TTD, Inc DOES offshore. They should not be on this list. nm
Is there a list of companies that DON'T OFFSHORE?

If not, can we list them here?  I'm tired of getting laid off or not having enough work from companies who're sending work to India. 


If you know of a company that doesn't offshore, it would also be nice if you could say whether or not they require VR.


Thanks in advance to anyone who participates -- we're all in this together!   

Here is a list of companies that offshore ... FYI

See study overview table from 2008 MTSO study:


OP asked for a list of companies that DO offshore (sm)
Inside the post she asked to start a second list of companies who keep work here in the USA.  I understood the post, and was merely listing Keystrokes as someone who does NOT offshore to go on the second list of companies that keeps work here.  KS does NOT offshore and they never will.
Take Precyse Solutions in GA off the list because they most definitely do offshore....
They do hire American MTs though, along with all of their MTs in India
How do you know list is true? I can make a list,
The majority
of their accounts are NOT online yet, most are still C-phone or Lanier.
The majority of them do. There are still some that
don't, but the list is growing all the time of the ones that do. 
I agree. I think since the majority SM
of the workers in this field are female, they are hesitant to take action to preserve their financial stability and just sit and wait for things to get better (they almost never do).
For the majority of tests, you HAVE to go by
BOS2. No way you can pass it if you are not following the rules.
Heartland - Majority of the US accounts
were sent to India. They lost the account I was working on (FL account) and now I am pretty sure we are going to get let go...
Majority of comments here are very negative about them. nm
For a few works okay, but majority have problems sm
sooner or later. Can be fine one day and next day can be sick to death with vomiting, diarrhea, obstruction, on and on. Have seen it too many times. A friend I know had to stay in a nursing home for a year after her surgery from major complications. She still is not right, plus she is fat again.

I think this surgery is just a quick fix kind of thing and not anything that lasts for long. There are still too many unknowns about it and other risks over a long period of time.
It is 90 days, just like the majority of companies. (nm)
Sounds like TransTech and it's NOT how the majority of accounts are. nm
I wish the majority of sheeple in this country would wake up and
see the reality, but they won't until it's too late.
Even after years of doing this, it's NOT true for the majority of MTs these days. Look at how man
Majority of MTs say just give me the work and leave
Oh so true. The majority of recruiters I have emailed (sm)
either don't give you the courtesy of a reply, or when they do get around to it 6 months later, you're already working somewhere else. I like your idea, but I don't think it would succeed. If they can't take 15 seconds to reply to receipt of your email with an automated message, I highly doubt they would reserve time out of their day to give attention to us on boards such as these.
Actually, you should be MORE amazed at the fact that the majority of our profession has been
outsourced and to add insult to injury, we are expected to survive on what is practially tantamount to Third World wages?  Not only that, but as a MT for the last 25+ years, I am livid about the fact that our medical information is in the hands of individuals outside of this country not to mention SS#, etc.  IMO that particular issue among others I have listed should be a legitimate cause for concern....
offshore overseas.... not outsource .... correct term is offshore.
I think majority of negative comments start when work is low and
they start looking for another job. I, for one, would rather be too busy and have to work an extra hour or 2 than not to have any work. Overhiring is the death of all of us, since we do not have a guaranteed income unless you are a team leader or hourly employee.

Failure to pay on time is another large problem that will produce negative comments.

If companies were actually above-board with the problems at their company before the hiring process is completed, a lot of this could be avoided.
A majority want 600 lpd for PT. Being able to put in extra hours varies from place to
Infinity makes the majority of the foot pedals, so to

ask if an Infinity pedal will work is too general of a question.  Do you need game port, serial port, USB, 9 pin, 15 pin, etc.  They can be configured different ways so just because it is an Infinity doesn't mean it will work. 

I use an Infinity pedal but it is specially configured to be compatible with only DVI. 


You have absolutely get your lines in the vast majority of the time - sm
In other words, you cannot have technical problems one day, decide to run errands the next, and then the 1 day out of 3 you decide to work there is very low work and you cannot get your lines in they will call and/or send an e-mail asking why.  You need to be doing what you agreed to in your contract or you are going to get fired.  I think that is true at most places now.
Exactly. The majority of the population can't afford health care.
Huh.  Sound familiar?
The majority of places have you use templates and software platforms. Maybe someone can suggest a
They send a majority of the Escription accounts to India. There are a few of the hospitals that said
they could not send their work there but I suspect they do anything. In any event, yes, a lot of the easier work goes to India and they are proud of this affliation, not bad it doesn't pay my bills. Then, they wonder why we are so angry about India taking our jobs.
This seems to be pro-offshore board. Messages against offshore often just disappear.
well she is a liar then. the majority speaks and the truth has been heard. sorry, actions speak

Type in "Interpro" on a search here and you'll see the vast majority of comments
A search of the Main Board will show salaries discussed svl times over. Majority of us are paid
A majority of at-home MT is overflow work with in-house getting the bulk of the work. If they clean
offshore to India, it's OFFSHORE (off shore), not outsource to India.
add me to the list
Like the ones that want you to add them to an IM list so they can
see if you are online and keep track of you every minute of the day?  Best cure for that is to keep your internet program on 24/7 and never answer one of their IMs
Don't want to list it here
it ain't much!  Compound that with no work.  'outta there.
A wish list???
What kind of list? It's a cry for help to sift through some of the many transcription companies I have seen mentioned on-line. Most of the lists I have seen are either just all lumped together with essentially no information, or sometimes listed by states.

I was asking for the the names of the biggest companies as a sort of initial filter. However, as I stated, I AM wondering about the safety of going with a big company. I have been working for a medium size, local company with one huge account. They lost it and due to that and other factors, they have just decided to go out of business. I realize bigger isn't necessarily better.

Another issue for me is that I like to travel and think it would be nice to sometimes be able to pack a small amount of equipment, maybe just a laptop and foot pedal, and be able to work.

I know there are going to be conflicting opinions, but for me right now even that might be helpful. The company I was working for had good and bad points and I loved and hated it sometimes within the same day.

Great strengths it had that I would like to find again: At least competitive pay, benefits, and most of all - lots of flexibility. I basically only had to make a quota every two weeks and not even that was VERY strictly enforced. Other than that, I had almost total flexibility. I would certainly pass on making only a few more dollars in order to retain my flexibility.

So, it's a list of biggest companies, a list of suggested companies, and in a perfect world it would be a list of companies that meet all of my needs. For now, I'd just settle for any good suggestions.
Yes, I list everything.
That's really sad, because they are trying to stop from earning a living, thus driving more people into poverty......
My name better NOT be on such a list...
If I find this to be the case, my attorney will most certainly be contacted.
Here's a list for you
1. Better start-up information and training. The majority of companies I have worked with don't seem to understand how little training they actually provide. A few notes taken over the phone in a training session is not training! Think about all the jobs you have had on site - and compared that type of training to what you typically receive via cyberspace. Not even close right? If anything, training people remotely should equate to *more* training, not less. And, of course, I'm not referring to MT training, but account/platform specific training. Supply samples, hints, a list of problems encountered in the past and their solutions. You can't just fly through the steps of a complicated platform once and expect top notch production.

2. Feedback and updated account info. It's really disheartening to never hear from an account *until* you make a mistake. Positive feedback is as important as negative feedback.

3. Communication. Cannot be over-emphasized. I have worked with MTSO's who IM you to death (overkill) to those who apparently think new procedures are related via osmosis...

4. One of the biggest mistakes MTSO's make is getting more accounts then they can properly manage (and/or doing so with a skeleton crew to maximize profits).


To the list
Don't forget about over-hiring! That annoys me so much!
My list
1. Pay me on time.
2. Pay me correctly.
3. Give me clear account specs.
4. Treat me with respect and don't talk down to me.
5. Give me feedback when I'm doing something wrong AND when I'm doing something right.
I would add these to your list...sm

Webmedx, Medscribe, Diskriter, Transcend, Transolutions.  Not sure about your other questions though.

Good Luck!

add me to the list
I think we were on the same account and quit at the same time (in May of this year). Two days after I quit, I received an email that P was leaving the company. I too had heard that she lost a total of 4 employees that week. What a shame. The folks that sold Cymed should be ashamed - they had a good thing going and it just went down the tubes. I struggled to make my line count for months and finally had to give up and look elsewhere. Looking back, I should have left as soon as SPi took over. You would think that I would learn by now!
Add me to the list
I have 4-1/2 years there. Some of it has been a challenge but with our new president and some changes he's making, we're back on track. I make pretty good money on my account, and management has been particularly wonderful to me. Love it!
job list
Look in the manual under Logs. I'm having a meltdown over counting and converting for line counts. The account I'm on does not have a built in line counter. Hope yours does. My friend works on a different account and she doesn't have to do anything. Good luck!
Just a list
I think they have just listed hospitals within those states and they are not hospitals they have contracts with. I know for a fact that several Maryland hospitals as well as Wisconsin hospitals do not oursouce to them. It does lead one to believe, though, that they have contracts with them.
here's my list
Acusis: Best company ever. The people are very nice, pay always on time, work is great....a little low in the mornings right now, but always able to make my keystroke requirements.

Proscript: Another great company, with very nice people, good accounts, and pay is always on time.

InHealth: Another good company. Work was good, people nice, pay always on time.

Keystrokes: Not a good match for me. Was lied to about my pay, but I have a friend who works there that loves it. The account I was on was a good account, just didn't really care for the owner.

Preferred Transcriptions: The account I was on was great, but other accounts not so great. Pay is low, and the gal who runs the company could use some classes on how to be a littler nicer.
Right at the top of the list would be AMM...sm
Another Medical Must...horribly disorganized owner who uses primarily MTs from India and the Phillipines and wonders why she loses her accounts. Tells every MT a different story about what's going on with the company. Put this one on your don't even bother list.
