EHR Software and Cloud Security: It’s Important
As you compare EHR software, there are many details that deserve your full attention.
Like most, you’ll pay most attention to the available features and price. While both of these details are important, you don’t want to overlook one other: security.
In today’s day and age, security is more important than ever before. Unfortunately, as you probably know, organizations small and large are targeted by hackers.
With this in mind, some medical practices never make the change from their “old school paper system” to electronic health records. While there’s nothing wrong with being concerned about security, don’t forget this: the best providers take this extremely seriously.
For example, at ZenCharts, we believe in the power and effectiveness of cloud security.
Here’s what this means to us:
- Every customer’s data is isolated in a secure, dedicated server.
- All data is stored on eight RAID disks, meaning that even if a disk is lost the data is still secure.
- Real-time protection against attacks from DOS applications.
- Detection and filtering of viruses in network activity.
- Detection of spyware, malware, and adware.
In other words, our approach to cloud security is meant to give our customers peace of mind. We are also independently audited for penetration testing and social engineering every 6 months.
Here’s an excerpt from our website that will give you a greater sense of our devotion to providing the best security in the industry:
“We understand how important all data is as it relates to program goals, effectiveness, and insurance reimbursement. For that reason, our development team continues to stay on top of the latest security trends to ensure the privacy of your data, along with those that you serve.”
When the time comes to implement EHR software, don’t hesitate to learn more about the security features offered by each provider. If this is important to you – and it should be – ZenCharts has you covered!
