Maegan Megginson: Email portals require too many steps (Paubox Email API eliminates portals)
Hoala Greevy: We built an API earlier this year. For an EHR like Simple Practice, we built this service where you can just hook in to Paubox to send email
Maegan Megginson: Oh cool.
Hoala Greevy: So it’s more program-atically instead of a human on their phone.
Maegan Megginson: Yeah yeah.
Hoala Greevy: All kinds of cool stuff like proof of delivery, medication reminders, billing reminders. Because a lot of our customers, the bill has PHI in it – name, service, whatever, right? They’re finding that to get paid, a lot of people won’t log in to the portal to get your bill, so they hook into our API to deliver the invoice as a PDF right to the inbox, and then they’re seeing that.
So we’re really fired up on the API.
Maegan Megginson: They just created, a couple months ago, launched a secure messenger, which I don’t use because I’m like, “This is annoying.” I have to log-in here and messages – I would much rather just do it all through email.
Hoala Greevy: That – our API could do exactly that. So you get the message to your inbox, you don’t have to log into the portal, that’s it.
Maegan Megginson: For me it’s more of the inconvenience for the client. That the client doesn’t want to – they get an email that says, “You have a secure message, log into your portal”, and they have to log into the portal to get the message, and then it’s – It’s just too many steps.
Hoala Greevy: Oh and then it’s the OHSU portal, it’s that portal, it’s like twenty different portals. And then on your phone? Forget it, nobody does that.
