Common Use Cases for Epic EHR Fax Integration
Pharmacy Legacy Systems Connected Through Epic EHR Fax Integration
Pharmacy A needs to transfer a prescription to pharmacy B. Pharmacy A is using Epic as their EHR, but pharmacy B has only legacy software and a fax machine. Pharmacy A can use their Epic EHR fax integration to transmit the document via Retarus to pharmacy B.
Medical practices keep track of patient records in electronic form, helping them to be more organized and save paper. Epic will automatically store faxes attached to patient records, so that there is no confusion about what was sent and to whom.
A hospital needs to send a blood work order to a laboratory. The doctor inputs all the relevant information into a form, which generates an electronic lab order. The hospital staff now have the option to send an Epic fax including the order to the lab. All records are saved automatically and sent securely under HIPAA compliance.
A physician needs to refer one of their patients to a specialist. Instead of faxing the entire patient record – which could be thousands of pages long – to the specialized physician, they can fax just the relevant information or pages. Within the EHR, the doctor can select specific data, such as information about the patient’s latest visit, simply generate an Epic fax, and immediately send it directly to where it needs to go.
Release of Information (ROI) is a process found in most hospitals. Various organizations can request patient information or history from a hospital. Epic has an automated process to generate these ROI requests, and then fax them via the Epic EHR fax integration.
Utilization management (UM) is a process that evaluates the efficiency, appropriateness, and medical necessity of the treatments, services, and procedures provided to patients. Epic has automated processes to generate these evaluation forms, which can be faxed via the Epic EHR Fax Integration.
