Doctors spend 20% of their time dealing with paper. This means that a significant portion of their work involves handling paperwork, such as filling out forms, documenting patient information, and managing administrative tasks. This can include tasks like writing prescriptions, reviewing medical records, and completing insurance paperwork. The high percentage suggests that doctors have to allocate a significant amount of time to administrative duties, which can potentially impact the amount of time they can spend with patients and providing medical care.

It indicates that the majority of doctors still rely on traditional methods of communication rather than email.
