About Our Company

We are OPEN and ready to serve our clients, present and future!  Read our COVID-19 update here.

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.

Other Experience:  Transcription supervisor; account manager
Brief Bio:  I have done IME work for 3+ years now, touching briefly on it before then.  I also have supervisory experience as being an account manager for multiple clients and supervising 15+ transcriptionists at a time.  This included the hiring of new transcriptionists and also doing all of their training and performing QA on all of their work until they were ready to be released on their own.  I recently obtained my bachelor of science degree in health informatics, during which I learned much about HIPAA regulations and guidelines.  I have a loving husband and two awesome “kids” ages 18 and 23.  We are definitely animal lovers, and we have three dogs and a pet snake at the moment.  We always have a variety of pets in our home to care for.
