medical language specialists Introduction

That's me, Debbie, to your left.  Read about me here.  I've been working on MyMT since about 2005.  It's been challenging, for sure.  The bits and pieces of a dynamic website for a poor medical transcriptionist?  Nearly impossible, but I pushed on.  I am open and available and would love to get to know you, so don't ever hesitate to contact me.  I'm friendly, funny, creative, sarcastic, honest, persevering, and a little crazy.  I don't follow the crowd much, and that tends to raise the hairs on some.  I am a working medical transcriptionist currently transcribing for an MTSO, still fortunate enough to be doing straight transcription (I keep running from VR) for an acute care hospital in Arkansas.  I want to contribute to our profession.  I'd like to think of MyMT as, "The People's Choice."  As a worker in this industry, I have barely survived.  We need to do something about that.  So, why is there a fee to join MyMT?  Read about that here.

Over the last two years, we just accomplished something huge with The Joint Commission.  This involved the collective efforts of many, as described in the post linked in this paragraph.  It is my personal belief, with my background, that TJC is the organization that can provide the enforcement of our efforts such that we can turn things around in our industry.  I invite you to read about it here.  If you want to cut to the chase, head to the bottom of the post.  It's exciting stuff.  But, we have now had a setback, and The Joint Commission has essentially refused to have a meaningful conversation with us about the healthcare documentation industry.  I am currently working to develop a new petition and could really use the medical transcription community to help out with a MyMT membershipo.

If you're new to MyMT, or considering a MyMT Membership (we sure hope you join us), this page will help you get started.  If you want to hear what some think about me and what we are up to here, read on.

 Project Joint Commission

medical transcriptionWe believe that The Joint Commission should develop quality improvement standards in the area of healthcare documentation and that this will be one step towards stopping the out-of-control and unmanaged activities and behaviors in our industry.  On 04/27/2015, Dr Wyatt, Medical Director at The Joint Commission, heard our plea and wrote a very important article regarding the stand we have been taking by way of Dr Wyatt speaking at ACE in Vegas 2014, MyMT Petition, and constant contact with agents at The Joint Commission x2 years now.  This is important, really important, to our industry.  Read about it hereIt's a really big deal, Everyone!  Subsequent to this article, The Joint Commission told us they would, however, NOT further engage in a discussion with us about medical transcription quality management standards, but we aren't giving up.  Watch for a new petition to be developed in November 2015.
