physicians must dictate their cases the same day they perform them. We monitor our dictation service reports daily. For each day they dic- tate all of their cases on the same day, we enter their name into a drawing. The doctor who wins the drawing spins the wheel to deter- mine which prize will be awarded to his staff. The prizes are mainly food: fruit and chocolate parties, cake, cookies, meals. Our docs like the competition. We like the effectiveness. Since we started the monthly drawings, in September, our same-day compliance has increased by about 24%. Vicki V.
