Learn which types of electronic communications are most secure and who is permitted to see them to avoid regulatory violations. Use of common commercial e-mail services will not offer the necessary protection required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. ED managers should be familiar with guidelines, especially electronically protected health information. Follow-up e-mails to primary care providers are only appropriate if your line and the recipient's line are encrypted.
