Small and medium-size community healthcare providers have largely been left out of the digital revolution to transfer paper documents into electronic medical records (EMRs). At best, they are way behind their bigger brothers, larger healthcare companies and hospitals. A healthcare MFP (multifunction printer) can help bridge that gap.
Smaller providers such as community hospitals, general practitioners, urgent care and rehabilitation centers need to access medical records in order to provide follow-up care for patients. Providers who refer patients to specialists and/or hospitals, need access, too. Without it, patient care may be affected as doctors must make timely decisions affecting patient health.
Through a cloud-based data exchange network called Kno2, providers have the ability to securely send and receive EMRs with the touch of a button, literally. Along with print, copy, scan and fax features, a healthcare MFP offers a “share patient information” button that scans documents and sends them on their way. Kno2 offers a searchable directory which you can access from the printer and select the recipient from millions of providers throughout the country.
Designed for use by small to mid-sized providers, the healthcare MFP frees up office staff from faxing, mailing and having to re-enter patient information. Even smaller providers can find better uses for that kind of time savings.
