Understanding HIPAA and Document Security with RightFax

Jan 15, 2018 | White Paper

Most healthcare organizations comprehend the importance of Protected Health Information (PHI) and strive to never purposely place patient information at risk. However, with many healthcare providers facing time constraints tied directly to required billable hour and healthcare services, there is little time for them to be IT or legal expert. The resulting fines from a HIPAA violation or data breach can carry the power to incapacitate an entire organizations with long-lasting consequences.

Lowering the risk of Healthcare Data Breaches
With the recent rise of cybersecurity attacks, healthcare organizations know the importance of preparing for data breaches related to PHI. This means not just preparing for HIPAA compliance but developing strategies to avoid the costly disruptions and damages that can be caused by breaches.

The risk also doesn’t stop at the practice. If you are an IT service provider with at least one healthcare customer with PHI or managing patient data as a Business Associate that makes you just as culpable for non-compliance penalties.

OpenText RightFax is the marketing-leading enterprise fax server solution with a long-standing history of being the preferred choice for thousands of healthcare organizations with a variety of healthcare information systems (HIS).

Using RightFax, these systems allow healthcare professionals to secure the sharing of PHI–both electronic and paper-based records and setup faxing directly from their EMR or EHR–eliminating the need to print records while keeping a complete audit trail of sent information. For existing paper-based records yet to be digitized, RightFax supports faxing from most major Multi-Function Printers (MFPs).
