One of my pet peeves is the sending of our valuable information, not to mention work – over seas. I have spoken about it, blogged about it and posted about it.
I don’t want any of my information sent outside of the US, but especially my medical information – it has everything from my social history to my family history to my identifying information. I have urged everyone to check with their doctors to see if they are aware of their dictations being sent off shore, and have even stated that many hospitals and doctors do not know that the work is being sent off shore. They send it to a large company here and then they send it off shore without ever disclosing it. many even touting USA only.
I got the following email. I get them often but this one just got under my skin. Read it carefully. See what actually happens here in the US and what is sent off shore. This to me is scary. Our personal information, our jobs, and for some the reason to continue their education. Why? Because they do not wish to travel to China, India or the Phillipines to work.
Here is the body of the email. Nothing has been altered. I have however removed the contact info but if you really want to buy it – you can Google and find it. I am not interested. CLK TRANSCRIPTION DOES NOT OFF SHORE ANYTHING EVER!
Highly Profitable Mid-Atlantic Medical Transcription Business
Opportunity Executive Summary: Highly Profitable and efficiently run MTSO started in 1991, serving small to medium size hospitals, clinics, and practices. In 1998 owner went to the Philippines and set up, what is now, the longest running Philippine MT operation to do all the MTSO’s work. At an all-in cost of 6.7 CPL, this operation handles virtually everything to do with the MTSO. The US operation consists of the owner, his wife and a part time employee. The entire US operation requires approximately 15-20 hrs of work per week, answering calls from new clients etc. Most everything to do with day to day operations takes place in the Philippines. The owners desire to retire creates a truly outstanding opportunity to own one of most profitably run MTSOs we’ve seen.
