With today’s technologies, there are multiple ways for anesthesiologists and surgeons to keep organized and transfer documents while driving in the city, roaming the halls of the hospital, or during a case in the OR. No one should have to hunt for a photocopier. Anesthesia records or surgeon’s notes can be securely sent to your office within seconds of completing them, and feedback for verification is just as quick.
Confidential text conversations, individual and group conversations, can be more secure and independent of any hospital system. It’s inexpensive. And it’s indispensable for running an efficient schedule and maintaining quality control. The hard part is knowing which of these technologies to use, and how to properly set them up to be productive.
