Has anyone dealt with transcription matchmaker.com?  and if so, good or bad experience? what type of a match did you come out with?, still employed there?  All info is much, much appreciated. 

Thinking of getting a little help with hope for something good that will last and make my life happy again.  Not having good luck on my own.  It's like looking for a needle in a haystack and going from the frying pan into the fire.  Thought maybe matchmaker can give me the inside scoop before getting involved.


  Thanks for your info.

Transcription Matchmaker
TM's preemployment test sucks - 3 of 4 reports were the kind you want to drop a bomb on when you get them at your regular job - inappropriate for a preemployment test.  Also, I can get these same gigs on my own, thanks.

Can you tell me what the problems are with this company? I'd seriously like to know - was going to contact them..

Transcription Matchmaker

In  the past, they tended to work with most of the companies who advertise on the majority of the MT job boards anyway.  They try to 'match your skills" with what the company may be looking for etc., but really just best in the long run to do the search on your own.

Transcription Matchmaker Service....

Here is the information that, I believe, another poster had mentioned, but didn't know where to go to find the service.

Don't bother. She basically works for one company - no matter what you want, she'll tell you that "Company A" matches your needs. I've talked to her twice in the last 2 years and the first year it was "Company X" and a few mos., it was a different company. I think whoever gives her the biggest commission is who gets recommended.

I presently work for a company that has excellent benefits, very affordable, great management people. If you want to know more, post back and I'll give you my email.
I sent my resume to them a few months back. I got a reply asking me what time zone I lived in (although my address was clearly posted in my resume). She was supposed to get back to me to set up a time for a phone interview, but I never heard from her.

I would have to agree with the above comment that it is a waste of time.
Anyone out there ever use MT Matchmaker?
Just wondering if it really works and takes the headache out of contacting a gizillion sites.
MT Matchmaker
I had a very bad experience with them and do not recommend using their services.
MT matchmaker feedback
Thanks so much for all the info out there. Sorry to hear it's such a bummer. Guess I'll just have to plod thru all the companies. Have any good ones to recommend for a full-timer??
Agree, verbatim transcription equals poor quality transcription.
Know AIM transcription system, never heard of Hull transcription. Are you sure
you are not thinking about DHull who is a recruiter for MDI-FL?  They use the AIM system. 
Transcription/QA pay
What is the average hourly pay for such a combo position? Southeast and Northern regions.  TIA
how do you know who does their transcription? nm

Has anyone ever used transcription

equipment or heard of company Infoware?  Hospital is looking at buying new equipment and just wanted to know any feedback on how easy to use.

Actually, transcription should go away
The electronic forms make a lot more sense. Who wades through those piles of records anyway? I'm not sure the whole narrative serves any purpose but perhaps in the courtroom. I'd like to think that dictating about the patient and his/her history helps clarify everything in the treating physician's mind, but I don't think anyone gives more than a cursory glance to the record later. And perhaps when looking for mechanism of injury, a brief narrative helps out... But I'm not sure we are really necessary. All that said, what are we going to do for a living now? Not all of us are 10 years or less from retirement.
OSI transcription?
Anybody have any experience with OSi transcription, good, bad or anything?  I am going to be testing with them.  What is their pay scale (I think most companies range from 7 cpl to 9 CPL).
PT transcription....
Has anyone typed for a PT Department, and how is the dictation. On a level of 1/10 what would you say. I'm currently doing neurosurgery, family medicine, orthopaedic, and pulmonary and thinking of possibly taking a position for a PT Company to do transcription in house. Any info would be greatly appreciated.javascript:editor_insertHTML('text','');
C&C Transcription

Do anybody know anything about this company? I am really interested in applying, but I am a little confused about their test. Does anyone know how many tests to do to apply? Do you pick one category and do all the tests within or several tests within several categories? If someone has applied before I would really appreciate some info on how many I need to do. Thanks.

anyone know much about C&C transcription TIA


Anyone read the article in Advance Magazine stating that transcription will be virtually obsolete as we know it in 3-5 years with take over of the back and front ends of speech recognition. Was curious as to opinions.  Seems like this message has been repeated over and over.
Anyone know anything about T-C Transcription
in Florida?
Is transcription still a hot job?
I am wondering whether all this time and energy is worth it.  I am not trying to be a downer, don't get me wrong.  I am just reading over this board and wondering how we all can stand it anymore.  I've been a Transcriptionist since 1993.  Feeling like crap today.  Hard work, is it worth it to all of you??    or    or    not sure...
transcription course
Andrews School in Oklahoma City works closely with helping you get a job and they are excellent for transcription and coding.
US Transcription
I actually worked for this company for two years and w/out trying to bash, I would simply say to watch yourself.  They have a very high turnover, and make a lot of promises they do not keep.  They also play dirty with pay.  If you work for them for a while you will very likely find out they are hiring new people at more than you make!  Keep yourself informed and in close contact with their other transcriptionists if you decide to work for them!  They also have a very nasty QA person who can be short and rude.  She really wants things done "her way" whether it meets AAMT standards or not!
Why transcription?
Curious to know. What is the main appeal to you?
Why transcription?
I can work from home, set my own hours, be my own boss.  I don't have to worry about what I'm going to do if my son is sick and has to stay home from school.  I don't have to work in an office anymore and deal with the high school mentality and backstabbing that goes on.  I save money on gas, can work in my comfy clothes, and save money on food from not having to eat out every day.  I also enjoy getting to work in the healthcare field, and I love to type!
KMM Transcription

Is anyone familiar with KMM Transcription? I saw they had an ad for IC work, but I could not find anything in the archives on this company.  Just curious! 


usa transcription?

I'm looking for a company called USA Transcription or something like that.  Can anyone help with some possibilities?  I have spent an hour on the archives and could spend hours more....lol



Took a job outside of transcription-bye all gl

Other Transcription

Does anyone know if there is any other transcription out there such as legal transcription that can be done from home.  I am trying to help a friend find some work that she can do at home.  She has no medical experience, but is looking for something she can do to earn a little extra money a month, such as data entry, legal transcription.  There are so many ads out there and she is looking for a reputable company.  Anyone out there had any experience or know of any legit companies for data entry/legal transcription, etc. that can be done at home? Thanks for any input. 

EMR and transcription
I worked one day a week in a large group practice and also did all of their transcription as an IC. They went to an EMR system. It took away approx 90% of my transcription, only a few office notes a day per doctor were being dictated, the rest was being entered into the EMR by the medical assistants, physicians and other office staff. It is a very tedious system, filling in blanks or picking items from a list, etc. It was really much more timeconsming for the physicians and staff, especially at the beginning, but they put so many $$$$ into purchasing it there was no way they were going to go back to dictating. I was offered a position scanning medical records and info into the system but the pay was less than half what I was making doing transcription as an IC. They have had to hire at least three people just to scan documents, etc and this will be a longterm comittment because they want to get their complete records into the system. Right now they do keep two part time ladies in the office that transcribe what litle they do dictate, they also are expected to do receptionist clerical work if there is no dictation to transcribe, etc. The system they have basically is point and click, using the mouse alot of the time, inserting standard phrases from a list into a template on the system, possibly typing five or six additional lines into the record, etc. Because of they way the system is set up, there was no way to make any kind of speed using the mouse, so the only thing would be to be paid hourly and unfortunately in a physicians office there is just no way to make the kind of $$$ that I could make transcribing, so I moved on to a national. There may be possibilities to do more transciption, it just depends what type of system they have and how much time the doctors want to spend entering in their own data. This has been my experience, maybe others have a different point of view. Good luck with it.
pay for new transcription
The lowest I have seen paid for transcription is 0.05 cents per 65 charcter line.  The highest is over 0.10 cents.  If I were you, I would charge somewhere in the middle around 0.07 or 0.08 cents which is the normal pay for many companies.
Transcription RPL
I am an IC working of my home for a physical therapy office. The office is quite demanding and because of the gas prices I am going to increase my rate from .12 to .14.  Is there an average? I have to drive 15 minutes each way from my house to pick/up drop off everyday. When I went to school for this 12 years ago, the average rate then per line was .12.  Any thoughts would be appreciated. I am typing on microcassettes. 
OSI Transcription

Your sure sound sour grapes about them. 

Where do you work now if you don't mind my asking.  Are you happy?

other transcription

I am curious as to if there is other transcription, also, as I have done it for a mental health center.  If you find out, would you please email me.  And also, I am new at this, how do you post what you wrote?  Thanks

SPi transcription
Anyone out there who works for SPi and uses their software, which I love, feel that they do okay?  Thanks in advance.
Using I-Pen for transcription

With the holiday commercials in full swing, I keep seeing the I-Pen commercial.  I forget the name brand, and it may be called something else, but I am talking about the pen that works like a mouse and a pen where you write with the pen and then transfer it to your computer.  Has anyone thought about or even tried to use the I-Pen for transcription?  I'm wondering if it would give the wrists a break to be using a different input device than the keyboard.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  While I'm talking about productivity, has anyone become more productive using Dragon Speaking Naturally? 


will you use it for transcription?
