HIPAA-Secure Messaging

Perfecting HIPAA-Secure Messaging

OnPage’s HIPAA-secure messaging platform allows care teams to securely exchange sensitive information on the OnPage mobile pager application. All communications are encrypted and hosted on OnPage’s SSAE-16-compliant facility.

The mobile pager service enhances care team accountability, transparency and responsiveness. OnPage’s HIPAA-secure messaging solution overrides the silent switch on all smartphones, and it automates alert delivery to the person on call through web-based digital schedules and escalation policies.

Latest Integration:

OnPage-OpenEMR Integration

Using OnPage’s API, OnPage makes web service requests to OpenEMR records and when the established criteria are met (i.e., a change in the EMR that is significant enough to trigger an alert), OnPage receives a response, along with relevant information and files to include in an alert to the appropriate person or care team.

Many hospitals are postponing their decisions on replacing their obsolete pager systems. They don’t want to run the risk of selecting a solution that is difficult to use and that will meet with user resistance.

What’re the best criteria for choosing a secure messaging alternative? This guide explores nine important questions to ask of any clinical communications platform vendor including:

  • Does the solution actually replace pagers or just add on to pagers?
  • Does the solution comply with HIPAA mandates?
  • Does the solution improve workflows, keep the status quo or disrupt communication?
