Imaging manager Sue Woodhouse and Jim Anderson of A Somerville are pictured at the recent install of RadVantage Primera SE medical disc publisher with patient encryption at Spire Fylde Coast Hospital in Blackpool.
The RadVantage Primera SE creates an encrypted password for each patient to AES 128, 192 and 256 as per IHE and Connecting for Health, DICOM encryption requirements.
Connected to the medical server of the SE is a label printer that prints the Unique Patient Password for each patient on a label which can then be sent by fax, email or by post, separately from the CD/DVD, increasing the security of the burned images. “Most of our competitors use the patient ID and/or name as the password,” says A Somerville.
