OpenEMR and etherFAX Accelerate Healthcare Communications with Secure Document Exchange Solutions
HOLMDEL, N.J., April 12, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- etherFAX today announced its partnership with OpenEMR, a leading open-source electronic health records and medical practice management solution. OpenEMR connects directly with etherFAX to enable healthcare organizations to exchange protected health information (PHI) with end-to-end encryption, ultra-fast transmission speeds, and guaranteed delivery.
As part of the integration, OpenEMR users will now have an etherFAX module that acts as an inbox-style repository for received faxes. The OpenEMR etherFAX module enables users to easily view their documents, send a document as an attachment to other providers and clinicians, and forward a document as a Direct Secure Message, email, or fax. The integration creates an on-ramp to interoperability by allowing users to add the received document directly to a patient's chart, and even create a new patient based on data extracted from the document. Together, etherFAX and OpenEMR are accelerating healthcare communications and enabling organizations to improve care coordination.
"One of the many benefits of replacing fax with etherFAX is the ability to integrate with multiple applications via our APIs," said Paul Banco, CEO and co-founder of etherFAX. "We're proud to launch our new integration with OpenEMR and make it easier than ever for healthcare organizations to exchange PHI fast and securely."
OpenEMR users can leverage the etherFAX Secure Exchange Network (SEN) to securely transport critical healthcare and business information without having to change a single workflow. etherFAX's DirectFax solution via its Secure Exchange Network (SEN) enables OpenEMR users to send and receive high-resolution, full-color documents directly to applications and devices within seconds. To help patients and healthcare providers decide on the best care and treatment options, etherFAX DirectFax delivers rich content documents with near-diagnostic image quality.
With etherFAX's WEAVE™ solution suite, powerful data extraction transforms unstructured documents, such as PDFs, faxes, and paper-based forms, into structured, searchable data that can be easily integrated into applications, therefore reducing manual data entry and improving data quality.
etherFAX's secure, cloud-based, and encrypted data exchange solutions operate in a HIPAA and SOC 2® compliant environment that is both HITRUST CSF® and PCI DSS certified. As a cloud-based solution, etherFAX does not require a fax server or additional software.
