Main Board Today's Top Viewed: There is life after MT'ing.. (Views: 40)

Another problem with MT work is companies who hire you as IC - but demand you work employee terms. SM

They hire you as IC, tell you it's part time only, no benefits, work when you want, telling you anything you want to hear just to get you hired and started now, and then later you find out they really want you working specific hours, days, and so on. As always, the implication of if you don't want to work their employee terms under lower IC pay and terms, they will find someone else to do it. Especially the higher wage states/companies who are too cheap to pay minimum or decent wages to people in their own state, so they hire out of state people for lower wages.

No, hospitals won't pay more to get better results. They simply do not care and flat out refuse to pay more. That's why many of them put the disclaimers in the reports that state something like 'dictated/signed but not read' or 'automated transcription may have errors' which is complete garbage.

I promise you, the top of the food chain DOES NOT CARE about errors in the medical records. Unless, of course, it affects their own care.

They only care about cutting costs so the administrative staff and highest paid doctors can have their custom-built, million-dollar cushy homes out on the lake and private golf course gated communities as well as their expensively furnished and private top floor offices, conference rooms, and lounges with private bathrooms stocked with expensive products for executive and guest use only to impress visitors and financial backers.

That's why the cost cutting at the bottom of the chain to keep the fat up at the top of the chain. They will only care about errors when it hits them in the wallet with a lawsuit for malpractice. Then it's all hell breaks loose at the bottom of the chain to blame the MT and immediately fire whoever typed the report with errors, or blame the automated transcription.

True story. Seen all of the above.
