It seems like infographics are all the rage these days. I have to admit that I’m generally enticed to look at an infographic when one is made available. Thus was the case when Practice Fusion posted this infographic which invites doctors and patients to “Just Say No” to Paper.

Some really interesting numbers to consider. The number that hit me the most was kind of hidden, but says:

7,000 people die each year from bad handwriting

I’d be interested to know how the study they reference calculated that number, but it certainly caught my attention.
