    What about email?

    Email, short for electronic mail is a very popular way for two or more parties to communicate messages over a network, like the Internet. Each website can be setup with email so that your email address is "Firstname.Lastname@MyPracticeDomainName.com".

    There are many legal and regulatory questions/issues surrounding the acceptable use of email between physicians and patients. Therefore, before you implement email, be sure to review your practice's operation and training procedures to make sure they comply with guidelines and recommendations. MMA is available to help you during this process.
