTs, is hospital account or DR accounts a
anyone work as hospital employee for/through Diskriter?
Was wondering how that works out, if that setup is better than working for a service. Better benefits, workload?
Hope they're already told the employees at the hospital that they are out of a job. I don't t
they should post specifics like this.
If the hospital employees know, then the company knows. Keep your mouth shut and get out.
Diskriter--Anyone know if they have decent insurance rates for their employees??
Any help is appreciated.
Any companies out there that offer the hospital benefits besides Diskriter
I currently work in-house a hospital but they do not have at-work positions and I would like ot work at home so I wondered if there were other companies and/hospitals that hire at-home MTs with full benefits....besides Diskriter as I have not heard a lot of good news about them and it makes me nervous to apply.

The benefits look fabulous! Strict schedule? Good PTO?

I'm a new hospital employee through Diskriter and you are correct. Ins kicks in 1st month after h
You cant beat the benefits and that is why I chose hospital. You get PTO, holiday pay, downtime pay, and sick time. The insurance is one of the best out there.
Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Center City Phila uses Diskriter
Why so very few comments regarding Diskriter? Are comments by employees not permitted SM
on public forums. I have always been interested to see comments on this company, as they are constantly advertising and seem to have an attractive employee package. Unfortunately, never seeing comments on MT boards makes me extremely uneasy. I'm sure they could have stipulations in their contracts that prevent them from commenting, but even so I would expect to see good or bad comments even from ex-employees. Hmmm? Plus, if the anonymity is supposed to be in place on these boards, how can it hurt for employees to make a general comment, good or bad?
Diskriter - Anyone go from their employee to hospital employee with them?
Thinking about giving up on being their employee and applying for a hospital employee position through them, they have one in PA right now that looks good.  How is it for scheduling?  Do you keep your line rate or get whatever the hospital pays? Who manages those accounts, is it the same PM and DR that are on the other ones?  I have DR and feel like she doesn't have a clue what she is doing and it is so annoying, but I just don't have the guts to let the company know she needs to step it up a notch because the transcriptionists are not happy under her.  Are QA the same people or through the hospital.  They have 1 QA that is constantly asking us questions on doctors and format, things we should be asking that QA person.  Annoying that new people move up to QA but people who've been there 2 or 3 years get treated like dirt and jumped account to account.
Jewish is the main hospital, St. Mary's is another hospital under their management. (nm)
Oh for sure employees, but not too often for statutory employees. Sorry for confusion.
Attn: Any Transcend employees or former employees
I have been offered a job with Transcend, but I am not completely sure about it yet and I need some input from you guys.  I have read positives and negatives regarding this company but alot of it was pretty old information.  Can anyone give me some recent feedback on them?    Thanks very much!!!
First for hospital, then outsourced still on same hospital work
and believe it or not, the hospital was so much easier. Had worked at the hospital for 11 years before they outsourced and then worked another 3+ years for the company they outsourced to. What a difference! The company had so many rules and regulations you could hardly keep up with them all, thousands of them, on the same account, mind you. The higher ups would not leave you alone, constant IMs about any and all. I have gotten to the age where I do not need all that and walked the other week. Have scheduled testing with another hospital for this month. Hope I make the cut, love the hospital work 1000 times more than a company.
They have IC and employees, employees get benefits.
Good company. I am very happy there.
Does anyone like it at Precyse? New employees? old employees? nm
MDI in Florida
Thank you.
This is MDI Florida
MDI - Florida
Is MDI really that bad of a company to work for? I have seen mostly negative posts about them here. Do they offer the same benefits as Trascend....like production incentives, etc??? I always see job listings for them and have thought about applying but after reading through the posts, I am not so sure. Any info you have would be very helpful in my decision. javascript:editor_insertHTML('text','');
Try MDI Florida
I work on eScription now for MDI, great accounts, need help right now in a big way. I love it, and the money is good. I happen to work on 2nd shift and could use some team mates to help me out. If you like eScription, this is a great job.
