Expert Insight and an Example from the Real World

Managing excessive paper-based medical records is not for the faint of heart -- especially when compliance violations can result in fines that well exceed seven figures. Healthcare organizations that employ a virtually “paperless” EMR or EHR solution may believe that they are immune to penalties but that’s simply not the case. Send a fax to the wrong person or leave a fax in whole or part at an unattended fax machine and you could be subject to costly fines. In fact, the number and amount of compliancy fines in the US is at an all-time high.
Join OpenText on April 12th for an educational webinar, where you will hear from security and privacy expert Rebecca Herold, AKA the Privacy Professor, and learn about the risks associated with paper-based communications and processes. During the webcast, attendees will also hear from Chris Patterson, the IT Administrator for Florida Heart and Vascular Associates, and see how they integrated an OpenText digital faxing solution to achieve HIPAA compliance, improve processes, and dramatically lower costs.

- Healthcare Compliance Officers adopting new healthcare compliance initiatives
- Healthcare Professionals wanting to protect and secure patient information
- Healthcare Practice Managers seeking to improve productivity and patient care
- Healthcare Informatics roles searching for ways to improve workflow and streamline business processes
- Healthcare IT Managers looking to drive innovation, integration and migration to greater efficiencies
