She is kind enough to provide internet connection in her house for myself when I visit, which is long periods of time lately and for the grandkids or others that might need a connection. 

I really wish there was a SIMPLE tablet she could learn to use so she could use some of the advantages of paying for internet year round. I looked at grandpad, no beuno! Not paying for another subscription.

Oh and she is pretty reluctant to go to the Dr anyway. Says, "what would they be able to do that this point? I've lived a long and happy life." She's currently 92.

Bb, Iris

My mother was just like you, she resists technology until she turned 62! How amazing was that? right now she enjoyed reading the news online and reading ebooks bc I gave her an iPad. Give technology a chance coz it's here already ;) 


 My grandma is still afraid to use any gadget but when there was a need to visit a doctor especially during the lockdown, we managed to let her use our laptop to do the telemedicine at curogram.com  the experience was smooth yet she was anxious. Indeed, she still has to adopt but we are slowly getting there.

Hi! biggrin ...no cell phone lady here....

I have purposely avoided making a portal to my provider, said I dont have the tech. And I'm not completely lying, it's all to confusing and in my mind downright discrimination against elderly and others who can't use or don't have access to proper devices.

Tech rebel. Iris

Indeed you some points there to ponder. Privacy and Encryption are critical, so the government must provide security that can at least withstand thru whatever and of course to provide uniformity and confidence to the providers to use one compliance for all. Like a secured way of texting - https://curogram.com/hipaa-compliant-texting

That was an interesting post and the included links were as well, thanks. Until the various alphabet agencies decide what medical providers can and cannot do, I believe we‘ll continue to be required to use those provider portals. They will determine what’s acceptable encryption, or not. There’s a huge amount of potential liability, as discussed in the article on those found to have violated the transfer of PHI. Health care providers will continue to choose their own approved method of encryption in my opinion. At least until the government decides for us, or we give away our right to privacy.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Recent events have shown us that in-person visits to the doctors are not always a viable option. The COVID-19 outbreak presented many challenges for countries all over the world and their healthcare systems. 

Among the many challenges healthcare professionals face in an emergency situation, like the COVID-19 pandemic, is the need to find a suitable solution that would enable them to communicate with patients and share protected health information (PHI) in a HIPAA compliant manner. 

For most people, the first communication channel that comes to mind is email. This should not come as a surprise since most businesses are already using email for all sorts of internal and client communication. 

You are already using email, and so are your clients, so it makes perfect sense, right? There is no need to search for a new solution, download an app, or set up a new system. That said, there are quite a few conditions that need to be met before you can even consider sending out emails with sensitive medical information. 

On average, over 200 billion emails are exchanged on a daily basis, and a good portion of them - those including PHI - need to be HIPAA compliant. 

Read more, this might be helpful since every day we utilize email as our means of communication! https://curogram.com/blog/is-email-hipaa-compliant
