This is what I use daily


This site lets you type in three or more letters of the drug, and it pulls up everything with those letters.  It's great for when you only hear part of the drug.


Daily work is exactly what the word DAILY means --> work that comes in on a daily basis.  No days pass by without an empty queue.

I must be with the wrong companies then.

typo/ should have said definitely. Thanks

Sorry for the typo and...
I'm also going to post this on the company board in case this is the wrong board for this. Thanks.

Just noticed typo - should've proofed before sending.  Sorry for the incorrect spelling of through.
It was a typo
My father-in-law signed my husband up for this and I thought I would give it a shot to see if we could make some extra money. I really am a medical transcriptionist. I work for a company out of Brentwood, TN, but I get to work from home using ChartMatrix and VoiceWave.
It's a typo - get over it! nm
Sorry about that typo!

I meant to say [resent] instead of recent. I hate typos, even in postings---must be the MT in my blood!
Your VPN, no you. typo! nm
Sorry, typo, but I'm not ..
even sure it is the right drug without the context.
sorry for the typo


Sorry---meant 500/wk!
their typo
That is they are here not AR. sorry typo nm.
Sorry for typo. sm
Sorry for typo. Yes, you are right. It's such a small amount, but the principle of the matter as well as her arrogant disposition prompted me to do it. Her lawyer is taking it to trial. We could have settled this thing, but maybe her lawyer is milking her and stroking her pride. Anyway, someone is going to get paid, even if it is not me.
Was told I could NOT take a vacation....or, not one that included the entire weekend - lol!
cataract and not enough coffee. :)
By chance is this MT Daily?
Not everyone comes to this board daily!
Are we not allowed to ask questions if they've been asked before? I understand this is the main board but people complain on the company board too if you ask about a company already posted about. Maybe those people can just skip over the posts and keep going, onto another message board preferably! Sheesh.
How many authors do you have daily?

I'm with a small MTSO and for quite a while have been on an account with about 10 doctors, mostly ESL.  I was very comfortable with them.  I have been trained on three accounts, one with maybe 6 and then another very large account, but they kept me primarily on this account.

Recently I was switched to one of the other accounts - no ESL, but this last pay period I had 38 different authors!!  Am having a hard time getting comfortable, and there's other problems , but for this post I just was hoping to find out, on average how many authors are others doing?

Maybe I was really lucky before with just 10 docs - ?

Usually 2 hours daily.
Today I clocked 2 hours 33 minutes and I can honesly say I'm beat!  Almost solid H&Ps and D/C summaries too...so finger-saving normals.  Blech!
I would still flag it - he said twice daily not

Daily digest
What's the daily digest?  I had not heard of that.  How do we sign up for it?
I add things daily. sm
I have been an MT and had an Expander for nine years, and i still add things on a daily basis. Not only cos I still run into new stuff daily, but also because your mind thinks of more and more complex things to put in there as you go.

Back when I started, all I thought about was long words and two-word phrases, maybe some longer phrases. I was happy with that. But then as i went typing happily along, I discovered I could do much more -- put entire sentences in, put formatting in, create entire pick lists, call up macros, call up websites, call up templates, the list goes on and on.

How do I remember them? Well, first I realize it's missing by actually typing in the short I think would make sense if it was in there. If it's not there, I put it in. Then maybe the next time I run into that phrase, I think, "hmm, have I entered this before?" and i try out the short that would make the most sense to me (at that time of course, which could be completely different than the first time!) And if it's there, yeah! I just saved myself some keystrokes!

I also just switched to IT and about once a month I run an enrichment on my doctors to get the most out of what they say.
what is daily work?
If it's never running out, being able to work the hours you want to work and still making a decent paycheck, then yes I have daily work.
"It" not I. sorry for the typo. nm
it was a typo - LOOKOUT.....NM

yes, but there are not just typo errors. sm
A wrong word, i.e., peroneal instead of perineal, and the list goes on ad infinitum, or a sentence ending in the wrong place.  There are any number of things a spellchecker will not catch. I proof totally when I transcribe. Having worked in QA for a long long time, even very very good MTs make some pretty bad mistakes from time to time. 
sorry for typo, should be "looking bad" (sm)
Sorry for the typo...should have been "looking bad". I just woke up and am checking my email, etc. I worked 2nd/3rd last night. I know it is no excuse for a typo, but my brain is not in "work mode" just yet.......

[[[[[[Seems like I've heard that you have to let it get a certain length before you wax? Waxing seems like it would be great, but if I had to wait even 1 day with it looking back, or heaven forbid, dayssss, no way. Is that true, or can you just do it as soon as you see a sign of more growth? Seriously, I've always wondered about this....not OP, but this post caught my eye too.]]]]]]

Please, one typo is NOT the problem..
typo--that should be WEBSITE

long day

I would count as a typo
especially if I felt the MT knew her stuff.... this kind of thing happens - QA supposedly was an MT themselves in a previous life- do you think this never happened to them? I might not even count it depending on the MT and my mood! :)
Please disregard the typo . . .
I see that I have mixed the words. It just makes me mad to see QA with "experience" pick on those trying to make it. Seems like you tend to forget how it was in your beginning years.
oops -- typo
Fingers are not working today. Sorry. :(
My blooper typo-of-the-day! sm

Doctor dictates:  "Extremities are warm and well perfused."

What I almost typed:  "Extremities are warm and well PERFUMED." 

    Time for a break

Ooops! Typo.
I did type it wrong on my original post.  It is Ctrl+Insert+Insert that I use.  I am out of it today...typical Monday blahs.   Thanks! 
I repeat - and YOU have never had a typo?
Landlord (sorry about typo) nm
of all the places to put a typo!
I made a typo - sorry! nm
This wasn't just one typo, there were several.
Excuse the typo
I mean't go not bo in earlier post.
Sorry about the typo - forgive me
Sorry for the typo . . .
wow..got me on a typo...see!!..you are worth
Please excuse the typo...
Should read... if I can swing the 8 cpl that was offered to me.
You probably had a typo in several of your passwords
when you typed it.
Why did it go through one time? That's when you typed it right.
Maybe they blocked you, were your emails 'nasty'?

Thanks! I'm assuming that was a typo, you
meant *hook up to both MONITORS* I hope....

But thanks for giving me a starting point....I'm gonna ask about that switch the Best Buy near my house...

Thanks again!
Do you currently post on MT Daily or read it?

I was thinking about paying the $48 but then I thought there are only limited amount of people who will pay so probably not as good as MTStars.  It was fun though before they started charging and if they only charged half as much they would draw more people.  $48 is way high when other boards are free.

Just some daily walking would probably shake it for you, too. nm
? lidopine bis-a-late 10 mg daily
Anyone heard of this.  I posted on word board but got no help.  Need STAT.
