How Does BDS Work?
HIMSS 2013 was an excellent opportunity to meet with Biscom customers and connect with new prospects. The event included 2.5 days of exhibits, with all the leading suppliers of Health IT products in the industry who market to hospitals, health plans, and practices.
Monday, March 5th the 2013 HIMSS conference exhibition hall opened in the afternoon. 32,000+ healthcare professionals are expected this year in New Orleans this week. During the first day Warner Thomas, President and CEO of Ochsner Health System was the keynote speaker.
The afternoon brought a variety of meetings, ranging from technology analysts, multiple Biscom customers looking to expand their fax operations or inquire about Biscom's capabilities in the secure file transfer area.
The number of mobile devices in the world is increasing as an incredible rate. It seems that smart phones and tablets are becoming so common that it's more odd to see someone without one. When you try to incorporate that device into your organization, use it to do your work, or just keep in touch with your colleagues, you're also adding to the headaches your IT team has to deal with.

Though the fax machine may be on the verge of extinction, industry findings suggest that the fax industry will grow by 6.9% CAGR through 2017 (Frost & Sullivan). Why? As Peter Davidson of Davidson Consulting explains: "Fax has evolved into a computer-driven capability that integrates with every type of information system, and is capable of receiving documents, turning them from images into data in a matter of seconds, and is of enormous benefit to both productivity and bottom line.”
And with that, fax technology is being used in fresh ways, especially in healthcare. Ourcustomer highlight today is Barnes Healthcare Services (BHS). As a privately-owned medical equipment company, BHS sends and receive medical equipment orders, invoices, and prescriptions from doctors, physical therapists, and hospitals.
Prior to implementing Biscom's Hybrid Fax platform BHS experienced many issues, including delayed delivery of faxes. "The Web-based fax service we were using wasn't reliable. We experienced issues, including the system being down frequently, and delayed delivery of faxes to our customers. We had to find a way to restore customer confidence and demonstrate that the faxes critical to their work and business would be delivered rapidly and without mistakes," said BHS’s Director of Information Technology.
It’s a quiet Friday afternoon right before a major American holiday - hopefully you’ll be doing something fun this weekend. I often find myself catching up on my industry reading during this time of the week. Several recent articles had me thinking about what we do here at Biscom and how we’ve been able to help our customers solve critical business issues related to their document delivery needs.
An excellent article in Healthcare IT News (8/2012) on how fax remains the predominant form of communication for 63% of healthcare providers with experts saying fax will continue for decades. This article also begins to explain why.
