Some people are uncomfortable reading reports electronically. They seem to need the paper to touch and make notes. Plus printing and reading the reports is a vestige of the old pre-digital days. That is the way we had to do it and that is what feels right.

Of course all that printing is a waste of time, money and paper. Plus if you do want to make any changes you still have to go back to the digital file to fix things.

Try it, review bills, reports, patient forms and anything else you used to do with paper on the computer. It will feel wrong and awkward but once you get over the initial awkwardness it is really faster and much more efficient.

Stop yourself whenever you are about to hit the print button and ask. Is this really necessary?
