Sfax Electronic Fax Record Streamlines the Transition to EMRs

February 4, 2008 – SecureCare Technologies recently launched its Digital Signature and annotation features for Sfax, an electronic fax record, which can serve as a first step in electronic medical record (EMR) implementation.

With the addition of the Digital Signature and annotation features, Sfax now operates as a paperless, Internet-based fax management system for healthcare providers and serves as a seamless transitioning agent to EMR platforms, the company says. With Sfax, there will be no need for users to scan every manual fax into their EMR systems as documentation will already be electronic.

Sfax can save up to 95 percent of the time and up to 80 percent of the cost of manual faxing, the maker says. As more providers consider the move to EMRs, Sfax will speed the adoption rate as a majority of that record will already be in an electronic format.

The Digital Signature feature provides every user with a digital certificate, allowing a provider to digitally sign each fax from a secure, HIPAA-ready platform. This feature saves healthcare providers significant amounts of time that would be spent scanning and printing faxes in order to physically sign them. Special annotation features allow users to edit faxed documents with tools such as check marks and text boxes without ever printing a single page.
