Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
The platform is not Word, but it is Word-based. I
had little Word experience and the recruiter told me to try to find a book to learn the basics of Word as their program is Word-based. 
It can if it is word based
Any word based Expander can be copied over into Medware.
DVI - MS Word based
But I thought that was not Word-based. Is it? nm
Is Emdat word-based?
Is that a Word-based platform?
I just applied for that position and they e-mailed me with some questions.
Meditech word-based?
Anyone working for company that uses this?  From my understanding they count lines according to the amount of minutes you type.   Those of you experienced on this version of Meditech, please share some insight.  Thanks.
Word based platform
Are there any GOOD companiesthat work on a Word-based platform?
they run off a word-based platform
it's not very stream-lined and kinda klunky, but efficient enough.  I know they've made recent updates to make it run a little faster, but there were times when i would spent two to three minutes after filling out the screen waiting for my work screen to appear. 
What is Iscriptor (Word based??) and ... NM
No, it's not Word based at all, totally different...nm
Their own platform. Shorthand, Word based. nm
It's not word based - keystroke combos are different. NM
yes, it is word based. And very user friendly. IMO.
It's Rapid Text-a Word-based
program. It has most of the templates built in. Very user friendly. Pretty much, if you can type in Word, you can use this platform.
MT-World Transcription - which is word-based. nm
Is the platform good? Word-based? Is the new
position still recruiting? Just passed the written and doing the transcription next..
?If it's not Word-based, it shares a lot of the same commands..sm
So whatever. Ctrl-C, V, X, etc. Agree it can be slow but has gotten better. By far not the best I've used, but also not the worst. Almost last, though. ShortHand is crap, but you can use IT. Good luck.
Word based expanders work with Merit
Hope that helps
Word-based, expander included, easy to use...NM
iType is word based, iText Expander SM...
is included in the program and it works great for me. They were able to import my old PRD files right into it. Cost zero. You do need your own spellchecker. Pretty good program, reasonably MT friendly.
Do they use MT-World software? Is it Word based? Easy? Productive? Thx. nm
It is their own platform but not word based. Shorthand is the macro stuff.
Pretty decent place to work.
What in your experience is the most efficient Word-based radiology platform to work on? nm
RE: What in your experience is the most efficient Word-based radiology platform to work on? nm
Similar. ExText is Word based. I prefer it to Meditech for ease of use.nm
Is Apex an internet word-based platform? Havent heard of it...
It does work, you do not need to "make" it work.. it works in all word based programs.
Great incentive plan, but based on speed/lph not total lines produced. Works if you are fast.
That sounds great. I am having
trouble finding their E mail address.  Could you please give it out.  I would apply there.
Sounds great
Lets go together!!! LOL!!!
That sounds great !
Thanks for the info. I will do a little more research on them and maybe after the first of the year, I will contact them. This sounds like just what I want to add to my other MT job. The flexible part is what I like !!! Anyone on here work for them ?
Sounds great
Thanks for the info :-)
Sounds great to what some say others
But their web site sounds so great...
And web pages are always truthful, right?
Sounds great now, but sooner or later..SM
the technology will develop to the point that it can do all of it all on its own. You probably won't even get a thank you card for helping them put the technology in place and keep the work load current while they worked out the kinks to get to the point where they don't need most of you any more. It will turn out to have been a real cheap buy for them in the end. A little bigger piece to you now in order to ensure they eventually get the whole cake. Such a deal!

If the format is in place for use of VR, why not demand they just give it to you and let you use it to get it right the first time instead of having to take the time to fix it for somebody else? The only reason it makes sense to do it this way is because of where these companies eventually see it taking them, which is to a place that does not include us.
TransTech sounds great
It sounds like I'm getting a good deal then. I've been working for Cymed for the past 9 or 10 months and have pretty much been happy, but I heard that Transtech was one of the better companies out there, so I decided to apply yesterday, and this morning I had an email telling me to call them, and they offered me a position right away. I didn't even have to take the test.
This sounds great. I would love to do mostly OPs. SM
Was that by your choice?

I think everyone's experience at work is different, and it is easier to be negative than positive.
Sounds like a great place, but I wish they
straightened out that I have been reading about here for months and offer some PTO the first year. Everybody needs at least a day or two for illness, child illness, or just some R and R within a year's time. Also wish they hired part time to start out. Oh well, maybe someday as it does sound like a good place to try out.
That is just wonderful. Great. Sounds
Wow it sounds like a great situation
If you could make it through to the first check or if you have, if you can, I suggest that you put half of each check in checking and the other half in savings. Then, pay yourself biweekly. Be strict on yourself no advances because then in your mind you will think you have suddenly gotten a great windfall, only to find in 2 weeks you are not paid again. Sounds like you have a great situation this MT certainly would love it... but like you, this MT would have to be very strict after making it through a long month with no check, and then only taking half of that to put away in savings. Good luck on the project to do this. But in a way, it evens out and if you can learn to do it, you will be happy, your production will go up and maybe you will end up a paycheck or money ahead of the game so you can give yourself a raise! :)
Sounds like you have a great VR account

but very demanding management.  Just like you wouldn't work for companies where the VR is really bad, I wouldn't work for a company that demanded I not erase and retype.  They're already cutting my pay...I'm not going to stand for them telling me I need to lose more money by doing it their way only, especially if the end product is the exact same. 

Thanks! Axolotl sounds great!
I just sent in my resume for Axolotl. They sound great. Just looking for steady work flow, dependable and accurate paycheck and a little bit of respect in turn for the same. Thanks again!
Yes, it's totally word based, but it's also totally slow.
I haven't had a very good experience using dictaphone EXText. I wouldn't recommend anyone work on this platform. I don't know how anyone can say this is a very productive platform in any way whatsoever. Actually, it is the worst I've ever worked on. I like Bayscribe, DocQscribe, and many others over this setup.
Sounds great! The problem is, I have been looking for 3 months - sm
And cannot find a company like what you are describing. Why aren't you willing to name the company? Do they not have enough work to go around?
Would you have to do some in-house training first? Sounds great if
Sounds great there...I was looking at their website just last week (sm)

don't know if they are hiring though..but can you answer 1 more question?  Re weekends: Do you have to work every weekend or maybe 2 weekend days a month?  TIA. 

Sounds like you work at a great place
That seems like a much more reasonable line rate for VR, 0.065 - correct.  A lot better than the 0.03 0 0.045 that most offer.  Would it be okay to ask who you work for?
