Here’s what you should do if you’re tired of having to change “HER” back to “EHR” in Microsoft Word, Excel, and other apps (I copied some of this from the Microsoft Help text):

  1. Click the File tab and then, under Help, click Options.
  2. If you are using Outlook 2010, click Mail and then click Spelling and AutoCorrect…For all other programs, go to step 3.
  3. Click Proofing.
  4. Click AutoCorrect Options.
  5. Find “ehr” in the list. It will appear in the Replace box.
  6. Click Delete.
  7. Rejoice and type “EHR” to your heart’s content.
