Their platform is proprietary and you can use Shorthand...sm

with it, or ShortCut.  Those 2 I know for sure are compatible.  I really like the platform - it's called ChartMatrix.  It keeps a running total of your lines as you type, so you know right where your production is at any given time.   They pay for headers, footers and spaces which is great. 

Come and join us! 

Their own platform. Shorthand, Word based. nm
It is their own platform but not word based. Shorthand is the macro stuff.
Pretty decent place to work.
Reputable company w/ platform compatible w/ InstanText/Shorthand

Am heavily dependent on sophisticated Expanders that incorporate code script, like ShortHand and InstanText.  Can anyone recommend reputable employers whose platforms are compatible with these programs? 

I would LOVE to hear opinions on Enterprise platform for Webmedx&for Shorthand.See msg.
Thanks so much!  Does anyone know if Instant Text will work with Enterprise also.  The recruiter who offered me a job was fuzzy on that.  Any webmedx employees who would like to E-mail me opinions, etc., I would deeply appreciate it
How did you get shorthand to work with it?
Deb H said they did not think it would.
Shorthand might work.
Since it works under Windows, not under any particular app, and so far, I have not had it NOT work--even when I didn't want it to, such as in chat, e-mail, and instant messaging, if I forget to turn it off....

You can download a free 30-day trial. Just Google ShortHand for Windows. I don't have the URL handy. If it doesn't work for you... you don't have to pay for it at the end of the trial.
Will Shorthand 9.02 work with Editscript?sm
I read where ShortHand 8 will, but not sure about 9.2.  Instant Text sure doesn't. 
I currently work with ExText and use Shorthand....
It works GREAT! I have over 15,000 shortcuts saved in it and am CONSTANTLY adding more. I work on an acute care account. HTH!
How do you put this in AutoCorrect? Wouldn't shorthand work the same way?
Shorthand and Instant Text will work
Don't know about any other programs though.
Does the Shorthand program work well? I don'the know
anything about it but I just started a new job with Meditech and there is no associated program for AutoCorrect or macros. They suggested we d/l the ShortHand program which I did d/l the free 30 day trial. I haven't used it yet but I really miss macros and shortcuts...Will it be worth the $99.99 purchase price when my 30 days expires?  Thanks.
Instant Text and Shorthand both work with it. nm
Yes, Shorthand. They have an address datatbase that is in Shorthand, so that's what they sm
prefer you use.  nm
Keystrokers - do you work in Word - Can you use ShortHand - How many lines for fulltime? Thanks
Does ShortHand or SmarType work with the company DiskWriter's system?
Pay is always on time, direct deposit, very nice management to work with, and DQS platform, work
load normally busy, but low now because of the summer slow down on my accounts.  Sound an issue on some accounts, but not others.  Overall, wonderful company.
I believe it depends on what platform u work on. I work on
Extext and I love it!!!!! I have not transcribed even part time in years. First night in less than 2 hours hit 300+ lines. Second night a little over 2 hours hit 350+ lines. This is all learning a new system so I find it interesting and fun.
How is this platform to work on?

Is it productive for MTs? Can ShortHand work with it. Thanks for any info

New platform and new work
The new software is just awesome and I hear we have a large hospital starting next week.  Give them a call if you are looking for work.  I can not help you with the other two you mentioned but can wish you good luck with your search.  L.
What platform do you work on?
I really love ExText and I know they do have accounts on that platform.  I did apply and got to the interview stage but then decided to back out because of the bad remarks on this site. I certainly hope I won't be sorry.  How is their cpl rate compared to others? Thanks.
Not very organized. Had more than 1 platform to work on
I had 3 accounts and had to learn new platform for each.  I didn't stay with them very long.  Found a better place.
How is Vianeta platform like to work on?
Which platform do you work on at Medware?


Super platform to work in.
Emdat is by far one of the most user friendly and productive platforms I have used.  MTs working with me have commented on the ease of learning and a great manual coupled with a wonderful tutorial to get you started.  Additionally, it has many features that include automatic log which shows you where you are at any point in the day .. email me if you have any specific questions.
How fast is the platform you work on?
Because the platform I am on is slower than the snail in my backyard.
Does anyone work for ProScript? I'd like to know about the platform, please sm
What Expanders does it support? It is difficult to maneuver in and get lines? I have an offer...
2003 does not work with their platform
Only 2000 and 2002.
What companies have a decent platform to work on, .

have employee status, lots of work, and minimal confusion and disorganization?   Can do the big 4 for acute care.

I'd like to know the bad platform and which accounts run out of work. I'm supposed to have bac
accounts to work on...Please email me.. I cant afford to work on the Mojave Desert LOL
Ortho MTs? Can I ask which platform you work on and is it productive??
I work on the Scribe platform but there are many other platforms..
just depends on what account you get hired in for. On this particular account, you can look up old reports. We do have part-time employees but I believe they are slowly going away from part-time into full-time.
Doesnt matter how good the platform is without work does it.
Staff is great-no work and too many platform issues.
Medware, good platform, plenty of work
I have worked for them almost 3 years now, they are a better than average company and pay on time every other Friday.  Check them out, you will be happy you did.  Kim.
Yet, second company thinks it should work and not mess up other platform (sm)
I will feel better when the actual technician sees about loading it. Not that the recruiters don't know their job, just nervous.

I had others report they are using 1 computer for 2 different companies and maybe having to use a second pedal. Let's hope we are lucky.

Platform is easy to use, and the people are great to work with. sm
I only work there part-time, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.  Good luck on whatever you decide. 
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.
Does JLG have nice accounts to work on and is their platform user friendly.
TT has plenty of work. The platform is super easy to learn and
I'm not having any trouble at all making good line counts doing ESL discharge summaries. Super nice people as well.
great friendly people, IC work, pay so-so (9-1/2 cpl), clumsy platform. nm
Current information on WordZXpressed, how they are to work for, accounts, platform etc.. anyone??

Thanks for any input you may have.

Northeast Transcription, any info? Platform? Work flow? Anything?
I work on a great platform, have good QA support and make

a lot more than 8 cpl.  I even have GREAT benefits, which are more than affordable.  There are good companies out there that pays for experience!!!!

I currently work at JLG and love it. Great, user friendly platform.
They leave you alone to type.  Pay on time, never late.  Pretty well organized and good communication.  And they do not offshore!  I be sticking around.   Cubicles 

Transhealth editors? Anyone with information on pay, work schedule, benefits, platform
I would appreciate any information before taking their test without knowing the scoop.  Thanks!
They use Dictaphone EX Text platform. Very user friendly and easy to work on.
It is all strictly internet based. No extra phone lines required. They do reimburse your high speed internet up to I think $40 a month, too.
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
I love it here; easy platform, plenty of work, great communication
Been there 9 months and LOVE it!!! Plenty of work, good platform, great staff.
I finally found a home.
