The countdown to the millennium is underway and the excitement of celebrating a new century has many people making special plans to watch the calendar change. At the same time, much preparation is needed in the office to ensure that equipment and databases are capable of handling the calendar change. The date change difficulties are often referred to as the “Y2k bug.”
In large facilities, there may be a dedicated group of information technology individuals who provide support to test equipment, collect compliance documentation, and eventually reset dates to correct the date related problems. For other facilities or practices, the responsibility for Y2k preparation may rely on the clinical staff. The audiology clinic, in particular, is an intensively microprocessor based environment. This issue’s column is dedicated to providing information to assist you assessing your clinic’s risk for Y2k problems.
