I heard a year or so ago that Chestnut Hill Hospital in Phila. was hiring in-house MT's
Only on one hospital. (in a snowy city?)
Know nothing about SOM hospitals, this is a small hospital outside Kansas City. nm
Diskriter off off offshores - and on some hospital accounts - they have not informed the hospital
Diskriter Hospital
I was considering working for Diskriter on the hospital account in Florida.  There are lots of comments in the archives, but I was wondering if anybody has recent experience with the account manager and that account.  It seems like a revolving door, and I want to avoid becoming part of that action.  I want the hospital work and insurance, but is it flexible enough? Do they train well? How's the pay? Would my boss be available to me?  Any advice would be appreciated.  I am deciding between them and TransTech. Thanks
Diskriter versus hospital
There is a BIG difference between working for Diskriter and working for a hospital through Diskriter.  I've done both and there's no comparison.
Anyone had experience with Diskriter hospital sm

employee status positions?   Sounds really tempting. 


Diskriter hospital employee
Is there anyone working on the hospital accounts through DR? I would like more information from those that are currently working or have previously worked on the hospital side. Good, bad, and ugly. Thanks!

Diskriter hospital employee
I wanted to post this again as nobody responded to my previous post. Does anyone work as a hospital employee through Diskriter? If you are currently working for Diskriter at all, could you give me some insight on the company and benefits from your perspective? Thanks!
To be a hospital employee (Diskriter), do you have
Diskriter versus hospital accounts

Did they explain the Diskriter versus hospital status to you when you spoke with them?  I'm a little confused about that from the above posters.  Thanks!

Diskriter-Hospital Employee Status

I've recently accepted a hospital employee status position with Diskriter.  Is there anyone else out there that works one of these positions that would be willing to network with me?

Diskriter Florida hospital employees
Would anyone that works for the Florida hospital as a hospital employee through Diskriter care to share their experience?  Any info is appreciated, good or bad. Thanks!  Have a great and productive day! 
At Diskriter, that hospital system in Florida that they do .... SM

is anyone familiar with it?  There seems to be a lot of turnover - do you think it's because of bad dictators, bad sound, or what?? 

Re Diskriter, anyone work for the PA teaching hospital they have? SM
If so, can you post your opinion here?  Or you may email me if you'd like.  Thanks.
Diskriter MTs, is hospital account or DR accounts a
anyone work as hospital employee for/through Diskriter?
Was wondering how that works out, if that setup is better than working for a service. Better benefits, workload?
Florida Hospital Diskriter Position sm

I have been looking through the archives..  I was interested in applying to the Diskriter Florida hospital position but I had heard that you had to take a drug test, credit check, criminal background check and a pre-employment physical.

Is that true?  Especially about the preemployment physical.  I just find that completely weird.. 

Any companies out there that offer the hospital benefits besides Diskriter
I currently work in-house a hospital but they do not have at-work positions and I would like ot work at home so I wondered if there were other companies and/hospitals that hire at-home MTs with full benefits....besides Diskriter as I have not heard a lot of good news about them and it makes me nervous to apply.
info on Florida hospital acct with Diskriter

Does anyone have any info on this acct with Diskriter where you are an actual hospital employee with hospital benefits??


It is weird. I worked for the Florida Hospital thru Diskriter.... SM

back in 2005 when Diskriter first landed the gig.  I had to take a drug test, see my personal doctor for a physical and have him fill a very long and involved form, and get a TB test all for a facility I would never set foot in!  It took three long weeks for me to get through all the red tape and actually start the job.

The work was okay, but it ran out and you had no secondary account because you were employed by the hospital.  So if you wanted a backup account, then you had to go through more red tape to actually be an employee of Diskriter too and there was a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo that came with that because Diskriter was managing the transcription department for this hospital and the hospital had a contract that said that Diskriter could not put the hospital's employees on Diskriter accounts without express consent from the hospital. 

The supervisor of the hospital employees was employed by Diskriter and was incompetent.  We weren't able to get sample reports, normals, etc. out of her.  We always got the standard I'll look into that or It's in the works.  It seemed she had no contact with the hospital HIM department at all.  However, they could have a new person in that position now.  Like I said it was all brand spanking new back then.

Oh and your benefits were out of Florida.  So unless you're planning on flying into Florida to see a doctor or have an operation, you're basically screwed.  The bennies may have changed too by now though -- so who knows.

After three months, I just decided it was all just too much and left.  All the hoops I jumped through to get the job and then to have the job be such a disappointment was just irritating!

Diskriter - Working for the largest hospital system in FL.
The benefits look fabulous! Strict schedule? Good PTO?

I'm a new hospital employee through Diskriter and you are correct. Ins kicks in 1st month after h
You cant beat the benefits and that is why I chose hospital. You get PTO, holiday pay, downtime pay, and sick time. The insurance is one of the best out there.

Thomas Transcription
Does anyone have information on Thomas Transcription from Florida or can Email some information.  TIA.
Thomas Trans
They expect perfection....Sometimes work loads are heavy, sometimes light - they will pull work form you for the smallest of innocent errors...without telling you, then after asking you get the bad girl talk like you should have known not to make an error at all. Pay is on time after hold two weeks first pay. Some ESL, some difficult - speedy mush mouth - but if you are perfect and do not need to talk to the office - can be okay. Just be perfect absolutely perfect.
Thomas Transcription
I'm thinking of applying with them.  Can anyone give me any pros/cons?  Pay?  Platform?  TIA!
Thomas Transcription in FL, anyone??
sent resume, wondered if anyone knows good or bad or even is employed by them.  Thanks
How about Thomas Transcription....any thoughts??

How are they to work for?   Platform?  Pay??  THANKS!!!!

Thomas Trans was a great place
to work.  I worked very closely with Dee and she always went out of her way for me.  Negatives:  No direct deposit, checks always ran late and ran out of work quite a bit. 
Thomas Trans Any reviews/comments on this company?
Thanks in advance
Diskriter - Anyone go from their employee to hospital employee with them?
Thinking about giving up on being their employee and applying for a hospital employee position through them, they have one in PA right now that looks good.  How is it for scheduling?  Do you keep your line rate or get whatever the hospital pays? Who manages those accounts, is it the same PM and DR that are on the other ones?  I have DR and feel like she doesn't have a clue what she is doing and it is so annoying, but I just don't have the guts to let the company know she needs to step it up a notch because the transcriptionists are not happy under her.  Are QA the same people or through the hospital.  They have 1 QA that is constantly asking us questions on doctors and format, things we should be asking that QA person.  Annoying that new people move up to QA but people who've been there 2 or 3 years get treated like dirt and jumped account to account.
Kansas City
Anyone from Kansas City?
Kansas City
Moved back to KC about 6 months ago, lived here about 15 years ago and now back, what part are you in?
Kansas City
Yeah, the Missouri and Kansas boards haven't been touched for a year maybe! There doesn't seem to be many successful transcription companies in Kansas City.

But just think how much easier it'll be to look at that electric bill!  I keep ours over 80, but I'm the opposite...65 and lower and the heat is ON!

If you are in Iowa City
I highly recommend The University.  Further information available upon request.
How do you find them? I'm in a big city and
KC as in Kansas City? nm
What "new center"?
The Transcription Center
Has anyone worked for this co. in Texas that could comment? 
I'm not really near anything. The nearest city has a population of
about 57,000.  It's really close.
River City Transcription

Does anybody know anything about this company?  They offered me a position, but I want to make sure before I accept.  Thanks!

River City Transcription
I'm not so sure about this company. They want me to have Word 2000 or 2001 installed on my computer. I told them I have not used that version of Word in years and that I have Word 2003 and 2007. I like to stay up-to-date with the latest technology and software. Not so sure about these people...sounds kind of old fashion to me.
River City Transcription
They never got back to me when I told them that I have MS Word 2003 and also a copy of 2007. I do not think I am going to waste my time with this company.
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. 
Try Kimball Medical Center

I'd still contact the solution center
I got the email from my STM this week as well (bet we have the same one!), but I have not been experiencing any problems. It is still very possible that the reason you are having so many difficulties is something to do with your router (if you have one) or ISP. I know how frustrating it is when the platform keeps freezing up on you. I was having so much trouble until I changed the settings on my router and now it is smooth sailing. Definitely contact the Solution Center and see what they can do to help you. There's no reason to suffer through it if there is a fix out there.
Doctor's Medical Center
I searched this board and couldn't find any specific info on this company.  Does anyone work for them?  Know anything positive or negative about them?  Know about their pay scale?
A local surgery center
I was referred to them through someone else. They have had trouble keeping a transcriptionist. Now I know why.
CMC (Carolinas Medical Center)
is located in Charlotte, NC. I know, because I used to work there. They have bought A LOT of the hospitals in North Carolina. It is a VERY large corporation. Good company to work for.
