SMS+ offers a suite of benefits to extend SMS into a secure messaging solution. Our dialogue with customers generated feedback that triggered the next step, SMS+ Private Cloud.
Conceived to meet the needs of a Healthcare customer, 2sms has added features to SMS+ to meet the requirements of HIPAA / HITECH for patient confidentiality. The basic requirement is that 2sms and its message delivery partners should at no time 'see' ePHI / PII, and that ePHI / PII should be deleted as soon as the message is transmitted and confirmed as received and read.
