Security Policy Options applies to your account and all practices associated with it. This is important for proper compliance with the patient privacy regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The Desktop Application (PM) has a set of basic defaults that meet the needs of most accounts; however, System Administrators have the option to change the default settings at any time. These options allow you to:

  • Define password requirements  
  • Set user account policy after failed login attempts
  • Configure automatic application locking due to inactivity
  • Specify contact information for lockout or password problems
