Many changes have occurred within the transcription industry that have affected wages dramatically.  A group of managers and other industry leaders formed a task force earlier this year to address the many issues that impact transcription pay:  differences in transcription platforms and associated technical issues, staff skill sets, difference in work environments, patient acuity mix, lack of staff training, speech editing versus traditional transcription, difference in pay models, QA impact on pay, etc.  We also reviewed new emerging roles with implementation of EHRs, and how best to pay.  This session will include an overview of the Compensation Best Practices toolkit and how to address pay issues within your own organization or MTSO.  The toolkit includes best practices for different settings and the impact of various pay models on those settings.   Tips for evaluating the impact of your technical systems and your staff skills sets on various pay models are also included.
