How to Replace Fax Machines without Disrupting Patient Care

The Challenge

The purchase of Fax machines has now been banned across the NHS. The NHS must now find a replacement form of communication that is modern, secure, reliable, cost effective and an easy means of communication that will avoid any disruption to patient care.

The Solution

For NHS Trusts looking to move away from the expense and hassle of using and maintaining traditional fax machines, there is a widely used, cost effective and often overlooked solution – Electronic Fax.

OpenText RightFax provides proven and reliable electronic fax and document delivery capabilities, giving healthcare organisations an easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy and affordable way to support the Health Secretary directive, whilst maintaining compliance, streamlining business processes and reducing administrative costs.

How does it work?

Electronic documents can be ‘faxed’ directly from almost any desktop application or back-office process. Full email client/server integration allows for sending and receiving faxes directly within all popular email software solutions. Inbound faxes can be delivered to the recipient’s inbox or directly into a workflow and hard copies can be faxed from any Multifunctional device, without the need for a telephone connection. We can install the right solution for your needs, whether that be an on-premise fax server, a hosted server, a cloud based solution or a managed service.
