Which leads luddite doctors and nurses to clutch their faxing pearls because HIPAA SECURITY

its more that they don't want to spend the time to enforce TLS on their email when the faxing works right now.

What Healthcare org do you work for where the practitioners know what TLS is? Faxing is how they've always done it and ITS SECURE, IT GUY so faxing is how they'll do it till the heat death of the universe

Healthcare will single handedly keep faxing alive

most of them don't know what TLS is, they just know it would allow them to use email instead of faxes but also that their IT staff has told them it will take more than 5 minutes. security does not remotely factor into it. its 100% about convenience and short term cost.

doctors and nurses do not care even a little bit about HIPAA or PHI in general, they care about what makes their job easier. lots of them send PHI via SMS.

yeah that's the other thing about faxes. some of them want faxes because they want a ~*HaRdCoPy*~ for their records so you fax them stuff when they're closed and it just sits on the machine in the open until someone comes in and remembers to check the machine.

one of the upsides of provider org consolidation is that kind of thing is starting to go away as everyone gets onboarded onto EMRs

faxes are great because I can draw a picture of a butt and fax it to my friend dave at work and then call him and tell him I sent him a fax and he has to go to the fax machine and pick up the picture of the butt that's been sitting there for an hour where everyone can see it and it's got "HEY DAVE CHECK OUT THIS rear end" written on it

the printers at work scan and email poo poo for us?? works just like a fax except you put an email address instead of a phone number

and then the loser at the other end has to go out of their way and hit print just so they can read it and then thereís also an awful copy of it on the email server wasting precious megabytes


better isnít always better. sometimes less is more

our medical records group was printing medical records for requests from other healthcare organizations as packets they would fax over, then scanning those packets back into the EHR wholesale and not deleting the originals. each request for each patient had this happen. every time

holy gently caress it makes me mad just typing that.
