Have a look at this link, multiple doc finder sites listed in there
You might find one of those doc finders useful.

Good grief...multiple personality disorder???

Even with multiple GOOD dictators, I still find it hard - sm
to do '8 hours' worth of transcription in less than 11-12 hours, mainly due to the lack of ability to make templates, as each doc does his H&P entirely differently. Also they want extraordinary accuracy, grammar clean-up, and proofreading done on each report. So a longish H&P can sometimes take an hour.

anybody have any good PT sites/books??
I do a lot of PT reports and some of the exercises dictated are not very clear and spelling is unknown, and having a tough time finding reference material on the web.  I have the Dorland's Orthopedics book and that helps sometimes, but wondered if there were other things out there that other people use?? 
Does anyone have any good urology sites?

anybody have good web sites for radiation/oncology

Need names of good, secure, FTP sites - sm

that are easy to use and access.  Have a doctor's office that will be sending me digital voice files in the next couple of weeks and need to switch them over easily to a new "system".  I prefer FTP though since I only have dial-up and I am used to using it with another job. Any preferences out there? Thanks.

Any good sites for plastic surgery? sm
Been doing reports for breast augmentation, mastopexy, blepharoplasty, Z-plasty, etc. Any web sites that may have terminology or sample reports other than MT Desk. Their site is good, but need more sample reports or terminology.
Does anyone know of any good reference sites for PT notes?

Does anyone have any good doctor locator sites (sm)
I have AMA DoctorFinder and used to have DR411 but now they want $1699 to have a complete list.  I need more sites to look up physicians  If you have any and wouldn't mind sharing them, I for one would greatly appreciate it.  TIA

Anybody know of any good sites for surgical term reference? nm
Need good organisms and infectious disease books/sites (sm)
I have Stedman's Organisms & Infectious Diseases, but it's out of date (2002) and an updated company has not been published. Does anyone recommend any books and/or web sites that can give me quick info including on meds for specific IDs? e.g., Stedman's lists HIV/AIDS medications alphabetically in the appendix.

Free Ortho sites & ABCZ sites

Every orthopedic test imaginable.



This site has a free ABCZ Expander system.



This site has free software.....There is Stedmans Ortho Word Book program on there amount other great software. 



Good luck

Good drug book vs. internet drug sites
I need to buy a new drug book.  At a prior job, about a year ago, one of the supervisors told me she used the internet exclusively.  What's the consensus and if you prefer the internet, which site or sites do you like.  Thanks in advance.
Why do you take MULTIPLE
Other MTs with multiple sclerosis


I am wondering if there are other MTs out there with multiple sclerosis and how they are doing dealing with a chronic illness and working in the MT field.  Also, are you working full-time, part-time, IC?  I have only one year experience but am considering returning to the field. 





The key to multiple accounts sm
Most people are intimidated by multiple accounts but think about it, an H&P is an H&P, an OP is an OP and an ESL is an ESL, doesn't matter where it comes from.  You CAN program account specs in your mind for those you get regularly so that the specs come right up along with the dictation.  The exception would be an account that you get maybe once in a blue moon and then anyone would probably have to give their memory a little boost.  With the way work is assigned these days, it is an absolute necessity that anyone who wants to make any money needs to be able to switch from one account to another without missing a beat and it CAN be done.
Does anybody else out there take multiple antidepressants?nm
Any other MTs with multiple sclerosis?

Wondered if there were any other MTs out there with multiple sclerosis.  I am not presently working but considering going back to MT.  Before tried to work for a company that wanted set hours and with the fatigue associated with my MS that was very difficult. 

Thank You.

isn't that the deal with multiple...sm
ports for extra printers, etc., and you can switch back and forth from one to the other??  I had several for multiple printers on all computers years ago.  I think that's what they were called.  I can elaborate if on the right track here, if you want.
even with her multiple personalities
you can just tell it is her. She is pretty pathetic. Makes you almost feel sorry for her........NAW!!! She has stepped on too many toes around here to be getting any sympathy.
multiple companies
you mean companies, not accounts, right? I work part time for one, one full day on Monday, a few hours most other mornings and sometimes on Sunday evenings. I work full time for another Tuesday-Saturday afternoon-midnight. Working out for me. I need the extra money.
Multiple Accounts
For those who work for transcription companies, how many different accounts (facilities) do you transcribe?
multiple accounts
So far, 7 but not all dictate heavily or daily. 
multiple jobs
I actually have three... All of them are independent contractor positions, one is strictly weekends and overflow.. One i work when there is no work for the other two, and one is full time IC
Can be one specialty or multiple ......
This is not true if you have multiple cards. sm
While it's true you need to have lines of credit to show history, NO ONE will tell you to keep open many accounts, because many open accounts represents POTENTIAL debt.
I think OP meant one IC job with multiple clients...
If you are working as an IC at more than one place, you only have one job as an IC but you have more than one client. Tis true.

Same here. Very low on work with multiple accts. nm
multiple personalities (or names)
Yes, it seems she likes to change her name to make it seem like everyone is ganging up on you.......No, you are not losing it, but I sure wish she'd get lost. If we could all just not read or respond to any of her posts, maybe the she'll find it is no longer fun. That is what I try to teach my son. When someone tries to pick on you they are looking for a reaction. If they get it, it intensifies. If they don't, they lose interest. Hard I know, but maybe we can try?
Wow - I think she's wrong. It is an impression whether there are multiple
I didn't find it in my BOS-2E...I don't think you will.

Sounds like you need to get another 1-2 QA opinions and then to the QA manager.
Shorthand on multiple computers
If I buy a copy of Shorthand, how many computers can I put it on?
working for multiple companies
I was wondering if any of you work for multiple accounts, and if so how you manage your time between the two of them.  I have been trying to work on one during the day, and one at night, but its not working very well for me at this point.
I am working for multiple companies
I was working 1 job full time split shift afternoon and back in the evening to 1 a.m. The second job I work around it, either in the morning or third shift. They are pretty flexible.
But now I am in a similar situation. I just took one job split afternoon and overnigt and the other job early afternoon split to evening. I sleep during the mornings and after dinner time when my husband watch the kids. I will manage to get 2 full days off when I go to 2 F/T instead of 1 set and 1 flexible job. It should be interesting. I wish you luck. For me, at least the bill collectors are happy now.
Multiple accounts/templates
I now use InstantText. You can give each account and each doctor in that account their own glossary. You can use includes too for drugs and surgical, for instance. In a glossary you can either "call in" a template or you can put it in there and save the formatting, depends on how you want to do it. The template can include margins, tabs, letterhead, headers, footers, pagination, or whatever you want. Right now I only do about 7 different ones, so I just lumped them up in one (using includes) because I have done them so long that I now remember what is in there.

If you use WordPerfect (5.2 or a newer one, but I like 5.2) it is a snap. You just use PRD (which utilizes function keys) and you store your documents and templates as usual and then you can "open them up" on the fly. I love this. You just put in the path to that document or template once and it is there forever or until you delete it or change it. With PRD you can have multiple glossaries too if your computer can hold them. The key for me with both Expanders was to be consistent with the way I save things. For instance, all the addresses used for an account (which can be many) I store under ad. So, if I want Dr. Harold Smith I type in adsmith and down underneath all the smiths come up and I choose the one I want to use and their I have it - I do two for each -one in standard form and the other like this: SMITH, HAROLD MD, 1111 FIRST AVENUE, ANYPLACE, ANYSTATE 11111. The other in the form for letters and envelopes. I have a drugs glossary, a surgical equipment glossary, and one for each specialty, sometimes a separate one for a specific doctor. I then use the "include" feature and group them up or mostly I now just use them altogether and I think that glossary (my everyday glossary) has about 8,200 entries or something like that. InstantText is wonderful. Try it if you haven't or, if you have, try to learn more of its features.
I've had multiple platforms.

Once you land the 2nd job, the tech person should be able to help. 

Having multiple windows open

I mostly use online resources (rather than books) but find that it takes time to (alt+tab) through all the windows when I have a lot of open. ... When I have a lot open, I often accidentally tab right past the one I want (as I am trying to hurry) and go round and round a couple times.

Does anyone know of any other way to utilize the Internet in a more efficient way while working? 

Also, I often end up with my sound freezing, etc. which I think is because I don't have enough RAM for everything I am trying to do.  Any info on this?

Thanks so much!! 

Question regarding multiple accounts

I work for an MTSO and have multiple accounts with endless dictators.  One of the most frustrating things is the account specifics and all the changes that continually come up. 

We have online manuals, but on top of that we get tons of emails with changes for this or that account.  It is almost impossible to keep it all straight.  I will go through spells where I don't get one of two of the accounts for a few weeks, and then when I do I can't remember things or some of the new changes are not ingrained in my head yet.  Even with email search, it is so time consuming to try to find the information while I am working.  Not good for the line count!

Do many of you have this issue too?  How do you handle it?  It drives me totally crazy!!    

question regarding multiple accounts
I know exactly what you mean.  I have multiple accounts, but one account specifically constantly changes things.  My line count drops lower every day trying to keep and then, of course, QA has to jump in with their comments. I worked at one business where each client had to use the same account specifics.  Alot easier!!!  It is very frustrating, but the ones who are making the money from us do not seem to care
working multiple companies
For those you who work a full-time job plus a part-time job for a different company, are you using one computer for both?  I thought maybe I should buy a second computer???

How do you download multiple attachments to emails?

I just started with a company who sends their voice files via attachments to an email.  Is their an email (yahoo, aim, aol, msn.....) that will allow you to download all attachments at once instead of 1 at a time? Thanks Karen

Me, too, except for those multiple toe jobs where they ALL get broken & reset! Ugh..nm
Yes, been through the ovarian cystectomy multiple times. sm
Finally had a hysterectomy last year. If you are having laparoscopy, you will feel good the next day; however, I must tell you, air will get trapped in your diaphragm and you may experience excruciating pain between your shoulder blades for about a day. That has happened to me each time with laparoscopy. The CO2 gets trapped and eventually works its way out. That pain was worse than the surgery itself.

Good luck!
