Dolphin Integration Setup

Introduction

This guide describes how to set up and use Dolphin Management’s integration with Protected Trust.

Protected Trust is a 3rd party email security system that when integrated with Dolphin Management, version 8, routes emails through a secure encrypted SMTP gateway. The recipient (patient, doctor, billing party, etc.) receives an email that provides a link to Protected Trust, where they can register for an account (if they don't already have one), enter in verification data, and view the message.

You can customize the security rules email recipients use for verifying their identity to Protected Trust. You can change these rules at any time, but the rules that go with the message stay with that message. In other words, if you send an email using one set of verification rules, then change the rules and send a new message, the new message uses the new rules, and the old message uses the rules in place when that message was sent. The recipient does not need to be aware of this because each message includes verification instructions.

Setting Message Policies

Message policies describe how you want the primary email recipient to verify his or her identity before he or she can read an email sent via Protected Trust.

In Dolphin Management you can set up message policies for the following recipient types: Default, Patient,

Billing Party, and Doctor. You must have at least a Default message policy configured, which Dolphin Setting Message Policies

Management sets to require registration with Protected Trust. If you keep that setting and configure nothing else, all email recipients (patient, billing party, doctor, or unknown) will be required to sign up with Protected Trust (or log in to Protected Trust, if they already have an account) before being able to view the email.

The following sections describe how to set up customized message policies for each recipient type, including Default.

Note: Click the f82db003ba076f7d button if you want to reset the default policy settings for all email recipients (Registration Required).

 

Default

The default recipient type refers to the message policy Protected Trust uses for all recipients other than the primary recipient. Protected Trust also uses the default message policy when it cannot determine whether the email recipient is a patient, a billing party, or a doctor, or if you have not defined any other message policy.

To set the default message policy:

  1. On the Protected Trust Email Options dialog box, Policy by Recipient Type list box, select Default.

  2. Under Verification Options for Each Recipient Type, select one of the following radio buttons:

The practice provides the email recipient with a question and answer that he or she can use to verify his or her identity.

When you select this option, the next three options become active.

Secret Question Based on Recipient’s Stored Data

The only option available is Custom answer.

Secret Question Text
