The primary objective of HIPAA is to safeguard patient health information from any kind of exposure or disclosure to unauthorized parties when the information is required to be transmitted or delivered to authorized individuals. This means that health organizations are required to have infrastructure and procedures in place to ensure this information is secure, as required under HIPAA and Meaningful Use requirements.
The security provisions of HIPAA do not prohibit the faxing of patient information, but do require that "reasonable" efforts be made to ensure information sent via fax is sent securely and is received securely by the person intended. Manual faxing is surrounded by security issues that may prevent health organizations from being compliant with HIPAA requirements.
Zetafax fax server software gives healthcare organizations an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use solution to ensure HIPAA compliant faxing. Zetafax can also assist in meeting Meaningful Use guidelines for the HITECH Act by allowing your EHR to be truly paperless. You can avoid printing, scanning and shredding related to manual faxing.
Instead of being printed on paper, Zetafax server software allows your PC to send and receive faxes. The files are converted into fax format and are ready to be sent via your users' unique fax mailbox. Incoming faxes are received in a digital fax format so that they can be easily routed or archived.
Zetafax also makes it simple for IT administrators to ensure that fax security policies can be administered consistently. The use of fax can be controlled and audited from a single, central location using the Zetafax configuration program. This centralized administrative tool enables administrators to regulate permissions, set up security and manage servers quickly and easily.
