HHS Mandatory Email & Text Message Encryption Rules with Only One Exception for Informed Patients

26apr12:00 pm1:30 pmHHS Mandatory Email & Text Message Encryption Rules with Only One Exception for Informed PatientsWebinar

Event Details

HHS and CMS have confirmed the requirement that all Emails and Text Messages containing Protected Health Information (PHI) must be encrypted.

The Internet is awash with misinformation about Health Care Email and Text Messaging that can get Covered Entities into serious trouble. Part of the problem is a common misunderstanding of how HIPAA defines PHI. It’s much more than information about an individual’s medical condition, prescribed treatment, diagnosis, or medications as the webinar will explain.

It also will explain when Emails and Text Messages containing PHI must be encrypted and the simple 3 Step HIPAA Safeguard that fully protects Covered Entities from HIPAA violations when communicating with patients by unencrypted email and text message – even if the unencrypted transmission is intercepted.

Registration is $149 for one attendee and $299 for a group. For more info, click here.
