The vast majority of hospitals still print some or all of their prescriptions, which makes the potential benefits of Rx fax digitization clear. But did you know that electronic Rx faxing and data capture still help hospitals that have fully digitized prescription orders? Whether through an EMR module or standalone application (such as Surescripts or Allscripts-NEPSI software), electronic prescriptions are gaining ground due to a combination of efficiency, patient safety, and regulatory changes. The workflow improvements are often substantial, as paper is largely removed from the prescription ordering workflow.
E-Prescribe Fax & OCR IntegrationHowever, when certain prescriptions still need to be transmitted in hard copy, users tend to find themselves back at the fax machine, consuming costly paper and toner while wasting time better spent helping patients. Fortunately, for any Rx application or module capable of printing, the solution is as simple as a cost-effective digital fax solution or hosted fax service.
