    12 Question Guide To Buying A HIPAA-Compliant Secure Messaging App

    In today’s connected hospital, the way doctors, nurses and other clinicians communicate and collaborate is changing. Outdated communication methods (i.e. pagers, email and landlines) are not compliant with HIPAA, and also lead to inefficient clinical workflows, which can result in a decrease in patient care quality and clinician productivity. With more and more pressure to deliver high quality care while reducing costs, hospitals across the U.S. could benefit from a solution that helps drive increased workflow efficiencies, which, in turn, can lead to reduced costs and improved patient outcomes.
