If you don't mind my asking, what company uses it for radiology?  I have radiology experience and have been looking for this type of work. 
About MedRemote platform. sm
Anyone know who what company uses this and if they are hiring? I love that platform and I just cannot find a company that uses it, except for one, but had to turn it down because I do not do radiology.

I left my email if you want to reply to me privately and if you know of any company using this. Thanks.
They use MedRemote and Chart Matrix. nm
I love MedRemote! Very user friendly.
Never used CM.
Yes, they're still using it, and it's still awful.  Slow, clunky, cumbersome....in the dark ages.  It is a database program, not a dedicated word processor. 
I am on Chartmatrix. My supe's name starts with J

You can use your own PC with ChartMatrix. nm
I am trying to start work for Webmedx using ChartMatrix.  Had installation and 2 hour training and have not been able to transcribe anything.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I keep getting popup blocking even with the blocker turned off.  Is there an actual manual for ChartMatrix?
Thanks for the replies.  I have notified the office and will call them again today.
Chartmatrix is going away. nm.
Can I get some opinions on ChartMatrix. Is it me? Am I just not getting it? I absolutely HATE it! Are there some of you who like it, and if so why?
ChartMatrix: The Nightmare Lives on! My suggestion to you---run, run for you life and don't look back. You deserve a better platform that will make you money. It's not your fault, your cheap MTSO will not upgrade to a normal MT platform. You are wasting your time and, no, you are ok, that platform just sucks big time!
ChartMatrix - No
Webmedx on the ChartMatrix side does not use eScription. I don't know about the Enterprise side.
On ChartMatrix...
Normals are inserted directly from the platform, Expander provided by the company is Shorthand, many word-based commands, platform has keyboard commands for nearly every function needed to transcribe (can only think of one or two functions that require a mouse point and click).  Very MT friendly.  Can use your mouse too, but it's more productive to keep your hands on the keyboard.
Chartmatrix MT

Just curious. Do you use the shortcut keys?
Is there anybody out there using ChartMatrix for TransHealth?
Do you have trouble keeping a connection?  Is it generally easy or hard to use?
ChartMatrix does (Webmedx). nm
I am very productive on ChartMatrix
Tons of normals on my account, plenty of work.  Good structure to their incentive plan.  No complaints here.  I don't mind using ShortHand at all.  In fact, I prefer it to an integrated expander.
ChartMatrix at WebMedX

Could anyone tell me how ChartMatrix is to work on doing acute care at WebMedX?    TIA

chartmatrix vs enterprise
Anybody know the difference in these 2 platforms and which is better?
chartmatrix two thumbs up
I don't know about enterprise but I have worked on dozens of different platforms over the years and I do know that I REALLY like chartmatrix.
And have you worked on Chartmatrix?
Let me tell you, you could go from all lahlah I love my job to hating it in the same day. That platform is one of the worst I've ever seen. It has me looking for another job. People leaving left and right because they hate the platform. They're going to lose good employees over this as they put more and more people on it.

You also need to know much depends on your STM. I have seen some in a situation with one STM requesting more accounts, and it won't be given because of trying not to run the other MTs out of work. However, if you're with an STM who has a different set of accounts, then you might have the 20 you mentioned. Don't be so quick to discount the people posting here. You don't know their individual situations. They can be level 4 acute care MTs offering to do everything and still not be given more accounts. This was my experience.
I have not worked on ChartMatrix.....
I was told before I came to Webmedx to ask for the Enterprise platform because it was the better of the two.

Something was mentioned about combining the two but I don't know if it will be Enterprise or CM as the final outcome.

I know everyone's situation is different, and maybe I was a little too quick to jump on the original poster, but I have the philosophy that life is 20% what happens to you and 80% what you do about what happens to you. In other words, I see so much unhappiness with MTs lately that I wanted to encourage everyone to make every possible change that they could to improve their situation. Maybe that is not the right approach, but it certainly couldn't hurt. I may be talking out of the other side of my face later on down the road, but I hope not because I really do enjoy what I do.
I work on Chartmatrix and use my own. nm
ChartMatrix - my opinion

I was not that fond of the old ChartMatrix, but now that they've upgraded the platform I think it's great.  No complaints here.  A couple of quirky things, but then again, every platform I've worked on had a few quirky things.

Webmedx/ChartMatrix VR
There are 2 sides of Webmedx. Chartmatrix and Enterprise. On Chartmatrix side you DO have the pulldown menus for headings and subheadings, and it is does slow you down.
Enterprise and ChartMatrix
I only work on the Enterprise side, so I can't tell you about the ChartMatrix side. I think Enterprise is about the easiest system I have come across as far as ease of use, as long as you don't mind using your cntrl and alt keys a lot (you do not have to get headers from a drop down list). I don't know what you mean by demos, but we have normals (both physician and MT created) that we can insert by using cntrl N to pick from a list or cntrl M to enter the code. I use ShortHand with no problems on this platform. They also allow instant text, though I have never used this program, so don't know how it works.

This is not a word based program. I have worked on a lot of different platforms, and this is one of the easier ones IMHO.
Chartmatrix or Enterprise?
Enterprise vs. Chartmatrix at WMX
my STM sent out a notice that said Chartmatrix work was going to become available if we were willing to switch to that platform and had problems running out of work on Enterprise.  before I respond I thought it might be a good idea if any chartmatrix MTs out there gave their 0.02 about the platform and the amount of work that's really available.  how do things look on your side?  tia
B/c there haven't been any except for ChartMatrix sm
entirely weekend schedule.
So you do work on Chartmatrix?
You're NOT making that much more in lines with the new ISR?
Either program is compatible with ChartMatrix. nm
Does TransHealth still use ChartMatrix software? nm
My production is great with ChartMatrix...sm

1. Connect to the VPN  - that takes all of 30 seconds.  Connect just once per day.

2.  Log onto voicewave player, again, 30 seconds, a one-time process.

3.  Log into ChartMatrix. (once per day).  Hit new report.

Header information autopopulates.  Click the transcribe button and type away.

I think it's a very MT-friendly platform.  It's not perfect, but what is?  And now that TH restructured their pay, with bonus lines and differential, I'm very happy.

To each his own.

MTs at WMX....is ChartMatrix productive platform?
Any information would be great!  Is pay okay???
So you are on the ChartMatrix platform and radiology. sm
No wonder the difference! From what I hear, those of us on Enterprise seem to run out much less often.
Absolutely horrible. I would not take a QA or MT job on Chartmatrix. nm
2 platforms, Enterprise and Chartmatrix. sm
I only use Enterprise. It is somewhat Word-based. It's quite easily to use, although it do use some improvement, like all things I suppose. It can be slow, but that doesn't happen as much as it used to. ShortHand is the expander. Hate it. You can use IT. Demos depend on the account. You generally don't have to do too much with them, at least not on my 5 accounts.

It's an okay platform, not nearly as good as DQS, but I'll take the downgrade in platform and the upgrade in company any day. Good luck to you. :)
Maybe you aren't aware, the Chartmatrix sm
side has nothing BUT small hospitals.  If you are lucky enough to have large hospitals you couldn't be working on my side of the company.
I like ChartMatrix. Have worked on it for a couple of years...sm

There are 2 versions, the one they've been using for the past few years and a new one they're rolling out that can also be used with ASR.  I like the new one a lot better than the old one, but the old one was pretty good.  There are a lot more Keystrokes with the new ChartMatrix.

I have not worked on Enterprise, so I cannot comment on that.  Sorry.

I like ChartMatrix. Sound quality is fine. Not sure what problems they used to have...sm
but things are working fine for me.
With TransHealth's main platform ChartMatrix, the spellcheck is integrated. nm
ChartMatrix (TransHealth) has archived/quick access to prior reports. nm

I always get answers to my emails at SPI Healthcare Documentation.
Thanks for the feedback! sm
Thanks so much for replying. The only downside I can see is that I need to purchase Word 2003 to work with their software and that's a bit of a financial stretch right now, but worth it in the long run, of course, if things work out well.

Thanks again! :)
appreciate the feedback, but looking
hopefully for someone working with them now or very recently.
Overhire, loads of ESLs, line count on some accounts hard to get. Prior posts comment on high cost of insurance.
Thank you. I appreciate the feedback. :) NM
Thanks to ALL for the feedback.
Thank you for the feedback.
I need full-time with benefits also.  I just don't want to spend the time testing if they don't offer employment status. Anywho, thank you much.
Any feedback on...

Any feedback on OSi Transcription Services?  I'm looking to get my foot in the door with a good company to work for.
