Years ago, I took the position that if someone accepts a job, at the rate of pay offered, they would be obligated to do their very best and not claim they aren’t paid enough to do a good job.

Medical transcription and employer nickel-and-dime tactics

I was reading the Los Angeles Times on Sunday and came across an interesting article that referenced an even more interesting report: Broken Laws, Unprotected Workers (PDF file).

Time for medical transcriptionists to hang up their keyboards?

Let me clarify that title: time for US-based medical transcriptionists to hang up their keyboards?

Two weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Cheryl Flanders, the owner of Productivity Talk. She wanted to know if I’d take over the site. We had a discussion and I ended up saying yes. I’m pretty excited about it, actually – and not just because it’s a shiny object. There’s a lot of information […]

What’s in a name? The two-step continues

If you take comfort in knowing that some things never change, you’ll get a lot of comfort from AHDI, the association that represents… whatever it is we do.

Medical records – good enough

I wrote a detailed post analyzing a discussion that took place in several places across the web, including the NEMT blog, Facebook and LinkedIn. Then, I decided it was all too complicated to follow. I’m just going to boil it down and include links at the end for those who want to go view the […]

When I acquired the Medical Transcription Desk (MT Desk), Elsevier sent me all the site files to do with as I wished. It appeared to me that nothing had been updated since they acquired the site five years previously, so I wasn’t quite sure what I ought to do with some of that stuff. MT […]
