How Paperless Are You Now?
To some degree we are already paperless E-mail, Word and PDF files Electronic Evaluation Systems (E*Value) ACGME WebAds for part of PIF and case logs Recruiting (ERAS) Survey tools (Survey Monkey)
Take a look at your office, what system do you use to store files?
You may not realize it but you do have a system, whether it was left to you by your predecessor or a one you developed
Are all of your files on subject x in one format (paper vs electronic), or do you have some in a paper file and some electronic? I drive myself crazy with this
Decide, ok, for these kinds of files, I will keep paper files; for these kinds of files, I will keep electronic files Dont have to go back and scan paper files or print electronic
files (too much work) just decide to employ your new system starting now
Stick to your plan
Decide what kinds of files you want to keep one copy of and what kinds of files you want to keep two copies of If you are afraid of losing files Consider one copy as a paper file and one copy electronic; or
two copies electronic in different places
Pros and Cons
Easier to share information E-mail Shared server Web-based
Easier to collect data across the program
Takes up less physical space
Cons Harder to share information
Data in different locations Can systems talk to each
other? User resistance
Risk of losing data (crash) and risk of software going obsolete
A word of advice . . .
Be consistent with naming and filing your e-mail files hard copy files computer files For example: Dont name your e-mail file Duty Hours
and your computer file Work Hours
Be consistent . . ..
The To-Do List
Get rid of all the pieces of paper you have written down To-Do tasks on
Instead, put your to-dos in an excel file with a column for due date
Makes it easy to sort, prioritize and keep track of the status
TASK WAITING? WAITING FOR WHAT? DUE DATE DONE?
