I came across this picture of my desk just before we went "all in" with our electronic medical record six years ago:
It was a huge amount of work for our staff to organize and box all those old medical records that were sent off to a site unknown. I remember early on when we tried to get some old records after that happened. People just shrugged - no one had a clue how to retrieve them.
But you know what?
Now that we're farther away from that time, I can't say that I miss them.
Still, my current desk looks just as disorganized.
