FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Practice communications management company Updox and electronic health record solutions provider, SOAPware Inc., have shaped a strategic alliance in order to improve health information exchange. The two will work together to provide SOAPware EHR customers with a fully integrated, bi-directional, electronic faxing and document management solution.

SOAPware, having accumulated 2 decades of experience in the EMR industry, ranks in the top 2% of successful Meaningful Use attestations.  Seeking to continue their record of increasing productivity within medical practices, SOAPware, Inc. believes that the new integration with Updox will offer clients a more desirable alternative to traditional communication methods and processes.

Furthermore, SOAPware officials report this new faxing solution offers enhanced support to subscribers, due to Updox's industry-specific and longstanding success in the document management/communications sector.  "Updox has an outstanding team delivering a powerful and proven solution," Dr. Randall Oates affirms. 

"We are pleased to be expanding our partnership with an industry leading company like SOAPware," said Mark Shary, Updox chairman. "By integrating with their EHR, our Practice Communications Management (PCM) system provides SOAPware practices with a single interface to manage documents and improve the communications workflow.  Our mutual commitment to providing an outstanding customer experience makes this a great relationship."
