New HIPAA Encryption Rules for Email & Text Message and Mandatory Exception for Patients

Wednesday, July 22, 2020, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM


Overview:

Regular (unencrypted) Email and Text Messaging are effective engagement and communication tools that patients like and have the right to use.

A simple 3 Step HIPAA Safeguard fully protects Covered Entities from violating both HIPAA and the TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act) to ward off expensive TCPA class actions. The Internet is awash with mis-information about Health Care Email and Text Messaging that can lead Covered Entities into serious trouble.

HIPAA Rules generated by the HITECH Act and OCR guidance clearly explain how Covered Entities must comply with a patient's right to communicate by unencrypted Email and Text Messaging. The new HIPAA Rules and a directive from the CMS Center for Clinical Standards and Quality/Survey & Certification Group also clarify when Covered Entities must use encrypted Email and Text Messages when communicating PHI.

This webinar will explain how Covered Entities can protect themselves from HIPAA and TCPA violations by following the simple 3 Step Safeguard to communicate with patients using unencrypted Email and Text Messages.It also will explain when Emails and Text Messages containing PHI must be encrypted.
