DocQScribe platform
Is this an easy platform to learn? Productive? Fair reporting lines? I'm considering working for a company that uses this platform. Any input appreciated.
DocQScribe Platform Users

Does anyone use the DocQScribe platform and think the line count is correct?  When I worked at MQ, after switching to DQS, my line count went down, down, down.  They did later reimburse us for an inaccurate line count, but this makes me hesitate to work for any other company that uses DQS. 

To anyone using this NOT working at MQ - it is set up so you can only get 2 jobs at a time and when you sign off your job it is automatically sent?  (I hated this feature at MQ) Would appreciate any comments about this. 

DocQscribe Platform and Medical Spellchecker.
I absolutely hate the spell check on DocQScribe and wondered if any one knows if it is possible to get another spell checker to work with it. I have Sylvan Software's Medical Spell Checker and love it in Word. I also have their Shortcut word Expander and that works in the platform automatically. It would make my life so much easier if I could get the spell checker to work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
DocQscribe Platform and Medical Spellchecker.
Does anyone know if it is possible to get a different spellchecker to work with DocQscribe? I have one from Sylvan Software that I love and I hate the one in DQS. I also have Sylvan's Shortcut word Expander and that works automatically with DQS.
DocQScribe platform - Dialup works.
Might try finding a company who uses this and see more and more do. One is DSG I think it was but might email them and ask
Dictation Services Group
Contact: Cheryl Parrish
990 Hammond Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30328

Another is Meditask -Cardiac unless has added more. Texas uses. Moretti Transcription Michigan does but difficult ESLs. Can Google and send email. Just watch the ad on MTstars and MTJobs (job sites)
Does Dictaphone footpedal work with DocQScribe platform?
If not, know where I can find a reasonable universal footpedal?
MTSO with platform versus no platform (big message)

If a MTSO advertises that the MT works in MS Word and sends dictation by FTP, does this usually mean there will be no demographic/doctor database and the demographics will not be autopopulated?


I got into a mess with a small company (got out real quickly too).  I was required to print out daily email copies of the doctors' office patient schedules (which were barely legible) and type in all information.  I spent more time hunting for the correct patient through pages and pages of these schedules.  Then I had about 25 pages worth of doctor's names that I would have to go through to find the attending, referring, etc.  A total waste of time as I didn’t get paid for that. 


I wish MTSO would give more information as to what platform they use (if any).  Proprietary software is such a generic, totally useless description.  Would they buy a new car that listed, "Car has gasoline operated motor?" 


And for Pete's sakes, why so secretive about the pay?  Give a ballpark figure.  Just say, pay is between 7-12 cpl depending on skill, testing, etc. Tell me if you pay for spaces, headers, etc.  It would save them time because I wouldn’t even apply for a 7 cpl job. 


Before I spend an hour or two testing, I need more information from a company to be sure it is compatible for my needs.  If the MTSO would spend a little time on their website detailing their platform, how they send/receive files, pay rates,  how line rate is determined (spaces/no spaces) employee/IC/SE status, minimal line count, whether work pools consist of 100s of doctors, or smaller pools with 25-50 doctors etc.   Having all this information on their website would save them time and the MTs time.   Phoenix Medcom has a really good layout describing pretty much everything an MT would want to know before testing with them.  I am just tired of testing with a company and then finding out the job wasn’t exactly suited to my needs. 

Platform versus non-platform (templates)?

I've been working for MTSOs for years now, using their templates which sometimes cause productivity problems (macro issues, etc). I'm wondering if productivity is increased when working on a structured platform, such as one that a national company provides for its transcriptionists?  I've never used a platform, but it would seem that all one needs to do is straight type onto the screen and the platform program takes care of margins, page breaks, etc?

Any thoughts (as well as companies who are hiring who use platforms) would be appreciated.  Thanks

had any luck yet?  I'm thinking of getting a few hour's sleep and logging back on later. 
Intellitype does
I'm on DocQscribe and I get
about 225 lines per hour; however, that is with 3 kids (2 little ones and 1 in school most of the time) so I think that slows me down -- waita minute, I ~know~ that slows me down. LOL.

Good luck!
Does any one use DocQScribe for their home business?  Is this an expensive program to purchase?
New to Docqscribe....
How do you add a template?  I can add short phrases, but can't figure out how to get longer things in, like a paragraph or two.  TIA!
I recently left MedQuist, and the only thing I miss is DocQscribe!


I must admit, I also like DocQScribe.  I think there are a lot of advantages to it. It sure is better than what we used to have!!!


 I was wondering if you can explore DocQScribe without having jobs download?



IT DocQscribe
Hi all,
I'm currently job shopping and found a position that uses DocQscribe, but I was told that I can't use instant text, that I have to use what is provided inside of DQS. Can anyone give me some insight, is there a workaround?

DocQscribe and SH
Thank you so much!  I used SH in the past and found it was a lot faster than Instant Text and since my trial copy is already populated, should be on my way to more lph!
IT and DocQscribe
Make sure you are using release 5.44 of Instant Text V Pro.

Textware Solutions
DocQscribe expander
When I switched from MedRite to DocQScribe the tech in my office transitioned my entire glossary over to the new platform. I had to make a few changes, but very few.
Trouble with docqscribe
I can't log on either and I have been on hold with 888-dictate for over 45 minutes.
What I meant was DocQScribe
What companies besides MQ use DocQscribe? nm
Is DocQScribe the same thing - sm

DocQScribe system help

Anyone use ShortHand and docuscribe together?  With my old company i was using Word and shorthand.  I had a macro set up to take me from blank to blank.  I am lost on this new system.  Any ideas on how to set this up?  Thanks in advance!


Could someone tell me something about how DocQScribe works......
Just wondering
DSG has PRN work and uses DocQscribe.
Hope this helps.
DocQscribe normals

I will be leaving my company at the end of the week without a job to take its place.  It's taken me several years to accumulate all my normals, and I hate to think I will have to start over creating them.  Does anyone know how to transfer/move all the normals from DocQScribe to Word or to save them on my hard drive.  I hate to think I'll have to start over creating all new normals.  Thanks for your help.


What companies use DocQscribe beside MQ & DGS. Please help!
Working for two companies is not enough, so I need another that uses DocQScribe (for easier training) and a flexible/PRN type of schedule.  Willing to work PRN weekends too.
that ding sound occurs when they Transcriptionist hits a "wrong" key unintentionally.....like accidently pressing a key repeatedly. 
But MQ is NOT the only company that uses DocQscribe. nm
DocQscribe vs. ExText
Has anyone had experience with both of these platforms, and if so, could you offer your opinion as to how they compare? 
Check DocQscribe
Need tech help with DocQScribe

I just started working for a service that uses DocQScribe and for another service as well and use the same foot pedal for both.  However, I noticed that when I log into DocQScribe and start to play the dictation file, it will start to play and then suddenly jump back to the beginning of the dictation.  The footpedal that I currently use is an Infinity IN-USB-1.  Or is DocQScribe the type of program that tends to conflict with other programs?


DocQscribe users sm

Does anyone work for more than 1 company that uses DocQscribe.  I work for 1 company with DocQScribe and just got a part-time job at another company that uses DocQscribe.  Is there any way to use DocQscribe for 2 companies on 1 computer?


DocQscribe question
Is there a way to do automatic numbering in DocQscribe?
DocQscribe question...sm
Can you use ShortHand word Expander with DocQscribe?  Also, can you see all your line counts on DocQscribe?  Hoping for a great experience.  Any info appreciated.  TIA
DocQScribe and two companies
I work for a company right now using DocQScribe and I am considering working for another DocQScribe company.  Do I need to have two instances of DQS, one for each, or with the separate log in can I continue to just use the same installation?
I don't use DocQscribe nor do I know what the expansion

formula looks like, but if you can open it up in Notepad and manipulate the formula to look like this, tp=the patient, then you can import them into EXText.  I don't have my EXText in front of me so this is from rough memory.  Once you have your expansions in the above formula, save them in Notepad on your desktop.  In EXtext click on Options, Import file from Text(?), in the drop down box click on Desktop, click on your saved list, put an = sign in the delimiter box, click on Ok or import or whatever the next step is (lol...told you it was from rough memory).  Once these are imported you'll need to save your ESP list.  It is really simple to import once you have your expansions in the right formula.  I'll check back here in a little bit and answer any questions I can.  I'll be working tonight and may be able to give better step-by-step instructions once I have the actual program up and running.


DocQscribe update-help
We just updated to 5.13 version of docQscribe..and now I can't connect--I turned autoprotect in norton off--and it still says 'docQscribe cannot connect' when I try signing on...HELP!

Question on this
DocQScribe and Other Platforms

I have Emdat and Transurfer on this computer and all attempts to get jobs in DQS have been thwarted.  No idea why.  Never had this problem before.  Voice file just shows "buffering" and never goes beyond that.  If anyone knows a fix, I would love to hear it.  Thanks!

Docuscribe and DocQscribe
Are these 2 platforms the same? TIA
DocQScribe instructions

Where can I find instructions on this platform?


DocQscribe question

I have just started working in DocQScribe and cannot get the volume to increase.  I think I might be reading the instructions incorrectly.  I am trying to use control, number pad, ++ key.  Is this correct?  what number on the number pad should I use?  Should I try control ++ at the same time? Any suggestions to get the volume to increase in DocQscribe?


DocQscribe and Smartype
Can anyone tell me if I can use my expander, Stedman's Smartype, with DocQscribe. I understand DocQScribe is a great platform.
DocQScribe for Speed
What companies use this platform?
DocQScribe Playback Speed

Over the past months I have been trying to convince superiors at MQ of the need to have the playback speed increased even more than we are able to at the present.  I proofread all reports and when you have a slow dictator, it can take forever.  If you agree, please make a post and maybe that will convince them to do something about it.

Are you trying to say you work on DocQScribe on dial-up????

And I had to pay for connection fee and modem for the DSL????

I hope I am misunderstanding you!grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Other than MQ, what other companies utilize DocQScribe??

Lines DocQScribe - Touchworks
