Exchange Hosted Services: Secure email communication and collaboration in healthcare
This program is also available in MP3 for download.

 Program Introduction and Guests:

E-mail communication has become the norm for consumers and business people. And when it comes to healthcare, consumers have a growing expectation that they should be able to communicate electronically with their doctor or hospital, just as they do with their bank, retail store, or other service industry provider. Striving to increase efficiency and curb rising costs, healthcare providers are turning to e-mail to replace paper-based communications. But healthcare poses some special challenges when it comes to maintaining confidentiality and privacy. To address issues raised by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other regulatory requirements, healthcare organizations must evaluate and implement organization-wide security best practices and technologies—adding potential complexity and expense to the equation. Finally, there’s a solution for more secure e-mail communication for healthcare: Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services.

Panel guests:

Forrest Hobbs, director of sales and market development for Exchange Hosted Services (formerly known as Frontbridge Technologies), has worked on Exchange Hosted Services since 2001. He develops and implements programs for sales, marketing, and business development. Previously, Forrest headed business development for TTI/Vanguard, a technology think tank for Fortune 500 companies and government agencies.

Danny Bohm, senior product manager for Exchange Hosted Filtering and Exchange Hosted Encryption, has worked with Exchange Hosted Services and its customers since 2003. Prior to that, Daniel led research and development and operations teams at iBeam Broadcasting, a streaming media production and hosting company.

  • I love to email my doctor! ...And sometimes he answers me and most times his nurse emails me back!

  • I think we should have it as two way communications.

    Since Docs are busy during their rounds, it would be appropriate for them to answer questions during the time when they are most relax and undisturbed.

    This will actually save everybody's time and we could get personalized attention as well.

  • Great comment , lots of verticals are adopting hosted exchange now days. I also can see a very good match beetween the healthcare sector and the cloud.
