RE: What in your experience is the most efficient Word-based radiology platform to work on? nm
Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
Is that a Word-based platform?
I just applied for that position and they e-mailed me with some questions.
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. 
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. 
Their own platform. Shorthand, Word based. nm
Is the platform good? Word-based? Is the new
position still recruiting? Just passed the written and doing the transcription next..
It is their own platform but not word based. Shorthand is the macro stuff.
Pretty decent place to work.
anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me 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.
Word based expanders work with Merit
Hope that helps
small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
Same experience...awesome to work for, horrible platform..sm
I've been an MT for close to 20 years and am most productive on ER accounts where I can create my own templates and Expanders out the ying yang. After 2 months and the worst line counts of my entire career, I had to move on. I do want to point out that PM does have some of the nicest, most helpful staff I've ever worked for! The platform is the ONLY reason I left.
RISS is not a platform. RIS stands for Radiology Information System. The platform sm
would be EXText.
give the work to the busiest & most efficient
It can if it is word based
Any word based Expander can be copied over into Medware.
DVI - MS Word based
The platform is Word. Their program works with Word but does not change how Word works. nm
The benefits just changed the first part of this month. I don't have them but I remember them being reasonabl for a single person. Family and spouse was not reasonable in any way (in my opinion).
But I thought that was not Word-based. Is it? nm
Is Emdat word-based?
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.
What is Iscriptor (Word based??) and ... NM
No, it's not Word based at all, totally different...nm
It's not word based - keystroke combos are different. NM
Sounds great! Is it Word-based?
I am totally clueless about it!
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
?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, 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
Similar. ExText is Word based. I prefer it to Meditech for ease of use.nm
Spheris radiology word expanders
Does anybody know what word Expanders Spheris uses for Meditech radiology?
Is it an internet-based platform or VR? What is wrong with it?
Anyone know of a really good online Radiology word/phrase

resource site?  TIA.

by the line, based on experience nm
If they say internet-based ASP, is that just the platform, or is it voice recog? nm
Based on my past experience, I think they will push everyone...
to be employees so they can lower your cpl rate. Once the company I worked for started pushing employee status, they made it miserable for those of us who wouldn't take the 2 CPL pay cut to be an employee, i.e., not mailing out checks and saying if we were employees, we could have direct deposit, etc.
Keystrokes has the best radiology accounts IMO. I have plenty of work and radiology only. nm
I make a good living and rarely run out of work. When I do, it is for a few minutes at a time and usually because the rads have not started early enough. No other complaints!
The pay is stratified, based on years of experience and if you're a CMT. sm

You will be required to work one weekend day every week. There is a mix of ESL and non-ESL. Currently we have been running out of work, but it always picks up in the winter.  I do not know what "SE's" are so I can't answer that question.

agree,the pay is going to vary based on individual experience
MT seamstress made a statement based on her experience.
Why should MT Seamstress be worried about the feelings of others when this man obviously cared nothing about HER feelings.  I am not married to an offshore man but I have had dealings with them in the business world and MTS. experience is very typical of what I have seen also. Maybe your DH is the exception. One bases one's opinion on what they have seen and experienced and third world men, as I have been exposed to, lie, manipulate and treat women with no respect or regard. Are you saying you have NOT eperienced this with any of the offshore men you come in contact with regarding, maybe not DH himself, but other men in DH family or circle of friends? 
The answers provided are based on my personal experience only

need any information you can give me on Medware. What they pay, (depends on your experience) platform (Merit), training (frustrating, on par with many companies in like field), do you pay deposit for computer (you supply your own), what they are like to work for (depends on who your Team Lead is), work (feast or famine), offshore (Yes), etc. I need it quick and any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Is this the NY-based service? I live in NY, have lots of experience, and they
Does KS hire IC? What platform for Radiology?
Thanks so much......looking for work!
So you are on the ChartMatrix platform and radiology. sm
No wonder the difference! From what I hear, those of us on Enterprise seem to run out much less often.
eTransplus radiology platform?
Anyone have any information on this?  TIA
Do you know any MTs who use Word for their platform?
