How Faxing is used for Healthcare, Pt.3

Healthcare Multi-Function Printer (MFP) Integrations

Healthcare organizations of every size integrate RightFax with MFP devices – whether it’s a single MFP or an entire global fleet of MFPs. Integration modules for RightFax and the MFP device allow for a fully-functioning, efficient integration that allows for a feature-rich, interactive user experience at the MFP device for faxing.

Unified MFP Connector

With the new Multi-Function Printer (MFP) integration for RightFax 16.2, organizations can integrate RightFax with virtually any MFP brand or model. This provides a partial integration between RightFax and the MFP device, providing limited functionality such as:

  • Send faxes quickly and securely via SMTP-based scan-to-email integration
  • Single Sign On functionality (if equipped)
  • Customizable cover sheets, add notes, etc to outgoing faxes
  • Print-back notifications and confirmations

RightFax Integration for Xerox

RightFax integrates with Xerox Document Centres and Xerox Work Centres to consolidate all faxing services on the network, giving users convenient access to faxing capabilities on the same devices used daily for printing, scanning and copying. With RightFax, users gain both easy walk-up access and a central point of control for electronic as well as hard copy faxing.

RightFax Integration for Ricoh

RightFax integration for ESA is a dynamic, two-way integration with ESA-enabled Ricoh, Gestetner, Savin, and Lanier MFPs. It consolidates faxing services on the network and gives users easy access to the extended document distribution features of the fax server directly from the ESA-enabled MFPs.

RightFax Integration for Konica Minolta

The RightFax Connector for Konica Minolta provides advanced integration between RightFax and Konica Minolta MFP devices for a sophisticated two-way communication solution. This connector requires RightFax 10.5 Feature Pack 1 or later and bEST-equipped MFPs. Choose from two user interfaces and gain all the features provided in the RightFax Connector for Konica Minolta MFPs, the ability to select recipients from personal RightFax user address book, and use of personal RightFax notification options.

RightFax Integration for Sharp

RightFax integrates with Sharp Digital Imagers via the RightFax MFP Module to consolidate all faxing services on the network. Giving customers convenient access to faxing capabilities on the same devices used daily for printing, scanning, and copying. Customers can start with a single server and then expand to more than 1,000 channels. Additionally capacity can be added to include desktop, email, CRM, ERP, document management and other essential business applications.

RightFax Integration for HP

RightFax integrates with HP MFPs and Digital Senders to consolidate all faxing services on the network, giving users convenient access to faxing capabilities on the same devices used daily for printing, scanning and copying. The MFP Module provides an easy-to-use integration platform for integrating RightFax with MFPs and HP Digital Senders. It offers HP and RightFax users a tested and tightly integrated solution that delivers documents securely throughout the organization and externally to customers, suppliers and partners.

SMTP Connector

The SMTP Connector for MFP devices integrates RightFax with a universal connector to leverage MFP fleets. With the SMTP Connector for MFP Devices, organizations can scan documents on SMTP-capable MFP devices and have them delivered with the RightFax server. The SMTP Connector provides connection from the MFP to the RightFax server that effectively adds the RightFax server send capabilities to the MFP. RightFax can print a notification message on the originating device.

When addressing a fax using the SMTP Connector for MFP Devices, users can include the following fax addressing information in the email address:

  • ToCompany – the recipient’s organization/company name
  • ToName – the recipient’s name
  • FromUserID – the sender’s RightFax user ID
  • ToFaxNumber – the recipient’s fax numbers
  • ToFaxNumber is the minimum addressing requirement for sending a fax from an MFP device

Adding the recipient’s name and organization will allow from more complete fax addressing.

The SMTP Connector for MFP Devices connects to the RightFax server through a software module called the External Document Connector (EDC). The EDC Module monitors shared network directories (called repositories) for fax jobs to process and transmit. The repository for the SMTP Connector for MFP Devices is the drop directory of an SMTP domain set up specifically for sending faxes. When a user enters the fax domain in the document’s email address, the job is placed in the drop directory, where it is then picked up by the EDC for processing:

  • The EDC places the job into the RightFax server queue for transmission
  • The RightFax server then faxes the scanned image files
  • The EDC sends a notification message back to the MFP for printing
