As long as we ensure reasonable safeguards, HIPAA Privacy Rule and Security Rule allow appropriate electronically communication and handling of health care 'Protected Health Information'. All personal medical information, including name, address, Social Security number, and all medical information about an "individual" come under PHI.
The information that makes a message subject to HIPAA.
Why should you Attend?
With the introduction of smart phones, emails have become the even more accessible form of communication. In conjunction with email comes issue of security and them being intercepted and read by unintended persons. HIPAA and email & texting can co-exist, when Privacy and Security rules are understood and implemented.
Precautions and steps are to be taken at every step of the way. Be it in scenarios like unintentional disclosures in emails by wrong email id's or emails initiated by patients without knowing the risks and the potential liabilities. So for a Health care concern or a business associate it's a key to maximize patient communication tools while protecting itself and the organization from government penalties and patient lawsuits.
