Retarus, a leading provider of cloud fax and communications solutions, is now integrated with Epic – making it even easier for healthcare providers to send secure, confidential, HIPAA-compliant communications.
As healthcare enterprises adopt new technologies that support digital transformation, protecting patient data is a top concern. This is the reason why healthcare industry relies heavily on faxing and continues to use cloud fax for improving reliability, availability, and efficiency of fax communications.
Retarus Faxolution with Epic integration takes this one step further, seamlessly integrating patient electronic medical records (EMR) with a highly reliable global fax network. This allows healthcare providers to securely transmit confidential information using a streamlined process that automates, verifies, and records data while improving regulatory compliance.
What is Epic?
The move to digitize patient health records is based on the benefits of digital records over paper-based systems, providing more complete, updated, and accurate records to coordinate patient care. Epic is the preferred system to digitize patient health records, used by nearly one-third of all healthcare providers and 58% of 500-bed or larger organizations.
