Saving Keystrokes will help medical transcriptionists maximize their speed, productivity, and profits by effective use of software programs called abbreviation expanders, speedtyping software, and word completion software. Written by a medical transcriptionist, this one-of-a-kind reference shows how to create expanders and macros for use with this software. The book teaches easy-to-learn techniques for developing accurate expanders and expander lists for nearly everything a medical transcriptionist types. Included are specific expander techniques for capitalization, punctuation, symbols, headings, drugs, numbers, and phrases for handling predictable and not-so-predictable dictators and other chart details. Practice and test sections are integrated throughout the book.
