With increasing number of users, the structure of their inquiries changes and evolves. Recently, I noticed a new group of beginning users. They come from three main groups: education, medicine and law.

The most frequent of their questions is “HOW” - how do I apply Nozbe in my daily routine?

Thus an idea to write a short series of blogs with hints, ideas that are to provide a base for your own inventions.

I would like to present how Nozbe can be used in medical practice to start off with. I am waiting for your constructive feedback and hope that it will encourage you to share your own methods with others.

Specifics of medical work

There is a doctor and he has his patients. Seems simple. Yet, for each patient coming with a problem there is a series of actions/things to get a diagnosis and medication ready. Each diagnosis might require bunch of analysis done… And there might be more than one needed as a person may have more than one problem.

How to deal with that?

Option 1. Let patient name be your label and all matters you need done for him - your projects (since most will be more than 1 step/action). This will allow you to keep track of it all. Once you have all the data, filtering will make it easy to look through materials and get the diagnosis and drugs list ready. If you have the same things that need to be done for variety of patients… Use context for them.

Option 2. If option 1. is not clear enough, perhaps the second one will be more idea-breeding. It is likely that you need certain things done for several people. For instance the same analyses. You can group them into projects and use contexts to tag things that need to be done for given patient across different projects. Then, filtering by context, you can see the results and pull out a conclusion to be added in the main project “diagnose for Mr.A.”

Of course, choice of option and ideas you may draft based on this will vary. It all depends on your work style and requirements. I would not recommend option 2. if I were a person working on a team, with others looking at this (privacy of patient data might be in question here), but if you are alone standing physician it may just be the perfect solution for you.

Wrapping things up

I hope this gives you all some ideas and will aid you in becoming even more productive. Do stay creative about your use of Nozbe and please feel welcome to share it in the comments under this post.

Hope to hear your feedback and I trust that the 2nd post will also come in handy… This time for real estate agents.
