I use IBM computers for almost all my transactions, from patient medical records to inventory control each time I sell a pair of eyeglasses. I use computers for all personnel records and for various insurance, government, or other forms--in fact for all paperwork. I use the computer for all financial management, as well as for generating reports for patients. Since my office relies so much on computer use, I have several backup systems.

I do all of my typing on the computer, also using the computer to spell check my work. If I cant find the spelling of a drug or medical procedure, I go online where I have zillions of web sites available to me. When my work is done, I send it via e-mail to my boss.

When I was doing dietetics, I used a mainframe computer for hospital menus to do nutritional analysis of regular and special diets. Now, as a PTA President, I use it for meeting agendas, correspondence, and for monthly and annual records. Also, Ive done different award certificates.

I use computers in my work at Alexandria Hospital to record the images from endoscopy exams, to schedule patients for procedures or tests, to access the hospital database for patient information, and receiving test results. My unit also has a computer controlled drug dispensing system.

In my office we use our computer to keep track of patient records and profiles. Records includes allergies, perscribed medication, and insurance information. We rely on our computer for billing information and it has also become very usefull for ordering our medical supplies. One important feature is the backup capability built in to our computer system, which in effect lowers our insurance cost. These benefits have proven to me that computers are not only usefull but are a neccessary part of my practice.

As a medical transcriptionist in the medical records department of a hospital, computers are essential in my work. All medical records are typed or scanned into our computer system.
