10. How do I use Secure Email?


Type [secure] in the Subject line of a message to ensure that the message will be sent securely. Be advised the information in the subject line will not be encrypted - only the information in the body of the email is. Your subject line should not include any PHI.

What is Secure Email?

SecureEmail allows HSC users to encrypt Sensitive Information sent to recipients outside of the campus email system. Examples of messages that should be encrypted include:

  • OU healthcare billing communications with outside agencies.
  • Communications between OUHSC and research agencies (FDA, NIH) that include participant information
  • Communications that include patient info
