PHI and Paging
What type of patient information may I include in a text page?Only use the minimum amount of information necessary to carrying out the purpose of the text page. For patient care purposes, use text paging for urgent notifications and not a replacement for phone conversations. Avoid using a patient’s first and last name, diagnostic information and specific clinical data. Instead you should use a patient’s medical record number, initials, and room number.
