Webinar - Enterprise Fax over IP: Considering the 'Paper Problem' in Healthcare
By Juliana Kenny, TMCnet Managing Editor
The healthcare and medical industry has some of the most dreaded and complicated paper trails and processes out of most industries (legal probably pulling a close second). Issues involving compliance, security, and financial details leave healthcare organizations looking for paperless solutions. Unfortunately, once an organization adopts a paperless solution that does not necessarily mean it’s automatically relieved of compliance issues.
The folks over at OpenText did some research and found out that compliancy fines in the U.S. are at an all-time high for healthcare organizations. These compliancy violations can exceed seven figures, so at stakes that high, organizations need to be aware of the penalties possible and actively work to prevent accruing them.
The risks associated with paper-based communications and processes are not widely known, especially amongst enterprises. Education on these processes is really the only way to ensure that a business will not get booby-trapped into compliance fines and expensive legal proceedings.
A webinar planned for Thursday, April 12 at 2 p.m. ET is designed to shed some light on the best practices for companies that have implemented digital fax solutions and paperless procedures. Titled “A Simple and Compliant Solution to the Paper Problem in Healthcare: Expert Insight and an Example from the Real World,” the webinar intends to discuss security, privacy, and risks.
OpenText will reveal how it integrates its digital faxing solution to achieve HIPAA compliance, improve processes, and dramatically lower costs. Members of healthcare organizations in the compliance and managerial tiers will learn ways to improve productivity and patient care while maintaining the security of data and patient information. Attend the webinar on the 12th to get the whole scoop on what the paperless industry is doing for healthcare.
