Send-TheDoc™, the First Free HIPAA-Compliant File Delivery Service, Is Now Available for Dental Professionals and Patients

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2014) - Send-TheDoc™ has developed a HIPAA-compliant cloud-based service that now makes it simple for over 120,000 dental offices nationwide to send and receive protected health information. Patients can also download and submit forms prior to their visit, which provides the offices extra time to devote to patient care.

Send-TheDoc™ is easy to use and completely free thanks to the sponsorship of dental industry vendors. Since April 2014, dentists in 25 states across the country are using Send-TheDoc™ to electronically and securely send patient forms, x-rays, and other documents with protected health information. "You have made this PERFECT. It is now exactly as I would have designed it myself. And thank you for providing this amazing free service for your colleagues!" says Dr. Mark Levy, a dentist from Des Plaines, IL.

In 2013 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) amended the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) to "further protect patient privacy and safeguard patients' health information in an ever expanding digital age," according to then-HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Dimitris Papageorgiou, President of Send-TheDoc™, explains, "There are still a significant number of dental practices nationwide that are struggling with the 2013 Omnibus rule compliance. Our mission with Send-TheDoc™ is quite simple. We set out to create the first entirely free, HIPAA-compliant, file delivery service that saves doctors, employees, and patients time and money."

Mr. Papageorgiou and a panel of dental professionals will host a national webinar sponsored by Vumedi on October 30th at 8:00pm EDT titled "Communications and HIPAA: What every dentist should know." Participants are eligible for continuing education (CE) credits upon completion.
