HIPAA Journal recently showed email is one of the most vulnerable ways to communicate due to the cyber-attacks being experienced which includes social engineering, phishing attacks and misdirected emails. Email communication was the second most common location of breached PHI. There’s a myth that including a confidentiality notice or disclaimer in an email makes the email compliant with HIPAA and allows a dentist to send PHI via unencrypted or unsecure email. The myth is false. Even the best-worded notice or disclaimer will not make an unencrypted email comply with HIPAA.
Todd Sexton, CEO of Identillect Technologies comments, “Dental Service Organizations such as DDS Dental Technology provide an invaluable service to their customers by advancing technology for practices of all sizes. Identillect has continued to make a significant impact with these organizations by securing all their client communication and we are seeing a significant rise in our user base in the dental community. We are proud to be partnering with such a quality organization like DDS Dental and anticipate continued growth with similar firms throughout 2018.”
