RightFax provides Epic EMR users with cost-effective means to illustrate meaningful use. With the advent of the Affordable Care Act and HITECH Act, healthcare organizations are subject to growing compliance regulations and, in turn, rising operational costs as organization seek to meet compliance mandates. The protection and security of patient health information (PHI) is an integral part of healthcare compliance demands and as such, healthcare organizations must identify safe and secure document distribution methods for PHI.
RightFax integrates with Epic EMR to create a rock-solid solution that optimizes Epic (and Epic-based CareConnect EMRs) while expanding its fax capabilities. RightFax-Epic integration provides organizations with a secure and HIPAA compliant document distribution system that enhances employee productivity and reduces operational costs.
RightFax-Epic EMR Capabilities
RightFax, the market leading fax server technology solution, natively integrates with Epic EMR and extends its feature-rich capability to Epic users. By integrating these two systems, Epic users can continue to fax via multifunction printers or fax directly out of Epic, allowing users to:
- Fax physician notes and physician referrals directly from Epic
- Fax prescriptions directly from order entry within Epic
- Fax lab results from Epic
- Fax patient health information from Epic
RightFax-Epic integrations offer a streamlined faxing process that drastically reduces the time that employees spend faxing, thereby increasing productivity. When RightFax integrates with Epic, faxing is as easy as printing from the Epic application.
CareConnect Faxing & EpicCare Fax Integration
RightFax sends and receives faxes digitally, eliminating many of the costs associated with traditional faxing (paper and toner) and protecting PHI much more than paper-based, traditional faxing. This applies in equal measure to both off-the-shelf Epic deployments as well as customized CareConnect environments.
If your organization has or is preparing for CareConnect, RightFax is the key to cost-effective HIPAA compliance in faxing. Its certified delivery options limiting your organizations exposure to risk while reducing operational costs. RightFax-Epic users can securely send and receive faxes through EpicCare Ambulatory and Inpatient EMR software and can expect to enjoy multiple benefits, including:
- Inbound delivery of faxes to email, web-client, or network folder
- Certified delivery options
- Automated notifications of fax receipt
- Ability to leverage existing MFP (multi-function printer) infrastructure
- Support of compliance efforts through establishment of permissions, restricting access to PHI to unauthorized viewers
- Complete audit trail of sent and received faxes
- Reduced costs due to elimination of paper, toners and fax machine maintenance
RightFax integration with Epic provides a point-to-point document distribution solution for healthcare organizations to develop a strategic advantage in the face of mounting compliance demands and mounting costs within healthcare. RightFax combines the security of fax with certified delivery options to provide healthcare organizations with a cost-effective solution to demonstrate meaningful use, improve employee efficiency and effectively improve patient care.
And these same benefits apply to virtually all leading EMR / EHR applications. If your organization currently uses systems besides Epic, then explore our general fax and OCR solutions for healthcare, in addition to specific integrations with NextGen, McKesson, Cerner, and many others.
