Updox enables practices to efficiently communicate with partners and patients to lower costs and improve productivity
Dublin, Ohio, February 18, 2016 - Updox, the industry leader for physician connectivity and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions for healthcare, announced it was selected by GeniusDoc Inc. to provide its integrated communications solution to GeniusDoc customers. GeniusDoc is a fully-integrated electronic health record and practice management solution which caters to multiple specialties nationwide, but focuses on Hematology/Oncology.
Through this new partnership, GeniusDoc is able to offer customers a web-based, fully integrated solution that allows practices to manage messages, documents and faxes more efficiently in a completely paperless way. Practices that deploy the fully-automated solution drastically lower overhead expenses for paper, toner, scanners and phone lines while also saving countless staff hours and time spent faxing, scanning and filing.
"We’re very excited to partner with a specialty EHR like GeniusDoc," said Michael Morgan, CEO, Updox. "We understand that physicians and practices are tasked with seeing more patients, meeting more requirements and closely watching their overhead costs. Updox offers a proven solution where all incoming documents can be managed electronically and viewed, annotated, routed, signed, sent outside the practice and filed in the patient chart – all at the same time and even in the office or on a mobile device.”
Updox customers report the solution significantly lowered their faxing expenses by 75 percent reduction in paper and toner costs, up to 90 percent reduction in labor costs for scanning and faxing and more than $60 per month for dedicated phone lines that are no longer required.
“GeniusDoc was founded with the simple idea to help physicians enjoy the practice of medicine without the hassle of paperwork. Partnering with Updox to offer a paperless, hardware-free faxing solution is a natural fit,” says Sunil Nemani, CEO, GeniusDoc. "We saw the benefits that Updox offers, including getting information quicker and in a more actionable way, such as being able to review faxes outside of the office while completing rounds, were integral to better, more coordinated care."
Updox, integrated with more than 60 electronic health record (EHR) vendors who represent 225,000 physicians, has quickly become the place where healthcare connects. Through an extensive Direct messaging network and platform of communications apps, Updox connects all of the various healthcare providers, including physicians, patients, payers and partners. Once a part of the Updox platform, users can take advantage of the full suite of applications such as secure messaging, patient portal, appointment scheduling & reminders, credit card payments, and health alerts, all with the goal of driving improved outcomes through more efficient communications and better care coordination.
