etherFAX and Secure Exchange Solutions Announce Partnership to Extend Fax to The Direct Project
Marlboro, NJ (July 14, 2015) – etherFAX, LLC, today announced a partnership with Secure Exchange Solutions, an industry leading health information service provider, extending fax capabilities to The Direct Project in a “Direct to fax; fax to Direct” environment.
A leader in Direct secure messaging, Secure Exchange supports scalable, standards-based methods for participants to send authenticated, encrypted health information. etherFAX’s partnership with Secure Exchange bridges the gap between Direct messaging and fax, and expands the footprint of the etherFAX network to include the hundreds of thousands of Direct-enabled hospitals and physicians nationwide.
etherFAX is extending its robust network to even larger proportions with the addition of the etherFAX Secure Exchange Network (SEN), built on the company’s commitment to creating the world’s largest and most secure ecosystem in the healthcare industry. All current fax servers and applications that support etherFAX will now be Direct-enabled.
The Secure Exchange footprint includes over 60 vendor partners and thousands of hospital, health systems, health information exchange and health plan customers. In addition, Secure Exchange has established connectivity with nearly all Electronic Health Records (EHRs). This broad connectivity coupled with leading directory services makes it easy not only for providers to communicate seamlessly, but also to identify the Direct addresses of other trusted entities.
Leveraging the cloud, etherFAX SEN utilizes military-grade security technology to 100 percent guarantee the secure transmission of all healthcare-critical documents and encrypted health information.
“Our partnership with Secure Exchange Solutions will finally create the ‘Direct to fax; fax to Direct’ environment that the healthcare industry needs,” said Paul Banco, CEO of etherFAX. “The combination of etherFAX and Secure Exchange furthers our commitment to creating the world’s largest and most secure ecosystem for the healthcare industry.”
“etherFAX is leading the way in combining the popular fax-based workflows in the healthcare industry with the powerful Direct standard for exchanging healthcare information that can handle all data formats, from structured CCDs to PDFs and beyond. etherFAX is doing a great service to their customers by enabling Direct, giving them the ability to use a familiar workflow and still get information in the format that is most useful to them,” said Dan Kazzaz, CEO of Secure Exchange Solutions.
