I am not a fan of paper, never have been.
For me it has always been computers, and now a lot of people have cottoned onto the fact that lots of paper means money, lost space and environmental impacts.
Busy Lizzie works with a lot of medical consultants, GPs and solicitors and as you can imagine they use a lot of paper, or so I used to think. 6 years ago I worked with a consultant that had just come back from working in the UK. Before I worked with him, I had never seen a paper free medical office. All faxes, letters and communications were scanned onto the patients profile, all dictations was digital and transcribed (letters were printed, but a lot were emailed) and back ups were taken each night. Now setting something like this up does take time and money, but you have to think of the long-term outcomes. There was more room in the suite, to take on more consultants, brining in more money. Printing costs were very low, and the cartridges were also refilled, again saving money and the planet.
What small changes can you make in your office?
