Account type  (U.S.- Fax only)
A brief description of the business Medical office 
Description of the feature being requested A HIPAA compliant fax cover sheet is a requirement in the USA. While it is possible to create a "custom" HIPAAA compliant Fax cover sheet when using the desktop app, it is not available as an option when using the web portal, mobile app or when using Email to Fax. This effectively eliminates the option for us to send Faxes with anything other than the desktop app.

Can you add a HIPAA compliant Fax Cover Page as an option in the Fax Cover Page drop down list so that we can set is a default for all of our outgoing 

Essentially, all that is needed is to add this wording to any existing Fax Cover Page

IMPORTANT: This facsimile transmission contains confidential information, some or all of which may be protected health information as defined by the federal Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule. This transmission is intended for the exclusive use of the individual or entity to whom it is addressed and may contain information that is proprietary, privileged, confidential and/or exempt from disclosure under applicable law. If you are not the intended recipient (or an employee or agent responsible for delivering this facsimile transmission to the intended recipient), you are hereby notified that any disclosure, dissemination, distribution or copying of this information is strictly prohibited and may be subject to legal restriction or sanction. Please notify the sender by telephone (number listed above) to arrange the return or destruction of the information and all copies.

A typical use case scenario  This Fax cover page would be used for every Fax sent containing patient information
Benefit of such feature:  Allow all of your health care clients to have the same options for sending a Fax as anyone else
Number of Users:   Hundred or thousands of your health care clients

i have been trying for 5 years to get this moved up and done. the more requests the best. I was told they didnt want to because of legal issues. So I asked to let each client create their own fax cover and upload it so that every fax going out uses the same cover sheet
