I use ExText and love it
I use it with OSi. I also use Shorthand, and it works just fine.

I really like the searching capabilities... You can search by worktype, doctor, patient, and by MT (so you can pull up your own old reports). The search features are the best thing in my opinion. They've saved me a lot of blanks.

ExText and I love it
I love ExText
I have never worked in Chartscript before, so I can't say anything about it, but I do work in ExText and LOVE it. It is so very easy to use and very easy to make a great line count in. I do all ER reports and discharge summaries, and it is great.
I use EXText with Medware and love it
Very easy to install, I had typed on EXText at a previous service so I was familiar with the platform, but it is quite easy to use.
I work in ExText and love it
My main account is mostly templates, and it is an extremely easy ER account with about 8 doctors. I easily do between 400-500 lines per hour on that account. My secondary account is on Chartscript, and I do about 300-350 lines per hour on that account. I love them both.
I would love to know too, I love EXText
I love ExText...calm down..it'll be okay
ExText is extremely easy. You've got your demographics screen...easy...and then you're in your document.  You know what's great about ExText? It's so easy to search for past reports by provider, by patient, by MT.  It's very straight forward and a very easy system to learn in my opinion.  You get past the demo screen, finish the document, ctrl-N, it spellchecks, you're done. Voila!
I loved Bayscribe ... also love ExText ... sm

really haven't found any platform I truly hate.  Nowadays, you just have to be adaptable.  I used Wordperfect (DOS) back when it was 3-something, and I knew it like the back of my hand.  But everything changes ... so now I know Word and various derivations ... Iscriptor, Extext, Webnedx's platform (a bit cumbersome but still doable), the old YOG Cottage program ... you name it.   I no longer work there (I wanted to be an employee and have benefits and such), but I think anyone who walks away from MDI-MD because they hear negative things about Bayscribe is doing themselves a huge disservice.  I made 11 cpl when I left, had decent accounts, and great liaisons.  To stick your heels in the sand and say Bayscribe stinks just seems foolish to me ... but that's just my opinion.  Opinions ... and ... uh .. other things .. we all have them (smile).

Of course, I also have to admit, still going back to my WP51/PRD days ..... I LOVED PRD, and have adapted to similar Expanders such as ShortHand and autocorrect in Word and such ...... but I watch people on this board exclaim about how wonderful Instant Text is, and I want to puke (ha).   I worked for Healthscribe for about a month (it's not even here anymore, and they were the kingpin of offshoring, I later discovered) ..... I hated that stupid popup box and such with IT.  I want to just use my own little abbreviations I can memorize and hit the space bar.  But that's just me.  And if I found a great company who insisted I use IT .... I'd learn to like it, or at least tolerate it.

Uhoh ... this started out as just a defense of Bayscribe (honestly, the line counts on it are great ... I did a minimum of 300 lph, and if I really focused and had some good dictators, it could be more like 350, and I only have about 1000 abbreviations) ... and somehow I got sidetracked.  Sorry ..... sign of an old lady up too late at night with no brain left (ha).  

Bottom line ...... I have been an MT for a long time.  If I can ever help anyone with anything, I'd be happy to try.  Feel free to email me anytime. 

Love ExText platform but not sure about companies as I'm an IC. nm
Totally agree,I love ExText
I have been working in ExText for months and love it. All of my lines are very accurate and I make an awesome line count every day working in it. I wouldn't want to work on any other platform!
I love ExText. Why do you say run? It is fast, easy to use sm
and my line counts are right on the money (verified often).

General statements can be misleading. Just because YOU had a bad experience, why tell people to run from a platform that is used by literally thousands and hospitals????
I love ExText, others don't. It'll eat a report once in a while, but otherwise it's easy to
Also love ExText even though the line counts can be low. Easy to use! nm
Sounds like you are talking about ExText - I love it. I use my shorthand AND the built-in ESP.
I lost an acct with MQ, called the hospital and they told me who had the acct. I chose not to go wi
Older posts about them have the MTs bouncing from acct to acct and not being able to make
My acct mgr sent an update this morning stating a large acct sm
starting next week; another in 2 more weeks; another in early October; and another in November. This is just a normal end of summer / holiday slowdown. I'm sure other posters on this board are also out of work due to the same circumstances.
Give it a whirl. I WAS on that same acct, same pay. Asked and got put on an acct just as bad, so I
How was your acct at Amphion? I have a HORRIBLE acct...

I am new to Amphion and have this account that has a lot of account specifics, no automatic ADT (which means I have to search for the names, etc) which is not a problem for me, but there is one dictator who is ALWAYS awful, and I have been getting him back to back to back my first week with Amphion.  Did you find that you basically only had 1 or 2 dictators while there or did you have more?  Of course, I would not mind doing him occasionally but can't do this all day.  I will never be able to make any money, especially at the line rate that I am being paid.  I have 2 children of my own and 3 of my sister's children in my care.  I cannot afford to do this everyday and don't know what to do.  I work as an IC for another company making 9 cents a line, which is much more than Amphion, but really wanted employee status so was willing to make a little less, but I am afraid it is not going to work.  I do not want to have to find yet another company and start all over with them to only find out that they suck too.  Any suggestions?

9cpl and 11 cpl for weekends. Use ExText. My ExText version wasn't compatible with theirs
Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
I too love path & can't find it at home & would love to cross-train into rad in the meantime I do
Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
Does anyone think 41 is too old to go to nursing school. I love MT but I just would love to be a
nurse.  I have such a interist in helping others and the medical world.
VA acct w/ops 9. NM
It is probably true because it is a radiology account.

which acct
which account are you currently working on, or you would say is a bad one. Thanks
What acct
What acct do you work on? If you are on BeyondTxt T mode there is no work. I don't know how you girls who need benefits are paying for them.
Thanks for replying. The problem is I did have my own account and they decided not to pay me for over a month and because I said something about not being paid they took offense. SO what can you do. Its a win-lose situation. Now I just have to hope that the check clears!
KS Onc acct
If you are working on the KS onc acct please email me.
FN New acct
Are we talking about the new acct with the 1 million lines?.  What a joke.  I'm lucky to do 500 lines a day and that is only by working on 3 different accts.  And I found out the new acct will be going to VR, which I don't do.  I'm a transcriptionist, not an editor.
KS acct

Do you know which acct you would be working on?

If it were your acct, you would already know.
They don't keep it a secret. One of mine, large hospital on the East Coast, is leaving today. I've known for at least a month. They chose not to renew their contract with us. It happens.
.06 OB acct
I felt the same way, ladies. In fact, I recently went from a .0725 (knocked down from 0.825) GROSS LINE ACCT to a .06 transcription rate acct with HORRIFIC docs - worst I've had since starting ne.arly 23 years ago. I was offered VR (with even worse docs, so basically re-typing it ALL) for .02 cpl.

I guess you can understand why I'm on the job hunt
Love, love, love DeVenture
Super nice, flexible and just all around nice to work for.
Love, love, love Axolotl
I totally love Axolotl.  Just as A-team said, fantastic benefits.  Yes, strict schedule, but never ever had a problem getting off when I needed to.  I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. 
Is this a rad acct and do they have openings? (nm)
I loved that acct too....
Typical M-Q then one day it just vanished.
my acct has about 80-90% ESLs
my back up account is worse. 
That seems like it could be true, my acct is So Cal
and most of the patients are not Caucasian or are ethnic (is that PC?), as well as the dictators.
Same here, about 40-50 regular drs on my acct, with
probably 10 of them being so awful, I can hardly attempt them. I'm happy to say that some I hated at first are now ones I enjoy, so hopefully I will keep finding that to be the case. Others though, UGH!
No, DRC is not really "atrocious acct" but... sm
It is NOT easy stuff... My experience has been lots of cutting-edge oncology in all specialties. If you don't know your stuff you'll be researching more than typing. Very few ESLs and, yes, the platform is Word-based, and, no, no need to be a computer wiz--tech support is great at DRC and so is QA support.
Your radiology acct
Are you working certain hours/days/evenings and are you working weekends?  What is holiday pay per report?
Your radiology acct
Do you have a lot of ESL docs?
TT onco acct

Can't you get a backup account?  That's what I did.  They are not all slow at the same time, usually.  I get better count on onco acct than on my other.

Well I was doing VR for an acct at 1.80 report. sm
They cut pay to 3.5 to 5.5 cents per line under the manager I was under. I know a lot of people left. Just curious as to if any are here on this board.
Ortho acct
i have been offered ortho, which i have a great deal of experience. How much would you say per hour you make at 7.5 WI spaces. I really have a lot of quesstions and if possible would like to e-mail you direct. Also can the ShortHand program be used
I know which acct you are talking about but (sm)
trust me (or not) there are TONS of work on others, one I know FOR SURE.  Have you asked for a backup??
what acct?...email me....nm
I always get a mix, no matter which acct I am on.
Just how EZ is it to get off of the DI entry acct
