Just as you must recognize that inrepparttar give-and-take of leadership encounters, you'll occasionally get angry, you should also recognize that such anger is your great opportunity. An opportunity for you to achieve great results.

To understand this, I want you to remember David Coffin and Aristotle.

When writing my book, Executive Speeches: 51 CEOs Tell You How To Do Yours, I interviewed C.E.O. David Coffin who said, "I'm patient, reasonable, even tempered. But once my patience runs out, I give my best talks. .... Something has to be done. You want to get it done!"

I counsel leaders that great results happen inrepparttar 119439 realm ofrepparttar 119440 free choice ofrepparttar 119441 people you lead and that to give people choices, leaders should be "patient, reasonable, even tempered." They should also be great listeners and adapt at asking good questions ... most ofrepparttar 119442 time.

Occasionally, however, leaders must let their patience run out. They must get angry and show people they're angry ... because something has to be done and they want it done!

However, just getting angry and communicating that anger is not enough to seizerepparttar 119443 opportunity that anger can provide. That's where Aristotle comes in. Aristotle wrote in Nicomachean Ethics: "Anyone can be angry. That is easy. But to be angry withrepparttar 119444 right person, torepparttar 119445 right degree, atrepparttar 119446 right time, forrepparttar 119447 right purpose, inrepparttar 119448 right way -- that is not easy."

If you get angry, think of David Coffin and Aristotle. Be angry withrepparttar 119449 right person, torepparttar 119450 right degree, atrepparttar 119451 right time, forrepparttar 119452 right purpose, inrepparttar 119453 right way -- and you'll find you're getting increases in results.

Why are Electronic Medical Records advantageous?

An electronic medical record may contain three or four essential sections. There may be a section that allows for free writing about each patient thatrepparttar doctor can input whatever information he feels will be necessary later. There may also be a section where conclusions and any future plans can be entered and stored. There may also be a structured section which can contain data that is more template based (check boxes) or there can be controlled vocabulary by selecting certain medical terms from a dropdown list, or medical codes can be inputted. Since all of this data is stored electronically it will be clearly legible, neatly organized, and will allow for easy editing.

There is also another section that can be attached torepparttar 119438 electronic medical record but it does not allow for free editing on it. I am referring to picture-related information such as charts, and graphs. Pictures can also come from other places inrepparttar 119439 form of letters and bio tests, etc. and can be attached to a patientís medical record. Although picture related information cannot be edited directly there may be notes made regardingrepparttar 119440 information found inrepparttar 119441 image in another section referring torepparttar 119442 image.

Another huge advantage to keeping electronic medical records isrepparttar 119443 ease of access and small storage space required. All patients records can be stored digitally on a server and entered into a database allowing for an incredibly fast way to find a particular patients record. Some software companies that specialize in electronic medical records even allow all patients medical records to be accessed securely from anywhere viarepparttar 119444 internet.

As you can see, medical records are very important and contain extremely pertinent information regarding each patient. With such an important record there needs to be an effective method to keeping these records organized, legible and easy accessible. All of this can be accomplished with electronic medical records.
