HCIS will be implementing an email encryption service beginning June 8, 2015. Email encryption addresses the need for ensuring the secure delivery of email and protects potentially sensitive data from being exposed externally. With email being a standard mode of conducting business, it is one of the key exposure points for inadvertent data loss.

Voalte is an iPhone based clinical communication device used at UIHC. It allows secure, HIPAA compliant texting between caregivers. Voice calls can be made and received from any other phone system. All communication is presence based. The sender can reach out to service provider that is available and can instantly know the status of the message sent (whether it is read or unread) and act accordingly. Apps like UptoDate and CultureVision are added to Voalte phones. Epic Haiku can be added if requested. Nurse call bedside alarms and alerts will be delivered to Voalte in the next phase.

Important Changes to UI Health Care Email Service on June 8, 2015
HCIS will be implementing an email encryption service beginning June 8, 2015. Email encryption addresses the need for ensuring the secure delivery of email and protects potentially sensitive data from being exposed externally. With email being a standard mode of conducting business, it is one of the key exposure points for inadvertent data loss. Encrypting email messages is a loss prevention technique that safeguards an email, making the data unusable to an unauthenticated third party.
