Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

this is insane.  when you see who is running this - the person whose claim to fame is actually making the medical transcription business what it is today, boasting over 400,000 MTs. 

now she is trying to what, cut that workforce down by maybe more than half. 

this is an extremely aggressive push for mobile healthcare and point-of service care, which from what I see completely eliminates the need for people at all, period. 

does anyone know, please, is there a future for us in this picture.  is there anyone working with these people to help preserve our jobs in some form at least? 

where do we write, who do we talk to?  this person also used to run the AAMT, and now has jumped ship for the opportunity to make probably millions for front-running this technology.  does she even consider the 400,000 MTs (in this country alone) losing their livelihood.  does she care? 

IS THERE GOING TO BE A PLACE FOR US???

temp+heat index= HOT!
Heat index here Sunday (according to National Weather Service) was 126! 97 temp and 77% humidity = 126. Not sure how they got that figure, but it was during the county fair parade, and some high school kids marching barely made it the 3 mile route. Kids and I escaped to a movie theater!
Considering the heat index is 107 here today....
Shorts and a tank top work for a lot here today. I myself wear shorts and tank tops that I find from DKNY, Liz Claiborne, etc. So they aren't junior clothing and are appropriate. Just because I am 47 doesn't mean that I need to put a sack over my head or this body which is in great shape, considering I've had four children, and a hysterectomy. Still a size 8 and will continue to be a size 8. :)
95 with heat index of 100, but hope
is on the way, cool front due tomorrow with lows in the 50s and highs in the 80s.

Anyone have a med phrase index book for sale?
I'm signed up with Andrews and am quite a ways into it but they still haven't sent the Lorenzini Medical Phrase Index, and I'm tired of waiting.  Tired of them not sending back tests, too.  Wish I had gone to M-Tec now.
The American Drug Index is good

PMIC Medical Phrase Index by (sm)

Jean A. Lorenzini & Laura Lorenzini Ley.  The fifth edition is a burgundy hardback.  It used to be navy blue years ago.  See link for a pic.  I have this and love it!!!!! 



 


Medical Phrase Index is a necessity. sm
It is the easiest to use, covers many many words from many specialities, and I use mine every day.
As far as specialties, Stedman's makes reference books for pretty much every speciality.
Also, I use my Stedman's Medical&Surgical words a lot even though I'm not doing surgery charts; you'd be amazed how much you need to know just for a patient's past history!
I prefer the Drake&Drake Pharmaceutical Word Book, but everybody has their own preferences for drug references.
Get some index card to write acct specifics on,

I second the Medical Phrase Index, best reference I had when I started out, NM
z
My number 1 recommendation is the Medical Phrase Index by Lorenzini sm
and would also recommend Stedman's Abbreviations and Labs - these are all more generic since you are doing a variety. It would be best if you could eventually get Stedman's Cardio and other specialities...but I highly recommend Medical Phrase Index for newer transcriptionists - it helped me tremendously in the beginning
The site tells me to change an index.html code to access. Dunno what that is??? nm

Not to change the subject.. but in Medical Phrase Index, debride doesn't have an accent mark. nm

Stedman's phrase book vs. Medical Phrase Index? sm
I'm debating between the newest edition of the MPI versus the Stedman's phrase book. Have had experience with the MPI, but not the Stedman's one. Is Stedman's worth it?

This is the one I use. It gives the Brand names on the top- and generic on the bottom. Also, you can use the wild card(*) and it gives drugs that are similar in spelling, so you don't have to know the exact spelling. Also,you can look up typical dosages of that drug, so you can double-check if you have the right ones.

I certainly wouldn't let them be privy to that much info about me and neither should you.  You can do something about it.
