FlashCount Invoice Program...

I would love to use MT Stars FlashCount for invoicing, although I cannot seem to find a solution on how to get the typed reports to the program without having to click on each one by the patients last name.  It would just be too time consuming and not worth it if that is how it needs to be done.  Is there a trick to this?  I do about 300 reports a week for 4 doctors (and I save all reports for about a month on my computer), so I am looking for the quickest and most dependable way to invoice. 

Thanks for any and all advice. 


Invoice program - user friendly
I currently use Abacus for line counting. I need a separate program for line counting and hourly work that is very user friendly. Any advice?
Thank you MTStars for the most wonderful gift!
Thank you, MTStars, for the gift in return for my donation to Santa's House.  That was very generous.  I am thrilled!  And also, thank you for providing us with this forum where we can receive support from our fellow MTs.  Happy Holidays to All!
I meant that you had to trust your line counting/invoice program, not the employer! :) nm

Is gearplayer a free program?

I have never used gear player before and was told that I would need to use the gearplayer software and a comparable footpedal to type files.  I am used to express scribe which is free and using my infinity foot pedal. Is gear player a free program like scribe or am I going to have to pay for it?

Get Hijack, it is a free program
There is a free program called Belarc you
can download.  It will tell you processor speed, RAM, hard drive, sound card - every little thing about your computer.  I used it with Win98 and WinXP.  Google Belarc for website. 
downloading free word program
has anyone ever used open office to download word so a test can be taken?  I rent a computer from my company and I know I probably should not do this.  My question is would they know if this is being done?  Thank you.  
I agree, very excellent free program. sm
You could also run your *disc Cleanup* program to delete files, etc. Also go to My Computer, Internet Options, and Delete. Delete files, cookies, and internet history. That all helps! good luck.
Can use a free program called Audacity.
I have only heard about this and have not found the need to do it myself yet, but heard it works great.

Here is a website someone passed to me:


If you Google "tapes to digital," there are a lot of sites that give directions.

Good luck.

My supe puts NOTHING in an email

other than her little account update. She will NOT respond to an email (nothing in writing) to any questions at all -- she picks up the phone and calls.  I have sent her several emails with concerns -- NO RESPONSE -- but my phone will ring at home -- I guess I will start recording my phone conversations with her !!!

I have asked for a LONG TIME about my account "going bye bye", and because the work was no longer there. Only this week did she say that it had gone to VR -- she would not put that in writing, or even hint that the account was going by the way, and believe me, I have asked her where the work has gone. When you have been on an account for a long time, an MT knows when the works "dries up." Doesn't she?

So basically, the supe's responsibilities are to email account updates 2 or 3 times a day, beg for the MT to take on ANOTHER new account that she has been handed down to her team (to slow the MT down), beg for the MT to work WHEN SHE NEEDS YOU (not when you were scheduled to work -- because the overseas MT's was not going to work that day and she needs you, or ASR equipment was down), be team cheerleader in an email occasionally when you have made HER look good, take care of the little kids they have at home with them. That pretty well describes the supe on my team.

Hey, my family puts the FUN in dysFUNctional!
RadGuy, you could start a blog and publicly post your family's antics for the whole world to see. Just kidding.... It sounds as if a cruise or weekend getaway is in order!
Official policy puts it best . . .
from the 2002 AAMT Book of Style:

"Obscenities, profanities, and vulgarities do not belong in a patient's record unless they are part of direct quotations that are essential to a report."

In 20+ years of transcribing, mostly psychiatry, with, as one might imagine, a lot of profanity, I've always just typed whatever the clinician quoted the patient as saying, and have never had a complaint.

Good luck,

Then the rest of us are stuck listening to Ho Chi Minh struggling through a neurosurgical op note because we're "more skilled and able to handle it," and end up making about 50 cents an hour. When you think about it, it's easy to get "punished" for not sucking at this job and the rest of us end up pulling the slack for the dead lumber that took a 2-week correspondence course and have to be spoon-fed easy reports for reasons unknown to me.
Doc is using software to do his own reports that puts the symbol after trade drug names and
I'm wondering if anyone is aware of a software program, maybe voice recognition, that does this? (I coudn't access the VR board to ask).  This is one doctor in a practice that I transcribe for and I usually do his transcription for him, but the last time I logged into their computer to send them their files, there were reports in his file that I didn't transcribe that have this behind the trade names.  I want to do a little research before talking to the practice.  TIA

Stating you are "seasoned editor" at 18 years, guess this puts me in the higher-ups at my 33+
it would seem to me that you, with your experience, should let her know being a nurse alone does not make 1 a good MT. Like I said, I think a person should get some education in this field, having an RN does not necessarily mean a good transcriptionist. I cannot believe the posts I read on this thinking what a dream job just because I, want to stay home with the kids, want to keep my animals company and think easy because I don't have to leave my home to work. Any MT worth their salt does not do this job just for selfish reasons.
Need help with invoice...
Does anyone have any samples or know where I can obtain some. I have looked everywhere. I did a fill-in transcription job for the past week and now I need to submit an invoice, but I have never done one. Please help!!!
No, you don't have to invoice.
No, you don't have to invoice. They take the lines from the line counter which I have been having trouble with lately, don't know about you. It seems like I am doing an awful lot more work than getting credit for.
Their invoice
Did you use their invoice form? If not, he will not pay nor contact you saying why.
