Most schedules do include one weekend day.

We embraces the speech recognition environment. As such an MLS will get both speech and text work. We do not routinely limit the flow or volume of these. An MLS may get one speech job then a text job and these must be transcribed as received without rejecting or cherry-picking. When an MLS receives a text job on their computer, they are looking at an MS Word document with headers, footers, and in many cases template headings already defined. They follow the guidelines of the account and transcribe the document. When an MLS receives a speech job on their computer, it will look much the same as a text job; however, words will be pre-populated on the screen (looking like a draft of the document). The MLS will listen 100% to the note (same as if transcribing traditionally) and will edit/correct the document as they go along. The end result in speech should be the same as it would be in text when the MLS completes it. This is not a QA position. It is a production position with the MLS being paid a per-line rate. Almost all accounts we have are speech recognition accounts.
MLS is expected to adhere to a specific schedule. Time off and flexibility can be requested in advance, but unless otherwise arranged, the employee is expected to work this routine schedule. Full time requires a 40-hour scheduled week with a minimum of 35 hours actual production.
Production time is tracked off the technology system and monitors the time an MLS is actually in the document working (hands on the keyboard or foot on the pedal). If an MLS is idle in excess of 4 minutes the time stops tracking. They must remain actively working (unless taking a break and are logged out of the system). If researching, give it 3 minutes. If unable to find, leave a blank and move on. Not only does this method keep an MLS more productive, but it is utilized as our remote method of “punching the clock” and is monitored daily to ensure consistent and timely coverage for our facilities.
Part time is available to employees at a minimum of 20 hours weekly (maximum 24 hrs). Benefits are not available to part time employees.
Definition of Line count
We are proud to state that we have never adjusted or varied the line count whatsoever of what is paid to our MLS, and we believe we are the only company that can state this. Most MLS look only at the rate they are earning per line, but there can be a significant variance and many MLSOs hide lines to build in their margin.
65-character line count including spaces, tokens, as well as an additional 5 lines per document to compensate for the demographic and carbon information that would otherwise appear in a header/footer. Tokens are category headers (past medical history, history of present illness etc) that are inserted whether the MD dictates or not from the speech technology. Most companies do not pay for headers, footers or tokens in a report.
The MLS is responsible for their home-office environment: high-speed Internet connectivity, a compatible computer with MS Word or Office and a USB foot pedal are needed to work as a medical transcriptionist and are not provided by our company. We will provide and support the platform software and support it, but ultimately the responsibility to have equipment in good working order is yours.
Compensation: DOE. Paid by the line.
