About EditScript MT

EditScript MT™ is used by MTs to edit and transcribe dictations. EditScript MT is fully integrated with Microsoft Word and takes advantage of familiar word processing features. eScription has also added other shortcuts to address the specific needs of MTs as they transcribe and/or edit documents. In addition to this powerful editing mode, EditScript MT features an MT Review mode that allows staff to review and score completed reports, a Reviewed Dictation Retrieval (RDR) mode that allows users to see scored dictations, and a Pending List Management (PLM) mode that allows staff members to monitor
and resolve documents that are currently pending. Enabling Enhanced MT Review Features Version 10 introduces an enhanced MT Review process that includes the ability to do a retrospective review of the latest unpended document, to let reviewers review the work of other reviewers, and to revise or correct already assigned scores in Reviewed Dictation

Retrieval (RDR) mode. MTs with MT Review privileges can also review and grade others while in Pending List Management (PLM) mode. See descriptions below for more details. To enable these new features, EMon administrators select Enhanced MT Review Features in EMon’s Application Features dialog.

Note: EditScript MT v10 uses the term “MT Review” in place of “QA Review”.

Support for Retrospective Review
of Both Original and Current Versions of Documents
EditScript MT v10 supports retrospective MT review of the original and current versions of
unpended documents; documents must be in an unsigned, partially signed, or signed state.
If Enhanced MT Review Features is enabled, when users log into EditScript MT and are
prompted to select a work queue mode, the following two new options appear: “MT Review
of Original Documents” and “MT Review of Current Documents”. These options replace the
“QA Review” option from v9.
Providing Grading Feedback While in PLM Mode
When EMon administrators enable Enhanced MT Review Features, users with MT Review
privileges can review and grade other MTs while resolving pended documents in PLM mode.
This is called pre-release MT Review. In previous versions of EditScript MT, it was necessary
to resolve problems in PLM mode, log out, and then enter QA Review mode; in v10, users
with MT Review privileges can provide grading feedback without leaving PLM mode.
Filtering Reviewed Documents By Reviewer While in RDR Mode
When viewing the work queue in RDR mode, administrators can use the new Reviewer
drop-down list to see documents that were reviewed by a particular transcriptionist or by all
The Reviewer drop-down list contains the names of all transcriptionists who are able to
review documents. Administrators can select one specific name or select “All” to see
documents reviewed by all transcriptionists.
Users must belong to a security group with the Use EditScript to see reviewed
documents of other transcriptionists permission to access this filter.

Viewing Pending Reasons in RDR Mode
In v10, reviewers can do an MT Review of a document while working in Pending List
Management mode (called pre-release MT Review). As a result, such documents may also
include pending reasons. These pending reasons will be displayed in the Pending Reason
grid when viewing a downloaded document in RDR mode. Viewing them may provide users
with contextual information relevant to the grades given when the document was reviewed.
Reviewing a Grading Mistake While in RDR Mode
Review staff can now correct any grading mistakes that a reviewing transcriptionist might
have made while reviewing a document. To revise scores, a user must belong to a security
group with the Use EditScript to see reviewed documents for other transcriptionists
security permission. Users will not be able to revise grading scores for their own reviewed
To revise a grading score, the user downloads a document in RDR mode and presses the
“Revise Scores” button above the MT Review Codes grid. He or she deletes any existing MT
Review codes and/or adds new MT Review codes, and the new score is reflected in the
Accuracy/Line score in the grid.
Attaching Standardized, Pre-Defined Pending Reasons to a Document
When EMon administrators enable both the Enhanced MT Review Features and the Use
Enhanced Pending List Management options in EMon, EditScript users can pend
documents by attaching administrator-defined pending criteria (with optional, free-text
comments) to a document instead of typing free-text descriptions. Each institution can
customize their own pending criteria through EMon. Once a user selects a pre-defined
pending criteria and attaches it to a document, that unique instance of the pending criteria
is known as a pending reason.
EditScript MT users can attach these pending criteria to documents via new shortcuts or
menu items, in both Transcription mode and Pending List Management mode. The pending
reasons are displayed in a grid above the document. In PLM mode, reviewers can use
shortcuts to navigate through the pending reasons and resolve them. When they resolve all
the pending reasons and upload the document, the document is considered to be
“unpended” (unless an additional validation rule is triggered on upload).
Note: If an institution does not to enable the “Use Enhanced Pending List Management”
option, MTs use the existing Pending Note functionality.
Displaying the Due Date for Dictations
EditScript MT v10 displays two new columns in the work queue grid (in all modes) showing
when a document is due to be completed. These columns are called: Local Due Date and
Institution Due Date. Local Due Date is shown using the time zone of the transcriptionist’s
PC and the Institution Due Date is shown using the time zone of the institution.
If the current time is past the due dates shown, then the turnaround time (TAT) has been
