Data-Med, any info appreciated
I tried a search for them and came up with zippo.  I found it strange however, that from the job seeker's board - and they have 2 ads up there, 1 for neuro/pain management and 1 for insurance interviews.  On one of those ads (forget which) it says for more details  1 will take you to a data-med nonmedical position listed in the career center - the other 1 will take you to a MT job posted under clinics (I think) for Focusmatics.  I wonder if they just made a mistake or if they are Focusmatics. 
What platform(s) do they use? Any info appreciated.

Christmas gift appreciated, but turns out not to be a gift if there is no work the day after

Christmas Day.  Yes, it was $25.00 (twenty-five).  I lost that much this morning when there was NO WORK.  I had so hoped to have a good paycheck this pay period, and was working very hard to have one -- as I need the money SO BAD.

I was appreciative of the $25, rather than some kind of novelty advertising token with company logo on it, like some MTSO's would give to a prospective client, etc.  Oh, yes, I made very good use of the $25.  I took it and paid my high-speed internet bill, a necessary tool for working my job --  which the $25 was very much short of paying that phone charge.

THANK YOU TT for the $25. 


Does anyone know anything about a company called MedGarde? I found them on a Google search and I'm looking for work but I want to know if their a good company to work for. Thanks!

Medgarde. nm

Does anyone know what kind of company MedGarde is like?  I am looking for a more flexible position and heard they were quite flexible.  thanks for any info!
Medgarde is a good company to work for.  You are considered IC.  They don't pay for spaces.  They give you an account and expect you to have all reports done by 8 a.m. EST.  They just want the work in.  You can work any time during the day at your convenience as long as you have all reports downloaded for that account done and sent in by 8 a.m. the next morning.  They pay from 7 to 10 cents a line.  It is up to you how much you want to make.  The pay is on tier-like.  I think anything over 6001 lines is 10 cents a line for that week.  They pay by the week and use PayPal to pay you--always on time.  They also charge you $5 a week to use their software which is WinScribe/Internet Typist, which is an easy platform, typing in MS Word. 

The accounts I worked on were for surgery centers.  I also did psychiatric reports.  Did a lot of ortho reports, ophthalmology, and endoscopy.  They really don't bother you as long as you get the work in on time--very adamant about that or you could be docked.   You are not in a pool.  You get a primary account and backup accounts to learn a set of dictators. 

Turnaround times are:

Monday up to 5 p.m.   due back 8 a.m. Tuesday

Tues up to 5 p.m. due back 8 a.m. Wednesday  and so on until Friday up 5 p.m. due back on Monday by 8 a.m., anytime on Saturday is due back Tuesday at 8 a.m. and Sunday anytime is due back Tuesday by 8 a.m.

Pay scale

0001-2000  at 7 cents a line

2001-4000 at 8 cents a line

4001-6000 at 9 cents a line

6000 or more at 10 cents a line

Payroll is every week. 

All of this is without spaces.  They use line count in MS Word to count divided by 65 without spaces, so you will know exactly what you make for that pay period before it gets to up.  Everyone is IC.  Also, they go strictly by the contract you signed.  Read it carefully because they adhere to it.  I really like them. 

I don't have formal training from an accredited school, but have over 15 years acute experience, and I was hired. APPLY.

Is the voice quality for their work better than that for the exam?

FYI this is an Indian company.

Can someone tell me about medgarde?
I have an interview set up, but I saw in the archives that they don't pay for spaces.  Does anyone know if this is still true?? I also saw that the work is due by 8 am EST, but when is it downloaded?? Thanks to anyone who can help!
Anybody know how long it takes Medgarde to get back to you after testing?  It hasn't been that long...I am just impatient ;)
I thought it was too good to be true to. I was asked to test. I did a search here and found that it's not so good to be true. From what I read, you have to sign an agreement that you'll work for them for a year and if you don't, they don't pay you for your last weeks of work. I also think I remember reading that they don't pay for spaces, and a lot of other hidden things that they don't tell you on the website. Do a search yourself and you'll see what I mean. After I did, I deleted their email.
I have worked for MedGarde as a QA since April and I am very happy with them.  I find their platform easy to use. 
I interviewed with Medgarde almost a year ago. I was told I was a conditional hire but that there weren't any accounts available. Never heard another word until yesterday when they left a message saying they have a position available. I'm hesitant to call them back as I was told you are required to rent their software.
