      Tele outfit sweatshop with poor leadership and low pay is the word on the street. Although, admittedly, good leadership (in a lot of groups these days) is going the way of the T-rex, it seems.

    The problem is not the XYZ telerad sweatshop you join. 
    Problem is what is your next career move is after you move on. 
    Credentialing in any group, hospital, billing network, imaging center, etc. will be a nightmare.

      I think credentialing would have been a problem in the past, for sure. But, going forward, I am not sure how much it will be. Simply because there is just such a BIG shortage that is worsening each year. Hope I am wrong but, if I would bet heavily that if you are fast and decent these days, you will have a job somewhere (and probably a good one).

        Please elaborate. If one was considering a part-time job to keep their skills up working from anywhere in the world, say 50 to 60 hours per month.

        Let’s say it’s a 1099 job where you would get 10 to 20 state licenses and be credentialed in a few hundred hospitals.

        If you to leave that job and look for another one how would this be hard or easy?

    Telerad company based out of Georgia.  Maybe a suburb of Atlanta.
     
    I don’t think they are a big telerad company like a vRad, StatRad, Direct or Vision, but could be wrong.
     
    I do recall seeing their booth at RSNA this past year or 2021, can’t recall.  It was on the periphery of the other small booths and it looked sad.  Kind of lonely.

        This group has people overseas read and create reports and you basically sign them off for billing. Horrible precedent for our industry. Pay per rvu is the lowest of any tele group because they have to pay the overseas folk too
        They basically took whats happening in family med with NPs and expanded it to radiology. Would recommend against working with them both for financial and liability reasons

        Also they charge you to use MModal and lease the computer if you need one

          Tele is best done when you are financially independent or if all the jobs where you live are crap RP jobs. Otherwise dont do it

            Sounds like the perfect fit then.
            Also its killer deal if you can work overseas / geoarbitrage to a nicer AND cheaper lifestyle while earning a US radiologist’s salary.

                  Father and daughter run this group, when I pursued the web site out of curiosity.
                  That alone has to be a nightmare.

                    Yikes. I wouldn’t work for a “family-owned” company unless I’m part of that family. Qualified people get pushed to the side because the leadership stays in the family.

                      Yes. Not good. You have to pay for your own workstation as well as your own powerscribe subscription! Have to pay your paycheck back to them as well or have it deducted if your RVUs aren’t up to snuff.

          pay is extremely low like 60% of average.  they take a 40% cut. They justify it by the 50% increase in productivity by having these overseas rads pre-read the cases.  The overseas radiologists looking at your studies only is for MRI/CT though. If you get swamped with xray US there is no way you make up that productivity. I passed, since there is no reason not to get paid full price with my regular productivity.

            So I would say that’s a pretty great deal for the overseas rad no? You get paid a prelim fee which is 80 or 85 cents of the dollar of the final read, you put in a short line for the dictation, and you’re living in such a place where your cost of living is 1/3 of that in the US. I know which side of that I’d like to be on.

              Agree, If everything is cost of living….I would be living in a no personality small town in Texas in US or an unknown small town in Thailand, far away from the airport.
               
              But, for some of us….culture, politics, food, environment, sports/ recreation opportunities, pollution levels, education access for our kids, our family ties matter a lot…and willing to pay a premium for it. 
               
              Probably a balance would be good.

                Sounds like I’m reading a 1984 novel
                Because those are some of the things I’d love to avoid and are some of the worst attributes in the States today

                  I would prefer small town Thailand to a red US state btw.

                  Although I need to be more fair Americans don’t really travel so assume everything is better in America. I was looking at a list of the safest countries and the United States didn’t appear even in the top 70. I do agree that many of the things in the 1990s the United States used to excel at are no longer the case but people are still stuck in that ancient mindset 30 years ago, again if you never leave the country you assume what you believe 30 years ago is true today.

                  Community and family ties are extremely important, but the rest of the stuff it’s even a bit comical to say it.

                    And therein lies the problem people are more concerned about red versus blue instead of focusing on things that really matter like family and community. And on those fronts I’ve been extremely impressed with the focus on the social and leisure and community aspects of life outside of the West. So much so that I am happy taking a huge pay cut in order to put myself in that environment.

                      You can find such a community in any Blue state in US that you are looking in a foreign country. I work part time and travel all over the world. Always feel better coming back home. 
                       
                      You need to travel within US more.

                      Yea, and in blue states, you can see your taxes rise while pension systems fail, police don’t respond to crime, homelessness rise, and overall collapse of civilization. That sounds awesome.

                      That sounds like cultural enrichment. Pinnacle of civilization and progress, and you need 300k a year to live a middle class life. Who wouldn’t want that?

                      Can you honestly say you are proud of ANY of the politics of the United States as of late? Red or Blue
                      Family members of differing political views can’t even get together at a dinner and have a civil discussion anymore
                      I think both sides have nothing to be proud of in their cities
                      As far as culture, English-language tinder, IG, snapchat, has zombified people ages 25 and under and anyone born today in that environment is screwed. As a parent you think you will just overpower all of that and your kids won’t be influenced by their environment (those screens etc.) but I highly disagree on that one
                      I’ve met and dated around the world and even people who are addicted to social media and the phone screens outside of the West, the material is not to the same level of debauchery and dumbing people down, so their character isn’t affected to the same extent I’ve found, I speak from direct personal experience here not reading things on the internet.
                      You are also paying for your sons and daughters to go to college, the US system of colleges that is getting more whacked and bizarre and the quality of the education gets worse by the year while the price goes up. I guess I now understand the pressure to keep making so much money, but what quality are you getting out of it? Hmm
                      I’ve lived/been to 30+ countries and lived in 6 cities in the USA, English-language culture is the issue not the city you are in imo
