Automated fax sorting with integrated fax



Increase staff efficiency and productivity within your busy practice.

Electronic health record (EHR) software has become much more sophisticated and inexpensive over recent years, and as such, so have products like integrated faxing. You can significantly increase your staff’s efficiency and productivity, and save your practice money, by simply adding integrated faxing to the AdvancedMD EHR. Integrated faxing has many advantages.

Save money & stay organized

Not only does integrated faxing save money on labor, paper, toner, costly fax lines and machine fixes, adding up to thousands of dollars each year, but makes faxing much easier to use. Likewise, practices will gain a greater benefit of no additional software costs or additional training expenses. The fax dashboard helps you quickly organize in- and outbound communications. You can also combine multiple page and file formats into a single outbound fax. The return on investment is high and the benefits of executing integrated fax can be realized within minutes.

Enhance your image

Integrated faxing saves on other intangible factors like your practice’s image, by adding professionalism to your communications. Convert your manual fax process to a paperless click process. When you receive faxes electronically, you can quickly distribute or attach them directly to the patient’s health record.

Save time

A major concern with manual faxing is the time it takes to send a fax. A conservative estimate, assuming no other distractions and no significant delays due to not having enough paper, fixing jams, and machine errors, changing toner, or talking to co-workers, takes about ten minutes. That’s right, on average, it takes about ten minutes to fax a document. What’s more, the received document prints in poor quality, with gray scales shown as black, slightly tilted and unreadable words. The end result is unprofessional.

Improve security

Send and receive information faster and more securely. If the document arrives at a communal fax machine, the chances of it becoming lost or misrouted only increase the need to switch to integrated faxing. It’s easy to imagine a fax being picked up as part of another person’s fax, misfiled, or lost on the floor or in the trash. In any of these scenarios, as you would expect, confidentiality is problematic. Likewise, email can be insecure and risky. These factors should help you determine if integrated faxing is right for your practice:

  • Reduce costs of faxing manually
  • Improve staff productivity
  • Require little change to the user’s routine
  • Improved security, with no need to sift through multiple faxes
  • Automatically route faxes to individuals, groups and locations
  • Archive faxes for later retrieval and record retention

Replacing standalone fax machines with integrated faxing allow users to quickly and easily send, receive and manage fax communications from their desktop. Users compose faxes through the AdvancedMD EHR.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
