Does Texting Violate HIPAA?

From Jeff Tonner:

Here is the skinny.  “Regular” SMS texting violates federal law if it contains “electronic protected health information” or ePHI.  To comply, a dentist and staff need to employ a HIPAA-compliant app, one that encrypts the message.  Call your text or app provider and ask if their service satisfies HIPAA.  If not, find one that does.
