Privacy Awareness Week 2014 & your dental practice
The theme for Privacy Awareness Week is transparency.
We have just added to our transparency by making each patient aware of the benefits of letting us email correspondence and x-rays to specialists (and back) using standard email so we get superior records by removing the need for old fashioned scanning or expensive encryption. EVERYONE of our patients has said “What a good idea”. Of course we are sensible with what we send and have added a ‘signoff’ clause on the bottom of our referral letters so patients get to see exactly what we are sending.
