eWeek: Cloud Faxing Lives on in Healthcare with FAXCOM Anywhere
eWeek just released a great article describing one of the major trends in faxing today – the move to the cloud. Many folks remember the stand-alone fax machine of the 80s and 90s, thinking fax is an old or aging technology.
The truth is today’s fax is not only ubiquitous as its always been, but mission critical in many segments, especially healthcare. Today’s fax technology is mostly software which is completely interoperable with ERP, network, email, and health IT systems. One of the key developments is the movement of fax from on-premises servers to the cloud through SAAS technology and of hybrid server/cloud fax systems with built in business continuity and redundancy.
In the article, Brian Horowitz does a great job describing how the “new fax” is key to healthcare applications for Barnes Healthcare, a durable medical equipment and pharmacy company in Georgia. For them, outsourcing fax to the cloud relieves them of the burden of telecommunications management and allows them to receive signed documents for legal prescriptions.
Fax is productive, ubiquitous, and just works like it always has. Biscom has thousands of healthcare customers like Barnes Healthcare where we help them serve their patients day in and day out. I hope you enjoy the article.
