What is Data Management/Security?
Secure transmission of your data is one of our highest priorities. We have two programs available for transmittal of your screening data. All data is transferred securely, ensuring the confidentiality of personal health information. Personal Health Information (PHI) is never stored on our tablet devices and all paper copies are securely managed by the Lead Screener. When we give out screening results to the participants, we do not have any personal information listed on the pamphlet. Also, if requested we can transfer biometric data to a third-party vendor.
Our Data Manager will contact your organization and agree on a file format, a secure method for transferring the data, and an upload schedule. Each one of the staff members who comes in contact with any patient data must sign a confidentiality agreement as a condition of employment (copy available upon request). To ensure accuracy of the screening data, AHS uses a three-point data match which is: First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth and/or Unique ID.
