policy 0193 : Electronic Mail (Email)

Electronic mail (email), when used properly, can be an effective tool for communication of business information. Improper use may result in unintended disclosures of patient privacy and other confidential information. Email can be subject to discovery in litigation and may be subject to a Request for Information under the Freedom of Information Act. This policy defines usage practices for those individuals granted access to and use of the Medical Center’s Exchange server (*HS) in order to promote maximum privacy and security of confidential information.
