All I know is that they send work overseas. nm
even if they send work overseas...
Please help me find a company to work for that has WORK and pays on time. That is all I ask at this point.
I really wonder how much cheaper it is to send work overseas. When you
think about it, IC here gets about 4 cpl for VR and about 8 or 9 for straight typing.  Overseas they have to go through a middle man or whoever owns the services and you cant tell me they arent getting a decent cut of the cpl and paying 3 cpl or so to their people.  Just my thoughts.  I bet the cost is very close anymore to what we earn.  I see Delta is bringing its reservation call service back here from India because of all the complaints from US customers. I would expect it is the benefits here for employees that causes a problem costwise for MTs.
I have no respect for companies that send work overseas
Don't you think we have enough people right here in the US without jobs? Instead of paying a decent wage for an MT, companies get greedy and undercut our workforce of extremely talented and hard working MTs of which a large percentage are single moms.
Yes they do send work overseas and do not hide this fact. There is plenty of work and they do pay
well. Overall, I like having work as I have been at places where you had to fight to keep busy so this works for me.
Why move all the work for Heartland overseas, are the MTs overseas that much better?
Why? Why do this.  It is my understanding that in time that work will be coming right back.  Are the overseas MT's in Banglador or wherever better.  Don't the companies that offshore worry about the quality of the work, HIPPA issues, patient's confidentiality, etc.  Why don't they care?  Mark my words, those MT's are not better than us, they have US editors, etc to help them out.  They cannot land a new account US-based and compete with any US mt's.  What a  sad day.  I pray for all the Heartland MTs.
How much work is still going overseas. Anyone know.
overseas work
I agree - these companies and hospitals supporting to send work overseas make it sound so wonderful - cheaper rates and fast TAT.   BUT have you ever read some of the work that domestic/US MTs and QAs have to repair?   So the hospital gets a break on the costs from the MT Companies but who has to fix the mess?   I frankly do not want my medical records going off to India to be incorrect when it comes back.   I remember one in particular where the overseas MT put PORN instead of PRN.  How would that patient like to see that in their record?    I hope the new administration imposes fines to heavily that it will stop these companies from supporting overseas companies and give the work back to the US MTs - we need jobs here too and we should be taking care of us first !   Remember those cheap rates - you get what you pay for !  I remember getting a good salary and even Christmas bonuses 10 years ago but those days are LONG gone now.  

Merry Christmas to all and let's hope the New Year brings much happiness with jobs and decent wages.
I know, I know Medquist sends work overseas....but there is always work :)
Business Acquisitions and Overseas Work
When you are trying to be one of the top 3 International MTSO's you buy every company that you can buy that makes sense financially after due diligence has taken place. Believe me - if a purchase is in the works, you won't hear any corporate announcement until the ink is dry on the paper (or the paper is torn up), which will be way after the word is leaked to the street. If SPI is trying to acquire other MTSO's to get into the ring with the big boys - so be it. There isn't anything any one of you can do about it except keep your head down and your line counts and quality up. Quit fretting that your work is going overseas. Transcription is going global. It's a fact, not a fear. A great MT is a great MT wherever his/her chair happens to be.
Precyse QA does not edit the overseas work. QA


I'd bet my boots it's work that is going overseas to India or Pakistan. nm
I would agree. Another case for sending work overseas (sm)
Those MTs work their schedules. Ask any MTSO or management of a national transcription company, and you'll find out it's like pulling teeth to get MTs with good work ethic to actually work the hours they are contracted to work. This is another reason that overseas transcription is used.

You may not believe me, but this *is* a growing trend in the MT industry. MTs that are both skilled and have a good work ethic are a rare find. I don't understand why - perhaps it is so many new MTs expecting working at home to be a walk in the park. I've definitely seen a downward spiral in the past 10 years.
sad part is, those decent docs likely have no idea their work is being sent overseas. nm
Such a lame excuse too - I'm so sure the CLIENT ASKED to have their work outsourced overseas!
They do think we're idiots, don't they?
There is NO work at Transtech. Maybe they just choose special people to send work to
if they send work to someone who
offshores then quite simply they offshore
I work there, but cannot send an email.
How can I help you
I just called them. They are in NY but send 100% of the work
out of the country. No thank you.
does not send work offshore
MedScript Services in Florida
Does OSI send work offshore?

If so I won't bother.  TIA

Who is LK -- know TT did send some work to another service, but

but please let me know what you are saying because we TT'ers are very interested in what you are saying to us all -- I just know there is something very wrong with my line count.  I have been doing this too long to not know how many lines I can get.  I cannot put my finger on the problem -- I just know it does fall in my lap. 

This is really disturbing to me.

They do not send work to Focus...sm
or get work from Focus. Please get your facts straight before making up stuff on these boards. If you think you can prove otherwise send me your information.
She's right TT does NOT send work offshore.
Never have and never will.  The day they do is the day I quit because I never have worked for a company that offshored and I never will. 
OSI does send offshore work
do they send escription work to
or just beyondtxt work to india? I have been on escription.. my last paycheck is barely 300 bucks (due tomorrow) as there was NEVER any work on the accounts i had
Yes they do send work to India
I know because they told someone I know who is a facility that they would if they wanted their work sent over there.
Do they send work offshore?
Just wondering.
You send the work in using their program, yes. I never ran out of work sm

but I was just working part-time, and this was about a year ago, so things could have changed.  Isabelle and everyone seem so caring, it is hard to believe that they would consistently have MTs without work, but that seems to be a curse of the industry lately.

Good luck to you!

I wonder why they don't send a lot or all of their work to India? That's where a lot of work&
Ditto! Also add that they ignore e-mails you send and send endless IMs!
Yes that is the company MQ uses to send work to India.
Batch receive/send work?
Is there any company out there where you can download work in batches and send back transcribed reports in batches?  I can only get dialup and it is too slow to do 1-3 jobs at a time.  30+ years experience, big 4 and Radiology, Medical and Radiation Oncology.  I am currently employed in hospital radiology department but want to go back home.  Hate this winter driving!!!
Which nationals do not send work out of the country?

Which nationals do not send work out of the country? I need to find another job.


Does anybody work for SmartMed/TSI? When do they send out pay checks? TIA. nm
Keystrokes is and will not send work out of the country. sm
The owners feel strongly about that.
Webmedx does NOT send work to India.
They don't send work to anyone. Period. You can take that to the bank.
Transcend most certainly does send work to India.
And they are proud to have these partners
They send our American work to the Philippines,
Philippines you would not be allowed to work.  Americans cannot get jobs in the Philippines because they are saving them all for the Filipinos - don't know if we'd want them anyway but that is beside the point.  Doesn't seem fair, does it, that they can take our work away from us and we get nothing in return.
Does Transtech send work to India? nm
Not hiring because they send most their work to India
Wbx doesn't even send work offshore. nm
Anyone know anything about Cbay at all in Maryland. Do they only send their work to India.
TransHealth does not send work offshore. Hires only US MTs. nm
None of the ones on the Job Seekers board send work outside the country. They
would not be allowed to advertise if they did.
guess again, i'm inhouse and my sup would rather send out work to the agency
yep, to meet the TAT she will send it out, even if it means no work for the real hospital employees.
Anyone work for Excel Transcription out of IL - send me an e-mail nm
I wonder if they hire US MTs on new accounts and then get rid of them and send the work to India
after it goes through SR or something and the system learns from the US MTs.
Are there any companies left who don't send work offshore?
