Healthcare-Administration-Degree.net recently listed the top 10 greatest hospitals in the world, nine of which are located in the United States. These medical centers, awarded for their EHR adoption, document conversion services and related paperless initiatives, all focused on reducing waste produced through the care and servicing of patients.
According to Tom Stevens, author of the list, these facilities minimize their carbon footprint and do their part to save the planet in an industry full of "power guzzling hospitals."
"These modern, state-of-the-art facilities feature a whole host of eco-friendly initiatives, from paperless record keeping to energy-conserving boilers, green roofs and on-site power plants," the article states. "Health care administration graduates working at these green-minded facilities can rest a little easier, safe in the knowledge that their employers are doing more than their share to help save the planet."
For any hospital, embracing paperless initiatives with document management software and the appropriate supporting services will help kickstart a greener way of operating and help doctors and other medical staff save lives and the planet at the same time.
