Sometimes, Paper

The fax machine is getting long in the tooth, but it's a technology that people understand and it's a still a reasonable way to transmit a facsimile copy of a printed page. In the medical world, that can mean old patient charts or a doctor's scribble on something. Until paper is completely eliminated, fax machines will still be useful.
