Security

Security is critical for systems that store and retrieve patient information. We are dedicated to a fully secure and HIPAA-compliant system.

eDocList products are HIPAA compliant and meet or exceed HIPAA's Privacy and Security Rule requirements. All transmissions of data (including wireless transmissions) are encrypted using industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption.
We are independently HIPAA audited by a third party and have been found to be 100% compliant across all 54 HITECH citations and 136 audited components. Our systems are designed around the healthcare industry with security in mind ensuring protection of PHI. We are committed to HIPAA compliance and will sign a BAA with all healthcare clients upon request.
We comply with disaster-recovery procedures and perform offsite backup.

Front end software security features are also critical in an environment with PHI:

1. Username and password-protected - By default password length/strength and username length requirements are in place, but can be further customized depending on your insitution's specific requirements.

2. Administrators (in group accounts) have complete control over their users - add, edit or delete users - including auto-deletion after a set time (i.e. end of residency). Administrators are warned when a user's account is about to expire so they can be removed (i.e. when a resident graduates or otherwise leaves the institution). Control whether users can transfer patients to each other. Audit activity of all users; viewing and editing of patient information is time stamped. You have complete log files to audit all aspects of activity by user.

3. Automatic logoff after a set time if the computer is left unattended.

4. All patients lists are backed up for redundancy. Administrators control when patient information is permanently deleted.
