Talking PMSI - Hospital Transcription (Unresearched)

Here is the webpage link: Professional Medical Services, Inc. - MT Requirements

PMSI is seeking MTs with 4+ years' hospital transcription experience for acute care accounts. Part-time and full-time positions are available. Subcontractors only--excellent compensation!

MTs must have:
- Lanier VoiceWrite EX transcription station
- Two POTS (plain old telephone service) phone lines (toll-free numbers provided)
- Meditech experience (please specify versions and number of years' experience)

MTs use regular phone lines (DSL/ADSL lines are incompatible), dial in to hospital's Lanier for dictation, and dial in on the second line to transcribe within Meditech (DOS-based data-entry software). Meditech experience is strongly advised, but others with outstanding test results and skills will be considered.

U.S. MTs only.

If you meet the above requirements and are interested in more information, please send your resumé to: [email protected]

Pharmacology - Including willingness/ability to check dosages to assist dictators and ensure accurate reports
Research skills - Use of references and Internet searches for addresses, new drug/procedure names, etc.
Working knowledge of specified word processing programs – Multiple clients, many formats/procedures – MTs must be flexible and able to format documents correctly
Experience in multiple specialties – ENT, orthopedic, psychiatric, and substance abuse transcription beneficial.

MTs must possess these characteristics:

PMSI's rate of compensation is normally per 65-character line or per report, depending on client preference and type of account. Our rates rank among the highest industry-wide. MTs are independent contractors.

Prospective MTs will be required to take a written test, as well as transcribe a dictation file. Candidates must be experienced and independent workers.
