Frequently Asked Questions

Faxing is universal, ubiquitous, and easy to use. But increasingly, there are challenges seen with legacy paper fax, their related workflows, and costs. The industry has long been moving to replace the paper fax with more secure and HIPAA-compliant technology and there are two technologies at the forefront. They are: The fax server, which requires on-premise hardware and software; and digital cloud fax technology (DCFT), a reliable and scalable technology that runs entirely on the cloud and requires no additional hardware or software.

In addition to the extra hardware, fax software, and telecommunications services, on-premise fax servers also require on-site installation, training, and ongoing maintenance. These items are costly as they involve IT personnel for administration and maintenance. Other expenses also include monthly telco charges for phone lines, phone numbers, and PBX ports.

Because of these expenses, on-prem fax server solutions are cost-prohibitive for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and for even mid to large-sized corporations.

Fax servers are also less than reliable. The costs of downtime to a business can be incredibly high – and for some industries like healthcare and financial services – are completely untenable.

Cloud Fax delivers encrypted communications and password-protected documents. You can get a complete audit trail of all activity and optional features such as fax tagging, annotations and digital signatures.

Experience better than 99.5% uptime fast delivery and receipt rates, with is ideal for time-sensitive information with high completion rates and reliability.

The HITRUST CSF certification utilizes a well-developed and well-recognized framework that incorporates nationally and internationally accepted standards, including ISO, NIST, PCI, HITECH and HIPAA.

Obtaining certification is a rigorous process that involves multiple stages of self-assessment, third-party assessment, and HITRUST-performed quality assurance reviews.

By obtaining the HITRUST CSF certification, organizations are following a framework that is constantly evolving and upgrading to reflect the latest changes in the industry. With the HITRUST CSF certification, vendors and covered entities have documented assurances that a product or organization is adhering to the most stringent standards in healthcare security and compliance for exchanging electronic medical data.
