There’s a lot of challenges for any doctor who runs a private practice, from dealing with insurers for payment to making sure the printer has enough ink.
But one of the biggest challenges is realizing the benefits technology provides in an ethical way. Even something as simple as sending an email comes with legal and ethical obligations that practices need to consider.
That’s exactly what Katie McBride, Ph.D. did when she wanted to improve the efficiency of her communications with patients and other providers.
With security comes freedom
Before securing their email, Dr. McBride was limited in how she could communicate with patients via email. “With regular email servers, any and all contact with clients carried a risk for breaches,” said Dr. McBride. “My practice policy had to limit e-communication to routine scheduling.”
Rather than take any risks when sending emails, Dr. McBride took the time to research email encryption vendors and chose Paubox to secure her communications.
“Paubox has allowed me freedom to communicate directly and more broadly with my psychotherapy clients and with other related professionals,” said Dr. McBride. “With its seamless email encryption and keeping my own email address, Paubox has given me peace of mind.”
