Just be aware that not all Escription accounts pay the same. I worked for one company on Escription
struggling to maybe make $50 in 8-10 hours. I didnt know the difference as that was my first job on that platform and I just thought it was not a money maker. Then, I switched companies. I average $20-30 an hour and once I made $50 in an hour. I tried yet another company and I was lucky to make $9 an hour. The bottom line is that not all companies are alike, even though they use the Escription platform. What I have found is that goes according to how they set it up i.e. paying for footers, headers, spaces etc. Just dont be shocked if you dont make what you think you will. The companies know how to set it to where it benefits them and not you. As is the norm, not all companies are created equal out there regardless if they all use the same platform. That is what I am getting out.. Good luck.

I've heard that DaVenture Health Partners was recently made an approved vendor, but as of today they are not posted on the eScription website yet.
Has anyone out there worked on Escription?  If so, what are your thoughts.  Can you make any money at it since it pays so much less?
Does anyone know of any companies that use Escription, OTHER than Transcend and MDI-FL?  Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance
They use Escription. nm
Thanks! What is the VR Escription like? Thanks. nm
Anyone working on escription, could you give me some advice on increasing my productivity.  Sometimes, I do okay and then other days it is so slow going. 
Any MDI MTs doing eScription
If you are employee as above, please tell me how things are there - is it a good place to work?
Any MDI MTs doing eScription
That says a lot. Thanks.
MDI-FL ad for escription MTs?

Anyone work there that can give me more details? What's the pay for editing there, dictators, atmosphere, etc? Also what about the radiology ad? Do they pay by report or by line? Thanks for any help.



Do any of you use this platform?  Do you like it?  Is is productive?  Can you give a time frame for the learning curve?  Any replys greatly appreciated.......thanks.
EditScript is Word based. It's very easy to learn. Works with Word AutoCorrect to save your shortchuts, etc. Very reliable from a technical point of view. Our facility just went live about 98 days ago, all 22 MTs are loving it. Most have already increased their productivity from our old ChartScript days. Does a really good job with speech recognition even with some horrible dictators - consistency among the MTs is key to that success.

Very nice platform, very MT friendly !

That sounds great.  I appreciate you letting me know that.......I needed to hear something positive.
I used to work where they had escription but was paid hourly at that point because we had just gotten it. Sorry no help. Good luck!
What is escription? nm
Their pay is low for escription, which is
probably why they are always running an ad.
USUALLY, not always, the doctor puts in the MR number which automatically pulls in the patient name. Some companies have you do a type of search using that number to pull in the DOS, DOB, location, referring doc all at once.
Pay escription
I'm a little confused by the pay. It sounds like they convert edited lines into a percentage of typed lines so you aren't getting paid a per line for editing. I think.
What company pays the best for escription?????  You can get through the reports fast but cannot seem to make the money as well as I can typing!  I like the fact the hands get a break but come on!
it's okay after you get used to it - haven't come close to the 600 lines per hour that you are supposed to do - and pay for editing is less than half of transcription line pay - but you definitely do not have to type as much - less stress on your hands and wrists. 
It is not difficult to learn but I found it to be slower than regular old typing.

Can anyone tell me which companies use eScription?



I've used it in clinical and hospital settings.
I only do eScription.
I only work on the eScription platform right now. I've never used Emdat/Inscribe.
I amm a radiology Transcriptionist and I would like to learn eScripition editing.  Do you know of any companies that offer training on eScription? 
Go to MT Daily.  They just placed an ad looking for eScription MTs.  They might be looking for editors.  Also, try Lee Perfect.  They are always hiring.
I have never used it, but if you say it's only editing then you are probably correct. I just saw it posted on MT Daily today.
I Like eScription
I've used eScription, and I really like it.     The people at the company are great.
Well, I'm on eScription.
And frankly I've been using it so long, I can't remember what all it comes with. I have stedman's on my PC and I know EditScript has some of it's own spellcheck things in there. If you contact whomever your supervisor is, they can let you know. :-)
an hour can you edit? Is 700 an hour really possible?? TIA
I was hired with no experience in eScription. It was not a problem to learn at all- a couple of days to get used to it. I love the company I am working for now.
I will be working eScription. UMass.

eScription Pay
I haven't noticed any changes in the way that lines are counted with eScription. Who do you work for? Maybe they've made some changes.

Also, I get 3.9 cents per line for editing (8 for typing), and I am a very happy camper. I think that eScription works very well. It isn't perfect, but it usually does a pretty good job.
I'm on 5 escription there.
I had work maybe 3 days a week for the last month.
Have heard so many great things about this, is it really that good, what about 85% VR?
Escription is so much better than DocQscribe. It picks up medical terms and meds more easily. You do not have to put in skip or redundant markers, which I thought took a lot of time.
eScription is the best!
Great product.

We just switched to Version 8. It's amazing. Even faster than their last version.

DeVenture uses Escription.
Proveros has lots of accounts
Is that on eScription? nm
Yes I am on escription. sm
Do you make decent money working for them? That is the main thing I am worried about. I am coming from a job with a set paycheck, and I am worried about having to work for a national that doesn't have enough work.
I know many people like eScription, but to be honest, i will never take a job that uses that platform ever again.  The lines do NOT add up and i have noticed most places that utilize eScription are mostly VR, 2nd or 3rd shifts. 
I just saw an add for an EVENING IC position at 0.03 edited and 0.07 transcribed. Unless the account is heavily templated, I would consider this a slap in the face. I'm not opposed to VR, but I am opposed to not being able to pay my bills. What has happened to this profession?? javascript:editor_insertHTML('text','');
TT eScription
Does anybody out there work for the huge cancer center account that uses eScription?  Pros?  Cons?  Bringing home the same paycheck as with straight transcription?
You must be on escription.

if it's Escription....
even though they SAY it's 60% editing it will soon be all editing, as Escription automatically converts it to editing after so many reports are dictated. so you will soon be working for 5 cents a line. I just left a job that went to Escription as I couldn't make any $$ doing it...like $7/hour on my BEST day, and I've been at this 15 years.

do you know which version it is? 6 is okay, but 8 is a nightmare. how computer savvy are you? do you like learning new platforms and software? if you get flustered easily and hate it, it's something to consider also.

good luck and hope this helps.
Can someone tell me is there a way that I can program EMON to give me a grade on a document that someone has typed or if there is a program that will deduct points to find out an MTs average on their work
You should try Transcend. They have a LOT of escription accounts as well as other voice recognition programs. I know for sure on escription they have some radiology accounts. If you need any information I can get it to you. Good luck in your search!
