E-Mail Advice


E-Mail AdviceWhen using e-mail or the Internet to communicate with patients, risk-management experts advise psychiatrists to do the following: Make sure that information posted on their practice's Web site is up-to-date and accurate. Monitor online scheduling programs carefully to ensure that confidentiality is preserved. Establish security and encryption precautions prior to using e-mail with patients. Obtain and document patients' informed consent to communicate with them by e-mail. Discuss with patients those topics that you are willing to discuss via e-mail, as well as the benefits, risks, and limitations involved with e-mail communication. Check e-mail frequently. Print e-mail exchanges with patients and keep them with patients' medical records.
