With new HIPAA requirements and with the electronic transfer of sensitive patient information imminent, security is a top Priority at Medescribe.

Medescribe employs an innovative strategy to deploy a system of data transfer over complex networks with various levels of authentication to link medical, management entities, hospitals, and physician practices securely. To be more specific, Virtual Private Networks (VPN) is used to interconnect the various nodes of the system.

The combination of these solutions creates private, encrypted connections through the Internet for secure transfer of confidential patient data. Router and Firewall: Access requests must filter through a router and firewall before they are permitted to reach the systems and server. A router, a piece of hardware, works in conjunction with the firewall, a piece of software, to block and direct traffic coming to the server. The configuration begins by disallowing ALL traffic and then opens holes only when necessary to process acceptable data requests.

Employee Policy: We have procedures and security levels that limit employee access to personally identifiable information to those with a business reason to know such information. At Medescribe’s monthly staff meetings, we educate our employees about the importance of confidentiality and client privacy through our operating procedures, training programs, and policies on ethics.
