Secure Universal Message Services (SUMS) for healthcare providers. A cloud-based platform designed to work as easily as email. by allowing providers to exchange clinical information in a secure, HIPAA-compliant manner through any web browser.
With SUMS, physicians, nurses, and other caregivers can send text-based messages and add attachments such as dictation files, radiology images, and lab results in a variety of file formats. Clinical Document Architecture (CDA), Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs), and HL7 files are all supported. EHR vendors will have access to API kits for integration with their products, as well.
Two-factor authentication adds a comforting layer of security to the system, and SUMS offers additional identity-proofing before allowing users to send the data, which is encrypted and recorded in electronic activity logs. SUMS will send information but isn't designed to store it. Doctors receive notification of a new message by text message, phone, or through email, and they can then log in to the browser-based portal and retrieve their communication.
