OfficeMate and ExamWRITER User Documentation Wins New Awards

Carrie and Michael display the awards that they won for the Eyefinity documentation at the awards banquet.

Did you achieve meaningful use in 2011 and receive stimulus money from the government as part of the HITECH Act? Are you working to achieve meaningful use in 2012? If meeting the government’s requirements for the EHR Incentive Program is a part of your business plan, then you probably are probably using a document written by Carrie Chambers, the Director of Documentation at Eyefinity, to help you complete the required steps in OfficeMate/ExamWRITER to achieve meaningful use. This document, “Achieving Meaningful Use with OfficeMate/ExamWRITER” recently won an Award of Excellence in the 2011–2012 Society for Technical Communication (STC) Southern California Technical Documentation Competition.

In addition to the meaningful use documentation, the “Backing Up & Restoring Data” document, written by Michael Opsteegh, Senior Technical Writer at Eyefinity, won an Award of Merit in the competition. Hopefully, you have a proven backup solution in place for all of your OfficeMate/ExamWRITER data files! When you set up your solution (or, if, unfortunately, you had to use your solution to restore your files), you probably read this document to ensure that you always backup (and restore, if necessary) your OfficeMate/ExamWRITER files correctly.

These two pieces of Eyefinity documentation were recognized for their excellence in technical communication. The judges commented that the “Achieving Meaningful Use with OfficeMate/ExamWRITER” document is comprehensive, consistent, professional, and visually-appealing. They noted that the “Backing Up & Restoring Data” document is engaging, well written and organized, and very easy to understand.

The Southern California STC chapters sponsored the technical documentation competition to recognize and encourage excellence in communication through printed and online media. The competition honors technical writers and editors who set the standard for published technical communication.

If you are working to achieve meaningful use, be sure to refer to the “Achieving Meaningful Use with OfficeMate/ExamWRITER” document as you work in OfficeMate/ExamWRITER. And, if you need help backing up and restoring your OfficeMate/ExamWRITER data files, read the “Backing Up & Restoring Data” document. In addition to these documents, the Documentation team at Eyefinity has published an ever-expanding library of helpful information – check it out at OfficeMate.net!
