Learn how to use the Paubox Email API to combat COVID-19 at Paubox SECURE @ Home
Learn How Paubox Email API Can Power Contact Tracing Applications at Paubox SECURE @ Home The CDC considers contact tracingkey strategy for preventing further spread of the coronavirus.  The goal is to identify people who don’t know they’re infected and encourage them to self-quarantine before they unwittingly infect others. Attendees at our upcoming virtual conference, Paubox SECURE @ Home, on October 21–22, will have the chance to learn how to leverage the Paubox Email API to build contact tracing applications and send test results at scale to combat COVID-19.

Why email is better for contact tracing

With Americans receiving an average of  2,000 robocalls per second, healthcare organizations face strong headwinds around secure patient outreach.  This poses a problem for contact tracing efforts when people don't answer the phone if they don't recognize the number. However, there are alternatives.  Our HIPAA compliant Paubox Email API can be used to send emails to people who have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, and also to send them their test results. SEE ALSO: Best Practices for COVID-19 Digital Contact Tracing: Privacy, Ethics, and Cooperation A significant benefit of using email is that the message recipient doesn't have to download a specific contact tracing app in order to get the message; it simply arrives in the inbox, no password or portal required. In fact, a number of our customers are already using the Paubox Email API to communicate with patients about COVID-19, such as ZiphyCare whose lifesaving app sends emails containing protected health information (PHI) to patients. Attend this presentation on Wednesday, October 21 at 2:10PM PDT to learn how you can leverage the Paubox Email API to build your own application to help with contact tracing, share COVID-19 test results, and the like.
