Right now one gets paper copies of drug info when they get their prescription refilled. Paper copies should be provided on all NEW prescriptions, but NOT on every refill issued. This would save a lot of paper and cut costs!
When printing copies of medical files from the Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) the current program prints a cover page that contains PII that has no purpose for office use for every Progress Note printed. Since most Progress Notes are only one page long, deletion of this cover page from the program would typically result in a 50% reduction of the paper used.
