Electronic Faxing with Epic

Our friends at Biscom recently published this great post regarding electronic faxing with Epic.

“HIPAA, HITECH, and Meaningful Use are typical reasons given for deploying electronic fax in healthcare organizations. Protecting confidential patient information is important and as we all know required. But how does electronic faxing improve the quality of patient care?

It makes a lot of sense to use electronic fax to save time, money, and improve healthcare. It’s faster and easier to send patient information via fax electronically to referring physician offices and insurance companies.  The information gets faxed faster plus there’s no loose paper trail.

Healthcare professional’s workload is reduced by eliminating the time of printing faxes and carrying to the fax machine. Faxing from Epic is as easy as selecting the fax number and clicking send. Healthcare professionals can fax physicians notes, referrals, lab results, scheduling, health records, and more. The fax status is returned and logged to the patient record supporting Meaningful Use. Re-sending failed faxes can be done easily from the Biscom’s web fax client.

Inbound faxes can be delivered into patient records by dropping them in an Epic approved document management solution. Paper is reduced and once again time is saved by delivering faxes electronically removing the trip to the fax machine and having patient information laying on a fax machine for someone to process and for anyone to view.

By streamlining the entire fax process, less time is spent on administrative paper work, and more time can be spent with the patient providing a higher quality of care.”
