Can anyone currently working for Keystrokes please tell me if you use the Scribe platform, what is Allscripts, and are you happy and able to make a good line count on a daily basis? Thanks very much.

Question about Keystrokes scribe platform

Is it transcription friendly and productive i.e. ease of getting lines, etc.


scribe platform problems
Anyone else finding Scribe's tech support to be lacking in timeliness?
Scribe is the platform and it is slooow
I worked for transportal to too long ago and if your getting on the account I just left then you will type forever and ever to get 800 lines.  They will assign you 80 to 100 minutes of work late at night then you have to get up early to type it in the TAT they want.  They will also tell you that those 80 to 100 minutes will typically give you 1200 lines but they do not.  The account I was on had good dictators but the Scribe platform was slow, very slow and I have DSL.  You had to click the job number, then click the voice file, then search demos, then search templates, and then you can type the report.  Oh yeah, not to mention the fact that Scribe does not give a line count.  Oh yeah you heard me.  You have no idea what your line count is at the end of the day and transportal will not tell you on a daily basis either.  I hope they have changed in the last few weeks since I was there but I doubt it.  By the way, I am not the only one who has left there in the past few weeks.  
Precision Scribe Platform
Is it MT friendly ?  Thanks
The platform is Scribe. EASY to learn and use.
The line count is straight 65 characters with spaces and you can see your count which is important to me.

Today is supposed to be my day off. I needed to do a bunch of errands and catch up and do closets. So far, it's almost 10:30 and I have been on here all morning! I need to scoot!
Scribe platform line count

What are your line counts with the Scribe platform?  I'm only getting half of what I did with DocQscribe.

Scribe platform line count
I was told I got paid for all headers, footers and expansions, but so much has to be done manually, like open sound file, click to save, then click to close, then click to send, then click to send with note or without note, etc. With DocQscribe, so much was done automatically including downloading a file behind the one we were doing.
I type in Word and use the Scribe platform...
but I don't use a C-phone...
I work on the Scribe platform but there are many other platforms..
just depends on what account you get hired in for. On this particular account, you can look up old reports. We do have part-time employees but I believe they are slowly going away from part-time into full-time.
Scribe platform, how to see line counts? sm
Does anyone know how to get individual report line counts in Scribe platform?  I can see the lump sum, but I want to see individual report counts.
Keystrokes platform?
Can those that work at Keystrokes tell me about the platform? Easy to learn? Do you like it and why? TIA.
Keystrokes platform? Looking for a change
and I have applied at Keystrokes, but would like to know how platform they work on as well as if they pay shift or weekend differential. Thanks
What platform is Keystrokes ER account?
Keystrokes accounts have more than one platform
Every account has a different platform (it depends on what the client wants to use). Some use ExText (which both of mine do), some Meditech, and some are on other platforms that use a C-phone.
Quick question about Keystrokes platform
I have just accepted a full-time position with Keystrokes for an ER account.  I was very pleasantly surprised with the pay rate and schedule that they offered me.  I see that they use Transnet for their software.  Is this an easy, stable platform to use?  Are you able to look up old reports for references. Do you have to spend a ton of time on patient demographics?  Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Keystrokes uses mroe than one type of platform
Some accounts require a C-phone, some don't. It all depends on the account.
RISS is not a platform. RIS stands for Radiology Information System. The platform sm
would be EXText.
MDI-MD platform is fast, not full of problems like Transcend platform or MDI-FL

On Transcend platform you have to click, click, click all day and still get errors, change screens constantly -  its a nightmare to work in. 

Yes, SPi does use this platform....it's a great platform, but not worth working for SPi. nm
Did Keystrokes sell to Transcend? I thought Keystrokes was buying up companies sm
but I heard from another service owner that they sold out to Transcend. Anyone know if that happened?
Bad Platform. I personally know of 3 MTs who left because of the platform.
If you are like me, the bottom line is wages and what I get in my check. I have never worked for Amphion, but I personally know of 3 MTs who worked part-time at Amphion before quitting their other service to see what Amphion had to offer before it was too late. All 3 quit Amphion and stayed with their other service because of the Amphion platform. Too hard to make any decent lines.

Something to think about.


Here is one post from a couple days back:

To all of us trying our hardest to grab our work when it is available, and then still only make 24 bucks a day because of the garbage platform.


Does anyone know how much E-scribe pays per line? I am thinking of applying with them.  What is a good rate to type for?  I was told 8 cpl (65 characters w/spaces) was a good rate. Does anyone pay less or more than that? Is 7 cpl too little? 

Able Scribe

I applied for a job a few months ago and it turned out they didn't even have the account, but then MT companies aren't exactly known for their integrity. 

Med-Scribe in FL? SM
I was wondering if anyone could give me recent information about this company.  The only information I could find in archives was 2 or more years old.  Anyone currently working there, I would really appreciate some input regarding pay, dictators, benefits, etc.  TIA
RE: Scribe Right
Great company! But only IC status-no benefits, which works great for me as DH as the benefits. Pay always on time. Very happy with them.
Med-Scribe - FL
I have read past posts that have me a bit scared about getting paid if I accept a position with them, but these posts are over a year old.  Have things improved in that respect?  Any new news on this?  Please reply.  Thanks!
I have applied with Med-Scribe and am wondering if I can get some feedback from other MTs. I searched the archives, and all the messages were more than 2 years old. I am really, really hoping things have improved since they were posted! I really need to get off the IC and get some insurance. I would love to hear from any current or recent employees. Thanks!
There is not a lot of info on this company except for really old posts. Can anyone tell me generally whether they enjoy working for Med-Scribe, how is the pay, how is the work flow and what platform do they use? 
Medquist and DSG. DSG is hiring.
it is Doc-Q-scribe....
does anyone know how much med-scribe pays?  Thank you!
I have just been offered a position with Med-Scribe out of Florida for an ER account (which is what I wanted). Are they a good place to work for, pay on time, pay for spaces, treat employees well, etc? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
What about Med-Scribe or D&L?
Med-Scribe in NJ
Anyone with current information on this company.  Lots of older stuff found but unable to tell if they are about this one or the one in Florida.  Interested in the NJ Med-Scribe only.  TIA.
Has anyone worked on the SCRIBE platform?  Seems to be not MT friendly with too much mousing..... ??????
Currently using scribe (sm)
and you do have to use the mouse more so than other platforms I have used. There are some shortcut keys but you have to mouse after entering patient info to start typing the report, which can be annoying. Personally it is my least favorite platform I have used so far, but then again I find it very slow to load between reports as well.
Is this one in KY or is it another company?
Any current or recent Med-Scribers out there?  Curious about the Med-Scribe with ad on board (not sure if Florida or not) - wondered how they are to work for? Pay on time?  Decent to work for?  All info appreciated!

I filled out an online application this morning witih Med-scribe and I had time to walk into the kitchen and get a cup of coffee and they called me offering me a job to start to work next week.  Apparently you did not have enough experience in whatever specialty they were needing at the time.  Could not have been nicer on the phone.  So, nice it is a little scary that is why I got on here to see if anybody had anything to say about Med-Scribe before I tell them for sure whether I am going to accept their offer or not.  It could have something to do with I have 30 years experience transcribing also. 


The recruiter offered me a job....led me on...and then did not return my calls promptly....didn't like they way they did business....
Can someone tell me if Med-Scribe is mostly straight typing or SR? Thanks in advance!
I don't believe they provide equipment. If you visit their website, it will tell you more. Also, check the archives. Good luck!
Med-Scribe Florida out of work daily for entire pay period, cannot meet production. I have asked for fourth backup account but no definite yes given. Anyone else notice this ongoing problem over the last year?

I am interested in applying to Med-Scribe. I was wondering if there are any current employees or former employees who could tell me their experience good or bad. I currently work for Spheris but I plan on looking at other companies.

Thanks in advance,

Not Scribe
FWIW- MD-IT now uses a proprietary platform.  It looks like they are growing quite a bit.  From their website it looks like they are really trying to preserve the industry.  A former collegue of mine works for them (now) in Seattle- was Pro-Scribe, now MD-IT.
keystrokes ad..can someone tell keystrokes their banner ad needs a hyphen...quality-minded
Did Keystrokes sell to Transcend? I thought Keystrokes was buying sm

small companies but another service owner told me that she heard that Keystrokes sold to Transcend.  Is this true? 

I posted this down below but meant to post it as a new thread.  Before I apply with them, I would like to know as I left Transcend a few months ago and do NOT want to get back into that mess.

Medscribe or Med-Scribe sm

Has anyone heard of Medscribe or Med-scribe? They both have jobs on MT daily, and I was just wondering if anybody worked for them or knew anything about them?



Anyone familiar with EZ-Scribe? (sm)
Any comments welcome!
Express Scribe

Does anybody know if earphones can be used with Express Scribe?  I can't find any information about this anywhere.  Thanks. 

Med-Scribe of Georgia?
Any info, good or bad? TIA!
