As a response to the reality of global warming, more and more people are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint and help heal our planet. Our practice has recently made some changes that will not only allow us to better serve and treat patients, but will help reduce our own carbon footprint. We are no longer using the physical chart system – we’ve gone paperless!
We feel that our practice has become identified with a high level of efficiency and high-tech procedures. As part of this approach – when patients come to our office, all their “paperwork” is handled electronically. When checking in, patients sign their documents on an electronic signature pad. The X-Rays that we take of them are also digital, which is better for the patients’ health. We have not changed our high level of patient care; we are simply striving to be more efficient and eco-conscious as well.
