They want to know about cardiology exp, SM
since that seems to be another speciality of acute care now. Also, oncology, since they are always looking for people who are proficient in that.

What do you think is the highest paid specialty in transcription?  Cardiology perhaps?


Do you think the cardiology specialty offers more income and job stability than rad, ortho, or other specialties?

Anyone offer just cardiology! The more I do it, the
Looking for employee status.  Thanks!
i dont know if it would be the best, but i like cardiology
Cardiology or multispecialty? sm
The pay is very good. The cardiology platform is quite technical (Gemms)and sluggish to type in. They have other accounts where you can work in Word and they pay by the gross line. The work was easy though, including the ESLs. When I was there, the invoicing was monotonous - detailed spread sheets. They do invoicing twice a month, but are slow in mailing paychecks - I got my checks 2 to 3 weeks after turning in an invoice.
Cardiology doesn't pay more, but ...
You don't make a higher line rate - at all - doing cardiology, but I have noticed that cardio (at least studies and consults and whatnot) tends to have more templates/macros, so that's where the good stuff would come in.

I used to work for a company a few years ago - had two cardiologists (who did a lot of studies), a couple of pulmonologists (who stunk, but I didn't have to do them much), and two internal med doctors (who both had 40-line macros that rarely had to be adjusted).

My line count was consistently 550-650 an hour, and I was making 9.5 cpl.

Man, I miss that account.
Mid-Atlantic Cardiology?
Do anyone have any informantion on which MTs does Mid-Atlantic Cardiology?  Would be interested in a part-time cardiology position.
Not on cardiology acct, but do work for SGS.
Can I help?
I have been typing cardiology exclusively
now for quite some time.  I would love some info as well!!! Count me in too, please.

7 cpl for 5 yrs cardiology/10 yrs acute care?
They gotta be kidding.
I see MD-IT is hiring again for cardiology. I would not recommend to anyone
applying to this company. Their recruiter is very rude and she lies, lies, lies. I found their interview extremely misleading and underhanded.
New cardiology job post on job seeker's board....
anybody know what company this is?
Anyone working on the new cardiology account for Archivus out of NC?
Looking for info on platform used, percentage of ESLs, number of docs, if there are templates/headers/footers?
Any info on CTS: Cardiology Transcription Services out of NY?
sorry..that was Cardiology Transcription Servces (tired)
Not sure if they are hiring, but if you like cardiology, CardioScribes is terrific! sm

WestTran is also a good company for clinic work, although, again, I do not know if they are hiring.   Both companies are IC work.  Good luck in your search!


CardioScribes. They just do cardiology clinics, which is great for me sm

since I was the lead MT for 8-1/2 years for group of cardiologists here locally so I am quite familiar with it all.  And it is a nice break from acute care.  Of course, just because it is the perfect fit for me does not make it right for everyone.  As they always say, one man's Heaven is another man's Hell.


Not just cardiology, other things. You might be talking about a different account
Perhaps it is a different server (there are 2 for regular 1 for rad), and that is why you are not getting the information. Why not just e mail your sup to ask to be trained on something else too. I did and that is the reason why I am working. They need to know if you are willing to learn new account specs, or go to another server, probably. But the new one I am working on I am getting fine reports.
My cardiology account is actually my lowest paying.
On the Job Seeker's board, there is a cardiology account

for a company TOS.  Does anyone know what TOS stands for and who they are?? Thanks

current info on Cardiology Transcription Svc please
Eeegads! I don't mind more detailed but don't like cardiology! :( but thanks for the response
Anyone working on cardiology account for Superior Global out of TX?
Anyone working for Superior Global out of TX doing the cardiology studies?


TT new account is cardiology, procedure junk that you cant get lines on.
So, it is working for nothing practically.  Just a new account on board for TT.
I've been with the company almost 10 years. I know the truth. Hawaii was a company-paid vacation.
They do not offshore. The owner's original company was bought by MQ; started a new company, whic
That's about all I know. I would give them a try. They sounded good!
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
Must be a small company. I have never talked to the owner of the company I work for. sm
He wouldn't have time. Why would someone talk directly to the MTSO? Most do not know (or care) about the details just the big picture.
I hope my company flies under the radar. This is horrible what happens to one company sm
after another on this board.  The owners must have very thick skin.  First TT, then Amphion, now Keystrokes.  No one is safe.  I hope everyone takes all they read with a grain of salt.  I have met a few of the owners of the some of the bigger services, and they are all very nice, including those that own Webmedx, Keystrokes, Execuscribe, Medware, MDI and Transcend.  I hate to think how they feel when they read things on here, even though they all say they don't read the posts here and advise against it.  I don't know how they don't read them; I look just to make sure that no one mentions mine.
Maybe QA made the decision, not the company, and the company managers are not aware of it. sm
I started with a company that did the same thing. When I went to the manager outside of QA, she fixed it right away. Turns out that the QA manager had made a decision to do that and had not told anyone else.

It does make sense to do that though. Find out if it is a few days or longer and base your decision on that.

Can we ask which company or at least which state they're out of?

Unfortunately, I am going to be looking AGAIN due to offshore.
or maybe it's really a good company. Give me a break. If a company isn't talked about sm
on here, good or bad, it's probably too small to matter and does not offer benefits or anything at all.
Ask insider if her company is in position to take on MTs from other company who are familiar
Loyalty has nothing to do with it until you find the company for you. Be loyal to THAT company.
Let me know if you pursue this company. I would like to work for a MN company as an employee?
Let me know! Thanks!
Chasing work from company to company - Have any of you ever watched (sm)

5 year olds learning to play soccer?  The ball is in play and no matter what the coahes say ALL the kids go running for the ball.  Maybe we are like that, masses of us going from company to company in search of work.  This company has a new account BOOM here we go.  Now it is out.  Let's go here. 

Yep, I think it is a big game someone is playing with us.  Not a particularly funny one either. 

Why would you want to work for a company with no QA? Anyways the only company that comes to mind is
I worked for in the past which is Medquist NJ Radiology.
Love this company - want to retire with this company...sm
Been with them for nearly 2 years now and absolutely love them. I make my living with them - I don't do this for fun money. I think the dictators are pretty decent - you will always have your good and bad ones. You just have to get used to them. I love the account I am on - been with the same one since I started. They are a VERY fair company to work for.
They are not a Fortune 500 company. They are a past INC 500 company. There is a
HUGE difference.

Just FYI ... the article was in the Rochester Business News. It notes that the person charged with everything was the owner's husband, not Linda herself. It was something that was done at the company that he worked for, not Execuscribe. If their biggest client is going to fill-in reports, I am sure they will bounce back and get something else. I doubt they do not know that it is happening. Any MTSO worth her/his salt keeps an ear to the ground AND has enough contact with their accounts to be up-to-date on changes about to happen, good and bad.

Perhaps you should not be so smug and instead focus your energies on figuring out WHY your customers were able to be taken from you. I hardly doubt that a good business person could be an ex-MTSO because of another service. There is too much work out there.

You can' ask a question directly TO a company. About them, yes. The company isn't going to ans
company going to service company or India?
That is a hard thing to be cut back after you are used to that position.  We have a couple of hospitals near here who have turned over all of their work to a Service Company, and one eliminated their department and turned over to India.  I am afraid that the service company may be taking over our work also.  Understand the others kept same pay, but lost most benefits.  Anyone else have this happen to them?
It matters more on the company than the method. Go with a company that does a lot of sm
radiology or it won't matter because you won't have a big check no matter what. Ask them how many radiology accounts they have, if they are overflow or complete department, how long they have had them and do you get a back-up account.

There are very few out there that have good radiology accounts. Stick with the ones that do. I am with Keystrokes for that reason after going with 4 others that kept running out of work.

Small company GREAT COMPANY

Axolotl is a WONDERFUL company with great benefits and competitive pay.  We have maybe 100 MTs but are growing rapidly.

Exactly..company recruiters and/or company owners (sm)
Meant every company for every MT, not every company for every company. nm
Started small; great company. Rapid growth; not so great company
First year I was there was like heaven. Then the big growth spurt when they hired managers from another company (that I had run away from before because of their bad management) and let them kind of take over. Although I have no proof it was as though I got 'bumped' by these new people when they came in and I lost a good account, good manager, etc. My paycheck went down every month lower and lower, and it became harder and harder to make my minimal lines. Having any kind of advocate was nonexistent.

It depends on you and what kind of MT you are. Seems to me there are pretty much 2 types...

Sports like basketball where you have the pros who play with finesse, and then you have street players who think it is all about physical strength, period. More and more the physical strength is winning but the art of the game gets lost more and more...

As in this country where there are almost 2 sides now, those with intellect and thoughtfulness, and those who think the only way to be strong and be a leader is to beat up everyone who does not agree with you...and force your will on others.

Suffice it to say in my opinion WMX changed its philosophy of the way it treated employees and lost its heart when it grew, and it was literally almost overnight...

If you are a mass producer who has no care of what it takes to make money, if you are a 'street fighter' then it would probably be for you because you WILL have to fight for everything. Fight for the right account, fight for lines, fight to be treated fairly, etc. If you appreciate MTing for the art of MTing or have any kind of joy for the profession, my guess is you will not make it there very long...

This is happening all throughout the what used to be called profession. Seems to happening all through everything these days. Humanity and heart are being pushed down to the bottom...
how do we work it? Easy answer - work for another company. That happened with the company
I was working for. I would wake up at 4 a.m. AND ON THE WEEKENDS TOO because they needed "coverage" supposedly and I would sit until 9:30 or noon without any work. Sorry, but my rent of $1450/month could not be paid with only $57/day. So I got another job and when I got the equipment and everything, then I quit for the other employer.
AllHealth in GA - Good company, good equipment, any info about this company? (sm)

What type of work do they have?  Any op reports?  Appreciate any info. 

Why not? It is either this company, MQ (most of the time) or another company.
If you don't like it, don't read.  That simple.
