While Genie doesn't integrate directly with fax, there are options available to you if you'd like to be able to fax your letters and records.
The simplest way to achieve this is to use an electronic fax application with Genie. These types of applications function in one of two ways; either they allow you to 'print' the letter and take the place of the printer, turning the print job into a fax; or they allow you to email the letter to a specific email address, and the service turns the email into a fax.
In each case, you'll need to install a suitable application to intercept the letters you create in Genie.
How does it work?
1: If you are referring to sending letters back to a patient's referrer or interested party (e.g. usual GP), my first recommendation would be to actually use Healthlink as it is much easier and far more secure for delivering "sensitive" information.
Most of the practice we do have the ability to send PDF documents from Genie using an eFax service via our Microsoft Outlook.
Essentially our process is we go into the patient letter, print it to a PDF printer (e.g. CutePDF or PDF Printer), we then click the Email button within the PDF printer application and it launches a new email message in Microsoft Outlook with the PDF file attached. We then send the email to the recipients fax number in the format of phonenumber@ourfaxserviceaddress.
(e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com eFax service on our server then sends the PDF file to that fax number.
