PIA Press Release

Two medical transcription companies to open in Davao City

by Prix D Banzon

Davao City (5 September) -- Lizabel Holganza, president of Medical Transcription Center (MTC) said she is opening up a company for medical transcription outsourcing.

Although she did not yet reveal the name of the transcription company she is opening with some partners from Manila and Davao, she said that they intend to start operation before the end of September this year.

The other company is still working on some documentary requirements and hopefully will soon open here, she said.

She said their company will be a small one even as she said that they are encouraged to put up one because of the huge demand for the work.

Holganza whose school already had its first graduates said that 35 percent of their students are already working and that one of her graduates who was hired first as medical transcriptionist is now elevated as editor.

She said this is a good sign because their graduates are capable of doing the job.

"It is also a good sign that Dabawenyos are learning to appreciate this type of work," she said.

Although she said a lot of independent contractors (ICs) are operating in Davao City roughly about 15 of them and doing good business here.

She even cited one contractor who was able to convince another member of the family to be part of the business because of the increasing clients that they have.

The ICs based on informal talks she said can book clients mostly in the US and gets paid at six to eight cents per line. And they can for a month earn as much as P30,000 to P50,000 net.

She said the IT really is a growing industry and a lot of projects is coming up like on legal transcription and broadcast transcription.

She said these are areas where people can look into and match their skills if not learn the craft and become a transcriptionist.

On the other hand she said that what is good when you are a registered business and be part of the industry sector is that they will be taken cared of by the ICT sector in terms of continuing education.

The sector she said can provide upgraded skills through training as well as learn new techniques and models to improve the craft. (PIA XI) [top]
