Remote Access to your EMR

   Posted by: dhcsoul   in EMR

As Alan Brookstone notes in a posting on  CanadianEMR,

“one of the great benefits of an EMR is the ability to access the system
remotely from home or from a second practice location. In addition,
remote access allows an EMR vendor to provide system maintenance
without needing physically to be on-site.”

But this of course raises questions about security and confidentiality.  A Virtual Private Network that effectively creates a secure encrypted tunnel is probably the route that should be taken.  Dr. Brookstone’s consideration of this and other related matters can be found at:
