Who or What is Medword?

Do you ... ever wonder who or what is Medword?

The name Medword and its logo is a registered Canadian trade-markMedword is a company originally based in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, & now located in Chilliwack, B.C. Chilliwack is approximately 1.25 hours east of Vancouver, B.C. Since 1989 we have been providing medical transcription services to physicians in the Lower Mainland of B.C., Canada. Medword is a private, family-owned small business. Medword's office is not open to the public and there is no retail store on the premises. Like many other leading-edge companies, all our sales & services are only available via the web. Medword's main sites are Medword Medical Transcription, MT Gab Discussion Forum, and The Medword List directory of health, science, and medical transcription links.

Medword considers itself a "grassroots" company. We are an active company, performing medical transcription daily. We started providing helpful information to medical transcriptionists via the web back in 1995. (Back then, we were only one of two medical transcription sites that could be found when searching the Internet.) Although our company started in September, 1989, and we had pages on the web under a personal space, we didn't get our own domain,, until November 12, 1996. Our mandate for our web activities from the start was to offer information and resources of practical use and value via the web to MTs and other visitors, but without charge. We know from experience the difficulties in starting a small company, performing medical transcription for the first time, integrating new technology into a business, and the frustration encountered in finding relevant information.

Times are changing on the web every day. The ever increasing cost to be listed in search engines or pay for search engine positions is making it virtually impossible for smaller sites such as to be found. Despite this trend, Medword still offers access to all areas of our sites without charge. This includes our MT Gab Medical Transcription Forum, a state-of-the art board populated by a friendly, welcoming, non-judgmental virtual community, and The Medword List directory of health, science, and medical transcription links.

How does Medword manage to operate sites without any charge to visitors? Medword has tried to avoid outside advertising. We've always "footed the bill" ourselves. With continually rising costs since 1995 however, we have to promote & sell products found in our own online store.

Even with the modest income we derive from various sources, we still have to dig into our own pockets to operate & maintain our sites. Without the generosity of visitors to the Medword site, especially medical transcriptionists, we may not be able to continue our presence on the web.

Because of all the e-mails that pass through our system, we could have a legal, lucrative revenue source from selling lists of e-mail addresses of people interested in sites like ours - called a "niche market." Niche market lists can provide substantial revenue for the provider because an advertiser would already know the main interest of the people on the list. However, unlike many companies, Medword does not sell, rent, lease, or share e-mail addresses with third parties, except if you purchase a product through our store. We want our visitors to feel welcome and comfortable on all our sites. We do not want to make money from their e-mail addresses. We don't like our e-mail addresses being added to lists without our permission, so we certainly would never do this to our visitors.
