System Properties

Posted By: Glory1863 on 2007-07-20
In Reply to: Not easy on win 2000 computer either. - Does not work on Win 2000

I have Windows XP Media Center Edition on an HP Pavilion Desktop.

Click on Start button.  Click on My Computer.  At the top of the left-hand pane is a box called System Tasks.  Click on View System Info.  This opens a window called System Properties.  Choose the General Tab.  It will tell you what version of Windows you are running at the top.  The bottom tells you the kind of computer, the type of processor and its speed and the amount of RAM.  In my case 1.93 GB.

Rental properties and TurboTax sm
Anyone have rental properties and do your own taxes with TurboTax?  We used to have rentals and the accountant did the taxes but charged us like close to $400.00 for our return.  We have since sold everything and this year I did them with TurboTax and really the features.  Now we are thinking of purchasing another small rental and would like to know how TurboTax is with rentals.  Is it easy and pretty much self-explanatory?  Do you like to use it for this or do you have an accountant do it?  Thanks in advance. 
The properties not changed, any more ideas?
I own several rental properties, buy houses and flip them and
own several nationally-known chain restaurants.

Much more productive than pointing fingers at the government and blaming them for any poor choices on my part, most of which are fixable if you stop complaining and get off your butt!
the properties stats still do not count headers.
Do a test to prove it. Type one word in the document and one word in the header and you will only see a count for the word in the body of the document.
Make sure that the Properties haven't been changed.

Open the document that you want to print, choose Print from the File menu and then select Properties. Click on the Layout tab and make sure that you're printing one page per sheet.

If you change the color in the properties/appearance, it does NOT
transfer to another computer. You are only changing your Windows settings. If you use one of the stationery themes within Word, that does transfer.
problem with display properties screen sm

I am trying to change some settings for my display.  When I go into the display properties screen/appearance there are three boxes that are "locked" and I can't get rid of them. 

The top one says "message box", the one behind that says "active window" and the third one behind that says "inactive window".  They are like error boxes stacked on top of each other.  It won't let me "X" them out or anything.  Its like they are locked, so  I can't change change the appearance of my monitor.  I have rebooted and done everything I know to do and can't get rid of these boxes.  The other options tabs for my display work fine though.

Meditech is an operating system and Fusion is voice for a dictation system
take a report you get the gross pay for and do a file/properties/statistics
get the total character count with spaces and divide by 65 I think 6.5 gross line will put a little over 8 cents per 65 character line with spaces.
Nobody (well hardly anybody) gives raises. If the work is easy, you know your account, you might not find greener pastures.

You could take on a part-time account instead of just quitting the one you have, sometimes that switch is a wrong move, anything to break the fall.

Also, MP Count is a free software for line counting and invoicing. Its on the MedPen website.
so, with 5 income properties, how did you come to have only 4000 for a cushion? What happends to y
If you are Christians I'd think you would know about steweardship, living within your means, being prideful. I find it hard to believe someone with income property didn't know what closing costs would be..you get paperwork early on that idicates approximate costs..they are usually fairly accurate, and never 2000 off. Good luck and keep us posted.
you need to change your properties of those file types to open with ES and not media player. sm
go to your folders by start, explore. find where you saved those files to. once you find a file, right click on it and click on properties. under the general tab, look down 3 lines to where it says open with and i bet it says media player. click change, find the express scribe program. make sure you check that box under there that says always use this program to open this type of file. then you can either right click again, click open with, select express scribe and it will automatically load in ES or you can hit the load button on ES, find where the file is saved, select and it loads it. if this doesn't work, email me.
It's the way our system is set up..
We can search to see what work is out there, and we can also search by author and see what work each author has, and even look at completed reports, which is nice when you're stuck. I love my platform.
everyone on DQS (DEP) system
not all accounts are on it yet, but most are
Can you say what system it was? nm
I think it is what system you are using,
that is why I asked you to tell me more. I use eScription and 1 can believe or not but I am amazed at how the ESLs are picked up better than the English. You are using Dictaphone- I have read other posts who are on different VR system and they are not satisfied. I have loads of ESLs on my account but am happy VR is picking up instead of my having to listen to them all and trying to muddle through.
Your system allows this?
The system I work on does not allow me to 'pick' my work. I have a pool of work and it loads into my computer 3 records at a time. I have to take what I get and do what I get. Your system allows you to choose what dictations you want to do? In my opinion, that is not fair to anyone. It should be what pops up gets done by whoever reaches it first.

I would say one last thing to my boss about it, if I were you. I would just tell her that you can sit there and watch what is happening, that this one person is taking the gravy jobs, and for your boss to sit and observe it herself and do something about it. I don't see why any person feels they are better than another, to get an easy income while others struggle. I sure hope it is resolved soon for you.
For every system set up, there is a way around it..
our system recently changed to allow only ONE job to be seen and worked on at a time, which they thought would stop the cherry picking, but it has not. There is a web site where we can still view what is coming next and down the line. The cherry pickers just wait, PERHAPs doing a little job here and there, and then as soon as a very large one comes up, snap. it is gone! I hate this way of things. I certainly wish that all accounts were "assigned" accounts. Much more fair to all transcriptionists. but that is just my opinion!!!
EMR System
I just got back from a meeting at my employer's office. They've been implementing EMR and expect most of it to be up and running by March. They haven't come right out and told us (the other transcriptionis), but we may be without a job, although they haven't really said too much. Supposedly they may still need us because there are some doctors that are set in their ways and won't use it.
What system do you use? NM
The problem is with our system.
As a Caucasion I do feel shame for what my ancestors have done to people of other races, especially to Native Americans.  However, I cannot go back in time and fix that.  The problem now is not that people want to come here, the problem is the gravy train our government allows outsiders that do come here.  This is in no way good for the citizens of this country, no matter their original nationality.  If I wanted to become a citizen of another country, the first thing I would expect to have to do is to learn the language.  The powers that be have had a global economy as part of the agenda, and now we have it.  This did not start with the current administration.  I do not know if there is anything that can be done to help the situation at this point.  The powers that be have what they want.  If you are big business, then you can trade with anyone in any country who has the money.  If this is what they wanted, at least they could level the playing field so that we could financially compete with those who are being given a free ride.
Then she'd get back on the system with
This is so-and-so, and I got disconnected AGAIN.
Call-in system
I have an internet based digital call in system with 4 ports.  It is very simple to use. The doctor calls in and then the work is on the server, you load it with Express Scribe and do your work........If you want another transcriptionist to get work, then you just put in their e-mail address along with your doctor's key and it will automatically forward to the transcriptionist, while you still have a copy of the voice file to be able to double check the work.   I bought mine through RT King.
abcdz system
Could you please explain?
Yep, but its the Dictaphone system...
My hospital rad account decided to "upgrade" their system which supposedly would take half an hour - its now 6 hours and counting - and the docs haven't been able to dictate since noon - boy R we in for a backlog tomorrow!
Can't you log onto MQ's system and find that out?
I don't know about anyone else, but I would never stay with a company that didn't have enough work to keep me busy.
To sm, don't do it! Someone will call you and ask why you are off the system!
Where can I get this vacuum system? NM
DOS based system
Has anyone ever worked for a company that is DOS based? I started a new job today, and their system is in DOS. To me it is really old-school, but I guess I will just have to learn.
Can you use the DOS system with Windows XP?nm
You can't explain it. Our system we have
set up, like I said before, does not help the people who really need it half the time. The people who can afford to build on the beach and build mansions at that, should have to rebuild themselves.

My point though is that not everyone can get out. Not everyone has that opportunity. I got so tired of hearing about it was the people's fault in New Orleans because they should have left. What do people not understand about not being able to leave if you have no vehicle? It is their local government's fault for not using the buses they had on hand.
Cerner is a pie system for MTs...(sm)
A hospital I used to work for went to Cerner about a year before I left.  It was very nice for the MTs compared to the dinosaur system we had before it.  The front office and billing I cannot say were so happy about it..and expect alot of headaches throughout your department until they get used to it.  But as far as the MT side of it..it was great.  LOVED the lil "sticky notes" you could enter on a document to bring something to the rad's attention before they could sign it off. 
About system restore, sorry about that
Our problem is...system will
Therefore, we are not able to edit anything because we can't get in.
DocQScribe system help

Anyone use ShortHand and docuscribe together?  With my old company i was using Word and shorthand.  I had a macro set up to take me from blank to blank.  I am lost on this new system.  Any ideas on how to set this up?  Thanks in advance!


Do you use a digital system
How does it work on the clients end and on your end. How much did it cost?
Dictatphone System
I have an Enterprise Express that I would like to sell!  If interested, please email me!
...that would be 'great' system! :) nm
It depends on how the system is set up...sm
I have worked on several different Meditech systems.  They are all different. Margins are different.  How the lines and/or characters are counted are different.  One system counts gross lines, one system counts all lines blank lines included, one system counts just characters.  Some count the headers, some don't.  I currently work on two systems and when I copied and put into word, one system was right on and the other had a descrepancy I though might be the header.
lanier system sm

Please help. Our Transcriptionist left abruptly, and we are needing to acess the files to pull a medical report. We have the job in que, but we are not able to get any further. Can someone walk us through getting this thing typed.

HELP!!! Just bought new system

any ideas?

DocShuttle System
How user friendly in the DocShuttle System?  Any info. would be appreciated.  How would you compare DocShuttle to DocQScribe or Webcorrect??
don't you also need the call in system with this? nm
Get yourself a system...most important..
With Autocorrect, you have to remember everything!  So I had to come up with a system that I would remember them.  I use the letter *J* for anything that ends in *tion* or *sion,* the letter *Z* for endings with *ize* or *ization*, *x* for words that start with prefix of *ex*, for capitalizing abbreviations, such as HPI that you want to capitalize in a sentence, would be *xhpi.*  I use *U* as in uhpi to bring up History of Physical Illness when needed in a sentence, as *HPI* will come up all caps for headings.  I also have a system that I will use the first two letters of two words if I have already used the first letters of two words, such as *cp* for chest pain, *chpr* for chemistry profile.  If those first two letters are used for something, I go to the first three letters of the first word and the first two letters of the second word.  Also will use maybe the first four or five letters of a word.  Also, have phrases, such as *sdnh* for she does not have, *shnos* for she has not seen, and just a lot of those types of things. Saves a lot of time.  Also have, of course, what the docs constantly say, their little phrases they use all of the time.  However, I do forget I have some of these things in there, and have to keep refreshing myself as with about 5000 abbreviations, it gets wicked!!  But it really helps to have a system that helps you to remember what you have in there. 
New system blues
We recently had a computer upgrade at the hospital where I work and we are having multiple issues.  We are using Word 2003 in conjunction with Dictaphone Enterprise Express.  First, does anyone know how to load the medical dictionary into the spell checker so that it pulls words from that dictionary?  The spell check is stopping on almost every medical word and driving us all crazy!  Secondly, the command CTRL+shift+spacebar is not keeping words together like it used to on our old system.  Anybody have any clues as to why?  Also, if you create a macro it will work fine until you sign off of word client, and when you sign back on, its gone.  Any help would be appreciated...it has been a long 2 weeks!  TIA.
I looked into that, but I need a system that will...
automatically route work to my MTs.

Thank you for the suggestion though!
I wonder if you can use System Restore
to recover that document. That worked for me once.
DVI system question

Does anyone know where I can get a manual for my DVI system type LFH 4020/80D?  I cannot find mine and I am not sure where to get a replacement.  I need to program it for a second clinic and am not sure how.



call-in system
How many clients do you have? IOW, how many doctors would be calling in at any given time? If you just need a one-line call-in unit, Philips makes a decent one that is relatively inexpensive, as call-in systems go. Only one doc can call in at a time, though. If you need something bigger than that, maybe look at Straight Talk. Sometimes you can even find those on Ebay
Call In System
Thank you! It will be approx 8 physical therapists calling in at one time. Thank you for your input.
