SecureMail: Introduction

Follow

Instructions below ONLY apply to SecureMail.

Thank you for your interest in our new MyPBHS SecureMail product! We are very excited to provide ADA endorsed and HIPAA compliant email and collaboration services through our encrypted online MyPBHS portal. The information below will be helpful getting you started using the secure messaging service.

How does it work?
MyPBHS SecureMail allows you to create an account within the MyPBHS Portal (https://mysecurepractice.com). You may use an existing email address of your choice to register and create an account which will allow you to reply to incoming messages that are sent to you securely through the portal. You also have the option to upgrade to a paid user account which will allow you to compose secure messages to any other existing MyPBHS Secure Mail account as well as invite new users to communicate with you securely through the portal.

Please note PBHS SecureMail does not supplement your regular email services or change them in any way. You will receive notification emails in your regular email inbox that are not secure, simply notifying you that a message is ready to view. The MyPBHS Portal provides you with an environment in which to send/receive secure messages and you will still be able to send and receive normal email as you do now. Only when logged into the secure MyPBHS portal (using your email address and password) are your messages secure.

There are a few ways to sign up for PBHS SecureMail:

1. Sign up for MyPBHS SecureMail for your practice!
In order to be HIPAA compliant, your practice needs to transmit protected patient health information securely. You may sign up for our product using the link below:

2. Sign up from an invitation from an existing user
When a secure message is sent through the portal to someone who does not have a PBHS SecureMail account, they will receive an invitation email letting them know that your practice has sent a PBHS secure message. The email will contain a link for them to sign up for a free account. Once they register their free account, they will be able to read and reply to your messages for free. If they would like to compose new messages to other users, they will be prompted to upgrade their account to a paid account.

3. Sign up from an invitation from PBHS
This generally applies to SEO and truForm clients that do not yet have a portal account setup for their practice. PBHS will send you an invitation to your preferred email address and assist you with the registration process.

Help your doctors use PBHS HIPAA compliant secure email (for paid users)

Congratulations on implementing a secure solution within your practice for sending and receiving patient data. PBHS SecureMail is a HIPAA compliant system that facilitates secure messaging and collaboration with your colleagues and patients within our encrypted portal. You have already paid for this service so it is free for your referring doctors to reply to your secure messages by creating an account. They can also choose to upgrade to a paid account at any time.

This is extremely vital for HIPAA compliance, and unfortunately the more stringent regulations require the sending and receiving of patient data to be less "convenient" than traditional email methods - the best news is that you know you are covered by using this secure messaging system.

We understand that getting your colleagues and patients using the new secure messaging system can be the most difficult part, so below you will find some suggestions to assist you with this process!

  • Let them know this is a free service to them that will protect them from significant HIPAA violations and fines.
  • Send out an initial mass email to your colleagues to inform them of your transition to a HIPAA compliant secure messaging service before inviting them by sending them a message within the portal.
