Abstract The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center launched a project to decrease the amount of time it took for clinicians to locate patient information. The team focused on three goals: reducing the number of charts that were incomplete at patient discharge, making “thinned” documents available online within 24 hours, and improving timeliness of decision making based on availability of scanned documents.
