I'm looking for some input on a scenario that was recently presented. To wit...

What are the ramifications relative to HIPAA Privacy where communications containing 
PHI to alphanumeric pagers held by remote nursing staff are initiated via internet 
e-mail?

For example, a patient coordinator sends an e-mail containing PHI (say patient name & 
address) to a nurse's pager or cell phone screen through a third party such as AT&T, 
Skypage, Arch Wireless, etc.

Thoughts?

Thank you in advance,
Paul Weber
