IT and Bayscribe

You need to go to the IT website and download the newest upgrade. It's free and easy to do. That will enable you to use it with Bayscribe.

Re: Bayscribe
Yes! Yes! Yes. Go for it. You will not regret it.
I've worked with BayScribe for 18 months and LOVE it! Everything is on one screen, no toggling through screens between demographics, transcription, and copies.
MDI-MD -- Bayscribe
May I ask you how long it took you to learn Bayscribe? I haven't read anything bad about MDI-MD; they almost sound too good to be true. Or maybe it's just that there really ARE some good companies out there. It all looks SO overwhelming to me that I'm almost afraid to try it. Any encouraging words you can give would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
You can move through fields using the tab key. Alt D will bring up the doctor's roster.

Bayscribe - Help! sm

I just locked up my keyboard.  It works, except for with Bayscribe.  I'm half way through a long report.  Anybody with any ideas? 



It doesn't matter. I use the BayScribe platform too, has nothing to do with your LD.
Yes, Landmark uses Bayscribe, that is if they have any work!
Bayscribe is a lot like DQS. Don't particularly like either much! nm
is MUCH easier to use than DQS! No comparison!
I have heard this as well and am waiting for the recruiter to call me back as I am very interested. I have heard nothing bad at all about MDI-MD which is great!

I currently work on the Bayscribe platform and I absolutely love it!  It seems to be very MT friendly and I also get a great line count.  Hope this helps-

Is this a good platform to work on?
It's okay--I have worked with a lot worse. Pretty simple and easy to learn.  Doesn't slow you down in any way, I don't think.  
i like bayscribe too,
your cc list, adt, text area, QA comments, are all on one screen.

but i saw recently where about 3 companies were mentioned that use it, and i cannot find where i wrote them down.

its not perfect, but i think you can go pretty fast on it.
Try MDI-MD. They use Bayscribe
It's kind of a bare bones kind of platform, but I really like it. You are not slowed down by opening up a lot of windows for your demographics, transcription page, and copies. You can access your own reports, but as far as I know, no one else's. Hope that helps.
Do they use only Bayscribe? TIA

Does anyone know if Bayscribe will run with other transcription programs loaded on same computer???


Bayscribe is a lot faster than DocQscribe. It's very MT friendly. The only thing about it is that that spellchecker is...shall we say....quite anemic. Other than that, it's awesome.
I have worked on DQS and Bayscribe. There are certain features of DQS I like better (being able to insert a doctor's name into the report with a keystroke command, but overall Bayscribe is a lot easier to use.
IT and Bayscribe
Yes, I've had this happen. You have to be careful to spell the first word of the sentence after the period correctly or it sometimes won't capitalize. I'm still trying to figure out what causes this. I think it has something to do with backspacing too many times. This just started happening recently.
Why do you need them in Bayscribe?
the bayscribe Expander and work and my ShortHand works in whatever program I'm in, including Bayscribe.
If you have an internet account, you do not have to input any patient info. I've worked on ExText before, and I think BayScribe is faster because you don't have to wait for the pages to load. You just transcribe.
Bayscribe ?
I am being told that my Stedman's software is not compatible with Bayscribe.  Is there a program on Bayscribe that is comparable to Stedman's?  Is it true that the spellchecker does not identify mispelled words with underling or such?  Thanks

Sometimes you have to just reboot your computer.  If you keep having problems, I would check with the company not here. 

I've been with MDI for almost 4 years and have also worked on ExText. I like both programs. I think BayScribe is a good platform with all demographics, transcription, and cc's entered on one screen, which is probably my favorite thing about BayScribe. I do wish the spellchecker was better. You have to enter a lot yourself into it. BayScribe doesn't have as many bells and whistles as ExText, but to me it feels fast.
MDI-ID / Bayscribe
I use Bayscribe for a company other than MDI-MD and I use PC ShortHand also. No one had to download it into anything. I just brought it up and started typing and it automatically worked. However, I am not sure if all Bayscribe platforms are the same. I really like it and do not mind working with it.
I was hired by MDI-MD this week and am scheduled to have training this week. I am curious what your opinion would be regarding Bayscribe. I have heard the tech there can get your Expander (mine is PC Shorthand) to work with the Bayscribe software. Is this true? Also, can you use any CDs i.e., Stedman's references, at all? Overall, would like to know what your opinion is regarding Bayscribe. Thank you.
platform SUCKS BIG TIME!
How do you like working on BayScribe? I have always thought I would like to apply at MDI but not sure about BayScribe...is it difficult to learn? Can you make a good line count on it? Thank you.
My set up with tech support was about 10 minutes. Like the last person said, it's all in the manual anyway. Bayscribe is really straightforward. Doesn't have some of the whistles and bells of other platforms, but it's a snap to learn.

Okay, I know that Landmark and MDI-MD both use Bayscribe but I have heard other MTs say that both of those companies are frequently low on work.  Does anybody out there know of any other company that uses Bayscribe?  Thanks.

XP will work much better than Vista, I think.
Baycribe has to be downloaded from their website. The technician will walk you through it. Takes no time at all. I work on a Lanier account and use that unit. As far as I know, only have to work 2 weekend days per month, unless that has changed, but not to my knowledge. There is plenty of work. It does take time to get through the training jobs in the beginning, because actually I think everybody is so busy; the account liasons, supervisors; etc., but keep your chin up - your wings will be clipped soon once you get through them and your fingers will be very busy.
i like bayscribe
and personally think QA is 98% great. yes, i've had to adjust some things from the way i was used to doing it, but with every different company, there are things to adapt to.

The accounts are all quite different, and the recruiter is willing to move a person to an account that suits their abilities. In fact, MDI will work more with the individual to find the right fit, and every other way, than any company i've ever worked for in decades! Of course, MDI won't be the right fit for everyone.
Liked Bayscribe but...

I think most of their bigger hospital accounts have quite a few ESLs - a few workable and some ridiculous (and I do have quite a bit of experience with ESLs and am not in any way averse to them - in the past I have done ESLs I like better than the rest of the docs - but some on these accounts just were too difficult to understand and it drove me nuts because I hate to leave blanks). 

Bayscribe was not a problem at all though - very easy to learn and use. 

I don't work for MDI but I do use Bayscribe and think it is the best platform ever--by far and away the fastest.
Landmark uses Bayscribe also.
So does Oracle, as well as several small mom and pops.
MDI bayscribe vs DQS
Hi, in response to you saying that your macros are staying, that is because you are not saving them to the system every time you create new ones, ask the tech people to introduce you to alt u. Take care.
I use Bayscribe at MDI

As far as learning Bayscribe after DQS, it was very easy.  It's not as fancy as DQS and there are a few features I wish it had, but it's easy to use and I do get much better line counts.  The #1 thing it has, that DQS doesn't, is the ability to pull up previous reports to refer to or even copy/paste from.  That's where a lot of great line counts can come from!  Not to mention, my company pays for ADT/CC info. 

The downsides - and I really think there are only 2 - you can't highlight a word and click a button to change it to all caps or all lowercase.  You have to delete it and retype it.  The other thing is you can pull up the doctor's list but you can't pull the name in directly - you have to remember the spelling and type it in. 

One more thing you might like - no ASR!


Bayscribe ? (sm)

I'm using a different for computer for work this evening, having problems with mine. I can't remember how or where to change settings so that I don't get an automatic capitalization after a period.  Can anyone help me with this? 


I think there is a settings option when you have the Bayscribe player open.  There are no jobs in my system right now so I can't get it to come up.

The thing that I do (because Bayscribe doesn't work with Stedman's) is I type everything in Word and then cut and paste into Bayscribe.

I'm not much help. Sorry.  If I come across it I'll post what I find.

Just an FYI to all of you using Bayscribe on MDI.  I work for another company, Landmark that also uses the Bayscribe platform and we are locked out as well, so I am almost positive this is a Bayscribe issue all around as that is what my supervisor is telling me also.  Everything was fine yesterday and I could work, but when I tried to log on this morning, no go. So I have not been able to work at all today either.  Never had this happen before, but hopefully they will fix it soon for all of us!!

I used Bayscribe for a short period of time.  It was very simple to learn but we had problems with it going down a lot.  I would sign on at 8:00 in the morning and would have a message that it was down and sometimes it would not come back up for 3-4 hours.  Other than that, lol, as I said, it was very simple to learn and use.  Hope that helps somewhat.

I use Bayscribe and a few others but not ExText. Bayscribe is one of the easist I've ever used and I've been doing this a very long time. Training on the program was literally about 20 minutes. I have been using it for about 4 years and it has never gone down while I've been working. That might have something to do with tech support and ours is great at the company I work for.
I truly love Bayscribe. Its elegance lies in its simplicity. I can easily do 300-350 lph on it. It is effortless to learn and a joy to use. Not nearly as sophisticated as some other platforms like DQS (hated it!) but it has really worked well for me.
Bayscribe Help, Please

I just installed Bayscribe on my computer and cannot get the foot pedal to interface (I'm using an Infinity USB DVI model which I was told is the correct one).  I've checked the player settings and it is set to USB.  I also checked my control panel and foot switch setting, and it's set to USB as well.

Any suggestions as to how to make this 'click'? 


My foot pedal will not work unless I shut the computer off, plug it in and then turn the computer back on. Don't know why, but it's always been like this. Sorry if it doesn't help.
