Security, Identity and EHR, HIE, eRx?

Learning and making needed changes to adopt new technology, ensuring security and compliance to one of the most heavily-regulated industries is a complex matter.

To help combat identity theft and help enable secure access to digitized health information, Verizon announced a suite of new features for its healthcare identity services.  Verizon Universal Identity Services-Healthcare now supports additional healthcare identity standards for accessing EHRs and health information exchanges, as well as credentials for e-prescribing, including prescriptions for controlled substances; and use of smartphones and tablets to authenticate identity.

The multi-factored credentials delivered by the service are designed to meet the Level 3 authentication requirements created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
