Please note: system requirements have not changed drastically, but you may need to upgrade some older software for compatibility. Consult this page for a comprehensive guide, or feel to reach out directly.
Fax Data Extraction with Intelligent Workflows
The perennial challenge with inbound faxing is digitizing—let alone automating—what comes next. There’s still a bottleneck (and source of errors) as long as a human needs to read and process a fax’s information.
We’ve generally solved this with third-party OCR software, and in many scenarios, that’s still the best approach. But as of RightFax 21.2, zonal OCR is built into the fax server software itself. That means automatically capturing, extracting, and acting upon key document fields…without additional software to integrate.
As its name suggests, Intelligent Workflows integrates with the existing RightFax Workflows automation tools. Users can also apply zonal OCR to older faxes to facilitate indexing and searching.
New Native Connector for Allscripts EHR
We’ve integrated Allscripts with RightFax for many years using a few different techniques. Now, with 21.2, RightFax has released a native connector for this widely deployed EHR.
It retains the streamlined sending and inbound routing that RightFax users expect. But as a native integration, users can also track fax statuses within Allscripts, view faxes associated with individual patients, and even fax directly from a patient record.
API & Security Enhancements
RightFax 21.2 expedites custom development with a new SDK and extensive code samples for the REST API, and also brings back the COM API.
On the security side, it introduces NIST-ready audit features and adds OAuth and Azure AD to its list of supported identity and security providers.
