Not only are you training staff on equipment, procedures, and regulations, you may also be educating staff about information security, privacy, and confidentiality issues while also helping employees prepare for an upgrade to your medical records system. Reporting regularly on this information and having it readily available at all times for audits reduces your risk and should provide an efficient way of disseminating this information.

The volume of information being created is increasing faster than we can make sense of it. Indeed, the ease with which organizations can generate, review, and retrieve information has helped them build a considerable amount of potential learning resources.

I'm making this a new post even though I started it as a comment on George's post about Informalization of everything. First, the "informalization of everything" is important. This will change over the next 18 months due to telecomm policy in India, and it will be interesting to see how information-seeking changes!)
