Quick question about Keystrokes platform

Posted By: J on 2007-03-19
In Reply to:

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 Rad MTs.....quick question...sm
Could you all let us know the per report rate that Keystrokes is offering for their radiology MTs?  I am intersested but don't want to waste anybody's time either.  TIA
Quick, the gene pool need a quick Clorox!
Could I please get a quick reply to quick hiring???....sm
I cannot find anything here or in archives about Integrity Transcription Service LLC; I was rapidly recruited and offered employment w/o testing, and wonder if there are any MTs here who work/have worked there?  Could you please share here or at my e-mail?  Soooo much appreciated, trying to weed things out!
Platform very easy and quick - easy to get used to. :)
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.
Keystrokes using Scribe platform

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.


Keystrokes uses mroe than one type of platform
Some accounts require a C-phone, some don't. It all depends on the account.
The MTs can't get out of there quick enough.
Keep looking!
Don't be too quick..
I know a lot of QA people that are not consistent including the ones that trained me. One person can say one thing in one month, and the same person will say something else the next month. It's not always the MT ya know
Very quick!

RUN - away - quick!
you are just too quick to....
point your finger, AND this is not gossip as I, along with others, went through the same thing. OP was just asking a simple question and your cocky answer was not called for. So I say it again, GROW UP!!
It's all about quick TAT sm
The TATs are tight so the accounts have to be staffed 24/7, and more people are working on the accounts keeping them caught up. The work is steady on my internet account, but it is always very current with very little backlog but the work is there. I've been at MDI for 4 years, cleared for all work types on my accounts, and have 5 accounts I can work on although only consistently work on 2. I have a friend who started recently. On her account, she was not cleared for all work types, and she does have trouble getting her lines. She doesn't want a backup account yet.
Quick, quick
I testing and applied with them and got a phone call from Bonnie Monaco within 2 hours of submitting everything.
Thanks for your quick response!
so dont be so quick to THINK you know
what happened. anyway, don't worry about what I will or will not do.
Thanks for the quick responses! s/m
I can't find anything else at all. Don't know if this would help me gain exp though for medical transcription.

Where is the work at home mom's board???

Thanks again :-)
Transcribe it Quick
I was wondering if anyone had heard back from Transcribe It Quick or has worked for them before.  They posted on the job board on 05/09 for per diem transcriptionists.  I received a phone call from a very nice woman who was the owner of the company.  She told me she wanted to hire me, told me all the specifics, welcomed me to the company, etc. and she even had me register with the site and download their player.  She was supposed to call me back that night, and I haven't heard word one back from her.  It sounded like a great job opportunity with great pay.  I called and left a message on her answering machine and I still haven't heard anything.  I thought it was really strange, and I was wondering if anyone had received a phone call back from her and was offered a job. 
Thanx for the quick reply!
Do you want quick or accurate?
Why go to a board like this for a question to do with your company's benefits? Actually, you would probably get a pretty quick answer by e-mailing your HR rep, and it would have a much higher probability of being correct!
Quick Question - sm
 Which forum on MTStars is the best one to visit if you're interested in learning about obtaining private accounts - tried-and-true methods, platforms to choose, etc.?  TIA!
quick to defend too
Please, quick info regarding....sm
Medical Transcription Services in Wisconsin -- sent me a letter regarding a new radiology account coming on board, would really love to take it (love rad), but I cannot find much about them AT ALL.  Thanks in advance!
Why are people so quick...
to think that lack of work is the sign that a company is *bad*. There is such a thing as TAT. Anyone in this field knows that at times it is feast or famine. I have no problem making my lines during the pay period, even when volume is low; it's called being flexible with my schedule. I do what I have to do, still have my days off and still make decent paychecks.
thanks, another quick question-
do they supply computer/equipment?
I got a quick response, but
they only had 3rd shift available.  I took a few days and then responded saying that I would be able to work the shift, then the recruiter told me she would contact me to discuss the position.  That was 2 weeks ago, and I still have not heard anything.  I'm also very experienced, with 99.5% QA or better.  Very weird . . 
Don't be so quick to doubt

I'm 5 years into my MT career.  I'm 48 and currenly I work an average of 10 hours a day for a popular MTSO.

2 years in house - most I made was was 27K

Last year 6 months in house, 6 months at home - 24k

Next year - 34k

This year 55k!  Do I count on that for next year?  Nope, but I can hope.

Yes, my speed probably is increasing.  Since this industry has a give yourself a raise mindset, that's what some of us do, when we can.

Yes, its awful that many of you made that much in the good old days, and its been reduced.  But as a relative newbie, I have nothing to be bitter about, so I just keep honing my skills and my expanders.

I think a quick email to your STM would be it. sm
That's all I did, said that I intended to work an extra hour each day, although I was usually getting 37 hours a week anyway.
Quick ? Sunshine
Just how strict are they on the 98% and QA submission? I would greatly appreciate any feedback you can give!
Just a quick question please?


I was hoping maybe you could share a little information about the Keystrokes hiring process with me?

I am really hoping to join the Keystrokes team but I am not sure if I should and my emails are not returned.


Many thanks!!

Quick clarification...
A lot of the accounts have the ability to go back to old reports and you pull several lines of information, those lines are paid at a different rate than the lines you actually type. It is basically getting paid for free lines I guess you would say. Nice enough company. Pay normally on time. They bascially leave you alone if you are doing your job.
Yes, yes, and yes. Honeymoon over real quick! nm
That is exactly how quick this company can get people going.
This company truely is one of the best. I feel like I am honestly part of a great family!
I'm a quick study but it was immediate. Its so easy.
can you quick explain "link" to me?
It was a very quick little blurp during an interview
and the recruiter said, as we were talking about Medquist - Yeah, Transcend will have its hands full when it picks up Medquist. That'll be soon.

It was the recruiter from OSI. Yes, they tell little fibs, but she also did tell me they outsource a very small percent of their work, and that was true.
Thank you LM for all your quick responses and information!!! NM

oh but they are quick to send an e-mail...
when you get something wrong in the dictation...
Thanks so much for your quick response and advice. sm
It's been a few years since I have had to apply for a new job and wasn't sure if it was worth mentioning or not, or if it would ever be asked. Thanks again!
Oh, LOL. Guess I got defensive too quick :) NM.
That ad had 18 cpl 2 days ago. They changed that quick! Now 16 cpl sm
Maybe when they hire you, they pay 10 cpl. Who knows!
Quick assessment from an outsider SM
I think this company rides the Crazy Train....too much drama for me!
Quick question about Precyse...sm
For all you radiology MTs with precyse, do you have plenty of work and do you make decent money?  Also, what platform do you use?  Is it a productive one or the one nobody seemed to like?  TIA
Oh, good, that's encouraging, I'm a quick
learner on platforms, have worked on many in the past. They told me they only need 1 more person on this account now.

Thanks so much! Have the paperwork and am faxing it over on Monday!
I agree, they are quick to answer only if THEY think
Don't jump the boat too quick...sm
Good morning! I feel your frustration. I have been in a situation like that and actually did have to leave the company. Being that it was just a holiday weekend, I would suggest just hanging in there a little longer. The company I work for takes about a good two or three weeks to get back to normal after a holiday, especially if not many MTs took PTO. Maybe give it a couple more weeks and see if it improves. Ask for a backup account to learn while you're out so you at least have that for next time. I know it's hard to be patient, but it might pan out. :)

Blessings! :)
Wow, you're quick with your response! Thanks again! nm
