Amion now offers free, HIPAA-compliant secure texting for all Amion schedules.
For years, Amion has made it easy to page staff from on-call lists but traditional
pagers and SMS text messages are not secure. Hospitals and even small practices can
face steep fines if Protected Health Information (PHI) is found in non-secure places,
such as on people's phones.
Amion aims to make secure messaging simple with two-way messaging within our free Amion mobile app and one-way messaging from Amion web schedules.
Amion Secure Messaging operates just like texting but keeps work communication separate
from personal chat. The contact list includes only Amion colleagues. Conversations
remain inside the Amion mobile app.
For top-tier security, texts and images are not stored on your phone. Messages stay
within the Amion network and are encrypted on our servers.
Amion Secure Messaging lets you:
- Easily find and message anyone in your group
- See when someone is online, typing or has read your message
- Preview text in the lock screen with Smart Secure
- Converse with groups to keep everyone in the loop
- Transmit patient information knowing that messages will be HIPAA-secure
Other secure-messaging channels require you to unlock the phone and open an app to
view a message, even for a simple "OK". Amion's Smart Secure masks names and
other personally identifying details and displays some of the message on the lock
screen. You'll know at a glance whether a message needs attention.
