when a company offshores - sm
they tend to send most of the work offshore because the company makes more money for their pockets. They use the American side just for the minimum amount of work necessary for the client and also to "offset" the client figuring out a lot of times that it is being offshored. Diskriter does this also. they will use both American and Indian and charge the client the same rate and hope that the client doesn't catch on.
Any company that offshores, lies about it like they did and then
gets caught is an unethical company.  I don't care if they pay better, no ESL, etc.   If you want to work for a company like that more power to you.     My ethics won't let me work for a company like that. 
Will never work for a company who offshores
And I bet I won't have to eat my words.
Just found out my company offshores,
I used to work for a company that offshores -doesn't mean I do now (sm)

Do I sense some some sour grapes here? 

Contact company
at staylor@milnervoice.com
Had a company contact me that uses Meditech for RAD.
It's been a heck of a long time since I used Meditech, and it was the old DOS version.  Anyone making money using it?
Maybe it is an Indian company with a US contact
I work for an all-US company and refuse to work for one that offshores. Best of luck to you. nm
Unfamiliar with this company. Do they have contact information??
Website, email, etc...
The company does if you contact them about the job. I like to inquire before writing things off nm

at first impressions. 

Anyone sight impaired working for a caring company? Please contact
Well just imagine being even happier when you contact the company to follow up, and guess what? sm
You actually get the job because you show an avid interest in a job with the company.  On the other hand, you could be just happy to know that you passed the test. 
I've been with the company almost 10 years. I know the truth. Hawaii was a company-paid vacation.
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
Everyone should contact this company because they must the the best company ever

Apparently, I was one of the lucky ones who passed the Medgarde's transcription test. I received a call from the recruiter that told me I should be so lucky because the waiting list for their company is long and her calendar was booked for an official interview until two weeks from now.  At that time, they would have verified the MT school I listed I graduated from and have investigated me.  Also, when my two weeks come up, I would be given an hour long interview, 1/2 hour of the test would be general questions regarding things such as my computer and the next portion would be more indepth about medical termionology and transcribing.  Last, but not least, the recruiter told me I was lucky to get a call because most do not make it thus far.  Well, should I be waiting with bated breath for my interview in two weeks.

I've heard that about this company.....sm
it's too bad that they require new hires to work one weekend day, otherwise I'd be applying with them.
Here's a company I've never heard of ...

This is a company that seems to be hiring.  I believe they are in Virginia.  I know nothing; just stumbled across their website and thought they looked interesting. 


Best company I've worked for. sm
The pay is a little low but it's worth it for good accounts and great management, not to mention the good benefits.
I've never heard of this company.
Maybe their transcriptionists don't frequent this board.
I've never worked for such a good company
I was contacted immediately after I tested. I wanted part-time work at night to try them out, so I worked 20 hours a week for them. After a month, I quit my other full-time job and went with them full-time. I've never seen such a fast platform. The benefits are incredible compared to other companies and the work is excellent. Good communication and accessability with co-workers and supervisors. Extra bonuses for what we had to do normally at other jobs. Direct deposit. company contributions to 401K. Earn vacation money from your first day on the job, and you don't lose it when/if you leave. I'm extremely happy with them.
I've been with this company longer than any other national -sm

I think that says a lot in itself.  I've also worked for Edix in the past and Medware.  In comparing Precyse to those 2 companies, I feel it's better than Edix was because you do get paid for headings in the report, and you don't have to fish around for those headings either.  (I thought that was such a waste of my time as well as an insult to my intelligence.)  Of course, there's an upgrade coming up at Precyse, and I'll be sure to let everybody know if anything changes with that.  I'm not on it yet, so I can't say. 


And Medware, well, I'll just say that's probably a great company for people that don't have that much good experience, because otherwise they waste your time with a lot of things like that list of questions to answer and they send excessive QA feedback (very nitpicky feedback if you ask me) which Precyse doesn't do too much of.  (Of course, they do send feedback though, don't get me wrong.)  MW also forced me to work on too many different accounts on the weekend.  Their way of catching up I guess, but not a good idea for anybody, quality and production-wise.  So, if you've got a lot of good experience, really do work well independently, and don't mind having a few accounts, Precyse is a great place to be. 


They pay on time and correctly.  They offer some really good benefits.  The PTO you're allowed to use right off the bat and you'd be surprised how fast it adds up.  You can use that PTO any time with no questions asked, even if you didn't take any time off.  I don't think it's unreasonable for them to ask for you to pick a schedule and adhere to it either.  No professional should have a problem with that.  I should mention you do need to type at least 5000 lines per week to keep full-time status and benefits.  Of course they give a reasonable time when you're new to work up to that as well as if you start a new account. They really prefer 6000 which gets you a bonus.


Good luck to you with whatever you decide.  And remember, if you don't like your supervisor, account or schedule, try asking for a change.

I've been there for 3 years - yes, good company
I've been there a few years. I think it's a good company.
Although I feel that ALL MT pay is far too low, Acusis pays better than most. Several accounts are teaching hospitals, some regular hospitals, and some clinics. Most of the time they have plenty of work, except right after the Holidays.

I find the management to be VERY nice to work with - a welcome change from my old situation, which was horrible. Excellent techs, too. The SoftScript platform they use works well. Sound quality is good. If you email a supervisor or other person there, I've found they respond in a timely manner.

The pay varies based on the account; more for harder ones, less for easy ones. They ask for feedback from MTs, and are appreciative to get it.

Anyway, judging by what I read on this board about other companies, I think one reason you don't hear much about Acusis is that most people that work for them are happy with them.
Why not call them and ask? I've been with them for 2 years and love it. Best company
I have ever worked for.  There is always plenty of work, pay is decent and on time, and best of all I am treated well.  They offer all kinds of bonuses, continuing education pay, vacation pay, reasonable insurance through Aetna, life insurance.  Am I getting rich off this?  No.  Am I paid reasonably well?  Yes.  Would I recommend Transtech?  Absolutely!
QT Medical is an awsome company and seems to be what you're looking for, from what you've said
Possibly a new Indian company. They've never been mentioned here before. nm
EMTS is a wonderful caring company - I've been
there over 2 years and I will have to be chased away with a stick. This company is SOOOOO kind to their employees ... seriously caring people. You can't work for a better bunch. That is my .02
I've never clocked in/out, great company to work for.
What is your favorite company you've worked for in the past??
I'm just curious if anyone has a favorite company that they've worked for and why are they your favorite?
I've been trying to find a company with steady work
I've only been with present company for months and don't have counts where I'd like, otherw
Disagree with this. Every company I've worked for paid for normals.
OSI offshores - sm
That's old news, they have been doing it for a while. They got caught at it over a year ago, but no telling how long they were doing it before the news leaked accidentally. They then had to own up to it on the OSi homepage for employees.
No one really knows who offshores
Why do you think there was a post stating that management knew weeks before this DRC take-over and conference call?  It could be in the works no matter company you work for as far as I'm concerned.  As far as saying I won't work for a company that offshores, well that to me, is like saying I am giving up on my profession.  The ones that won't work for offshoring companies are giving them the satisfaction of the take-over and offshoring.  In other words, you are prejudiced, against anyone transcribing other than a born in America MT.  Has it ever occurred to anyone on here that there may be American transcriptionists who are originally from India or China?  Come on this is 2007.  Get with the times!  Do you only buy American made products?  Bet not.  Okay, I feel better now.        
OSI offshores.....
Definitely offshores
All Type...definitely, definitely
I don't know if TRS currently offshores, but they
have been training women in the Trinidad and Tobago (I think) for several years.  If there were a need for transcribed MR a US company would not need to train them, and why train them if they aren't going to have any work.  Get the picture. 
to India. They joined up with Healthscribe a few years back and are using the Healthscribe office in India for transcription. I know for a fact that they are about to lose a major major account in California because they did not inform the hospital that they were offshoring the work and crap hit the fan!
...but tries to keep it quiet and asks the American MTs to do the Indian's editing...
Precyse offshores.
no message.
OSI offshores. Someone that posts
here often (can't remember name) works for DR and she says the pay is low, but the platform is easy and she can make her lines very easily.   If your friend was constantly running out of work, etc. that would be enough for me to stay away. 
CyMed offshores, pay so-so, don't know about other.
Medware offshores
You get the leftovers. Between Thanksgiving and New years, the server was done daily, frequently several times a day. ..Their sweet little *team leaders* don't spend well at the gas station or the grocery store.

Good luck with this company. Their work is NOT consistent, there was no incentive pay worth mentioning, and they really don't care about quality - just get those lines out.
Diskriter offshores
Turned them down.
Yes, Transcend offshores a lot
Someone had the article and posted it here a few months ago.
Focus offshores
Sorry to say your information is incorrect. As a matter of fact, there is a hospital that will be completely offshored by the middle of July. I had been working on it for over a year before getting this news last month.
Spheris offshores too nm
Transform offshores

Worked for him for 3+ years.  He does offshore.  Be careful about linecount, espcilally spaces. My linecount was  off  and when I called his hand on it it, he hand-counted it and it was off.  He               owed be $1759

We band together and start our own company offering our services to the hospitals we've been work

on already and take our accounts back from Transcend.  I haven't signed any noncompete contract with Transcend.  Would the MDI one be null and void? If my pay rate is null and void, so must my noncompete.  They can't have it both ways.
