When was the last time you couldn't find an important paper you knew you had carefully put away? Getting organized is not easy. It takes time and commitment to get all your family records in order and to answer such questions as: Where does our money go? How much do we own? How much do we owe? Organizing and keeping family records in a business-like manner can save you time, trouble, money and frustration. In establishing a record-keeping system, you need to consider: what records should be kept; where they should be kept; and how long they should be kept.

Accessing a patient record at Dr. Mahesh Krishnamoorthy's office used to mean sifting through 3,000 paper folders. And if part of that record was lost, Krishnamoorthy said, it could have meant a longer wait time in the lobby until somebody found it. Or worse, the doctor would have incomplete information at the time of the patient's appointment. "In medicine, inadequate, incomplete information is fraught with dangerous risks for the patient," Krishnamoorthy said. Risks could range from missed appointments and duplicate tests to bodily injury and death, he said.
