The trusts chief digital and information officer wants to eliminate fax hardware and introduce email as their primary form of communication. To date, Cambridge has overseen the removal of 20 devices and the trust continues to work towards their 2019 target.
Managed Print Services solutions have been implemented across the trust to monitor fax usage and help with the transition. The trust is currently outlining its plans to remove fax machines and migrate to a new solution.
