3-Hour Virtual Seminar on MACRA & MIPS - HIPAA Rules for Text Messaging & Email

Patient Engagement is widely recognized as essential for improving the quality of healthcare in the United States. Coordination of Care through Patient Engagement is a cornerstone of MACRA and revisions of Federal healthcare payment policy. Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) includes secure patient portals and secure messaging. Encrypted text message and email products are available from vendors. But patients overwhelmingly choose easy-to-use unencrypted email and text messaging systems. Tens of thousands of unencrypted appointment reminders, healthcare instructions, patient satisfaction surveys, health and wellness newsletters and recall reminders are sent every day exposing Healthcare Providers to unnecessary, easily avoidable risks. HIPAA provides a simple, but little known "Safe Harbor" for Healthcare Providers that permits unencrypted email and text message transmissions to a patient.
