It may be the Digital Age, but your healthcare organization probably relies on one “old-school” workplace technology: the fax machine. For hospitals across
the country, the fax remains a vitally important tool for communication and collaboration. You count on it as you deliver patient care and tackle administrative
tasks—from sending and receiving lab reports to sharing claims information and admittance records.
But yesterday’s fax isn’t fit for today’s challenges.
For starters, traditional fax machines often have dedicated phone lines and consumables that drive up your overhead costs. They usually require your staff to
physically load and transmit files. They aren’t easy to integrate with Electronic Medical Record (EMR), Electronic Health Record (EHR) and other healthcare
IT systems. Plus there’s the opportunity for human error—and a lack of security and auditing features likely to create challenges in addressing the HIPAA final
omnibus rule. In fact, in a survey, 44% of healthcare respondents admit they’ve read a paper fax intended for someone else.1
Wrong numbers. Unattended documents. Misplaced hard-copy files. Old-school faxes can fall into the wrong hands—creating security and privacy risks.
