Network Faxing and HIPAA: Security and Privacy in the Health Care Industry
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) prescribes new health care industry rules and recommendations for the handling and transmission of patient health information.
The decision to move to computer-based, network faxing is a logical one. HIPAA's privacy and security rules regarding patient health data integrity, confidentiality, and accessibility include recommendations for access to and use of fax machines. Standalone fax machines become arguably the weakest link in the communications chain, especially considering the thousands of documents most health care organizations typically fax in a month.
FaxPress fax servers send and receive fax jobs less expensively, and with more security and accuracy than any standalone fax machine. Sending a fax with a Castelle FaxPress fax server offers a degree of privacy and security unavailable with standalone fax machines, and takes less than one tenth of the time sending a fax manually does. FaxPress users can be added at any time at no additional expense due to Castelle's server-based rather than per-user based licensing, which allows an unlimited number of users.
