Free Medical Faxing of Patient Referrals


The drchrono platform now offers free outbound referral faxing to all customers! You can now include complete clinical notes, scanned and uploaded documents, and high resolution imagery in referrals without losing precious detail when sending over a low-quality (low DPI) fax line. To send a referral through the drchrono EHR:

Free Medical Faxing of Patient Records

  1. Select “Send Referral” under the “Patients” menu
  2. Find your patient you wish to refer and click their name
  3. Select the recipient in the upper right corner; you can add new contacts if you have not already done so
  4. Type any specific instructions you wish to include
  5. Select which full clinical notes and documents to include
  6. Click Send!

The referred practitioner will receive a 1 page fax with simple instructions on how to retrieve the digital referral file.

The downloaded referral is not downsampled or converted to greyscale. Your free draw images, radiology images, clinical notes, etc will be in their original color and resolution. Best of all, you and the referred doctor save money by avoiding paying faxing fees for referral documents that can number in the hundreds of pages. Most practices now scan incoming faxes, so you save the referred doctor time and money, too.

  1. Is this the only way to fax referrals now? When I tried it, it wanted me to open an account to verify who I was. I really don’t see the other doctors we refer to wanting to open yet another account just to get faxes from us. Can we still fax referrals the old way?

    • Hi Samantha,

      You can enable the full-price faxes under your account settings. Go to Account > Settings, then select the “General” tab. There are a lot of options (we’re very configurable!), but the option you want is located under the “Communication” section.

      It will still include the cover page — records you are referring out can still be downloaded in full color / full quality PDF — but the rest of the referral record will be included in the original fax, too.

      Have a great week!

      • Thanks, but will it still include all the extra items like the ad for drchrono? The former fax was very professional and easy to send. I did as you suggested so I play with it.

    • Hi Samantha, we have an update being released tonight to remove the images when sending non-free faxes. Any referrals sent after today should not have them. Have a great day!
