Thanks to our new lab database, a nice scanner, and some great IT guys, our lab has completely gone paperless.  Requisition forms are now scanned in to create an "electronic chart" for each patient.  When complete, all results are uploaded to this "chart" as pdfs.  Reports are electronically signed and faxed directly to the physician without ever printing.  Thus, no need for charts and other unecessary paper and no carrying stacks of charts between the staff.

We're doing our part to decrease waste and help the environment!
