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

Page 4: 2013 GME Going Paperless

Decide, ok, for these kinds of files, I will keep paper files; for these kinds of files, I will keep electronic files Don’t 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

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

PHI concerns

Simple Ideas

A word of advice . . .

Be consistent with naming and filing your e-mail files hard copy files computer files For example: Don’t name your e-mail file “Duty Hours”

and your computer file “Work Hours”

Page 7: 2013 GME Going Paperless

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
