With several transcription companies setting up their base in India, medical transcription has become a lucrative and feasible option for those looking for home-based careers
Vatsala Bhatt, a nutritionist in a well-known health club in Bangalore, quit her job two years ago when she had a baby. Unable to move out, she started looking for
a home-based career. She found the perfect option - home-based medical transcription.
It worked out well for Vatsala, who now works for about six hours at home as home based medical transcriptionist for US-based Acusis India Ltd. and makes Rs 28,000 per month or so. She also gets time to spend with her daughter
Medical transcription from Home: A flexible shift - Easy Way Out
"EASY WAY OUT: All one needs to become a medical transcriptionist are good listening skills and typing ability."
Aparna D. is a medical transcriptionist who works from home. At 4 a.m. she wakes up and works in the wee hours of the morning, taking a break from 7.30 to 8.30 a.m. to send her son to school and then gets back to work listening to doctors' recommendations and typing them out in a file.
Files are sent to her by a Mumbai-based company and she earns Rs. one rupee, ten paise for every line. And when its time for many to swipe their attendance at the office, Aparna logs out at 10 a.m. to spend the rest of her time as she likes.
Aparna who took to home transcription three-and-a-half years after working in a company finds this arrangement gives her ample time to take care of her home and earn as well. "Earlier I used to work for eight hours and make Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 10,000,now I am earning around Rs. 15,000 to 20,000 per month on my own," says Aparna.
This flexi work has also enabled her to pursue her passion as a voice-over artist on a television channel. She says many Hyderabad-based companies are ready to give work to home transcriptionists.
