The demand for mobile communication platforms and telehealth soared as a result of the pandemic.
Virtual appointments allowed doctors to safely evaluate patients in the comfort of their own homes while secure messaging streamlined care coordination, scheduling, and administrative tasks.
etherFAX knows just how important it is for doctors, nurses, and medical staff to stay connected and securely share, access, and analyze data among the healthcare ecosystem. To accelerate communications and improve patient care coordination, etherFAX’s DirectFax™ Messenger seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Teams.
Leveraging hybrid-cloud fax technology, DirectFax allows healthcare professionals to securely send, receive, and view protected health information (PHI), business documents, and faxes directly in Microsoft Teams.
Through etherFAX’s DirectFax integration, Microsoft Teams users can leverage the etherFAX Secure Exchange Network (SEN), a patented Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution, to transport business-critical information without having to change a single workflow. As a cloud-based solution, etherFAX does not require a fax server or additional software.
DirectFax can be installed for each Teams user one-on-one or can be installed in an existing
channel. The DirectFax Teams integration also allows for incoming documents to be routed
to specific Teams Channels, therefore allowing for an automated digital workflow so the
right team receives the right information.
etherFAX’s DirectFax integration with Teams allows users to receive searchable and archivable PDFs directly to their Teams channel, and ensures that time-sensitive documents and medical records are delivered with ultra-fast transmission speeds and guaranteed delivery.
Superior Color and Clarity
Digital, high-resolution, and rich color documents can be transmitted from Microsoft Teams to other third-party applications within the etherFAX ecosystem, iOS and Android devices, as well as traditional fax machines.
With the ability to exchange test results, X-rays, and CT scans with superior color and clarity via Microsoft Teams, doctors can provide accurate medical diagnoses and test results faster than ever before.
Protect Patient Data
To ensure that PHI is safeguarded, etherFAX’s cloud-based data exchange solutions are SOC 2 compliant, HIPAA compliant, PCI DSS certified, and HITRUST CSF certified.
etherFAX has also implemented multiple defense-in-depth strategies into its patented etherFAX technology including two-factor authentication and end-to-end encryption to guarantee that patient data and business-critical information remain protected while in transit and at rest.
By leveraging the security of fax technology with the scalability of the cloud, healthcare organizations can improve patient care and accelerate communications without compromising security or privacy.
