While many providers now use electronic health records (EHRs) as a part of health care reform, communication is still largely paper-based. Many of them still rely on paper-based orders, test results, referrals and care transitions. In fact, a recent study shows only 14 percent of doctors electronically share patient information with other providers outside of their facility.1 As a result, staff members spend much of their day on time-consuming faxes, paperwork and calls. These tasks reduce productivity. They also often lead to delays, miscommunications and low patient and doctor satisfaction.
