IME Transcription Is Our Specialty

Every medical transcription service will tell you, "Sure, we can do that too!" when it comes to forensic and expert witness reports:

  • IMEs
  • Peer reviews
  • Addendum reports
  • Medical record reviews
  • Multispecialty panel exams
  • … and others.

However, IMT isn't just any medical transcription service.  We thoroughly understand the specialized needs of the medical claims community:

  • Reports must be of the highest possible quality to stand up in court.
  • Expert witnesses need to be able to locate information quickly in front of a judge.
  • Top-quality IMEs can lead to more lucrative referrals for both panel companies and experts.
  • Reports can be complicated and lengthy, so busy physicians and specialists may not be able to dictate in a single recording session.

Whether you perform independent medical examinations on a regular basis or just once in a while, leave it to the experts when it comes to producing high-caliber documents from your dictation that will help you to shine as a respected professional and help your clients get the compensation they deserve.

    Chris M. from Ohio

    Transcription Experience:  20 years
    Education:  Andrews School (2003)
    Favorite Specialties:  Neurosurgery, neurology, and orthopedics
    Brief Bio:  A lot of the work I've done in the past had been clinic work, but I did have the opportunity to do some workers' comp/IME reports, which were always very interesting to me.  That is what drew me to IMT.  I have been an MT from my home for 16+ years as I raised my three children as a single parent and now have the joy of helping to raise my grandson.  Whenever possible, I like taking my dog for a walk in a nearby park and spending time with my grandson.

    “What gets lost in the big MTSOs is a sense of camaraderie and teamwork.  I love working with IMT where I'm treated as a person and not a machine.”

      Who We Are

      Independent Medical Transcription, Inc. (IMT), got its start in Seattle, Washington, in the year 1994.  Our corporation president, Gerri Newman, entered the medical field as a solo transcriptionist for a single physician's office, working under the name "Executive Assistance."  With support from a colleague, Gerri soon took on two IME panel companies as clients, discovered the world of independent medical examinations, and became an enduring member of the claims community.

      After further growth requiring the contracting of additional transcriptionists, IMT was incorporated in Washington State in April of 2003 and then in September of 2016 in Florida.  As of 2020, IMT employs three full-time adminis­trative staff members and works with 16 medical transcriptionists averaging 18.2 years of transcription experience and encompassing numerous medical specialties.

      Our corporation president herself is an experienced MT who knows the industry inside and out, being capable of identifying and handling problems before they enter anyone else's radar, all the while treating her ICs¹ and employees with respect and compensating them well for their expertise and hard work.

      How We Do What We Do

      IMT believes in strict attention to detail, over-the-top customer service, and dignifying all those who help keep our business thriving.  While never neglecting our meticulous requirements for grammar, formatting, and deadlines, we strive to always remain professional, personable, and approachable.  We work hard to communicate clearly and efficiently between our clients and transcriptionists so that all know what is required and expected in order to do our jobs well and get your reports done on time.

      We also pride ourselves on the fact that we are not a behemoth MTSO² that ships your dictation to offshore contractors at the lowest possible rate (resulting in a commensurate level of quality).  Rather, if you have a special project that carries a high level of complexity or a particularly tight deadline, or if you require urgent assistance with any report issue you may be having, Gerri and her team will be available to work directly with you and our MTs to get the matter resolved to your satisfaction.

      Why Customers Keep Coming Back

      Simply by holding to the above standards, IMT has built a sterling reputation among forensic physicians and IME panel companies throughout the Pacific Northwest.  Based on this foundation, we are now working nationwide, with administrative staff and medical transcriptionists working from every time zone in the contiguous United States.  We are dedicated to helping all of our associates continue to grow, from aiding our MTs to develop their skill sets and become ever more adept at handling complex IME reports to assisting our physicians and experts see an increase in lucrative referrals because of the high-quality reports we help them produce.
