The average practice spends up to $162 every month on faxing alone. For every 5,000 fax pages, these costs include $72 on toner, $50 per case of paper, and $40 for each fax line – this doesn’t even factor in staff cost, time, and disruption of focus. If you consider that your office staff spends approximately 2 minutes per fax – going to and from the fax machine, manually dialing numbers, printing and filing transmission reports, scanning faxes into charts, and locating or duplicating work to find faxes or fax them again. Now, think about the number of faxes your practice gets every day. Multiply by the rate you pay your office staff, and that’s how much faxing costs your practice. Doctors and practice managers are frequently surprised by this cost!
Whether you are doing your part for the environment, keeping an eye on your practice’s financial bottom line, or just trying to reduce the piles of papers that take over most offices, there are many reasons for going paperless in your practice. There are significant cost-reducing benefits to ditching paper for smoother, integrated technologies.
Integrated Network Fax allows MacPractice users the solutions you need to have all of your practice faxes consolidated into one universal inbox. You can respond to, forward, copy, sign, route, and file your faxes within one interface. Integrated fax is available directly within the MacPractice application. It can also be accessed anywhere with an internet connection (not limited to your Mac at the practice!) so physicians can review, sign off and file on the go.
More Patients, Less Paper
With Integrated Network Fax, you are on your way to being paperless as your document arrives in your inbox as a PDF. Depending on where it came from, your fax arrives at one specified inbox for easy organization. For example, lab reports go to one inbox and referrals to another. PDFs can be divided up page by page so that only the necessary pages are routed, filed, or refaxed. Online editing tools let you edit faxes to add information, make notes, highlight critical information, date items, redact data or personal information, or insert a signature. Everything is electronic – nothing needs to be printed or scanned. Then, that edited fax can be routed for review, faxed back out, and filed in the MacPractice patient chart – all at the same time! And if that return fax number is busy, there’s nothing else to do. The software keeps on refaxing until it goes through, and you can quickly go back check the status to see when it was delivered. There’s no printing, copying, scanning, walking faxes around for signature, or adding to stacks of paper to file in charts. Integrated Network Fax built-in MacPractice powered by Updox lets you focus more on patients and less on paperwork.
