Medical-related job that is so much better than most transcription - former MT

Posted: Dec 17th, 2020 - 4:52 pm

For those of you looking for something a little different, Nuance now has remote scribe positions ("quality documentation specialist") paying $13/hour and with fantastic benefits (4 weeks paid vacation/PTO, holidays, etc. ... the health insurance is pretty good too).

I don't mean this to sound like an advertisement, simply throwing out a possible life preserver for some who might be drowning in MT like I was.  This position just recently went up to $13/hour, so even though I'd considered scribe positions before, I always shut them down due to the $9 or $10 an hour they were paying. (Oh, and unfortunately, they won't hire from states that have or will soon have a minimum wage higher than $13, like California.) 

It's admittedly quite confusing at first, with a lot of the usual Nuance shenanigans, but I'm still really happy I made the leap.  I may not say that in a month or so when I have to start over with a whole new specialty and all because my current account is going to India, but you know what ... I probably still will. When you're being paid hourly (with a quota of reports per hour that's not unreasonable), it makes it quite a bit easier to put up with these kinds of changes, especially since it seems like there will be a continuing increasing need for QDS's.

You can also chat with your co-workers by MS Teams, which makes it so much easier job-wise than the isolation (except for some apparently irritating Slack boards or similar here and there) that we usually suffer doing remote MT.  

Not sure if I can or should post a link about it considering the insanity going on with the spam here now, so just google 'quality documentation specialist nuance.'  (Despite the ad mentioning "in real-time," it is actually from audio recordings dictated generally the same day or the day before, so very similar to MT in that regard.)
