MQ developed and owns DQS.
None. Bayscribe was developed by a tech guy
When I worked it was a DOS program they had developed (sm)
that actually worked with PRD - that was about 3-4 years ago and they were slowly transferring over to a Word-based type program... I believe InstanText should work with their stuff
Was it the old cottage program developed by YOG? sm
if so, another link to their so-called nonconnection with Carole and YOG.

Just good ears developed over time, familiarity...sm
with the dictator and/or access to doc's past reports.
SPI owns OSI now?
I believe Medquist owns
DQS and leases it to other companies and hospitals.
Maybe Nuance owns them, so they are
Mike, can you tell me who owns this company?
Just curious. I used to work for a lady who owned a company in Louisiana many years ago and she had a bad rep re: paying. Last I heard she moved to Arizona.
I don't think MedQuist owns Lanier.
We used Lanier at a small hospital in a very small town before I went to work for MedQuist.
Who owns or operates Diskriter?
I did know, but I forget. Anyone know?
Wonder if the same MTSO still owns that company.....nm
Medscribe owns another company too
I think it may be Southscribe. Does anyone know? I cannot recall the name of the other transcription company they own, but it is definitely in Georgia.
Transcend owns MDI-FL but each is run separately...sm
Hope this helps!
Just guessing but it might be the woman who owns KS??
MedQuist OWNS Diskriter and Lanier...nm
What?!?!? You clearly have NO idea what you are talking about! The "man" who owns TT
does NOT own the building they are working in. He is NOT a real estate investor. He has worked in transcription for years and was with L&H prior to their acquisition by MQ (as was the rest of the office staff). TT absolutely does NOT finagle their line counts. If you know anything about TT, you know that the Dictaphone ExText platform has had trouble for the last couple of months and they have gone out of their way to keep us informed.
You obviously have some sort of personal ax to grind with TT. It is YOU who needs to stop spreading TT misinformation. You need to be very careful about what you post.
Nuance owns escription and Dictaphone
Are your referring to Dictaphone Extext? Which Nuance system?
That's not true, my friend owns a payday business
and if you borrow $300.00 you pay $45.00 for that loan ending up paying back a total of $345.00. Maybe that was just a very unfortunate situation of your friend.
A friend of mine is a male and owns a transcription company. sm
He has no problem getting accounts and is quite wealthy from it. So, do not let your gender deter you!
His company is RX Transcription in Newtown Square, PA. Give him a call and maybe he can help you.
Full Circle Transcription in Acworth, GA. Does anyone know who owns this company? SM
Please email me if you do. I may like to contact them and would just like to know ahead of time whom I'll be emailing.

The Indian owner also owns a residential home in KY, that's where the KY part comes in. sm
The lead MT is in San Antonio, TX, but as the other poster said, the headquarters are in India and 99% of the people you deal with are in India, some city that begins with an A, can't remember. They are nice people, but they should be honest about it.
Phillips OWNS MedQuist, who bought Lanier Healthcare in 2002..nm
To my knowledge, the owner still lives in India, simply owns a home here. sm
The work is received FROM the Indian office and sent TO the Indian office. They used to hire only American MTs, but then started outsourcing to a company in India (big surprise).
I understand what you are saying, though. And if they are honest about it, then it is the choice of the MT as to whether he/she wants to work there. The fact that they blatantly misled in their ad angered me, but then again, I have been an MT long enough, nothing should surprise me. I guess I have done my part, and I have no particular axe to grind so I should just leave this alone now. I just was shocked when I saw the ad.
Good luck to all of us in finding a job that treats us well and pays us even better (smile).
do you have any certain software...sm
to do your own line count on, or is there some way to do it w/o any special software? I'd like to check mine out!
What software were you using? nm
Just that there software is
Anyone know what software All Type uses?
Yes, you use their software that
incorporates your version of Word into, so you have all your auto correct, etc.
It's VR software.
I hated it at first but I've gotten used to it and hate typing the old way now.
Thanks. Is extext the same as dictaphone extext?. I will be working with a company shortly that uses dictaphone extext and someone had e-mailed me stating you can also use ShortHand if you like with dictaphone extext. Could you please give me some information on where I can find ShortHand since it is something it sounds like I could use. Thank you so much. I would appreciate it!
Chartnet at SPI/Cymed is the best platform I have ever worked on. I worked on ExText for many years before and Chartnet is more efficient. I think SPI bought the rights to it (not 100% on this) so I don't think any other companies have it.
platform do they use?
Everyone will have to use the same software?
I hope it is Editscript. It is the easiest to work on. At least the of ones I have used.
Do not pay for software
They are making the profit. I doubt very much that you are a principal or stockholder in the company. That being the case, why should you bear the financial burden. Again, don't enable this kind of bad behavior. There are plenty of honest and decent companies out there. This does not sound like it is one of them.
They have a software
and you have to use that software so it takes a lot of time. For every report you have to open up that software, search for the MT, search for other stuff and type the corrections in that form instead of on the report itself. That stuff gets sent to the MT. You get credit for only 15 lines for blanks no matter how many blanks there are.
The only time you get credit for the whole report is if you do a full listen and they are on full QA. Major ripoff.
No, just the software.
Email me if you want more info.
Perhaps they are getting ready to change software, platform, or make some changes with their programs.
What is the best expansion software to use
I may be taking a position with them and need to know which program works.
Their software is downloadable
from the EmDat website. They tell you that you need to pay for it and you should run fast. I have heard that they are not wonderful or even remotely close to wonderful.
Looking for companies that use this voice recognition software. I think it's great and would love to find more work using that platform. Thanks for any info!
Question about software...
I start for Medware later this week. I am a rehire and before worked on Merit, but this time am working on the Dictaphone software. Is this the same software that MQ used at one time? For those who are employees now I would love to hear from you, please feel free to email me. I am hoping I made the righ decision to go back, but I think I have. I am just wondering what the difference is in the two platforms and if you get your line counts okay. Thanks.
They have their own proprietary software...
very similar to MS Word. Easy to use. Disregard the person's post about 8.5 cpl for 1400 lpd - should get facts from the recruiter about pay and benefits. If you want to ask any more questions, I would be happy to e-mail you.
They use DOS-based software sm
Medtype and Medrite. Nothing done in Word. All DOS-even email. Use PC anywhere for file transfer over phone line. 6 cents per line to start. QA 98-100 is very difficult to get and maintain. They supply equipment.
Not at all. I have 3 different types of software and
all three use a wave pedal. Two of them use USB and the other a 15-pin, and there is no conflict in the programming of each one.
software is SLOOOOOOOOOW
They are a nice bunch of people and the benefits were good, but I could rarely make their line count requirement because their
trouble with software
I am still having trouble with the ExText software. I know TT is doing their best to get everything smoothed out...but I am concerned because it really slows me down and is very frustrating...I just get all geared up and ready to have at it...but the software gives me nothing but problems. It cuts me off after I complete a report and then I have to sign back on to get dictation. Sometimes the system does not recognize my foot pedal, and I have to crawl under my desk undo the USB connection and reconnect, then it will work. All in all this is very frustrating. Also I find some of the doctors are difficult to understand...I think they are speaking too close or too far away from their microphone, etc. I know my line counts thus far are not good at all. I like the company...they are all very, very nice to work with, especially QA. I have been on the account about 3 weeks now...I sure hope it improves soon.
Thanks for your input.
Best radiology software
I just recently started working for EMTS in January of this year. Yes, I made the jump from MQ. Anyway, it is simply a pleasure to work for this outfit. They treat their transcriptionists with dignity and really appreciate their skills. They are very patient and very informative as well as are always building you up through the probation phase. It was hard going from DQS to Softweb but with diligence and hard work, I am now making much more in income than I was before. I think the reason it was difficult for me was it is using MS-word and there was so much that I did not know about it but have learned so much in such a short amount of time and would never go back. They will have to carry me out kicking and screaming, truly a great bunch of people to work with.
