Medical Secure Email (Secure Electronic Communication - Provider/Patient)

INTRODUCTION
Patients or a legally authorized representative of a patient may request to communicate with their health care provider/other authorized NIH staff via a new secure email application. This application is called Medical Secure Email and is different than the secure email system you currently use. An online tutorial explaining the secure email process and how to use is available below.

Presently the Medical Secure Email service is the only approved method of communicating electronically with your patient.

Email communication with patients can begin only after the authorized NIH staff initiates the process.
