Atlas.md EMR operates free from HIPAA regulation, and free from government scrutiny.
Instead patients are in the power seat to communicate as THEY see fit with their physicians.
When patients enroll, they can opt in to receive communications over non-HIPAA-compliant methods.
These non-HIPAA-compliant methods include confidential communications via SMS, email and Twitter DMs, and also general billing conducted via email.
Unless users check to allow these features, no private information will be communicated in any of these manners.
However, Atlas.md EMR will send emails to patients regarding billing, e.g. invoices, confirmation of payments, confirmation of refunds, and more.
Invoices, to the best of Atlas.md EMR’s abilities, will never contain any sensitive or compromising information.
