Carestream Dental Announces New Preferred Partner Available to Software Users
Carestream Dental is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Protected Trust to offer its software solutions users discounted rates for sending encrypted emails. Protected Trust provides a secure email tool that seamlessly integrates into Carestream Dental practice management software.
“Emails must be encrypted when sending protected health information (PHI), though most electronic channels aren’t as secure as they should be for a practice to remain HIPPA-compliant,” Robert Patrick, global product line manager director, dental practice management solutions, Carestream Dental, said. “However, Protected Trust gives our software users more options to ensure their data is safe and getting to the right recipient, while still following patient privacy laws.”
Not complying with HIPPA rules on privacy, security and breach notification can result in substantial fines. Therefore, to maintain compliance when communicating with referring practices, patients and insurance providers, it’s recommended that practices partner with a service that provides a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement, read receipts and audit messages—all features Protected Trust provides.
Protected Trust offers simple and secure email encryption that protects doctors’ valuable digital information, ensuring privacy and compliance. HIPAA compliance for oral health professionals doesn’t end with email encryption. Protected Trust also offers hosted email via Microsoft Office 365, managed IT services and secure backup and disaster recovery solutions to protect and maintain a practice’s workstations.
