RightFax for HealthcareWith the most flexible integrations, RightFax not only works with all of the top EMR and practice management software, but it can also help streamline healthcare workflows to increase productivity.
RightFax integrates with many EMR systems including:
RightFax and EMRs/EHRs
OpenText RightFax, the market-leading network fax software has a long-standing history as the fax server of choice for a variety of healthcare information systems (HIS). These systems allow healthcare professionals to share PHI–both electronic and paper-based records.
For paper-based records yet to be digitized, RightFax supports faxing from multi-function printers (MFPs). For electronic records, many organizations fax directly from their EMR or EHR, eliminating the need to print records while keeping a complete audit trail of sent information. The types of faxing that might be done from within EMR/EHR systems include:
- Sharing PHI for patient care coordination
- Health Information Management, such as legal medical records
- Sending prescriptions
- Referral or thank you letters to physicians
- Result notifications
- Transcriptions, including letters
EMR / EHR Integration
All you need is a properly configured RightFax server and to set up your EMR/EHR for faxing. Several market-leading EMR/EHR systems already know how to use RightFax to send faxes. RightFax can also be configured to securely route received faxes containing PHI to specific departments/individuals in digital form, protecting PHI better than traditional fax machines and eliminating the need for paper.
If documents are showing up at a fax machine in a public area—a busy nursing station, for example—they are vulnerable to being seen or even stolen by unintended recipients. Patient information is protected by law and strict regulations like HIPAA and HITECH govern how healthcare institutions must handle and store them. Also, failure to produce a requested document can result in crippling fines and a loss of patient confidence.
OpenText fax and document distribution solutions can help address the challenge of delivering medical records and other documents by providing the tools to electronically send and receive documents from the desktop and by automating delivery of medical records and documents from a variety of clinical and back-office applications, intuitively organizing them for quick retrieval and archiving.
This provides healthcare organizations with the flexibility to securely distribute virtually any document from any application, using a centralized fax and document delivery solution.
Lowering the Risk of Healthcare Data Breaches
Most healthcare organizations comprehend the importance of Protected Health Information (PHI) and strive to never purposely place patient information at risk. However, with many healthcare providers facing time constraints tied directly to required billable hour and healthcare services, there is little time for them to be IT or legal expert. The resulting fines from a HIPAA violation or data breach can carry the power to incapacitate an entire organizations with long-lasting consequences.
With the recent rise of cybersecurity attacks, healthcare organizations know the importance of preparing for data breaches related to PHI. This means not just preparing for HIPAA compliance but developing strategies to avoid the costly disruptions and damages that can be caused by breaches.
The risk also doesn’t stop at the practice. If you are an IT service provider with at least one healthcare customer with PHI or managing patient data as a Business Associate that makes you just as culpable for non-compliance penalties.
OpenText RightFax is the marketing-leading enterprise fax server solution with a long-standing history of being the preferred choice for thousands of healthcare organizations with a variety of healthcare information systems (HIS).
