    Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
    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).
    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. 
    Thanks. What platform do they use and is Word compatible?

    How about straight Word platform at
    Easy enough? Is Meditech anything like that? I've never used Meditech personally.
    I don't think it's a platform. I think it is just typing in Word. nm
    Is that a Word-based platform?
    I just applied for that position and they e-mailed me with some questions.
    If you are working in a Word platform
    and not some confabulated platform, then the autocorrect that is part of MS Word is more than adequate for macros and expanding words. That is all I have used for the last 10 years and do just fine. Save your money.
    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. 
    FN uses iType platform for Word...nm
    MDI-FL - is the internet platform/MS word a good

    platform.  I understand they have about 4 different platforms.  I would be interested in the proprietary internet platform that uses MS Word.  Is it user friendly and productive, can you see your line counts immediately, what type of short cut Expander is used, and the type of voice player to download jobs?


    Company that uses MS word insteadof their platform.

    Did  a search, did not come up with any.  TIA

    Their own platform. Shorthand, Word based. nm
    I type in Word and use the Scribe platform...
    but I don't use a C-phone...
    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.
    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
    Is Apex an internet word-based platform? Havent heard of it...
    small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
    ExText is integrated with Word. Auto correct is a part of Word.
    ExText is a Word based platform. When the page opens for you to type the document it will be just like you are typing in MS Word.
    anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me nm
    Just wanna work in Word - need company that works in WORD! nm
    Their program works with Word and does not change how Word functions. sm
    You use your own expander. Overall I feel it is user friendly and I like it.
    Word for Word Medical Transcription
    Pros and cons please.
    In his ad, he's asking for Word Perfect, not Word, if that matters. nm
    Now I wish they would just call me back......no word no word and
    What is up with these MT companies that advertise. They don't even answer. I have a great resume, tons of experience. I'm confused.
    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. 

    word for word company
    does anyone know about word for word transcription company?  how are they to work for, platform?  thanks in advance!
    I was told I could use word pad since I don't have word

    I have 1 computer to speak of that I did not buy personally.  the company has their own platform and their own computer to be rented.  I would not be typing in word.  I have never had a problem testing this way before.  I am not saying certified is better.  I was explaining my circumstance.  I have my own personal computer ordered for my use and I wanted to test fast without waiting. geez.

    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.

    "overtime" is not a generic word. "incentive" is a generic word. Over time means time
    In Word..
    Select the tools menu and then Autocorrect. Then check the box next to capitalize First letter of sentences.

    Are you using Word? sm
    If you are using Microsoft Word you can change the background to something that suits your eyes and the text to a lighter color. 
    One word - RUN!!!!
    Owner is not all there, if you know what I mean. There are better places to work. Let them hire overseas. Perhaps those workers will put up with their garbage treatment.
    Everything is done in Word
    plenty of samples though, and she pays per gross line, not 65 characters.
    I have Word 2003 and it works just fine
    A (only one word)
    One word? Looks like 6 to me.
    word for word
    I worked for them and they can be fair, which is hard to find these days with others. I was a new MT and they gave me a chance that no one else would consider doing. good luck
    Same here...no word nm
    The new word for lay off.

    The new word is idle, used as a verb.  I doubt that the MTs will remain idle for long.  What terrible writing, and what a terrible deal for MTs.  I wonder whether Ormond will be happy when people from another country are transcribing his family's medical records.


    Meanwhile, the company issued a federal layoff notice this week that it will idle 102 workers in its Heartland Information Services medical-transcription unit. Seven employees are in Toledo. A company spokesman said the cuts will occur in early July.

    Toledo Blade.



    Still no word.....sm

    Patience is not one of my greatest virtues! lol  Anyway, if someone gets a response from Editors Wanted, could you email me please?  Thanks!

    Take MY word for it, -
    I simply must disagree...
    Take my word for it,
    I've been paid both ways. Yes, they will say that all the exams equal themselves out, but with CT and MRI exams, etc. you can get some really long reports. You may get lucky and have short reports, but I highly doubt it!
    Does anybody still use MS Word
    I have started with two companies in the past six months (as an IC) using MS Word on my own computer, and no sooner did I get up to speed than they switched over to a platform.  I can learn the platforms ok but just want to type and get paid; no BS.  The platforms I've worked on all created more problems than they solved, especially with word expanders.  And the line counts are no longer under your control, you have to accept whatever they tell you.  Am I the only one who feels this way?  The people I'm with now tell me to have patience and they'll work out the bugs in the system, but tell that to my mortgage company!
    One word. (sm)
