 Does anyone know of a hospital or clinic in East Tennessee, Knoxville and east, that hires MTs to work at home?? Thanks.

If it's the one out of Tennessee, don't do it..sm
You will not get paid every week as promised.  Constant late payer.
Yes, out of Tennessee
They have been around for a long time based out of Tennessee.
This is the one out of Tennessee..nm
The one in Tennessee....

Do you think 30 minutes of dictation and following a template to a T is a lot for just a test for someone with a lot of experience?

DTS in Tennessee???

I am looking for any current information on this company.  I have an interview this afternoon and was wondering how they are to work for.  I checked the archives but I keep getting some weird message.


If this is the one out of Tennessee ... sm
One of the most DECENT MTSO's out there. True IC. Pay always on time. Fair management, and excellent QA. Pay is a little low, but if you're willing to work hard, then I think you can make up what you lack in line pay through the volume you produce. I loved working there, but the account that I was on wasn't a good fit for me (bad dictators and sound issues). They were more than patient, but my ear just couldn't adjust and they didn't have another account to offer me at that time. I don't think you could go wrong at Medlinks.
SPI Healthcare out of Tennessee. nm
ASAP in Tennessee
Anybody worked relatively recently for these people?  Any info on company, how they pay, etc?
DTS America in Tennessee?
Does anybody have any current information on this company?  I did a search but nothing came up.  TIA!
Anyone work for a company in Tennessee?

Which one and how do you like it?  Are they hiring, if you know?



Is DTS in Oklahoma City and DTS in Tennessee the same? sm
Are the offices ran basically the same or are they two separate companies?  I have seen some positive posts about DTS in Tennessee but I can't find anything about DTS in Oklahoma City.  Thanks in advance. 
I worked for a DocQmed LLC in Tennessee - sm
don't know if that is who you are referring to. In my case I just worked per dium and helped with overflow, etc. I was paid well for it and on time. They only had IC, no benefits from what I can tell of the documents I have, though I could be wrong. They had DD though I don't rememeber if I did that or just got a check, I believe they just mailed me a check though, never a problem though . It has been over a year since I worked for them, and about 11 months since they last called me to work. I was too busy at the time to help, so I guess that is why I have not gotten any more calls.
Eagle's Landing Transcription Service, Tennessee
Anyone out there work or have ever worked for this company? All I can find by searching are old posts when they used to be in Georgia. Thanks!!
DTS America out of Tennessee. BCBC in 30 days of employment.
Single coverage prevmis is good, maybe about 85 bi-weekly, but for family you may have to pay a bit more. Most companies do not offer discounts for family, they only cover 50% of the employee's premium.
company is bad but the Tennessee management team is the worst. Run! -nm
ASAP Medical Trans - Same as Alliance/Documed in Tennessee
Don't be fooled.  NOT a good payor.  Pay consistently late, late, late.  I believe she is trying to change the name since the word has been put out about Alliance and Documed.  This has been going on for some time and should be stopped.
I just took a PT IC position with Paladin Retrieval and so far so good.  I believe they are still looking for acute care folks.  Pay is good too.
Now, how can you possibly know that? (sm)
Seems to me 9 months is more than enough time to meet requirements.  Sounds fishy to me.  There's probably more to it than OP is saying.
How can you possibly say that? They are NOT going to be the next
to go. That client in NV is extremely pleased with TT and isn't going anywhere. I have been with TT for almost 5 years now and they have lost a total of 2 clients in that time. Gimme a freakin' break!
is that possibly why...
it takes a long time for that recruiter to get back with you, if she/he does?
Very possibly

Nothing is 100% sure of course.  But some transcription companies are already doing this, charging more and offering quality and doing very well, especially in specialty fields.  They don't advertise as much because they have lower turn over but we know who they are.

I will bet that because of increasing lawsuits and liability, hospitals are going to be a lot more careful about what becomes part of a patient's medical record.  And who has access to it.  As the economy gets worse, the big companies are going to cut corners more and more trying to squeeze more money out the business.  They probably won't even want to be bothered when their profits go down and cut into their big CEO paychecks.  First there was a glut of nurses because the hospitals didn't want to pay them.  Now there is a shortage and they are going nuts trying to recruit them.  There are cycles in business.

I don't want to become a mllionaire.  Just make a decent living for myself and some other transcriptionist.  As I said, some companies are already doing this. 

She can try RC Transcription. They have an internship. The downside is it's free. As in they do not get paid at all. But after completing the internship, they often, if they do well, get hired. Focus also has an internship. Other than that, I'm not sure of any companies that do it that way. You may want to consider giving her a letter of recommendation with the info that you are mentoring her as she works, maybe be able to get her foot in a door with a company that occasionally will take on a new MT? Good luck to her!
Could it possibly be the -
very first one, at the top of the list?
Possibly - but for whom? But even
if we lowly MTs were even offered these perks, who among use could actually afford a hybrid, or even a used jalopy, at this point??
No SE but possibly IC
In our call he said Transcend doesn't have a statutory employee status.  They do have IC status which will be addressed on an individual basis.  It's obvious they prefer folks to choose employee status but IC may be available.  I've seen their ads for ICs and they require you to have a federal employer identification number.  ICs also have to pay self-employment tax, which amounts to an additional 7.5% to cover the SS/Medicare match that the employer pays for SEs.
I don't know where they could possibly fit
they should change their name to 'TRANS-CRAP'.
possibly MedQuist
Maybe MedQuist? I was recently hired as a newbie. As a newbie, they want a set 40-hour schedule, but I was told that can change down the line. I'm statutory, BTW.
What about my message could possibly have come across like that?
All I did was comment on some of the rude replies to legitimate posts and ask for input on other positive MT sites.

Why the chip on your shoulder?

Possibly Milner ? .... nm
How can you possibly say too many MTs look for the perfect job? sm
It is those who settle for substantially less that drives the field down.  And MOST cmopanies pay for headers and footers ... anything I have to research and provide should be paid for .. to think less means you have been brainwashed.
I don't know anything about Transend, but they can't possibly
me worse than SoftScript.  If you read back through old posts there are lots of posts about both of them. 
I believe it is at least 90%, possibly as high as 98%...nm
Did you consider that possibly they do not have anything that fits what you want or that sm
you might not fit what they want for openings they have right now?

Don't take it personally but if you are really upset about it and want to find out what the reason was, ask them. The worst they can do is not tell you, but they might give you insight into something that you are projecting or missing, something that you can correct.
What training can they possibly have
that cannot be done online?

The company should invest in modern technology, otherwise it is going 'under, 'soon!'

And if you have to go, I hope the company pays for EVERYTHING.

They couldn't possibly know...sm
I plan to continue to use mine as I always have. I am just really going to have to be extra careful! I've never sent any Expander faux pas through, but my luck, it will happen now!

I agree that everyone should be on their toes. It would be quite unfair to put any unnecessary work on QA expecting them to catch it. We all need to be grammar police. It comes with the job!
Looking to possibly hire on with JLG. Is anyone happy there?? nm
Cover letter possibly?? nm
Were there too many ESLs or possibly not enough work? nm
Does this natl possibly start with a big W?
Gee, could it possibly be because there are a lot of people who actually like working
there? You have obviously had some bad experiences. I am sorry for you.
What can they possibly find to email about all day?
This is possibly one of the best responses I've seen

Could it possibly have anything to do with being a HOLIDAY on Monday? nm
Amen! Possibly the most thankless job in our
Possibly trying to get a recruiting bonus. nm
Possibly the whole idea of their email isn't
but instead, to drive as many of their US competition out of the industry as possible.

No one could possibly have problems. CB has said everything is perfect again.
She has had such great experiences even though it has been pointed out that she is working under completely different circumstances than the majority of the MLS. The MLS on BeyondTxt get rated on the percent of work going to QA and get written up if it is too high. But she would never understand that in the glass house she lives in.

She has never had and will never will sent a question to HR@trcr.com and not get a response for 2 weeks if they ever do respond. She will never have to ask any questions about insurance because she knows all the answers.
the Offshore Wagon possibly?
Could you possibly email me at my address listed above..sm
and tell me on average how many lines you can do in an hour? I know there are a lot of variables to consider but it would give me some idea of what I might expect too. I have 28 years experience and consider myself quite good, but I know sometimes the software, demographics, etc. can slow you down. Also, is there a lot of work on the accounts? I like to do about 2000 lines a day. Thank you for taking the time to help me.
