The Impact of Paper on HIM
Let's cut the niceties and just come out and say it. We've all heard the phrase "explicit rolls down hill". Well, Health Information Management is at the bottom of that hill when it comes to paper form issues.
If you're an HIM Manager then you're more than familiar with these types of issues: wrong patient sticky labels on another patient's form, old form versions in production, lost forms, forms that don't have all the necessary signatures on them, forms that are not completely filled out, a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a form, etc.
Simply put we understand that your job as an HIM leader is hard enough, and paper is not helping you.
