RightFax integrates with Epic EMR software to help healthcare providers meet strict compliance standards and control mounting operational costs. More than ever before, speedy and safe sharing of PHI and other sensitive information is integral to the success of patient-centric healthcare organizations. Consequently, providers who implement new and creative solutions to the problem of confidential document transmission will be more profitable and effective in the coming years.
Imagine the possibilities when industry-leading Epic Systems Ambulatory and Inpatient EMR meets secure, efficient fax server technology. This market-leading server/hosted fax solution facilitates inbound and outbound fax integration with Epic EMR software and customized CareConnect deployments. An integrated faxing solution helps ensure HIPAA-compliant faxing while minimizing its costs, and makes it easier than ever to:
- Effortless, instant faxing from the Epic Hyperspace client
- Fax prescriptions from Order Entry
- Fax referral or thank-you letters to physicians
- Fax lab results
- Fax health information, such as legal medical records
RightFax Optimizes Epic Inbound / Outbound Faxing
Epic EMR fax server integration eliminates steps in the faxing process, reduces your organizations’ exposure to risk, and makes faxing quick and easy. This fax solution offers secure “point-to-point” communications with encrypted delivery options that ensure each document’s integrity. Epic Ambulatory and Inpatient EMR users can expect to enjoy benefits such as:
- Manage Epic inbound fax delivery to e-mail, web-client, or a network folder
- Get fax transmission notifications via e-mail, web-client, or printing
- Leverage use of already existing multi-function printers (MFPs)
- Build a complete audit trail
Remote and online outbound faxing from Epic is as easy as clicking “Print.” With a couple quick keystrokes, the user can promptly and securely fax confidential information to providers, insurers, pharmacies, and other parties.
API-Based Epic Integration With RightFax
Any application that can print can also transmit through RightFax. Compared to paper-based manual faxing, that’s a big step forward.
But modern provider orgs need extensive workflow integration and fine-tuned automation. That’s why OpenText offers several RightFax APIs and integration toolkits.
The most streamlined and flexible option is the Web API. It provides a RESTful architecture that minimizes development time and maximizes platform compatibility.
Additional APIs and native integration tools offer a myriad of other possibilities, too. There is a way—often several ways—to incorporate RightFax into any conceivable workflow, so your Paperless Productivity® consultant will help you identify the optimal one.
Faxing From Epic Print Server (EPS)
We often advise clients that if their application can print, then it can fax, too. So, for the many organizations that have invested in Epic Print Server, what better way to get value out of this notoriously complex feature than by using it to help eliminate paper faxing in the first place?
Removing the need for paper faxing gets rid of much printing in the first place, which in turn allows for simpler EPS configurations. Additionally, faxing directly becomes as transparent and friendly to Epic Hyperspace users as the print process to which they’re accustomed—but without all the waste and headaches!
Epic Radiant Fax Integration
Epic’s Radiant has proven itself as a world-class RIS for large providers with complex workflows. However, despite its tight integration with Epic’s core EMR, Radiant does not offer an equally seamless RIS fax experience. Fax is essential even in processes around digital imaging, but too often the “solution” is an under-engineered online fax service or even a fleet of costly fax machines and MFDs.
As Radiant customers realize the cost and headache of those alternatives, many turn to RightFax for its robust, secure, and scalable fax services. With proper implementation, RightFax gives fax users a smooth, speedy experience that matches the high standard of their Radiant + Epic deployment.
Fax Server For Epic Beaker LIS
Beaker, Epic’s well regarded lab module, is a critical tool for patient care. What’s more, it’s usually a hub of inbound and outbound fax activity.
Its tight integration with the core Epic system does provide some fax capabilities. But modern, streamlined workflows—like fax automation and comprehensive audit trails—demand a fax server integration between Beaker and RightFax.
Not only does RightFax directly benefit LIS users and administrators, but it natively links lab faxes with all other “nodes” in the enterprise fax environment.
Importing Documents Into Epic Without Paper
Epic users frequently import not just faxes, but a host of other documents into their EHR.
This is even more prevalent for joint Epic-OnBase customers. Thanks to their tight integration, Epic easily feeds docs into and pulls them from OnBase ECM.
But making these documents available in the first place too often requires printing and scanning—even when the document is from a digital source.
Epic’s Express Scan utility eliminates this unnecessary printing and scanning.
The Express Scan utility lets users print to the Epic Express Scan printer or to the Highland Software Virtual Printer. Then, it delivers the document almost instantly, and totally paper-free, to Epic or OnBase.
Virtually everyone is familiar with the usual File > Print process, so adoption is quick and involves minimal guidance.
