    Confused Medical Transcription?

    Advertisements
    Is there anyone here that does medical transcription from home? I'm considering taking a course on it and trying to work from home but I'm curious how hard it is to find work and if there are certain online courses that are more respected than others.


    Interested in all advice I can get! TIA

    I've been considering it also since my medical issues have been preventing me from workig outside of my home. I have a few friends who do it here and they all love it and say it's a pretty easy job. I've never heard any of them complain about not having enough work, but they already choose to take on small loads so that mght be why. The courses can get a bit spendy, but MyCAA should help. Either way I think it's a great investment!

    Somebody I work with graduated from her program almost a year ago and hasn’t found a job yet. I’ve only talked to her about it briefly but she’s still at our job because she can’t find anything full time + with benefits.

    I'm less concerned about benefits because we already have private healthcare, but I would need full time. I wouldn't leave my full time job until I knew I could make what I needed in order to keep our household afloat. DH makes the majority of the money these days anyway, my income is like 1/4 of the household income.

    It kinda seems like a dying industry. The medical system I work at (University of California Health) doesn't use any medical transcriptionists at all, the Drs are all expected to enter everything themselves into the electronic health records. Medical coding & billing would be a more likely path, but I don't know if they allow work-from-home.

    That's my concern, the programs I was looking at say that you can use it for legal, closed captioning and medical so I'm wondering if it'd be diverse enough to be useful. I will look into coding and billing as well, thanks!

    My aunt works in medical coding and billing, her company has been dealing with lay offs over the last few years. Several of the departments in her company were closed and the jobs sent oversees, just a few people remained to check work. That's my only experience with the field though, maybe it isn't widespread.
