Integrated network fax and electronic medical record solutions deliver exceptional document management


Raleigh, N.C. – GFI Software, an international leader and developer of network security, content security and messaging software, and Misys Healthcare Systems, a market leader in healthcare IT, have joined together to offer healthcare organizations an easier system to meet the broad range of documentation needs of medical practices. The integration of GFI’s fax solution, GFI FAXmaker, with Misys Healthcare Systems’ Electronic Medical Record Solution, Misys EMR®, enables healthcare providers to automate their faxing and medical records in one easy to manage system.

GFI FAXmaker integrates with any e-mail server and allows employees to send, receive, view, print and save faxes from any PC or laptop without having to print a copy or visit the fax machine, which improves document management for compliance with government regulations and employee productivity.

Misys EMR is a flexible, content-rich electronic medical records solution that expedites record keeping processes and enables physicians to retrieve and input patient data anywhere, anytime, from a PC or wireless, handheld tablet. The modularly designed product provides a point-of-care solution for physicians in the examination room as well as electronic capabilities for routine tasks related to clinical care, such as transcription, imaging, orders management, messaging and prescription writing.

“Misys chose GFI FAXmaker because of its overall ease of installation and configuration, its ability to support multiple cover pages, and its easy integration with Active Directory,” said Michelle Jones, Product Manager for Misys Healthcare Systems. “Our clients have found GFI FAXmaker to be flexible to their document creation needs as well as scalable to meet organizational needs of large healthcare facilities.”

“With GFI FAXmaker, healthcare institutions can keep fax communications in an electronic format, that allows a better, more efficient method to organize important healthcare records,” said David Vella, Product Manager for GFI. “Instead of handling loose paper faxes, which inevitably have to be turned into electronic records, GFI FAXmaker eases this process.”
