USACS is a good, solid place to work. The environment was pleasant, with very little animosity between departments. 90% of management seemed capable, good people, who also got along with each other. Which meant there was better communication between departments. The benefits are pretty nice, with a great 401k and good medical.
Unfortunately for the vast majority of positions they are very over your shoulder, and in some cases over micro-managed. You have to track yourself on what you did, how long it took, and how many you got done, 100% of the time. In many cases some of this information is made public to the workforce, sometimes in real time (via TV screens).
If you're ok with the "Over your shoulder" part, then I would recommend it.
What I enjoyed most about working here is that they do invest in people. People are given every opportunity to learn and develop their skills. This is not the kind of place that will get rid of you if you have a hard time catching on. You will be given multiple opportunities to improve.

My typical day of work was very fast paced and I learned the aspects of health care billing and verification. The management was very helpful with team meetings on a monthly basis. The auditing was procedure was sometimes stressful but overall I enjoyed my time and the people I worked with
Amazing group of Medical Professionals. We have over 30 contracts with Emergency Room Hospitals within the state of Texas. I had the privilege to support this team and truly loved my job. It was a pleasure to come to work everyday and I really meant that.
FNP-BC (Current Employee) – Akron, OH – December 12, 2017
Difficult to balance family life with schedule. Shifts are all over the place and they over work the APPs. It can be a tough gig. They do not pay vacation days. They say you can make your own schedule but you really can’t
I loved it at US Acute Care Solutions.. They really care about their employees and the balance of work life and family. it is a busy place to work but everyone works as a team and gets things done. and the time goes by quickly each day. I enjoyed it because there was always plenty to do...
Some departments are well organized and keep things up to date, while others are so understaffed that things become unorganized and potential problems are not addressed until it becomes urgent and more work is required to fix the issue later than it would have been to fix it preemptively.
Fast paced, excellent environment to hone clinical skills

Credentialed Medical Language Specialist (Current Employee) – From home. – May 30, 2017
Fast paced job. A typical day is to sign in to the my primary account and transcribe or edit jobs as the are fed through the que. Turn around time is crucial to get the job completed and back to the client in the time frame required. This job requires 99% accuracy as mistakes impacts patient care, so it is crucial that one concentrates 100% of the time. My typical day begins at 12:30 p.m. and ends between 9:00 and 9:30 p.m. Clearing out my primary account and then moving to secondary accounts.
Doing medical transcription is a daily learning experience as you absorb a vast amount of medical knowledge as you transcribe regarding diagnoses, medications, treatments, etc. and, since I have done this job on and off for a total of 20 years, I have gained a vast amount of medical knowledge in those terms.
I a very good working relationship with my manager. She knows that I do my job and she does not have to "watch over" me. The management overall of the company makes sure there is ongoing training available for their employees and opportunities.
I think the hardest part of the job is when volumes are low. There is nothing anyone can do about that!
The most enjoyable part of the job is I love what I do.
Certified Coder (profee) (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CO – May 3, 2017
A great company to work for. Great management, good bunch of employees. Unfortunately, ATD Resources no longer exists, having merged with USACS, and our entire Colorado staff was laid off. Consequently, I have no experience with USACS.
