Healthmail, secure clinical email, is a service that allows health care providers to send and receive clinical patient information in a secure manner. The initial implementation of Healthmail was for general practitioners (GPs) and their support staff however it is also now available to Community Pharmacies, Nursing Homes and Optometrists. Using Healthmail, patient identifiable clinical information can be shared with colleagues in the HSE, Voluntary Hospitals plus a number of other health care agencies nationally. Healthmail is configured to be easy to use and will improve electronic communication for the benefit of patients and clinicians.
A case study on Healthmail is available here.
