Go beyond “just” secure messaging

Does it matter if a physician wants to use a personal phone to send messages to colleagues if it makes her job easier? Yes! Federal laws require that identifiable patient information be kept secure, and neither standard messaging or emailing are considered secure methods of communication. Plus, mobile devices become significantly more useful if they are integrated with the facility’s employee directory and on-call schedules.

Secure messaging is a great initial step for hospitals to explore secure, HIPAA-compliant communications. But to truly make it easier for clinicians to collaborate to provide better patient care, hospitals need a comprehensive solution that simplifies workflows and goes far beyond texts.

So, what’s the best way to rein in the herd of mobile devices at your facility, deploy a solution, and use secure messaging as part of your overall communication strategy? Read the guide to secure messaging in healthcare to learn more!
