The New York Times recently released an article detailing the difficulties that many healthcare organizations in Harris County, Texas were experiencing as they worked to quickly process the increasing number of COVD-19 tests. The article highlighted how small organizations don’t have the same tools and resources as large organizations. Manual and inefficient fax processes are creating bottlenecks and issues with accurately delivering protected patient information.
