Secure Messaging Video: The Final Product
We released our secure text messaging product last week and our secure messaging video is finally complete! In this video we exemplify the importance of secure messaging and the consequences associated with underestimating its relevance.

It has been a few months since the pMD team and Belljar first started brainstorming ideas for the video. We had many long discussions as to what we wanted it to look like, what we wanted it to sound like, and even what we wanted it to feel like. There was a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that went into this messaging video, but good tears, not bad ones.

Throughout our creation process, there were plenty of ideas that led to hours of meetings and edits. At one point in our process, we had a lengthy conversation about our character, Dr. Fast Thumbs’, interaction with his patient.

There were R-rated variations of the interaction showing the patient in a vulnerable position that made any woman and most men who saw it cringe. We decided that we needed to tone it a down and were presented with a new version. But with the new G-rated version, we barely saw the patient, and there wasn’t much context as to the “sensitive patient information” that was being shared by Dr. Fast Thumbs. After another discussion, we finalized the scene somewhere between a PG and PG-13 rating, showing the patient head on, but above the patient's knees.

Whether it was the style of background music or the actions of our characters, we broke down each others’ ideas and created a cohesive and comprehensive story that explains what secure messaging means for health care practices. Not everyone may understand the significance of secure messaging, but to people in the medical field, they either know how serious it is, or they will after watching our segment. By sending unencrypted messages, you open yourself up to the possibilities of fines, lawsuits, and even jail time.

We hope that our secure text messaging video helps the medical world understand why encryption and HIPAA compliance is important. Without further ado, enjoy the video!
