61% of doctors say that the fax machine is their predominant means to share information with other doctors! Does that shock you? Why? Did you think faxing was a thing of the past? Well, you are certainly not alone. It is easy to see why many think faxing is the dinosaur of technology when so many new “flashy” products have come to market since the inception of faxing. How has faxing (especially in the medical world) stayed on the leaderboard for so long? Security, security, security. With HIPAA and HITECH governing how health institutions handle confidential patient information, the need has never been greater for an efficient and secure way to get protected health information (PHI) from point A to B.
When you choose EPIC EMR (or similar EMR for that matter) for your physician group or hospital, you make the choice to move away from paper records. One problem is solved, but another still needs to be addressed: the need to share those records. Test results, prescriptions, transcripts, referrals, etc… need to be safely and securely moved digitally between departments, locations and individuals. Faxing from EPIC is safe, secure and keeps a complete audit trail of all paper activity. Did you know that RightFax can easily be integrated with EPIC? It can, and we have experience integrating it in almost all major hospitals in the Midwest, as well as numerous clinics around the country.
