It is the sender’s responsibility to ensure the email is encrypted before being transmitted over the public Internet. It should be noted that personal webmail accounts such as Google, Yahoo, Hotmail and Live mail do not encrypt email. It is understood that non encrypted email containing patient data breaches data protection law.
If the sender has any doubt in this regard he/she should refer to their own ICT department. The hospital’s email system is encryption enabled. Organisations which exchange email with AMNCH can do so by “SMTP over TLS” encryption. This means that the sending organisation’s email server communicates with the AMNCH email system provided it supports “SMTP over TLS”.
