US Transcription platform
Does anyone work here and if so are you happy? What about this Patriot platform? Is it word-based? I am confused about their info as well like the template 3 cent thing and unpaid time off. Holidays too, very confusing and I am no dunce cap. They want to hire me but I am so tired of let downs as most of us MTs are nowadays. Thanks...

Their transcription platform is horrible,
training and QA are just as bad.  I couldn't get out of there quick enough.
Zylomed Transcription Platform
Trying to determine if info I received on this is correct--can MT working for Zylomed use own MS Word that includes expanders, abbreviations, etc., without having to transcribe into their proprietary software called MT World, as I understand it is called.  The fact that they supply a different foot pedal instead of ability to use standard wav pedal raises questions.  Need to know how this works before making decision to hire on with them.  Thanks for any info.
ExText is a transcription platform
it is Dictaphone ExText. It's a great Word based platform that some companies use for their transcription. Very easy to learn and use!
InfraWare transcription platform?

Has anybody worked on this platform? 


T-C Transcription in Florida - platform?
Does anyone know what the platform is that T-C transcription is using now? If you don't know the name of it, is it easy and quick to use to get you into MS Word quickly?
Does anyone know which platform Aero Transcription Inc. uses?

Mucho gracias!

ASP is their own platform they use for straight transcription.
Transcription relief services? What platform do they use?
I understand it is word-based - is this correct? Would like to email someone who works for them. Thank you
Need platform info on CCS Transcription (Florida)
Trying to find company(ies) using the BayScribe transcription platform?

Northeast Transcription, any info? Platform? Work flow? Anything?
JLG Transcription - Can anyone tell me about them? Pay,weekends, nice staff, decent platform? You
can email me because I want the God to honest truth!  Thanks :)
Is Dolbey STAT Transcription Platform user friendly?

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
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:

Posted By: Amphion on 2005-12-02

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.

Webinar -Evolving Medical Transcription: Technology's impact on traditional transcription process

Hey everyone, check out this link. This is what we are up against. Be sure and note how 3M or whoever is the sponsor of this webinar throws in that dictation and transcription is time-consuming.  Nevermind that EMR and VR take more time and money to be successful and it only takes 38 seconds to dictate a returning patient and 2 minutes to dictate a new patient versus 500 clicks on a point and click EMR or the mess VR makes and having to have an Editor come in and clean up the mess. Propaganda that we should know about.



TransTech / Transcription, Technology, and Support / The Transcription Doctors nm
Trying to get info on Transcription-Express(not X-press Transcription)....

Got a call and am scheduled to be hooked on later this week.  Does someone need to stop me?  TIA 

Anyone work for Oak Transcription or Nicholas Transcription- please e-mail me nm
Need pros and cons of Soap Transcription and US Transcription

I am looking for a new home and have applied and accepted by one of these companies.  Hoping to hear from the other very soon.  Can anyone tell me the good/bad of these 2 companies.  Soap is out of Michigan and US Transcription is out of Iowa. 

Thanks in adance for your help/support. 

Do you mean TMT Transcription or Tidewater Medical Transcription sm
known as TMT. Their tactics are to look for you so it sounds like them.
TRS Transcription (Transcription Relief Services)

Please let me know if you work for this company and what you think of them. I am testing right now and hope they are a good company! :)

Thanks :)

To each his/her own! I was on a different VR platform sm

and ran out of work constantly.  I have worked on several VR platforms and BeyondText is not the best, but it is not the worst either. 

Every company has good and bad.  Transcend was just not a good fit for me; however, it may be a good fit for you or the next person who comes along.

I love new technology and work on state-of-the-art platforms, the newer the better, so that typewriter theory of yours really does not jive here.

Every company has good and bad, it all depends on the individual MT and what that MT is looking for in a company. 

Good luck to you and if you choose Transcend, I hope it is a good fit for you! 



Any info at all on CareFlow platform?  Is is productive?  Any info appreciated. 
MDI-MD's pay & platform

1.  How do they pay in comparison to other companies?

2.  Can you access reports typed by other people or review the patient's old reports in Bayscribe?

3.  Do they furnish PC and/or charge a fee?


Could you tell me what platform they use?
new platform
I really like the new platform, but it's always running out of work.  When there is work, I can get pretty good lines.
what is the best platform out there?
what is the best platform and what kind of money is "good money" in transcription?
What platform do they use? sm
Do they consider full-time to be 40 hours a week?
What platform do they use?
Any idea on the payscale?  Can you provide any other information?
Okay, that is good to know. The account I would be on is on Medrite, which I have used before and like.

What platform do you use? nm
And if they don't get you with a bad platform,

then they overstaff your account.  I used to get over 20,000 lines before they overstaffed mine and started playing favorites, with cherry picking taking place.  (And don't say it can't happen, because it can and does right before my eyes all the time.)  I've been struggling to make the minimum to keep my benefits. 

And then they try to tell you how you're going to be making such great money when you go to voice recognition, which is a JOKE for someone who typically transcribes 250-300 lines an hour.

To read this board and find that now the incentive program is discontinued for new employees (who are now hired at a higher rate and given instant PTO) while the rest of us who were hired before November 1 have to scramble to get a higher line count in order to make what the newbies are making and have to wait a year before earning one minute of PTO only provides yet another example of the inequitable way this company operates.

I'm tired of all the games, the insulting of my intelligence with the fiction they invent, and the terrible, terrible program. 

And to all the cheerleaders out there:  Write down all the good things you have to say now, save it in a file, put it on your calendar for 6 months from now and THEN let us all know how you're making out.

As for me, I've found another job.

About which platform.......sm
Is your account still on the H platform? Is the the bo account? That's what I was on, and I am the one thinking of going back with the post above yours. If so, this is interesting to know ahead of time.
I believe you can use IT with the platform.
What platform do they use...
and are they employee only status or do they have IC also? Thanks!!
Both IC/SE, their own platform (sm)
which they are constantly upgrading in response to MT feedback, works much like Word, compatible with Instant Text, Shorthand, and Wordpad-based normals.
Could you tell me what platform

they use and if they are employee only? Do you have to be full time? Thanks much!!

Platform: their own (sm)
which works a lot like Word, accepts Instant Text, which the company will help you buy (they also have free IT classes and glossaries for many accounts). I like that they upgrade the platform based on MT feedback. Owner is known for hiring top tech staff and programmers. I'm an SE; they also hire employees. I don't think you have to be full time, but it's so easy to make the full time lines that you might want to be. I've done overflow work for probably 10 services in the last 5 years (in addition to working long term for 1 service), and I've never piled up the line count as easily as with ProScript nor been treated as well.
It is just a platform.
I worked on Softmed when I was in-house.  You are basically working in Word superimposed on Softmed.  I liked it when I used it.  If you are proficient in Word, you will do fine.   
What platform does - sm
TransHealth use?
I work for them also and have found the TT/webtop platform to be slow with too many demos to search for and enter in. You must be on Vscript, would that be correct? And you don't enter any demos?
That would be fine. I just need to invest in something better for my MT's and for the company itself since we are growing tremendously. Thanks for the reply.
Do they use a platform or is it
ftp? What other software is needed? TIA!
anyone know what platform OSi (outsourcing solutions inc) uses and/or have any comments about how productive it is?
DSG platform?
Got an email from them about an interview tomorrow; what platform do they use-anyone know? Thank you
TRS platform?
I head it is word based - is this correct? Would like to be able to use my Stedman's spellcheck and ShortHand for windows.
