A community of 30,000 US Transcriptionist serving Medical Transcription Industry
Has anyone had low volume on work lately. We have had such low volume lately that my checks are short. It has been over a month now.
You fight all day long to get a job to type. Then in the evenings there are a few more, but that just means staying up until the middle of the night to get them done. I would like to know if it is just localized or widespread. Work on the East coast. Not that either makes me feel any better.
My husband wonders if the EMR is the problem or maybe our company has lost accounts and put more people on our account. Not getting answers when questioning our home office.
I know that where my mother lives in the middle of the country a University Hospital is planning on being transcription free in less than two years. Even if their goal is two years, that could still me a few more than that, but they are phasing them out already now. My mother also says that there are a bunch of small doctor's office and hospitals that have already gone transcription free and it seems to be working for them at the present time.
Anyone else having low work, no work at the present time?
