Finally, a good use for a camera phone.

My cell phone of 4 years finally croaked, so I bought a new phone. I actually did not want anything fancy, just a phone that made and received calls with reliability, which on Long Island, with its shoddy cell phone service, is no small feat. Other features on phones, like MP3 players and cameras etc are not important to me, and are merely toys. And you know what I think of toys, right?

So on call this weekend I had 4 consults, and you know what I did. I used the camera phone to take photos of the patient demographic sheet, or face sheet as we say.

Worked pretty well, though it does not save me any time. But in a pinch, could be a useful tool.
