PHI and Email
Is it okay to send PHI to a distribution list of individuals (i.e. Chief Administrative Officers, Nursing Directors)?Generally this should not be done. However if a distribution list is used each recipient on the distribution list should have an individual email address. Be careful when sending email containing PHI to a mailing list or to shared email accounts because PHI may be sent to external addresses or individuals who have no need to view the PHI.
