Microsoft Outlook to be the only mobile app for Beaumont email
Whether you currently check your Beaumont email on your mobile device or you’re considering adding it, this message affects you.
Due to its ability to protect patient and Beaumont data, the Microsoft Outlook app will be the only mobile program used to access Beaumont email. Soon, regular or “native” email apps on iPhones, iPads, and Android devices will no longer be able to access Beaumont email. Dr. Paras Khandhar, Beaumont’s lead inpatient physician informaticist, discussed this change in a recent Doc Talks video interview.

We use your Beaumont email because it is a secure and well-maintained email service using Outlook. Personal email addresses are more vulnerable to cyberattacks and the use of Beaumont email will provide uniformity and consistency as well as the assurance that you are receiving important communications.
We understand that many of you do not use your Beaumont email because you have had a bad experience in the past with receiving too many non-work-related messages. Our IT team is working to block unrelated communications and create firewalls to keep out unnecessary messaging. And, with security of email of vital importance, Beaumont’s IT team works diligently to provide as secure a system as possible.
We appreciate your patience and feedback as we continue to improve this process daily. Please send any feedback you may have to email@example.com
