Practice for the
RACS is a fully
digital “paperless” retinal practice. All patient
charts and documents are digital files that are backed up every day on multiple
data storage tapes. All imaging studies (such as retinal photographs) are digital
and can be viewed on any computer display monitor in or outside of the office,
e-mailed to patients and other physicians, or printed.
All patient demographic
and clinical information is immediately entered into computers that are located
in every room. Even multi-colored retinal drawings are “paperless” as
they are drawn into the system using portable Tablet PC computers. Finally,
Dr. Bynoe can access all of this information from any DSL internet connection
and can quickly deliver this information anywhere via e-mail, fax, or regular
