Remote position, typical outsource transcription company, emphasis on high productivity for not much compensation.
Medical Language Specialist (Current Employee) – Burlington, MA – June 2, 2015
This is an outsource company that contracts with multiple hospitals around the country to perform their transcription via voice recognition. I am sent the voice and/or partially completed clinical reports to edit and complete, or transcribe. I am assigned one primary hospital account, and have approximately 6 additional accounts that I have access to, and have to work in if they need help. Each account has their own specifications I need to adhere to, as well as my own corporate guidelines in regards to accuracy and quality. I meet these guidelines in a timely fashion. It can be difficult to keep up with multiple providers' guidelines, so attention to detail is an absolute necessity in this job. I work an evening shift, and frequently late at night my accounts will run out of dictation, so I run out of work to do. I am not compensated for this, and for this reason I wish to transition to another work field. I also want to spend more time with my family by working a day job, Monday through Friday. I have had the ability to work remotely from home for the past 14 years, which I have enjoyed very much. Transcription is being overtaken by technology in that voice recognition is turning it into an editing position, which has reduced the pay scale greatly. This is also another reason for my wishing to exit this field of work.
