Healthlink has established widespread trust throughout the health sector. Many organisations come to Healthlink to have their applications hosted in HealthLink’s managed data centres.
The hosting of an application requires provision of virtual services, storage, backup and network access. Application hosting is often an additional service, provided in conjunction with other services such as B2B gateways, support services or electronic referral systems.
Appropriate management of a practice's computer infrastructure is a vital building block of a robust and reliable eHealth system. With many practices permanently connected to the Internet, their electronic medical records and other computerised systems are under constant threat from external attack.
HealthLink’s SecurIT aims to remove the risk of an inappropriate access to a medical practice’s data and clinical applications. SecurIT enables a practice's doctors and practice personnel to securely access their own computer systems from any remote location or PC.
Large scale customers such as New Zealand Ministry of Health, ACC and State Health Departments aim to centralise management and security of their systems including the way in which they utilise HealthLink’s products and services.
HealthLink’s enterprise offerings make use of ‘Gateways’ that have been developed in line with the organisation’s protocols and designed in accordance with best practice for the secure transfer of and access to personal health information.
Electronic communications via the Internet necessitates a highly disciplined approach to security, especially when it comes to the exchange of personal health information.
HL Identity is concerned with the authentication of people, servers and hardware devices. Positive identification is an essential part of ensuring certainty of internet security. People or end points of a service need to know that they are connecting with a verified identity.
