To everyone out there who does not know me personally, my name is Dinelle Ashcraft. I have been employed with Orion Transcription for 6 years as a subcontractor working from home doing medical transcription. Bob and I opened the Domino Effect Rescue Ranch in December 2009, and have been self supportive through my income alone to provide for these animals each month. I have given every ounce of my income to this mission. Over this past year, medical transcription is very quickly changing over to voice recognition and becoming a dying trade. because of this, we have lost huge medical groups who no longer need our services because they have switched over to the newest technology, voice recognition, and now compose their medical records in house without the need of an outside service. This process started years ago, but has rapidly picked up speed most recently as more medical groups are making the switch. Since January of this year my income has steadily taken a fall losing hundreds of dollars each month that I once used to make almost making it impossible to stay above water. Today I noticed there were others in my medical pool doing my reports. I called the owner of the company that I work for with no answer. I checked my e-mail to find what I suspected, but certainly dreaded to ever see. Below is the letter I received from my current employer. Contract status‏ Orion Management To Dinelle Ashcraft Dinelle - This is a hard email to write because it means things are bad. You have always been a dedicated contractor and have provided Orion with your services for years. With all the loss of work, this is what my (small now) pool of MTs has become - all worth a lot to me and Orion. However, we have lost so much work, that I cannot keep everyone busy. I am having to let MTs know that I cannot currently continue to contract with them for their transcription services. I have done this thus far over the past several months with probably 15-20 MTs. Unfortunately, now I am having to do it with some that I really, really hate to lose. At this point, I have to give you a two-week notice on continuing your current contract with Orion. During the two weeks, you can certainly work as much as you would like, but the work will be pooled with some other MTs. If you choose not to accept this offer or find work elsewhere in the meantime, please let us know. I am very sorry to do this, but we have hit hard times and I just don't know what will ultimately come of it. All we can do is try to hang on and hope that the other side of all the EMR implementations will be decisions to use regular transcription for some portion of a patient's note. If anything changes for us in the future, know I will certainly contact you - if you are still available to work for us. In the meantime, I would like to recommend to you Allegiant Transcription Services, Professional Dictation Associates, Lee Perfect Transcription, and On-Time Transcription, who are all Emdat transcription companies. I will certainly provide you with an excellent recommendation. Regretfully, Darlene Duerr MT SUPPORT DESK Orion Transcription Services, Inc. (256) 417-6796 As a Christian, I trust that God will provide. I do know that now I must find sponsors or something very quickly to supplement our income. If you can help us out with a one-time gift or pledge to sponsor the animals with a monthly donation that would be GREAT. If you can donate directly to our feed store to help provide feed, this most definitely would be awesome. Wagon Wheel Feed: 352-799-8002 If you have fundraising ideas that you can pass on to help us raise money, this too would be very beneficial. If you have items to donate to our store that would help in raising funds for the ranch, please contact me. If you are a local business and would be willing to do a benefit for our rescue or allow us to set up and give rides to the public at your place of business, please contact us. If you are an individual who would like to hire the Domino Effect to come out and give horse rides and set up a petting zoo for your special event, please contact us. If your organization would like to hire us for your fall festival, please contact us. I will press forward and look to replace my income, either through scheduling us for events to raise money for the ranch or look for employment outside of the ranch. Please contact us with your ideas. We are open for your ideas. Thank you and God Bless you all for your support!!!
