How To Stop Putting Your Patients’ Privacy at Risk

Many clinics are still unaware that regular email and FAX are NOT secure. The truth is, email is a dangerous vulnerability that is the most common way ransomware infections can enter your clinic. As for fax, researchers have found that hackers only need your fax number to gain complete access to your entire IT network. 

Secure-Mail helps keep Argyle Associates safe

Brightsquid Secure-Mail is a big part of how Argyle Associates are doing everything they can to keep their patient information protected. Randy, one of the managers at Argyle Associates Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, is surprised when other clinics aren’t taking the necessary precautions to protect patient information. 

Argyle Associates mainly use Secure-Mail for compliance and efficiency (it’s rated as the most time-saving way to collaborate between clinics) when sending out patient x-rays, emails, treatments, etc to other clinics. There's a big comfort in knowing the patient information they’re transmitting is secure.

They’ve been using Secure-Mail since 2016 and now send over 1,000 messages every month. The fact that it’s so easy to use and compliant is how Randy says Secure-Mail has added layers of efficiency to their front office.

Leading clinics choose Brightsquid Secure-Mail over fax and mail.

Randy notices there are still a few clinics who resist the upgrade to use Secure-Mail and insist on using regular email and fax. Randy says he can’t control how clinics transport patient information but he can ensure Argyle is protected.

Use Secure-Mail to protect your practice

With hackers becoming more aware of the surprising value of patient records on the black market (up to $130/record), Randy believes colleges are soon going to make it mandatory for clinics to use a secure messaging platform. Randy sees Brightsquid Secure-Mail as the easier secure messaging platform to use and recommends other clinics use Brightsquid Secure-Mail, while singing the praises of our “great support team.” 

With an unlimited membership to Brightsquid Secure-Mail, you’ll get back all the time and money your clinic is wasting on fax and mail.
