The ABCZ system offers the medical transcriptionist an innovative, simple system of abbreviations to enter text more quickly, reliably and with fewer keystrokes than ever before. The basic rule of the ABCZ method is to use the first three letters of a word (hence ABC) and its last letter (hence Z). So for example, you use hosn for the word hospitalization.
