Enterprise Platform - sm

Any MTs with experience using Enterprise platform for transcribing - I am interested to know if you can get a decent line count and how many lines per hour you are averaging.  


Is it possible to do 350 lph on that platform?


We use enterprise
Their weekend rates, which are from Friday morning until Monday, are incredibly cheap, as low as 70.00 for the entire weekend with unlimited mileage.  Our car is old so if we want to go anywhere or do serious running around, that's what we do.  We have rented luxury cars or 4-door trucks for about 150.00.  We signed up for the quick online ordering and we get emails to upgrade 3 steps for the price of an economy car all the time.
so far Enterprise
is my favorite. I find it easiest to use and fast..   the other ones I have worked on are TWS and Cornerstone. 
Enterprise speech
No, currently working in-house at a local hospital.  The hospital recently leased the program and we are all having troubles.
Document Enterprise System I think

Enterprise Express Test
Does anyone know if you can use ShortHand word Expander with this Dictaphone system? Thanks in advance.

Teachers/tutors new Indian enterprise
National news a couple of weeks ago - kids that need tutors can now get a good deal on an Indian tutor over the internet.  During story internet connection went down and class was dismissed. 
Dictaphone Enterprise Express Speech Rec. SM

I am supposed to do some practice speech rec jobs tonight during my shift.  I'm all set to go except that in my Dictaphone manual, I do not have the chapter pertaining to the speech rec function keys, etc.  Now, I could wait to start training tomorrow and call my supervisor and asked for the missing chapter or I am hoping one of you wonderful ladies can give me a head start and let me know the important function keys I need to know so I can get going on this.  It has taken me weeks to get this far.  I had to have a the training Editor installed and a upgrade patch downloaded and if one more thing stalls me, I'm going to lose my ever lovin' mind!


So if you can help me out, I would really appreciate it!


 


Thanks!


Webmedx-Enterprise and Instant Text HELP!!!
I am a hopelessly devoted IT user.  I have been honing (sp) my IT glossaries for 5 years now, and am very proud of them.  I just recently started at WMX, and I find I am having a lot of problems using IT.  For anyone else who has used Enterprise with IT, what are your thoughts?  Does it get any better or should I just try to switch over the SH.  I am really enjoying WMX, but I am just not sure I am ready to let go of my faithful friend IT
Dictaphone Enterprise Express Editor

Enterprise Express Speech - Nuance Dictaphone

Is there anyone from UPMC Health Systems in Pittsburgh, PA, who is currently using this system?  If so, I would like to chat, ask a few questions, and maybe get some pointers.  Thanks a bunch.


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 didnít 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 wouldnít 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 wasnít 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


platform?
on my platform you can do a control/+ (the one near the backspace) to enlarge the text...
What platform do you use?

I am bored, and trying to get aquanited to the boards, so I am posting a little spree here. 


What platform do you use?  I use Extext by Dictaphone.  Like it so far.


How can they tell? Which platform?
Besides, it's not canned text.  LOL  That's a feature in Meditech.  If you use an expander, it's an "expansion".  Those are two different things there.  Isn't it open to interpretation?  If I were in your shoes, I'd download the trial version of ShortHand just to see if it worked and to see if they could detect it.  It's asinine to not be able to use expanders.  Why wouldn't the company want the work done faster and potentially more accurately?  I know there are some really long words that I have to stop to remember how to spell, so those are in my expander.
WOW!! Do you really think that? Platform is what
is used to type. You must be new to the biz. Also you cannot work for Amphion. You would know if you did.
Different platform
I'm w/ Baltimore office, still working on INET. Hearing that won't be for long, not many accounts left on it.
EP-1 Platform
Can anyone tell me about the EP-1 platform for spheris?
what platform is it that they use?
was it easy to learn?
New platform?
Perhaps the platforms should offer grammar checks as well then.......hmmmmm. UH OH, perhaps we just opened up a can of worms!
What platform are you?
Sounds like you have ideas worth sharing with whomever designed the platform.
MDI-FL has a platform
I worked for them earlier this year. I now cannot remember the name of it. It seems like something that would have been used in the 70s or 80s. I don't know if they use it on all of their accounts, but I had a very hard time with it. It took too long to search for the patient and MD data...it also froze up on me many times and I would have to restart my computer which caused me to lose all lines I had typed. I absolutely hated it. Horrible spell checker.

I now work for Sten-Tel who has a 'word' based internet platform called EditScript which is a breeze. I love it and have never had any problems with it.
New Platform...SM

I started on a new platform about two weeks ago and am finding it HORRIBLE!


I normally get between 130-170 lph, depending on dictators.  Today I worked four hours and had 200 lines


It is a word-based platform.  To put in a QA marker you put in spaces, highlight them change screens, use the mouse (no shortcut keys) click add, save, and then back to your screen.  To remove a QA marker, you have to change screens, use mouse click on QA marker number, and then click delete...  You also have to do this to look up or edit doctors, patient info...


In all honesty from anyone who has worked on such a platform, WILL I GET FAST ENOUGH TO KEEP MY CHILDREN FROM STARVING?


Thanks in advance


new platform
what's the name of the platform?
MTS platform
Does anyone know who uses MTs platform?
What is the platform like??
I get paid hourly ($15), so the platform doesn't really matter that much. Would you mind telling me about how much that rounds out to an hour? Just wondering if I'm making the right amount or if I should look elsewhere. Thanks.
is a platform...
i using express scribe and have been reading here about platforms, is express scribe considered a platform?  I have did MT for over ten years in an office setting but this is my 1st at home position and am unfamiliar with the platform. In the office setting we only used microcassettes and typed verbatim. So please forgive my ignorance in this realm.  Would someone be willing to explain or give an example.  I would appreciate it. I like to be knowledgable in the aspects of mt and feel you're never too old to be knowledgable. Thanks!!
Platform

Is anyone familiar with a platform called Medquist Cquence?  The service I work for has a client who uses this.  I am having a particularly difficult time learning this system.  Would you care to share what you think of it.  Is it worth the time spent in learning it, and once you do learn it, do you get a decent line count?


TIA


Anyone know MD-IT's platform?

Platform...
Platforms are simply the different software that companies use to transcribe and edit their documents. Each company has their own "platform."
Platform that will allow you to do this
We have a platform that allows you to do this.  The platform allows you to type and then it sends the completed report to an ASP platform that the users will have their own logins and can access any report via a secure site on the internet.  If you want more information, please email me at amy.newton@medcoretech.com.  We only charge per line, no setup fees, no monthly minumums.  We have tons of MTSOs and clients that use our system.  I hope that helps.  Thanks,
MTS Platform
Is Express Scribe better than Transcription Gear or Bytescribe - even though you have to pay. And how about ExText - can that be purchased?
What platform is it if you use your
own computer? Do they have editscript or anything like it? Do you know what the line rates basically run and how good the incentives are? Is the work steady? I'm just looking for a good decent place to work that won't cheat me or make it almost impossible to actually make any lines. All information appreciated.
Platform
I just do not like that platform.  I will never work on it ever again if at all possible.  It is horrible.  Good luck finding an MT that does like it. 
Which is better platform????
I have been offered a job with a company that uses EMDAT/Inscribe and also offered a job at DeVenture who uses the SHINE platform?  Are they both terrible, or is one better than the other?  Would like to hear your opinion, please.  Thank you.
Platform
Try looking at the InfraWare ASP. It's very user friendly and easy to market.

I have used Dictaphone when I was working for a smaller company and did like it, but now I am out on my own and have an office that uses Word and a wav pedal and I email the work to them. I like this way too. I have heard that people do like Dictaphone as a platform, but I am unsure of the cost.. I use Express scribe to download the files and my wav pedal. Express scribe is free so I do like that there is no cost to me on that end.


What platform do you use?

I can't see who's working, can't see how much work there is, just keep going until I run out.


No platform
Simply typing in Word in a running document.  No time for all the saving of individual files, special headers/footers, etc....too time consuming.
more than one platform
Right now I have four different platforms on my computer with no problems.
Platform
WebchartMD  by far the best with the best support  above and beyond  you will love them!
The best platform to me was
NO platform. The easiest, fastest lines for me were back when we just used MS Word or WP51 and FTP.
don't know if this is a platform
But definitely WP51 for DOS which I still use. When i have tried the new technology, i have lost SIGNIFICANT amounts of money....
Best platform...
I use VoiceScribe with MS Word, and I really like it.
What platform do you use?
I cannot see the amount of work in any of my accounts at any time. I get the next available job. I guess not knowing who gets what alleviates a lot of headache.
platform
I have six accounts. I know the order they are in my queue. I do not know how much work is in any of them at any time. Some days I never get past the first account. When I finish 1 job the next one automatically pops up and I do whatever comes up for whatever account. It is quick and easy, no muss, no fuss.

I also do not know who is working or how many people work on any of the same accounts I'm on. Since I've been working at home (12 years), I have never had access or known how many people have thrown back a job before I've gotten it. I just do what comes to me and move on.
we don't know what platform
you are working on so it's hard to say. It does sound like Spheris though! When I worked there, to get around between the editing screen and the other screens (where you add patient information, add a cc, etc) I did not use the mouse. I used the function keys, and I reassigned the function keys (in Shorthand) to keys I thought were not as awkward. On the patient information screen I used tab and alt tab to move between fields.   But your platform might be different.
Tell me what platform
you are using. Some are better than others.
I use the same platform
and I do love Escription. From what I have heard, it seems to be 1 if not the best. I make 4 cents a line on VR but I also have some straight mixed in with the VR. It might be you are not up to speed with what you will be able to do because it is new to you and takes awhile to get there. I did straight for so many years and now donít care if I see another straight typed report.
