How Dentists Can Benefit from HIPAA Compliant Email

Dentists handle sensitive information daily, from personal patient data to medical records and insurance information. A HIPAA compliant email has various features to safeguard this information during electronic transmission. Enterprise Guardian provides a secure email solution to protect patient information while complying with HIPAA regulations. Here are five ways it can benefit dentists:

Better Protection for Confidential Information

Dentists must protect their patient’s confidential information from being intercepted or stolen during electronic transmission. Social security numbers, medical records, and other personal data can be used for identity theft or fraud. Enterprise Guardian offers a HIPAA compliant email with end-to-end encryption, two-factor authentication, antivirus systems, and other security measures. PHI is encrypted both in transit and at rest for increased confidentiality.

Compliance with HIPAA Regulations

The law requires dentists to protect confidential patient information, as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act outlines. They must have proper safeguards and regularly conduct risk assessments to identify vulnerabilities. To avoid issues with breaches, use secure email to make sure your data can’t be touched. Enterprise Guardian offers a simple and effective solution to comply with these regulations. You only need to use our secure email service to send your emails as usual.

Increased Trust from Patients

Patients trust their dentists to keep their personal and medical information safe. With HIPAA-compliant email, you can assure your patients that their data is secure during electronic transmission. This shows that you value their privacy and take the necessary precautions to protect it. This contributes to building a strong patient-dentist relationship, increasing patient retention and referrals, and boosting your practice’s success. 

Improved Communication

HIPAA compliant email offers more than just security for patient information. It also streamlines communication within your practice and with other healthcare providers involved in a patient’s care. Through encrypted emails, dentists can securely share X-rays, lab results, treatment plans, and other information with orthodontists or oral surgeons. When you choose Enterprize Guardian, you also access other communication features on our webmail interface, including file sharing and eChat with text, audio, video, and group chat. These further enhance communication and productivity within your practice.

Minimized Data Loss

Electronic data loss can cause issues for dentists and their patients when files are missing. Secure emails have disaster recovery features to minimize data loss if an accidental deletion or cyber attack occurs. As long as you’re an Enguard client, we archive all the emails you send and receive. If you lose an email or it gets corrupted, you can retrieve it easily. This feature reduces the risk of losing patient information and maintains continuity in case of a disaster.
