Streamline document scanning

Would like to scan documents directly to the Document section. Now we have to scan to the computer and then upload.

As many of you know, we have deployed the ability for faxes to flow into Practice Fusion from Updox. This method of document publishing may be a positive alternative to scanning of documents.

We will leave this idea as “Acknowledged” for now.

To sign up for this service, please fill in the Updox form here to create your Updox account or call an Updox representative at (614) 798-8170 ext. 1 to begin the process.

    Having the direct messaging addresses capable of receiving emails from copiers/scanners would further streamline this feature. Please do!!!!!

    Yes - ability to fax directing into PF would be ideal! That would be #1 on my wish list!

    If this were possible, it would improve HIPPA risks as any computer used to upload documents has to be cleaned at multiple levels to insure no patient PHI is there, by way of documents scanned in and deleted yet waiting in the trash bin to be completely removed.....

    Would save a great deal of time if documents could be directly scanned and uploaded to practice fusion instead of having to save the document to my computer and then upload it.

    This would be so helpful! We switched to PF the beginning of 2015 and still have a major backup of scans that need to be uploaded because of the workflow of it all.

    yes, document scanning needs to be streamlined. The ability to fax directly into PF would be even better.

    Also if those uploaded documents could go into custom category and not show up under pending until one selects that specific category.

  • Debbie Foley commented  · 

    This would save lots of time and allow the physicians to have faster access to the documents
