My imagination started running wild on this, so I did a quick calculation with an average therapist who sees 5 clients a day, 5 days a week. With 2 sheets per client per treatment, that makes a pile of over 40,000 sheets, double that with insurance forms, and double it again for folders. That’s ~120,000 sheets of paper = 1200 – 1500 lbs, 110 meters cubed, which would fill a 4000 cubic foot storage unit, costing about $280/month to take care of
Not to mention, privacy and safety concerns that they’re now responsible for. Paper forms cause delays, misuse staff time and contribute to billing inaccuracies, inter alia.
Maybe it’s time to switch to a client management system
that includes the ability to keep your treatment notes
attached right to your client records, all secured, encrypted on the cloud (with online booking included – that will limit the phone calls and paper needed there too!).
