Am I allowed to e-mail patients and other professionals under the Security Rule?
The Security Rule does not prohibit communication via e-mail or other electronic means. Information can be sent over the Internet as long as it is adequately protected. In general, e-mailing information such as appointment reminders is allowable as a part of treatment and does not require authorization under the Privacy Rule. Providers should make sure that the e-mail contains the minimum amount of information needed, should verify the e-mail address, and confirm that the patient wants to receive e-mails. The privacy notice should include language about appointment reminders.
