NZ health sector to phase out analogue fax machines by end of 2020

Analogue fax machines will be phased out from the New Zealand health sector by the end of this year, with the Ministry of Health seeking a waiver to allow the use of digital alternatives to faxes for prescriptions.

The ministry is recommending that as well as secure messaging, health agencies use scan to email instead and is mandating that health organisations enable the Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption protocol on email servers this month.
