Secure Email and Direct Messaging for Healthcare

Email and direct messaging provide a convenient way for healthcare organizations to electronically exchange patient information. Patients and caregivers benefit from improved care coordination between visits, the ability to handle routine health issues without an office visit, the convenience of addressing patient questions and concerns during off-hours, and much more. However, many caregivers rely on tools that lack appropriate safeguards to ensure patient privacy is protected. This places healthcare organizations at risk of a PHI breach.

To mitigate the risk and improve the speed and accuracy of care, major healthcare IT organizations have been pressed to rapidly adopt and implement compliant email and direct messaging solutions.
