Clinical photos and chat conversations are automatically synced to healthcare’s most secure cloud, NorthCloud, and are transmitted with state-of-the-art encryption. In the event your phone is stolen or you wish to no longer use your device, you can port your account to a new device and wipe the original phone clean of any sensitive data.
Encrypted data and NorthCloud
In most provinces, healthcare professionals are required to notify individuals at the first reasonable opportunity in the event of theft or loss of a mobile device that contains their health information. With ShareSmart, you do not have to notify each of your patients as all data is encrypted and stored remotely on NorthCloud. In the case that your mobile phone hasn’t been connected to the internet since taking in patient information, ShareSmart’s strong encryption ensures that there is no actual loss of information – a position that has been put forward by the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA).
ShareSmart users are verified healthcare professionals, providing for an additional layer of security for your sensitive patient information.
Segregation of personal and professional activity
Medical photos and chat conversations with healthcare colleagues are segregated from the phone’s native and tertiary photo albums, chat programs and storage to ensure that sensitive patient information is not inadvertently distributed or shown to an unauthorized individual. No more mixing of personal and professional photos.
