Liberate your organization from antiquated technology and spend more time doing what you love: caring for your clients and communities.
Many industries retired the fax machine decades ago, and it’s easy to see why. Among incorrect numbers, busy signals, illegible printouts and mountains of paper, why does your organization still rely on faxing?
Eliminating your organization’s reliance on paper is one simple way to improve the exchange of information that supports the quality of care your clients and communities deserve. Join us in the mission to go completely fax-free by 2020.
Faxing is slow, labor intensive, and less secure than digital data sharing.
The act of faxing consumes thousands of tons of paper each year, creating storage and environmental issues.
A provider cost for a manual prior authorization transaction for medication is $5.75, and for an electronic transaction it is $2.55. That is a cost savings of $3.20 per transaction per provider.
Time is of the essence in healthcare. Electronic health records provide clinicians with immediate access they need to make critical care decisions.
The 2019 Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare Index reports that 33 percent of prior authorization for medication is completely manual by phone, fax or email. 54 percent is partially electronic, and 13 percent is fully electronic.
More healthcare organizations are saying goodbye to paper records and hello to connectivity and interoperability thanks to technology. With initiatives like Carequality, healthcare providers can share and exchange health information data seamlessly with health networks and other providers.
More than 50% of all healthcare providers are connected through the Carequality interoperability framework.
