Introducing your practice’s last fax solution

Despite healthcare’s tremendous progress shifting to an electronic world, providers still rely on faxing to share documents. While Aprima remains committed to helping physicians digitize their practices, we recognize that some providers have been slow to jump onto the technology bandwagon – which means practices still need a fax solution for clinical document sharing.

Good news: we’ve just made faxing easier.

We’re pleased to announce the general availability of a new, integrated cloud-based faxing solution from our partner, Kno2.

The Kno2 cloud faxing solution is designed to minimize manual processes and increase workflow efficiencies. At the same time, it promotes the transition from traditional faxing to digital document transmission so that it can be the last fax solution healthcare organizations will ever need. Over time, providers using the Kno2 cloud-based fax solution will send fewer faxes as more of their network switches to Direct Messaging and other forms of electronic document exchange. 

Other benefits of the Kno2 cloud faxing solution include:

  • The ability to port existing fax number(s)
  • No long distance or toll free charges
  • No additional hardware requires
  • HIPAA-compliant and fully secure, with encryption at rest and in transport
  • Competitive pricing
  • The ability for incoming faxes to be routed automatically and filtered to appropriate individuals or teams
  • The ability to separate bulk faxes by patient and documents
  • Electronic filing of individual items to each patients’ chart
  • Access to analytic dashboards to identify high-volume fax partners.

Introducing the first-ever comprehensive digital document exchange directory that automatically optimizes transmissions to the most interoperable form of exchange.

The Kno2 cloud faxing product offers much more than just faxing: it also provides access to the first-ever comprehensive digital document exchange directory that automatically optimizes transmissions to the most interoperable form of exchange, whether it be Direct Messaging or fax. What this means is that we’ve taken out much of the hassle associated with document sharing.

Consider a typical workflow for a provider who prefers Direct Messaging over faxing. Currently there is no universal directory of providers using digital exchange, so the sending provider must first reach out to the receiving provider and verify their digital exchange capabilities. If the receiving provider doesn’t have the ability to accept documents electronically, the sending provider must send a fax.

Now, however, Aprima users no longer need to verify whether the receiving provider is able to exchange documents electronically. Documents can be sent directly from Aprima EHR using Kno2’s proprietary technology and the system will automatically determine if the receiving providing can accept the document electronically, or if the transmission must be faxed. In addition, providers that can only accept documents in a faxed format will have the opportunity to sign up for a Kno2 account, starting at no charge, to encourage more of your network providers to send and receive documents digitally.

We look forward to the day when all providers can transmit documents electronically and faxing is a thing of the past. Until that day, we think Kno2’s revolutionary cloud fax provides a perfect solution that simplifies the data sharing process.
