When patients come in for a Pap smear, we have them write their name and address on an envelope, which we file in a box organized by month. Then as results come in, we retrieve the appropriate envelopes from the box and mail them out. Any envelopes left in the folder at the end of the month serve as reminders that those patients haven't been contacted yet.
