RIS/PACS managers Katie Brooke and Maxine Harrison are pictured at the installation of a RadVantage Primera SE Medical Disc Publisher with Unique Patient Encryption at Barnsley NHS Foundation Trust. It was installed by A Somerville Limited, who have exclusive rights for the system.
The RadVantage Primera SE creates a unique patient encrypted password for each patient to AES 128, 192 and 256 as per IHE and Connecting for Health, Dicom encryption requirements and also complies with DSCN.
Connected to the medical server of the SE is a printer that prints the unique password for each patient on a label which can then be sent by fax, email or post, separately from the CD/DVD, increasing the security of the burned images. “Most competitors use the patient ID and or name as the password,” says A Somerville.
Maxine said that this was one of the reasons Barnsley chose the RadVantage Primera SE. “There was no extra cost for the encryption solution and the SE was very competitively priced.”
