Catch the Wave: Surf the Web to Increase Sales
By Wayne Care

Surfing the World Wide Web makes Hawaii and southern California look tame. It's a tsunami of data!

 If you arenít yet connected, you need to be. There is a wealth of information available on the web that can help you make sales and get a vast array of information that will be useful to you or your customers.

What do you do with this information once you have it? Many times when the customer asks a question, you can direct them to the site to get the answer. Better yet, just print them off an answer. Hereís a small fraction of whatís available on the World Wide Web.

MSDS

The best site for MSDS we have found is www.msdssearch.com.

Pharmaceuticals

Everything you ever wanted to know about Rx is available at www.rxlist.com, where top-selling prescriptions are listed as well as complete and detailed information on all of the drugs.

Safety/OSHA Information

OSHA has a good web site at www.osha.gov.

Check out the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) at www.cdc.gov/niosh/homepage.html for information on a wide variety of topics including latex allergy guidelines.

 Go to www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fedreg/a010118c.html to download the amended Bloodborne Pathogens standard.

Questions on drawing blood?Try www.phlebotomy.com. They have a great poster and a lot of information your customers can use on blood-drawing techniques.

Educational materials, posters, brochures and stickers relating to proper handwashing can be found at www.washup.org.

Need training on hepatitis C? Go to www.cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/hepatitis.

The Centers for Disease Control and Preventionís website has the latest recommendations for HIV therapy: www.cdc.gov/hiv/treatment.htm.

CLIA Information

CPT codes as well as Local Medical Review Policies (LMRPs) are important to your customers for understanding under what circumstances they can get reimbursed.
