hi healthcare/finance companies, please stop making Secure Message Portals that are just email but worse, thanks
@emily And if you can't do that, could you at least put it on a subdomain of your primary domain rather than sticking it on a domain like TotallyLegitPatientPortalForYourFamilyDoctor dot biz
@emily they have to. I suspect it would be a HIPAA violation for healthcare companies in the US to use email. And it would be a fraud good mine if finance companies communicated by email. Until we get an end-to-end secure messaging mechanism in common use (which we won't), they are going to have to rely on hosted apps. I think the fight is to get them to make the messaging systems better.
@oh_that_courtney then *fix email*, dammit, stop doing the "there are now 18 competing standards" thing
