Experienced, qualified transcriptionists are paid line rates that are competitive with todays rates. We pay on a 65 character line, headers and footers included. The rate that we pay may be based on worktype, volume, consistency, and quality of work. Our payment translates to very good hourly rates, which is the bottom line for MTs. We provide QA support for all work for the first five days, and continuous support for occasional questions and blanks, with feedback provided. However, as experienced MTs, work must stand alone with only occasional questions and blanks in order to remain at an experienced line rate. We have internet -based accounts with acute care and specialty practice work, as well as voice system work, such as Lanier and Dictaphone. Both the proprietary Word-based software we use for some transcription as well as our internet platform, provide a very high rate of production for experienced MTs. We feel our line rates are competitive and fair. We consistently revise our MT program to provide the most productivity possible. We feel that looking at how much you can make an hour on our platforms should determine the benefits of being an IC for us, not the line rate of one company versus another. Whether or not you can make a fair and/ or significant rate per hour on our programs should be the deciding factor. With us, you only type the reports. The program automatically generates the log as you type, and it also counts your lines. Communication with our main office is minimal and usually via e-mail so your production is not interrupted. There is no requirement for faxing back and forth from the office. It is a nice, clean system, allowing you to simply transcribe and we do the clerical. We realize that as ICs, you set your own hours and you determine the volume of work that you contract for. All we require is that we meet our clients needs regarding turnaround and quality. The IC has the option of turning down any STAT worktype if that does not meet their timeframe. Direct Deposit is offered free of charge, and will begin at the start of the third pay period.
We require a minimum of 3 years experience for Acute Care work, and 2 years experience transcribing for a specialty practice, clinic, surgery center, etc. Production environment experience essential. This is a major metropolitan market with primarily teaching institutions, and therefore, some ESLs will be encountered. Since all our docs are affiliated with a teaching facility, with very technical surgeries and diagnoses, the IC is required to have the skill and ability to transcribe a variety of disciplines every single day. Doctor practice work demands excellent skill in grammar and spelling, as well as the love of meticulous attention to detail. There is NO exclusivity required to be an IC for us. We fully expect our ICs to contract with other services. ICs must submit a business card to us showing they are a medical transcription contractor. As an Independent Contractor, you determine the volume of work that you contract for. We have never experienced a prolonged work shortage, so you can type to whatever limits you set for yourself. We have work 24/7. We do not over-assign an account, so there is no fighting to get your lines. You will have the opportunity to transcribe specific accounts. However, to achieve a significantly high volume, you will need to type more than one account. We have a testing site and all applicants are tested using the same standards. You will have to achieve a significantly high score on this test to insure that you will be able to easily transcribe the work provided without a struggle daily to achieve your lines and to provide a quality report. Typos are heavily weighed, as are drug misspellings and common term misspellings. The test is taken on line, and the site includes instructions for downloading the voice and playing it through your sound card or a wave player. COMPUTER REQUIREMENTS: A Pentium class (at least Pentium III), 400 megahertz computer with a large hard drive. High Speed Internet Access. The majority of our work is done utilizing our internet- based program, which requires that you have High Speed Internet Access.
