etherFAX and DataMotion Partner to Showcase New Fax-to-Direct Solution at HIMSS16
Marlboro, NJ (February 18, 2016) – etherFAX, LLC, and DataMotion today announced a partnership to deliver secure messaging and document delivery solutions for the healthcare ecosystem. The companies have integrated etherFAX with DataMotion™ Direct to allow healthcare professionals to send and receive fax documents and other protected health information (PHI) securely, ensuring privacy and compliance using the Direct Messaging standard. The fax-to-direct service will be demonstrated at HIMSS16.
etherFAX allows secure transmission of unstructured data between fax servers, devices, EMRs, EHRs, and health care information exchanges with end-to-end encryption. Unstructured data such as medical notes, authorizations, PHI and color documents can be transmitted at lightning-fast speeds.
A part of the DataMotion platform, DataMotion Direct allows healthcare providers to send and receive PHI with other Direct address holders to comply with HIPAA, enhance health information exchange, meet meaningful use requirements, and enhance care coordination communications. Based on the national encryption standard for securely exchanging clinical healthcare data via the Internet, DataMotion fax-to-direct services enable secure messaging for healthcare providers, patients, business associates and clinical systems.
The integrated solution expands the connected reach of Direct Messaging to the universe of providers reliant on fax technology for exchanging patient information with other care providers and facilities.
“We are excited about the integration of DataMotion Direct with the etherFAX network,” said Paul Banco, CEO of etherFAX. “The partnership will allow healthcare professionals to securely and efficiently deliver messaging and document delivery solutions while complying with HIPAA.”
“Fax remains a mainstay technology in clinical healthcare – partly as a holdover from the era of paper-based medical records, and partly due to HIPAA regulations preventing unsecure electronic communications like email,” stated the CTO of DataMotion, Bob Janacek. “Direct messaging overcomes HIPAA risks and other interoperability issues that have held back electronic communications in healthcare. Its adoption has accelerated with over 40 million Direct messages sent in 2015. Integrating Direct messaging with fax will increase the adoption of Direct and we expect to see more integration into clinical workflows and EHRs as a result.”
Through its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model, etherFAX and etherFAX SEN leverage a virtually unlimited array of virtual ports to send and receive high volumes of fax transmissions via the Internet, eliminating the need for costly telephony infrastructure. The ability to integrate with all leading fax servers, fax-enabled applications, multi-function devices and fax machines allows for fast and easy configuration.
The integration between etherFAX and DataMotion Direct will be showcased at the upcoming HIMSS16 at booth #12247 (etherFAX) and booth #12144 (DataMotion). An initial release is scheduled for Q2 2016. To learn more, visit: http://www.datamotionhealth.com
