Superintendent MRI radiographer David Hillier, Angela Darbon and Gill Mills of customer services are pictured at the recent install of a RadVantage Primera SE medical disc publisher with Unique patient encryption at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital in Surrey.
It was installed by A Somerville Limited, who have exclusive rights for Unique patient encryption.
The Primera SE creates a unique patient encrypted password for each patient to AES 128, 192 and 256 as per IHE and Connecting for Health, plus Dicom encryption requirements and it also complies with DSCN.
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 to increase the security of the burned images. “Most competitors use the patient ID and/or name as the password,” says A Somerville.
