A RightFax fax server builds on Allscripts EHR’s flexible, modular design to help give providers the exact information they need, when and where and how they need it. In light of stringent HIPAA fax compliance and Meaningful Use criteria, secure and reliable healthcare document management has never been more critical—and the RightFax-Allscripts combination has never been more necessary.

Allscripts is firmly established as a premier EHR vendor. Its Emergency Department platform, for example, has received some of the highest KLAS ratings of anything in its category. Likewise, no fax server solution has seen greater popularity among healthcare providers than OpenText RightFax, the most widely implemented and acclaimed fax server available. It’s only fitting that Allscripts chose OpenText for native integration with its EHR products, to give customers all the benefits of two best-of-breed applications.

Why Allscripts Inbound / Outbound Fax Integration?

Like many healthcare organizations, yours will likely see cost and compliance improvements after an Allscripts-RightFax integration. For example, all customers gain:

  • Completely customized Allscripts inbound fax routing to any local or network destination, including email
  • 100% secure outbound faxing from Allscripts, complete with a full audit trail for every faxed document
  • Freedom to make prescription, referral, and other faxes as automatic or manual as desired
  • Compatibility and/or full native integration with all workplace software

Advanced Fax Features in TouchWorks & Input Manager

Allscripts has invested heavily in smart fax features that streamline information management. With an appropriate faxing platform in place, users can eliminate hours of manual manipulation every day.

For instance, the HealthMatics Input Manager module and TouchWorks EHR offer some of the most sophisticated fax handling on the market. Features include:

  • Automatic document indexing
  • Fax image splitting and rotating
  • Patient record routing

…all without printing or scanning a single sheet of paper.

An enterprise-grade fax server like RightFax complements TouchWorks’s and Input Manager’s fax tools, adding reliability and security behind the scenes to deliver complete and reliable documents to cutting-edge EHR interfaces. Simply put, RightFax is the key to unlocking full, enterprise-scale utility and value from these innovative features.

Legacy McKesson Fax Integrations

Following its acquisition of a large part of McKesson’s business in 2017, Allscripts has opened the door even further for reliable, efficient fax server integrations. Like the entire Allscripts suite, any legacy McKesson application is a prime candidate for RightFax deployment.

Below, note the simple and intuitive interfaces for transmitting essential documents (purchase orders, in this case).
