Although your feet are at the 'top' of our list to save, our future and our earth are important to us as well. Global warming, pollution and the depletion of our natural resources are just some of the many threats to our environment and our future. In an effort to do our part for a better tomorrow the Advanced Footcare Clinic is launching a 'Go Green' campaign. Dr. Vail says, "We only have one earth to live on and the future of our children depends on each and every one of us doing our part to make a difference. Every little bit helps and collectively we can make a big impact so that future generations have a chance to enjoy the world around us as we do today."
In our medical practice, we have initiated many changes to promote an eco-friendly environment. These changes include:
Implementing Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
- This system makes all of the patient records electronic, significantly reducing the paper used in the practice. In addition, this system offers increased safety in protecting private patient information.
Digital X-Ray Imaging
- Digital X-ray images can now be created immediately without the need for toxic chemicals or films for developing. In addition, the X-Ray image is only printed if needed by the patient or referring physician.
- This program allows the doctors in the practice to subscribe medications to the pharmacy electronically, eliminating the need for paper referral pads.
- The E-Newsletter informs our existing patients and community of updates and foot care information at the convenience of a mouse click, thus eliminating paper newsletters, including the stamps and labels needed to mail them.
Recycling print cartridges thru a local resource.
Eco-Friendly light bulbs used throughout our practice
Recycling all paper, bottles and plastic from within our practice
Acquiring eco-friendly products such as Dr. Comfort® socks made with a renewable resource-bamboo fibers or Dr. Vail's new line of foot creams called 'Step Soothers' made with only natural and renewable ingredients from farms in Southern California.
Our newest effort is our 'Go Green' recyclable bags.
