Leading Cloud Fax Company Offers a Comprehensive, Connected Solution for Better Continuum of Care 

J2 Global, Inc. – the leader in digital cloud faxing – announced today an unparalleled opportunity for healthcare providers to move from paper faxing to a comprehensive interoperability system through an easy-to-use platform that connects healthcare organizations through the entire continuum-of-care.

Called Consensus, the platform offers one comprehensive connection with a simple, inbox-like dashboard to manage all incoming and outgoing patient documents including cloud faxes, Direct secure messaging, patient query and API integration into exchanges. Users do not need an EHR to provide this level of enhanced data fluidity and digital interoperability. Those with an EHR will find an easy workflow for integrating patient data.

Consensus provides healthcare organizations access to patient data from a single dashboard for:

  • Digital cloud faxing — as easy as sending and receiving email — without the need for paper, fax lines, or on-prem fax hardware.
  • Conversion of a cloud fax phone number to send documents as a direct message.
  • Direct secure messaging, leveraging the DirectTrust™ network with access to over two million provider addresses.
  • Patient queries for providers live on Carequality, including those connected through CommonWell Health Alliance®.
  • Connectivity access to referral networks, ACOs, community and state exchanges, and HIEs.
  • Support of standards such as C-CDA, HL7, and FHIR.

“Having a user-friendly workspace with the ability to manage patient health records for cloud faxing, direct message and record based query would help our organization expand standardly into varied health environments with confidence to support the workflow and uneven user needs and technical capabilities,” said Thalia Baker, Associate Vice President, Primary Care at UAB Medicine.

Sub-Acute and post-acute agencies like Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), Rehabilitation Centers, Assisted Living Facilities as well as physician practices will find the Consensus dashboard enhances and streamlines workflows and provides all document management from one single application.


“We are pleased to offer Consensus to healthcare providers who have struggled to gain access to critical patient data,” said John Nebergall, SVP/GM J2 Global Cloud Faxing. “Paper faxing is still the preferred method of sending patient data, with over 75% of patient data sent every year using paper faxes. We have been successful moving our customers from paper to cloud faxing, and we are now proud to launch the next level of interoperability without adding complexity.”
