Paperless? What? I could never do that!... I have heard it all. However, I remember when I had to switch offices and that meant loading up my file cabinet. I thought, "I never want to move again if I have to lug all this stuff with me." Then came keeping up with the paper. It was a drag. Keeping copies of billing, forms, ect. And let me also remember how I had to do everything in my office because that was where the files were. There was that time I visited a colleague and their entire wall was lined with 5 drawer file cabinets. That is a lot of file cabinets to dust and secure to the wall in case of an earthquake. I could go into a little speech on how it saves trees, but I will spare you. Everyone thinks I am crunchy and granola as it is.
Going paperless in our practices is so convenient not just for us but for our clients as well. They can call us, asking that we speak to their physician and Voila! They log online, sign a release, and I can call right then and there. It is less for me to track and I love it. We also love Argonaut Software. You can go paperless, but that means you have to do your own encryption (in other words, making the file extra secure) and have a back up hard drive that you take with you. Argonaut does this for you. I don't have to back up my files or do any encryption.
Just imagine for a second what it would be like to not have charts, file cabinets, folders, sticky notes, and on and on. We'd think you'd feel more free to do what you love. We'd think that you wouldn't dread documenting your notes or keeping up with additional forms. We'd think, you would love it! If you aren't convinced, call us. We'd be happy to share more about how it can work. With a little bit of coaching, you can make the transition with ease.
