A lot of times we would have fax failures…and this just added time to my workday and my workflow…So I needed a reliable solution that ensured that my prescription went through to the pharmacy. [...] This was a really easy workflow integration for me. The only difference here, though, is instead of hitting the fax button, I hit the e-sign and send [using a send button].
