USA (United States of America)
Medical professionals want to use texting and email to communicate professionally, and patients and clients of health care services often ask to communicate with health care offices via email or text message. Demands to use new technologies and new guidance from HHS on individual access of protected health information indicate that many of the policies and procedures in place at every healthcare-related organization will need to be reviewed and updated to meet the new requirements in the rules and guidance and meet the desires of staff and patients to use time-saving technologies like texting and email.
