Focused Action Forums

Medical Transcription Coalition Membership, Organization, and Structure

Posted by Moderator MT Coalition on October 30, 2017 at 11:30 PM

The Medical Transcription Coalition (MTC) formed to organize efforts at improving conditions for home-based and other workers in MTSOs in areas including performance measurement, working conditions, compensation and benefits.  There is difficulty in organizing workers to collectively bargain due to lack of access to each other and/or collective bargaining representation.

While there are other web sites and organizations that offer forums to discuss the above conditions among other varied topics, this site offers a focused means to organize through online networking and conferencing to share ideas and strategies to improve conditions in MTSOs.

Membership in the MT Coalition is free.  We volunteer our time and talents.

In the future, if the members choose to engage in work group regulatory activity, or form bargaining units or cooperatives, fund raising, grants, and/or fees could be determined at that time, separate from MTC membership.

Please review the other topic areas in the focused action forums section below for your input.

If you have suggestions for MT Coalition membership, organization, and structure, and/or wish to volunteer in specific activities, please share your thoughts and ideas in the comments above (or via the contact form).

Just joined here. Hard to believe there is so little activity! Please see my comment on Improved Working Conditions forum. Also want to add - I took the liberty also of contacting Lee DeOrio of For The Record yesterday. Lee seems to be very much interested in pursuing assistance in an investigatoin as to the reason for the considerable drop in line rates over just a 1 to 2 month period - across the board for all the MTSOs and has asked if I know of any other MTs/MEs who would be willing to come forward with on the record statements such as I have. I informed Lee I would inquire and obtain names, contact info with permission from those individuals. If anyone is interested in such, please email me with your contact info so I may forward that to Lee. We are all in the same boat here and any help will be appreciated. AHDI does not appear to be our friend.

Thank you for posting. A contact at FTR would certainly be helpful. Hopefully, people will reach out and share their stories to expose the MTSOs who shamefully reduce rates. It has not happened to me, but I know I am not immune to this happening.
