Go Green, Go Paperless
While saving time, cost and providing better Healthcare Service
Benefits of going Paperless
1. Environmentally Friendly
If environmental issues are important to you and your hospital or you have clientele that care about these issues, going paperless can boost your status in the community. For example, digitization of your files will result in fewer photocopies, reducing hospital paper consumption. The less we use today means the more we leave behind for future generations. If you are part of the Green Revolution, making your business paperless is a great place to start.
2. Reduce Operating Costs
Storage costs represent a major expense. Typically, office space is second only to salaries in terms of cost, especially in large cities. As the piles of paper grow, so too do your storage costs. Scanning documents can substantially reduce storage costs by eliminating a significant portion of your paper files and the storage space required to store them. You can then put the space once used for storage to more productive use.
3. Increase Productivity
Call it a variant of Murphy‘s Law — when you need a paper file, it is inevitably located at the bottom of a large stack of files on the floor in the corner of somebody‘s office. For example, law firm personnel can spend literally hours every year looking for paper files. In an industry that typically charges by the hour, that‘s not a productive use of time.
4. Better Security
Paper documents are subject to two risks — physical theft and destruction from a variety of disasters (fire, flood, etc.). When you digitally store confidential documents, you can restrict access to your eyes only. For example, you can limit the access of sensitive patient information or specific reports files to selected people.
5. Improve Customer Service
At one time or another, everyone has been on the receiving end of the dreaded phrase ―I‘ll have to check the documents and get back to you.‖ Consider how much happier your customers would be if you could say, ―Let me pull up the document now and check for you,‖ resolving their question during a single phone call? As an added bonus, the ability to search documents makes it less likely that you‘ll overlook that key piece of information.
