Each week, healthcare organizations exchange thousands upon thousands of pages of patient- and business-related data. Even with the adoption of electronic medical record (EMR) and other critical health information technology (HIT) systems, the preferred method of information exchange in the healthcare industry remains the fax machine. In the 2012 National Physicians Survey, 63% of respondents stated fax was their primary form of communication.
The need for fax, especially within the healthcare community, is not going away any time soon. It is a product that is familiar to most workers, transcends operating and EMR systems and offers more security than email. It is also a communication system that provides a necessary and consistent paper audit trail.
With all those benefits, you may think your organization can’t get by without your fax machine.
