Ronald Reagan circa 1985 proclaiming MT week, and in the mail a plastic container with the company name on, it with about 4 oz of Hershey's kisses and tootsie rolls. Other years, large mug with company logo, and a bag of peanuts. Appropriate.

The are better at Xmas. Usually a small gift certificate to use online. Last you QuickLook (which messes up my computer) because originally it came a software with the computer, but they were to cheap to keep adding it on.

Presidential Proclamation for MT Week
I want to wish everyone a Happy MT Week!  Below I've included the text of the presidential proclamation by Ronald Reagan designating the week of May 20th as MT week (here's a link to that text also - http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=38668).  Nothing like a presidental pat on the back to give you the warm fuzzies!

Happy transcribing :-)

Proclamation 5345—National Medical Transcriptionist Week, 1985
May 21st, 1985

Ronald Reagan
1985: Book I

By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation

Record-keeping is a vital function in our society, and one of the most important records for every American is the medical record. That record, including reports prepared and edited by a medical transcriptionist from physician dictation, is the permanent history of a patient's medical care.

A century ago, physicians knew many of their patients from birth, knew all their ailments, and provided all their medical care. Today, with medical specialization and greater mobility among people, many skilled physicians may treat the average American during a lifetime. Using transcribed medical reports, each physician can easily and quickly review a patient's medical history even if the physician has never seen that patient before. Because of the work done by trained medical transcriptionists, patients can be assured that the history of their medical care is portrayed accurately and legibly. Medical transcriptionists have therefore become a vital link between the physician and the patient.

It is appropriate for our Nation to recognize the contributions of medical transcriptionists. We should encourage hospitals, allied health education programs, and community colleges to provide appropriate courses of instruction recognizing the high standards that must be met by medical transcriptionists and the vital function they perform.

In recognition of the need for medical transcriptionists in today's society, the Congress, by Public Law 98-609, has designated the week beginning May 20, 1985, as "National Medical Transcriptionist Week" and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of this event.

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby designate the week of May 20 through May 26, 1985, as National Medical Transcriptionist Week, and I urge all Americans to participate in appropriate ceremonies in observance of this event.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-five, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and ninth.

That is "web site" in post above. Also, Auto Copy add-on for Firefox will automatically copy
Auto Copy add-on for Firefox AUTOMATICALLY copies what you select (highlight) on a web site to the clipboard.

Then you can paste it in a document.

It just saves the step of right clicking and then clicking on "copy" to put something on the clipboard. Just select it, and it is on the clipboard.

It only works only on web sites-- only copies stuff you select on web sites, i.e. not in other documents.
Print a copy of the form on your printer, fill it out, copy and send it to your computer via fax may
Just a guess. Or print it, fill it out and fax it to her.
How do you copy your SH file to text - do you copy each dictionary separately? nm
I do not copy to text. I copy the spf sm
file to a disk and save the whole thing there, update it occasionally.
I have a copy
I have a AAMT BOS 2nd edition with CD. It is in good condition and has two highlighted passages. Email me if interested.
If you do need a copy of XP Pro...
Try Newegg. You can purchase software that system builders would buy. It's the same thing you'd find at any major store, without the pretty box. I just bought XP home edition for about $90. It came in a bubble envelope with a manual and all the appropriate documentation and license key. I looked quickly on Newegg and saw XP Pro for $139. You can also ask for XP Pro to be installed on your new laptop from the company you are buying it from.
any way I can get a copy of it
I would love to have a copy of that.....got some friends who are newbies and I would also like to refresh my memory!
I'd like a copy too please....
if you wouldn't mind emailing me one.  Grazi!!!
Can't help copy, BUT
Will you own all the entries you put on the hospital's server? Make sure you can copy your dictionary each day or two and take it home with you. Heavy use of Expanders is so new that there aren't a lot of horror stories being told yet by people whose incomes dropped drastically when they lost their jobs because with them they also lost the personalized dictionaries they spent years developing. But they will be.
Need to get a copy of BOS - 2 or 3,
depending on what your company/client uses. In that there is a list of dangerous abbreviations that are not to be used.
I think you actually have to have a copy,
but you can check with the IRS to be absolutely sure.
Get a copy of the check.
You can usually do it free now with online banking.  Check the legal amount, which is the longhand written out line, to see if it's correct.  If it is correct, send a copy to your auto payment company and have them fix it through their bank.  Sometimes the MICR line can be encoded wrong if someone mistypes or transposes when encoding.  Call your bank and tell them to make an adjustment for the incorrect amount.  However, if you filled the check out wrong, yes, you need to send another check for the $61.00.  If they try to put late charges on, talk to a manager and have the fees waived.
Does anyone know how or if I can get my copy of spellex....sm

off of my old computer? I was able to get a free copy when I went to the VLC about two years ago. I never bought any of the updates...just kept using the one I had downloaded for free. I have since changed to a new computer, but cant seem to get that copy off of my old computer. I was never given a disk, just info to download it. I have a couple of small accouts that I am working on, but am not really in position to buy a whole new program, especially after I just dropped major money on an Windows XP!! Any help is greatly appreciated!! Do you think it is possible the VLC would "replace" it?

can you copy and paste?

If not, check this site out!!!


Wow - it is interesting. You know, there is actually an organization called The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in charge of standardizing all this stuff up-and-coming.

Did you read the part about "MT changing more in the next few years than it has in the last 100"

This is it, right at this site.

It is documentation that the doctor or nurse, or healthcare provider carries and enters at the time of service...

It even automatically codes for billing, etc.

Rather than 'free text' of a doctor dictating, it is standardized text where the person enters the info...

so much to it, and it is exciting, just wished we fit in somewhere...
copy & paste
long, drawn out process which will take tons of MW space, but it can be done.
When purchasing a used copy...sm

Be sure to have the person that sold it to you notify Textware Solutions that they are no longer using it and that you are now the license owner. This will allow you to take advantage of all the benefits of being the license owner such as discounted upgrades, free tech support, etc.


Can I copy IT onto a CD or disk?

I have company issued computer with IT.  I would like to know if I could move IT to a CD or disk so that I can put it on my personal computer.  I have greatly expanded the glossary to cover my area of expertise over the last one year and do not want to lose this.  In fact, I think I would break down and cry if I did.  Plus, am thinking of taking on a PT job and would like to utilize this IT on my other computer.

Thank you.

I'd also appreciate a copy, if you'd be so kind.
Just copy the cd to your C drive
You cd software should have a copy mode. I copied mine from my CD to my C: drive. I put an icon for it down in my quick launch and it works great. I have icons for my Stedman's electronic dictionaries on the quick launch as well. Hope this helps.
You can just copy and paste.
Yes it will conform.  Also Word allows you to use your own spellcheck.  May be a bit cumbersome at first, but should work better than typing directly in Meditech.  It lags a lot. 
Should be able to copy it into any program -- nm
can someone tell me how to copy pcshorthand
No need to yell... :) ... and no, according to the BOS II. Got a copy
copy and paste
The only way I know is to copy and paste.
You can copy all folders by
Right-clicking the Instant Text folder located in C: and selecting Send To whatever drive your flash drive is. The installer is not included in the main IT folder, just your glossaries and backup and stuff. You'd have to install IT on the other computer and then load the folders from your flash drive to the IT folder on the computer. I have my IT backed up with my flash drive but still need the CD to put IT on my home computer.
I just snagged a copy LOL
and I don't give a d____.

And why would you give a d___ if people are offended? LOL it's a scream.
Buy new and copy your favorites.
Just buy a new computer and copy your favorites to it. It's very easy to do. If you cannot copy the file the favorites are in to a disk and transfer them that way, write down the URLs and re-enter them by hand on your new machine.

It is unlikely that anyone will allow you to buy the company machine. That, and their requirement that you not engage in personal entertainment or business with it, is not meant to treat you like a child or to make your life difficult.

This is an effort to comply with computer security requirements mandated by HIPAA. As a part of their business partner agreements, the company has to uphold the same privacy and security standards as the client. That will include restricting access to patient information contained on hard drives, as well as ensuring that information in computers is not affected by malware that can be picked up from visiting unauthorized sites on the net or personal email.

If this bothers you, imagine how much more it will bother you for transcription to cease being outsourced,which looks to be the security solution some large interests are looking at.

copy that! (to my desktop) thank you! NM
Would you please share how you copy---sm

There is a way to copy Autotext and - sm

You can copy the PRD from windows 98 to a disk and
transfer it to XP. It does not make any difference what windows platform you use because PRD is DOS program and does not need the installation program, just copy to your hard drive.

However, there are a few programming considerations you need in order to get it to work on XP, and the best instructions for this are at a web site at columbia university. I will put that link in an addendum here so you can get the help you really need.

How to copy files back
Hey!  I use an FTP server and Express Scribe.  I know how to get the files to my hard drive from the FTP server.  But copying them back is another story.  I was told to copy (as in highlight and hit Ctrl-C) then put my cursor on top of the folder I need them into and hit Ctrl-V.  It does not owrk for me.  So I have to email them in.  Is that how you copy them into the server?  I think, perhaps, I was not instructed properly?  Or, perhaps, the server is not set to allow me to do that? 
Can you copy the patient names in

the My Documents program in Windows XP?  I would love to be able to print out the list to give to the doctors so that they have it to correlate with the reports I give them.  I have no idea how to do this, or even if it is possible.   

Thank you.


Yes. Hit apply and either copy and paste, or
attach resume; however, some companies will not allow attachments.
A cover letter is always a good idea; just keep it short and to the point.

Happy Job Hunting.
