HIPAA Compliance and Faxing in Healthcare: Ensuring Secure Communication with Cloud-Based Fax Services

In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, maintaining the highest standards of patient data security is paramount. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets rigorous standards for safeguarding sensitive patient information. One critical aspect of HIPAA compliance in healthcare is secure communication, and this is where cloud-based fax services play a pivotal role.

Cloud-Based Fax Services for Healthcare

Healthcare institutions, from small clinics to large hospitals, rely on secure and efficient communication methods to transmit patient records, prescriptions, lab results, and more. Traditional fax machines, once the norm, are increasingly being replaced by online faxing solutions, and for good reason.

The Advantages of Cloud-Based Fax Services

  1. Secure Document Transmission: Cloud-based fax services employ advanced encryption and security protocols to ensure that patient data remains confidential during transmission. This is especially crucial in a world where data breaches are a constant concern.
  2. HIPAA-Compliant Fax Services: HIPAA compliance is non-negotiable in healthcare. Reputable cloud-based fax providers offer HIPAA-compliant fax services that meet the strict requirements for protecting patient information. This includes encryption, access controls, and secure storage of faxed documents.
  3. Efficiency and Convenience: Internet fax services streamline the faxing process. Healthcare professionals can send and receive faxes directly from their computers or mobile devices, reducing the need for physical paperwork and manual faxing.

Why Cloud-Based Faxing Matters in Healthcare

Imagine a scenario where a physician needs to quickly share a patient’s medical history with a specialist across town. With cloud-based fax services, this can be done securely and efficiently. The secure online faxing solutions allow for immediate transmission, saving valuable time in critical situations.

Choosing the Right Cloud-Based Fax Service for Healthcare

When considering cloud-based fax services for healthcare, it’s essential to evaluate providers carefully. Look for services that offer:

  • Robust encryption and security measures.
  • Compliance with HIPAA regulations.
  • Secure and user-friendly interfaces.
  • Reliable customer support to address any concerns promptly.


In the healthcare industry, protecting patient information isn’t just a best practice; it’s a legal requirement. Cloud-based fax services offer a HIPAA-compliant solution for secure document transmission, enhancing the efficiency and security of healthcare communication.

As healthcare providers navigate the complex terrain of patient data management, embracing cloud-based fax services is a crucial step toward achieving HIPAA compliance and ensuring the privacy and security of patient information.

Are you ready to enhance your healthcare organization’s communication while maintaining HIPAA compliance? Explore the benefits of cloud-based fax services and experience secure, efficient, and convenient communication in the digital age.

Epson Introduces SureColor P5370 17-Inch Professional Photographic Printer

Replacing Iconic SureColor P5000, New Printer Delivers Creativity Without CompromiseOctober 12, 2023 PrintersProfessional Imaging

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. – Oct. 12, 2023 – Empowering photographers to produce the finest exhibition quality prints, Epson today introduced the new 17-inch SureColor® P5370 professional printer designed to meet the demanding needs of professional and production photographic markets. Incorporating technological breakthroughs and enhanced reliability to produce prints as the artist intended, the new printer has an improved printhead, new ink set with an extended color gamut in dark blue hues, plus an advanced print engine for productivity, including sheet and roll capability. The SureColor P5370 is being debuted and shown at the Palm Springs Photo Festival.

Vincent Versace, a recognized pioneer in the art and science of digital photography noted, “When I have a large volume of prints to make and time and reliability is of the essence, the SureColor P5370 is my go-to printer for meeting deadlines while maintaining the highest photographic print quality.”

Touting a refined design, the SureColor P5370 combines an improved advanced MicroPiezo® AMC™ printhead with Epson Precision Dot Screening Technology to consistently produce prints with smooth tonal renditions and capability to reproduce the details captured with today’s high-resolution cameras. Featuring a new 10-color UltraChrome® PRO10 ink set in high-capacity 200 mL cartridges, including Violet Ink, the printer delivers an extended range of blue hues and a wider color gamut.1 With dedicated channels for Photo and Matte Black inks, there’s no ink switching, helping to save time and reduce ink waste. The printer’s built-in Carbon Black Mode increases Dmax, allowing for rich blacks and exceptional contrast on glossy paper.

Offering flexibility and increased productivity, the printer includes a built-in roll feeder, auto cutter and a high-capacity cassette that accommodates up to 100 cut sheets from 8.5” x 11” to 17” x 22”. In addition, to further support today’s workflows that leverage both Epson and third-party media, the SureColor P5370 includes Epson Media Installer, a software application designed to help control parameters for successful printing with a variety of media, including thick fine art papers.

“Listening to market needs and incorporating customer feedback, we integrated the latest printhead and ink technologies that are optimized for photography into this new printer so professional photographers can maximize productivity, reliability and consistently produce the finest exhibition-quality prints,” said Marc Aguilera, product manager, Epson America, Inc. “Designed to meet demanding needs, the SureColor P5370 is an evolution to the beloved SureColor P5000, adding improved reliability, deeper black density and wider color gamut in blue hues.

Additional SureColor P5370 features include:

SmartWorks Imaging Brochure

For full flexibility, choose the SmartLF SGi series 36″ and 44″ scanners, winner of the SGIA 2015 Large Format Scanner of the Year and nominee for Wide Format Imaging’s 2016 Scanner of the Year. Perfect for capturing sharply defined detail on technical drawings and maps, as well as the vibrant, accurate colors needed by graphics…

Affordable high quality large format CCD scanners with optimized color imaging performance. Featuring wide color gamut and 1200dpi optical resolution CCD’s that are ideal for full-color graphics, photographs and maps. Fast reliable performance every time.

Sharp and accurate – with superb color

The SmartLF SGi  series 36″ and 44″ scanners are perfect for capturing sharply defined detail on technical drawings and maps as well as the vibrant, accurate colors needed by graphics professionals.

SmartLF SGi series large format scanners have all the advantages of CCD technology’s superior color imaging – the ability to scan a wide gamut (range of colours) and a high dynamic range (ability to see detail in dark and light areas) – combined with 1200 dpi optical resolution, the highest optical resolution available in any CCD wide format scanner in the market today. This makes them perfect for capturing vibrant, accurate colors for graphics professionals as well as sharply defined line detail on technical documents and maps.

SmartLF SGi scanners use the advanced SureDrive paper transport system to maintain accurate document positioning as the document passes through the scanner. Combining this with the ClearView bright white bi-directional LED illumination system ensures that with SG even folded documents scan accurately and as shadow-free as possible.

Images are scanned using 48-bits (color) or 16-bits (monochrome), with the best 24 and 8-bits selected as image data respectively.

All the benefits of CCD – without the downsides

Traditional CCD scanners have superior color imaging but are disadvantaged by their fluorescent lighting systems. By using white LEDs instead of fluorescent tubes, the SmartLF SGi is able to maximize the benefits of CCD while saving time and energy.

NEW SmartWorks Imaging

Optimized all the way through, SmartWorks Imaging is clearer and easier to navigate than SmartWorks Pro. With a faster performance, revised preset control, better printer drivers and a new multi-page thumbnail pop-out feature, SmartWorks Imaging is the perfect productivity partner for SmartLF SCi and SmartLF SGi large format scanners.

LINK Remote Control

Work smarter with LINK. This portable tablet app works with any computer already connected to the scanner and running SmartWorks Imaging to bring effortless control of the scanner to your fingertips. Use LINK to reduce body movement and to improve operator comfort while scanning.

Simplified thick media system

Thick media operation is now full-time on all SGi series scanners.  To raise the lid and increase the thickness capability of the scanner raise the lever on the left-hand side of the scanner lid to its maximum position then load the document manually.   Lower the lever to grip the media and begin scanning.  All media must be loaded panel-side justified with SGi.

No warm up, no waiting

While a fluorescently lit scanner can be used within five minutes of switching on, it should really be left to warm up for about 30 minutes in order for the tubes to reach their optimum light intensity and for the tube temperature to reach equilibrium. If this is not done color match and possible stitch inaccuracies caused by a still cold chassis may result.

ClearView white LED illumination used in SmartLF SGi produces high quality scans just like fluorescent illumination but unlike fluorescent tubes the color temperature from LEDs remains stable from first power-up to final power-down.  No more waiting for warm-up to complete, simply turn SGi scanners on and scan!

2GB scan data memory

SmartLF SGi is the first scanner from Colortrac to have 2GB of onboard scan data memory. This ensures smooth progress of the document through the scanner even if the computer  experiences sudden sluggishness or the Ethernet network is unexpectedly busy.

Significant power saving

SmartLF SGi uses nearly 30% less power when scanning and 94% less power when idle. The scanner has a programmable timer that switches the unit into power saving (ENERGY STAR®) mode when it is not operated for the defined period.

In addition the ‘instant-on’ LED lighting inside every SG means that you can leave the scanner switched off most of the time and only turn it on when you need to use it.

Light for life

While you would normally expect to replace fluorescent tubes every year or two, LEDs are long life. Unlike fluorescent tubes, which stay on the whole time the scanner is switched on, LEDs only come on during the actual scanning process. They have an estimated working life of 50,000 hours which equates to over six years of constant 24/7 scanning!

Less calibration

Fluorescently lit scanners require more frequent calibration because the tubes age and change characteristics over their life. LEDs maintain consistent output and because of this maintenance is required far less frequently.

No mercury

Unlike fluorescent tubes LEDs do not contain mercury, which makes them more environmentally friendly.

More cameras – more accuracy

The SmartLF SGi has six CCDs across the scan width to minimize geometric distortion, more than any other similarly sized scanner.

Traditional CCD scanners are prone to stitch and accuracy issues caused by sensor misalignment. These are minimized in the SmartLF SGi by housing the six CCDs within a rigid monocoque camera chassis.

High productivity

Fast scanning speed

All models scan monochrome at 13 inches per second (200 dpi). If you need high volume color scanning, choose the express color e model which scans color at 8 inches per second (200 dpi).

Gigabit Ethernet connectivity

The SmartLF SGi large format scanner is networkable – it has a Gigabit Ethernet connection as well as a USB2/USB3 connection. The Gigabit Ethernet port can transmit scan data between the scanner and the PC as fast as the USB3 port network traffic allowing.  An Ethernet connection also allows placement of the scanner further from the host PC than when using a USB2 or USB3 connection.

“Scan-it-once” philosophy

SmartWorks Pro software takes ‘scan-it-once’ to its heart.

With other wide format scanners operators often need to perform multiple pre-scans of selected image areas to get scan settings right. With the SmartLF SGi large format scanner and SmartWorks Pro the ‘scan-it-once’ system although present in SmartWorks TOUCH, really goes up a gear. Once the scan data is on-screen thresholding and any image enhancements required on the scan such as sharpening or background clean-up can be made in real time and in very controllable increments.

Scan-it-once technology gives you a huge workflow advantage. You can perform quality assurance and adjustments in-line, “right-first-time”, instead of needing to re-scan quality control failures off-line after batch scanning is completed.

An additional advantage of scan-it-once technology is that it minimizes document movement (and possible wear) through the scanner and document skew caused by repeated back and forth “checking”.

Intelligent Adaptive Thresholding (IAT)

IAT allows operators to create better quality scans of dirty documents very quickly by reacting automatically to a range of different background dirt intensities.

Preserves delicate originals

The SmartLF SGi SureDrive  paper transport system applies the minimum force necessary for preserving delicate originals, while achieving the required traction and accuracy to ensure images are sharp and shadow free.

Professional-level scan and copying software

SmartWorks Pro is available in two versions and either SmartWorks Pro SCAN or SmartWorks Pro SCAN & COPY must normally be purchased separately to use with this scanner .  A trial version of the software operating exactly as the full version but watermarking every scan and copy is shipped with each SG scanner.  Every SGi scanner includes SmartWorks TOUCH (see Software) and a basic Twain interface for use inside viewing certain applications designed to support Twain.  See website for more details.

Simple scanner control panel interface

The basic but effective scanner control panel has buttons to start and stop any scan or copy as well providing manual control over document movement.

Plug ‘n’ Play USB 2.0 /USB 3.0 and Ethernet interfaces

Simply plug the scanner into your PC and use it.  The SGi scanner automatically detects whether the port on the computer is USB3 or USB2 and alters the maximum scan speed so the computer is not overloaded with data. When using Ethernet SmartWorks Pro software is designed to detect any SGi scanner attached to the network automatically and operates using DHCP networking protocol.

Low maintenance

SmartLF SGi requires minimal service and calibration. The utility software included with it provides you with all the maintenance applications you need to keep your large format scanner in prime condition and up-to-date with the latest firmware and drivers. The scan glass is held down by magnets for quick and easy removal or replacement and there is easy access to the SmartLF SGi’s paper feed for cleaning.

Environmentally friendly

SmartLF SGi wide format scanner is RoHS compliant; energy efficient (it has earned the ENERGY STAR®); does not use consumable fluorescent lamps which contain mercury; uses recycle friendly components; and is optimized for quiet operation.


The SmartLF SGi large format scanner is available in three models: m (monochrome), c (color) and e (enhanced color).

If your initial requirement is for a monochrome wide format scanner only, you can buy a monochrome scanner now and upgrade to color if and when you need it. If your initial requirement is for infrequent color scanning, you can buy a color wide format scanner now and upgrade to a faster enhanced color model should your color scanning volume increase.

You can upgrade your scanner quickly and easily, by email. There is no need for you to return the scanner to us or for a service engineer to call.
