Compensation Best Practices Toolkit (Panel Discussion)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many changes within the transcription industry have affected wages dramatically. A group of managers and other industry leaders formed a task force this year to address the many issues that impact transcription pay such as 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, and QA impact on pay. 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 outlined.  

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn how to evaluate various pay models and determine the impact of each on your organization or MTSO.  
  2. Learn how different text platforms or speech engines may impact your pay model and how to improve your staff’s performance through process improvement and staff involvement.
  3. Learn how to sell your ideas to upper management.
