About Our Company

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 four full-time adminis­trative staff members and works with 16 medical transcriptionists averaging 17.6 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.

Transcription Experience:  22 years
Education:  AA in Office Administration with transcription subspecialty
Brief Bio:  I was a transcriptionist/medical scribe for 26 orthopedic surgeons, assisting doctors for up to 90 patients per day. I then moved on to work for an optometrist and also worked as an auditor/proofreader for a busy orthopedic office. I enjoy traveling around the country together with my husband and our 13-year-old son and spending time at our lake house on the weekends.

“Working at IMT has been an absolute joy! I love the flexibility of working from home as an independent contractor and the freedom it allows me to still be a mom. The level of professionalism, dedication, and accuracy at IMT is unmatched, and I am blessed to be a part of their team!”
