    We are wanting to send out appointment reminders.  It would have the patient name and address on it and the date the appointment is.  My facilities logo would be on it.    Is this something that would be HIPAA compliant.   Our first thought was a tri-fold with the appointment date on the fold that is tucked inside and then we would tape the ends.   We would like to use appointment post cards instead of a tri-fold page but didn't know if this might be a HIPAA breach.
