How to get away with emailing really large files

By Mark Allsop on April 20, 2018

Over the years, I've had many clients complain about emails not being delivered because of file size limitations.  Yes, that 100 page PowerPoint presentation is important, but most mail servers won't accept messages larger than 25mb.  Even if your mail server allows you to send messages that are larger than 25mb, if the recipient's mail server caps out at 25mb, then your 26mb message will not be delivered.  But why send the email as an attachment to begin with?  I've been using OneDrive with Office 365 for only a few months, but I can tell you with all honesty, I will never go back to sending attachments through email again.

What to Do If You Find Someone Else’s Health Information (PHI)

By Mark Allsop on January 16, 2017

My first data breach went like this: In the early 2000s, a young accountant was flying back to the home office after working several days onsite at a year-end audit. She had brought along two compact discs, one loaded with detailed employee information and the other loaded with her favorite songs. Thinking it was her tunes, she put the CD with the employee data in the seat pocket in front of her.  She forgot about it until she was out of the terminal. She rushed back in, worked with the airline to try to track down the CD, but the cleaning crew was too efficient. It was gone.

Simple Email Encryption for Dentrix Users

By Mark Allsop on October 9, 2015

Setting up a compliant email solution has never been easier for Dentrix users. Protected Trust, a Dentrix Development Vendor, offers an email encryption solution that allows dental practices to send secure messages that help them meet the HIPAA compliance regulations. The best part is the workflow is simple and recipients can view the message (and reply securely), without being required to set up an account. Protected Trust integrates with Dentrix, so no need to set up a new email account and patient records remain secure within the Dentrix software and the encrypted message.
