Save a Tree Save some Money

We have multiple committees all over the hospital and all require agenda's and packets. R&D and IRB have huge packets (500 or more sheets of paper) for 25 or so people. At the end of the meeting all the paper goes to the recycle bin. So my idea is to go digital with these agendas. I'm sure that by purchasing electronic tablets we could save a lot of trees and money on paper. Digital is the way of the future everything will eventually be digital. Why not start now with purchasing tablets for the committees. I'm also certain other branches of the hospital that are paper heavy could benefit from going paperless and using tablets. While the initial cost might be a bit much the money saved on paper would eventually even out. We could be more environmentally friendly and save money!

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
