Re: Digital Microscope ($70) Replaces my Dermatoscope plus Canon EOS w Macro Lens & (~$4000)
I have no obtained a dig microscope following reading this. Works very well. Still takes some time to import pictures into software.

We have now bought one to try as well. All docs in clinic have decided to get one after demoing it.
Re: Getting Growled at!
Hi Phil
DCP needs to be updated to the latest version for Growl. I have tested the MD3 and BP versions.

Other than that - I’m not sure what may be preventing Growl registering the DCP.
Perhaps firewall - the Growl app sends /receives messages via TCP, but I had no problem with growl and Norton Firewall . As it is on the local machine it should not be a problem.
Cheers
Re: Getting Growled at!
When Growl is running it doesn't notice the DCP starts up i.e. DCP is not registered with Growl. What may be blocking it?
Re: DCP Subscriptions - Soon available
Any update on how we can have non-doctors writing/contributing to care plans. Especially the AUSDRISK assessments!! At the moment, the nurses are doing AUSDRISK, but it is not being recorded in Doctor's Control Panel, and so the risk of unnecessary repetition is high.

UPDATE 2010
The k550 was retired.
I have now changed all printers over to HP 5400 dt models at the surgery. All have CISS. No problems with any of them.I was able to hunt around and find the superceded K5400 models at a rediculously CHEAP price $70-$100 at officeworks (scrounged all the stores in Victoria). I would have bought 10 at that price. Even with $130 for each CISS it is cheap.Total running cost for surgery is about $100 per year. Down from $1000+. Plus no inconvenience of replacing cartridges. I have two in my office plus a small epson for envelopes.

Innovation in general practice does not come easily. You have to work at it.

Getting the 'Team' 'on board' and staying focused is akin to the Wet Monkey Syndrome. When previous methods have failed or deemed too hard, it takes perseverence to try again. It also requires explanation and encouragement to keep the team focused!

Read This.

Imagine a room with four monkeys, and a bunch of bananas suspended from the ceiling.

The only way to get the bananas is to use the step ladder.

One of the monkeys attempts to climb the step ladder, and the moment he does, the fire hoses are turned on all of them.

The second one tries, again the fire hoses...

So no other monkeys try, they have learned.

Remove one of the monkeys and replace it with one who doesn't know about the fire hoses.

He will attempt to climb the step ladder, wondering why the others havent tried to get the bananas.

But... the other monkeys stop him, for of course they know!

Replace a second monkey, the new one will attempt to get the bananas, the others will stop him, INCLUDING the monkey that doesn't know about the fire hose.

Keep going, until all the original monkeys are gone, and the new monkeys will not attempt to get the bananas, but they don't know why.


This is a classic thought experiment about behaviour, and explains what happens in organisations.

There is a resistance to change, the principal being "We've always done it this way".

Wet Monkey Syndrome.

It takes effort to alter mindsets and behaviour.
