CREATING AND USING MACROS
TO INCREASE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY

Using macros when typing medical transcription will
increase your production without the need to type faster.
This means less time spent sitting at your computer, less
stress and strain on your body, and more money in your
paycheck.

By following these simple guidelines and incorporating the macros provided in this book into your daily typing routine, you will increase your production by over50

PERCENT!

You can never have too many macros. Anytime you type
a word or phrase more than three times in one day, you
need to make a macro for it. Use the pages provided at
the back of this guide to list the macros you create.
Keep this guide by your computer for reference until you
begin to get familiar with the macros you have started
using and in no time, using the macros will become habit
and you will start seeing your production rate increase.

12 TIPS FOR CREATING MACROS
1.The simplest and most common way to make a macro
is to use the first letter of each word. Leave out words
such as a, the, and, etc.
Example: hrrr/heart has a regular rate and rhythm
2. When making macros for two words, you can use the
first two letters from each word.
Example: otne/otherwise negative
3.For longer words, use the first and last letter of the
word.
Example: ory/originally
4.Add letters to the beginning or ending of words to
increase their use.
Example: rom/range of motion \u2013 then add farom/full
active range of motion
5.Create macros for words that are often spelled
incorrectly.
Example: adn/and, hten/then, caues/cause, etc.

7. Make macros for common drugs and phrases that you
type on a daily basis.

8. Personalize your macros for particular doctors and the repetitive phrases that they use, such as physical exams, impressions, follow-ups, etc.

macro file.

months of the year, etc.
