E-mail has long been a staple of people's lives, but as we move into the new digital age, it seems everyone is moving to a new smart phone and wants to use it in all the incredible ways it can be used for health care purposes, including the use of e-mail and texting.
Doctors are finding that texting is far more flexible, convenient, and effective than paging, and patients want to be able to use short message texting for handling of appointments, updates, and the like, where even e-mail or the telephone would seem inconvenient.
In order to integrate the use of e-mail and texting into patient communications, it is essential to perform the proper steps in an information security compliance process to evaluate and address the risks of using the technology. This session will describe the information security compliance process, how it works, and how it can help you decide how to integrate e-mail and texting into your organization in a compliant way. The process, including the use of information security risk analysis, will be explained, and the policies needed to support the process will be described.
Smart phones and the Internet have changed the way people communicate and introduced new risks into the process. Now patients want to be able to communicate with their health care providers, and providers want to communicate with each other using these devices, and to be able to access, send, and receive health information.
E-mail has long been a part of communications for man, but texting is becoming ubiquitous and ingrained in personal and healthcare communications.
