Encrypted e-mail with Tulane Medical School

Tulane Medical Center and Tulane University are pleased to announce that we have worked out technical  details, and now both parties are able to send protected patient data in emails between the two entities, without using the previously stated encryption procedures.

Rest assured that your e-mail is encrypted/protected, but only between and e-mail addresses.  Messages containing protected health information, sent to any other external e-mail addresses must continue to be encrypted by the user.
