29 Nov How to protect your clinical notes from hackers
In the digital age, medical professionals are increasingly turning to the use of clinical note taking software for the recording and storage of patient data. While this provides a great benefit in terms of ease of use and accuracy of data, it also presents a unique cybersecurity challenge.
Cyber criminals are increasingly targeting healthcare organisations, as they possess a wealth of sensitive personal data – including medical records that can be illegally monetised.
Medical records contain sensitive information, including personal health details, financial information, and social security numbers. This data is highly attractive to hackers, and as such, it is crucial that healthcare organisations have the necessary cybersecurity measures in place to protect their patients’ data.
At Cliniknote, we understand the importance of protecting our customers’ data, and that’s why we’ve implemented the most robust security measures available.
Our cloud-based application is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), one of the most secure and reliable cloud infrastructure providers in the world.
With the rising popularity of cloud-based clinical notes, many practitioners worry about their data being stored in the cloud. However, Amazon’s secure servers present a great solution for storing medical data.
Medical organisations can use the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) service to securely store and control access to data. IAM enables organisations to create user accounts, assign permissions, and define access policies that control access to data and services. IAM also allows organisations to encrypt data and use multi-factor authentication to help protect sensitive information.
- AWS also provides the Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) to securely store medical data. S3 provides encryption and access control features, as well as backup and archiving capabilities, to help protect and store medical data.
- Medical organisations can also use the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) to create virtual servers and storage systems to host their medical data. EC2 provides scalability to meet the demands of medical data storage and processing.
- Medical organisations can use the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to securely connect their servers and storage systems to the internet. VPC provides an isolated, secure environment where organisations can securely store and access their data over the internet. VPC also provides encryption, firewalls, and other security features to help protect medical data.
- Finally, medical organisations can use the Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) to securely store and access medical data. RDS provides features such as encryption, backup, and recovery capabilities to help protect medical data. RDS also provides access control and auditing capabilities, as well as the ability to replicate data across multiple availability zones for added redundancy.
At Cliniknote, we take the security of our customers’ data very seriously and strive to provide the highest level of protection available. That’s why we have also implemented a number of other security measures to ensure that our customers’ data remains secure and confidential.
- two-factor authentication,
- role-based access control,
- audit logging, and
- regular security scans.
With our robust security measures in place, medical professionals can rest assured that their data is safe and secure.
Using Cliniknote for clinical note taking is ideal for medical professionals who are looking for a secure and efficient way to store and share patient data.
The world of healthcare is rapidly changing as technology advances, and the need for secure data storage and access is becoming increasingly important.
By leveraging the services offered by AWS, medical organisations can securely store and access their data in the cloud. Cliniknote provides scalability, availability, and security to help organisations securely store and access their medical data remotely.
