In todayâ€™s marketplace healthcare, educational and corporate organizations are faced with consumer demands to improve product and service outcomes and efficiency. When utilizing user-friendly and proficient home, office, school, drafting or medical furniture to implement a well-organized paperless processing system you can further enhance your organizationâ€™s emphasis on environmental stewardship and, thereby, your consumer appeal. And with nearly 4 billion trees being cut down each year to create paper, you can also play an important part in reducing this environmental impact.
The Benefits of Paperless Processing
When people hear that your organization operates a â€œpaperlessâ€ office, they often assume that the primary benefit of this management decision is an environmental motivation to save trees. However, there are numerous other benefits that paperless processing offers your organization.
Likely the most compelling of these benefits for many organizations is the increase in productivity. Managing documents in the traditional, tangible manner can be time consuming and space consuming. Continually organizing files and charts pulls you away from projects you are working on and occupies your time with less important tasks like file searching, copying, faxing or mailing. By incorporating productive office furniture into your organizationâ€™s workflow you can easily switch to a paperless processing system that enables all of your documents and files to only be just a few clicks away.
The Digitization of Medical Records: A Success Story
In past years medical staffs relied on printed charts to detail patient history, symptoms, medications, allergies and other pertinent information. A mix up in charts or illegible handwriting can be disastrous for unsuspecting patients, contributing to the more than 200,000 adverse conditions experienced by patients that are resultant of doctor error each year. In fact, according to Boomberg.com just five years ago only 12 percent of doctors and 11 percent of hospitals had comprehensive technology systems in place that enabled the electronic tracking and use of important patient information.
Inspired by such grim statistics the health care industry is rapidly digitizing. The â€œHealth Information Technology For Economic and Clinical Health Act,â€ a component tucked into the 2009 economic-stimulus bill, is spurring this movement along. This act requires the industry moves to paperless processing and record keeping.
For all of the benefits listed above, the digitization of the healthcare industry will significantly improve the efficiency, productivity, safety and value in patient healthcare. In fact, a review of the new health IT policies done by the Congressional Budget Office concluded that moving to an entirely digital, paperless processing system
â€œhas the potential to significantly increase the efficiency of the health sector by helping providers better manage information.â€
