Typing speed can only get you so far. Any timsavers for medical transcriptionists will increase your production and therfore your pay. Some of my best medical transcription timesaving tips can be found under this heading.
One of the best medical transcription tips I can offer might end up saving you research time and trouble. Another page deals with the difficulty of referencing eponymous names and offers a list of frequently terms. This tip involves eponymous terms with the “f” sound. If you are having difficulty finding the spelling for a word that you believe starts with “f” search that word with “pf”. This tip was actually given to me by my supervisor Lynn the other day when I was having trouble referencing a surgical term. I knew it was an abdominal surgery and sounded like fannon steel. I searched for quite some time before I consulted Lynn. Once she clued me in to a possible “pf” spelling I found pfannensteil almost immediately.
