Cascade Dafo is committed to protecting patients’ private and confidential health information. With today’s heavy reliance on technology as a communication tool, protected health information (PHI) is often transmitted electronically—including via email. To ensure that we’re safeguarding the emails we send containing sensitive PHI, we have implemented the Cascade Secure Email System.
Rather than sending an email containing PHI across the internet (unprotected and uncontrolled) to someone’s inbox, the Cascade Secure Email System houses the sensitive message within our secured servers. Instead of the email itself, the recipient receives an email notification that s/he has sensitive information waiting with a clickable link to access the information safely. This process eliminates any threat of a hacker accessing the PHI.
This method of transmitting PHI complies with HIPAA regulations and ensures we maintain patient privacy and confidentiality. If you have any questions regarding the new secure email system, please ask Customer Service, 800/848-7332, email@example.com.
