Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

EMR just means they are going to complete

In Reply to: Question - TD

EMR is electronic medical record, meaning it's all on the computer, without a paper record. Why does that eliminate the need for a transcriptionist?

it's spelled right. Exo means outside and you know what phrenic means. nm
ok.... Here it is... in full and complete.

Here's one that I think is pretty complete
Yep, I'm a complete tool like that.

I thought as I aged I would grow cojones...the problem is, we moved up here and it's just so far away from friends and family, that when company does show up, planned or not, it is truly a blessing.  I am incredibly lonely up here, and as I work out of a home in a land where I don't know ANYONE except my immediate neighbors, friends have not been easy to make and, well, you can see why I have so many postings on this board. 

So, I guess I'll continue to treat people as I wish to be treated...with a big hug, a warm smile, and a "I'm so glad you were able to stop by"...and then stress out and drink black coffee laced with 1/4 pound of suger catching up on work while they sleep soundly.  I only got this one life, so I might as well try to squeeze everything into it with at least a calm and cool outer appearance    ;-)


Complete was of my time...
But I had entered a webpage trying to land accounts. No luck WSE! IMO. Good luck.
Wow, the complete series!! (sm)
You'll be busy for days!  I'd love it too, cause there are some I missed, but I figured I will rent one season at a time, or buy it if I can find a good price.  Never shopped on ebay before.  Happy viewing!!
Once you complete your training
you will have a an idea of what types of reports you have an affinity for. Some folks like acute care, others clinic work. There are those that adore radiology and detest long ops or sub-speciality consults that may require a lot of research and verification. Others feel just the opposite.

As far as software, I am not really sure what you mean. There are different requirements for different companies as far as platforms, etc. Every one has its pros and cons.
As for as reference materials, some folks like electronic references and some prefer books. Others use reliable web resources.

You will want to avoid any convoluted line counting methods to assure fair compensation and be aware of exactly what you do and don't get compensated for, but that kind of falls into the getting ripped off category.
Before he turned into a complete idiot.
I haven't seen any of his recent movies since he split with Nicole Kidman.  Of course, I saw "Days of Thunder" and "Far and Away".  Read the whole post, then try taking an English comprehension course.  Troll.
Boy I cannot complete a sentence my posts look like VR

Here's one veggie family, complete
with grandkids now.  All 8 of us.  I have a Tofurkey and also an Unturkey in the freezer for Thanksgiving.  Also, my pet turkey Bubba just died last week of natural causes, he weighed about 50 pounds.  His wife, Bubette, is still alive and well.  I always gave them extra treats on Thansgiving. 
Maybe the file wasn't complete when it
I would think complete darkness would be a bad idea.
Funny you should mention this because last night my son walked into the living room and turned off the light while I was working. He said he wanted it off while watching TV.

At first I felt like I couldn't see anything. After a few minutes, my eyes adjusted, but I had to turn the light back on because the brightness of the monitor compared to the darkness of the rest of the room actually began to hurt my eyes.

I guess it doesn't bother some, but I would think it wouldn't be very good for your eyes over time.
I do believe the JC is only concerned with files being complete as in
up to date - not gramatically correct.

ASR isn't successful? Its like 100% a complete success! Are you kidding?

MQs speech rec technology is sweeping the industry. Just run a Google, dear poster, and get your facts even remotely straight before you post!  Radiology speech rec is a HUGE success, as well as their acute care. What planet have you been living on? It needed perfecting, and, well....Its nearly there! Post facts if you must - much better than completely false ignorant claims.

Well, some accounts call for complete sentences for all. sm

Other accounts call for no abbreviations, spell out everything.  So, if the account specifics call for it, the MT is to do it.  It is not always the MT or MTSO. 


No, I'm afraid I'm a complete and utter dork...

And the really dorky thing is - I graduated from hi school in 1976 - I'm not even IN the "60's generation." If loving the Beatles makes me a dork, then, well - just call me Captain Dork!

Peace out, dude.

Same here. Complete reboot. Do they have a tech person who
Yes, I am a complete computer dummy, but where is the battery and can I replace it myself?
You have to be joking. That lady is a complete basket case.
I tell a complete stranger my whole life history practically.
I'm suddenly realizing that I have isolated myself and that I have no real friends and the only adult conversation I have is with my DH.  While I love by DH dearly and he is my bestest friend, sometimes you need other conversations/relationships. 
Yes, sort of. He isn't fast, but he is very careful and complete and polite ...
which can save time in the long run, especially when I'm typing mammograms.
The both offer a pretty complete line, but I do like the Sted's. nm
That Escription is even close to accurate is complete and total

A big ole lie on the part of anyone who says it's great or that 500 lph is possible.  It's also possible that pigs can fly. 

You sound like a complete and total idiot! I don't use that word lightly!
Is anyone else missing the complete list in the blue box? Pages seem to be smaller, too. nm
If employee, work the scheduled shift and complete the 8 hours. nm
YES, your email has COMPLETE protection on this site. We have worked VERY hard to make sure
that e-mail addresses are protected.  Spheris did not glean your email address from this site.  In the meantime, if you enter your email address in the E-mail field, you can be emailed, but the sender cannot see your email address.  They have no idea WHAT your email address is.  ONLY if YOU reply to them will the sender then find out what it is.  If you have further questions, email me and we'll discuss it.
I think what she means is....

Kent State had a lot of conflict when Nixon declared war and the students were rioting.  They were vandalizing and burning property, fighting.  They called in guardsmen.  The guardsmen threw tear gas canisters into the crowd to disperse them and the crowd starting throwing them back.  The guardsmen started shooting into the crowd.  People are still not sure why they started shooting.  I think nine people were shot, 2 died or something like that. 

Anway, I see the point though.  Things happen at college, does that mean you shouldnt send your kids?  And if you do, are you a bad parent and deserve to be judged? 

What about the parents that send their kids to school the day of the Columbine High School shooting.  I guess they deserved it because they were there?

Please tell me what this means...
I have been trying to figure out for the last five days since I started frequenting this site...but what in the world does it mean when people put things like nm and sm in their posts?  This is driving me NUTS!!
Not sure what that means. Can you
tell me what ME in the letter from MQ mean? Thanks.
What she means is (sm)
that DocQScribe does not count the characters that you input into the demographics screen, even if you have to do it all with nothing imported. This means that characters MTs previously were paid for -- patient name, dates of service, referring physicians' names, courtesy copy names/addresses, are not compensated. If you do a lot of little reports, that will mean a HUGE decrease in line count, whereas the impact won't be so bad if you do mostly long consults. Unfortunately most companies seem to be going this way, even the very nice company I'm working for now which has me hunting through blurred PDFs of faxes to find the patient information (I'm hanging in there because it's a new account and they say they'll have the demographics imported). At MQ and DSG DQS paid for spaces; I've heard that Accuscribe does not. The "red headers" are paid for. As you say, it's simple to check your line counts using Word or MedPen's counting program.

As lovely a platform as DQS is, the overall opinion seems to be that line counts drop dramatically when using it. I don't know if that's really always true since the second day I worked for DSG I did 1500 lines, but I know that I had to leave MQ after DQS as I never was able to make the money I felt I needed. There are still a few good companies out there, but you have to really search them out.
You know what I think this means? sm
The letter says pay rates are based upon experience, skill, and work difficulty.

This leads me to believe, in conjunction with what you are saying, that our rates will be based on the above criteria. Each MT has probably been evaluated and given some rating score or something that will determine each of our "specialized new" base pay.

What I'm anxious about is the fact SE is not mentioned. I have a feeling (JUST a feeling -- since employee was the only word used) they are doing away with SE. If so, no more quarterly bonus and the IRS perks that go along with SE status. That will make me VERY sad.
does anyone know what this means...sm

When I try to log on to DQS, I get a message that states that my user profile failed to download...anyone know anything about this?

Of course, I work for MQ, and hate to call them, cause it takes forever to get an answer to a simple question, so if anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it!

BTW, I have already logged out and in like a thousand times, plus restarted my computer, so that's not the problem.  TIA!

it means
turn around time
sm means
that's not what it means

it means that six times he performed a heterosexual act that resulted in conception, but that doesn't make him a heterosexual.

You can love Ford but still drive a Buick on occasion.

DVI- please tell me what this means

It may be the stupidest question but what does DVI mean and that I need to have a DVT-supported footpedal? Does anyone know where I can get one and how much it may cost?


It means don't believe everything
you read.  A bunch of overpaid suits never transcribed a day in their life.  Also they put out propaganda trying to make more money by lying.
What this means

I am required to quote my charges for contract job and they ask me to

Breakdown cost by telephone call-in to a center or audio files being sent to you.

Any one knows about it?

By all means.............sm

That would be GREAT!!!  *grins* 

Contact me whenever regarding this....oh, except when I'm in VEGAS in the autumn.  *winks*

What it means is this
There are a few posters on this site that are really negative, think they know everything, and post nasty rude responses to other people's postings. Some of us call them "trolls" and sometimes we get caught up in trying to make them see how rude they are by posting back. It never works though, and we call that feeding the trolls, or keeping an argument going that does not lead to anything good. I guess we should try to ignore their rudeness, but it is hard sometimes. How's that? Did I explain it okay?
I think she means sm

TIA as in thanks in advance. 



I think she means...
Oops.....new here.....lol!
do you know what EMR means?
It means your medical record is all electronic. She does not need to look for another job.
n/m means
NM means no more and SM means some more
no that means that they pay 9 cpl and sm
a line is 65 characters not just a line no matter how short. "Gross lines" are when you get paid for a line no matter how short.

You are not an MT I take it? Not in this country either????
Not sure what it means
but mine says 1:17???
I think that's what the poster means.
If they can't report everything why is it that missing middle or upper class white females get much more attention and help than missing [insert race here] females who come from a family with very little money. Look at the case of Laci Peterson and the attention it got compared to an exact same case of Evelyn Hernandez and her 5-year-old son. She was a pregnant woman with very little money in her third trimester carrying a baby boy, who was reported missing just months before Laci. Her body was found in the same bay yet there was barely any attention at all given to that case.  The case was never solved and in fact her son is still missing to this day and we still don't even hear much about it.  I agree with the OP.  Publicity helps in getting support and if the major news networks can report every single night for months and months on one case, why can't they report some of those nights on other cases?
Being in day care is better if it means
they get eat, have clothes to wear and have a place to live. Yeah, they need mama, but they also need those other things, too.
it means to "trick out" a car (sm)

are you referring to the show?  If so, it means they get a hunk of junk car and turn it into a show car, if you will. They usually put all kinds of electronics in it, like TVs, videogames, stereos, etc.  Actually, a lot of silliness that is just a waste of money, BUT...that's what TV is all about, right? I hope this helps!
