For individuals in a pediatric practice, using a generic email address to send statements, appointment reminders, and even birthday wishes to patients and their families is perfect. However, when providers are communicating with one another, a hospital, or other care facilities about a patient’s health, a general email address is not an acceptable means of communication because it isn’t in a HIPAA-compliant format. As a result, pediatric practices need an alternative way to send sensitive information.

- Send and receive secure communications electronically
- Remain compliant with HIPAA electronic messaging regulations
- Reduce the dependence on fax machines for communicating patient information
With OP’s Direct Message solution, you’ll be able to communicate sensitive patient information easily and securely.
