Why is there an issue in sending patient information via email correspondence?
HIPAA guidelines specifically dictate that NO patient identifying information be provided in email correspondence unless the message is encrypted. Because we do not have a reliable encryption method available at this time, we ask that such information be communicated by fax or mail. MU Health Care is strongly committed to ensuring compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies governing access to patient information.
