Introduction

Dr. Octo Barnett once said that “the practice of healthcare is dominated by how well information is processed, reprocessed, retrieved, and communicated.” Healthcare is fundamentally about information, and healthcare professionals are under increasing pressure to accomplish more, and do it better and faster. Microsoft Office 2003 provides the tools to do this and more. Each of its programs—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, Publisher, and OneNote—has a special function, yet they all work together.

Office Word 2003 is a word processing program you can use to create documents, such as reports and referral letters. Office Excel 2003 is a spreadsheet program to help you organize, analyze, and present data, such as monitoring staff development activities and preparing budget reports. Office PowerPoint 2003 is a presentation program to help you create and deliver professional presentations. Office Access 2003 is a database program you can use to store and manage large collections of related information, such as patient demographics and quality indicators. Office Outlook 2003 is a communication and information management program to help you manage e-mail messages, appointments, contacts, and tasks. Office Publisher 2003 is a publishing program to help you create newsletters or a practice Web site. Office OneNote 2003 is a flexible note management program to help you take, organize, and find notes.
