Noah System 4.9.1 is now available! Click here to download.
HIMSA is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Noah System 4.9.
The focus of Noah System 4.9 is patient data security.
In the last few years, data protection has become a hot topic worldwide. For hearing care businesses, this has meant increased regulation to ensure the protection of sensitive patient data.
And for European hearing care professionals, starting in May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect, and businesses based in the European Union (EU) will be required to support these regulations when handling patient data.
While most of the tools necessary for GDPR compliance for Noah data already exist in the current Noah System version, additional features have been added in Noah 4.9 to help ensure that data security tools are as complete and intuitive as possible. This includes the following new security options:
• Optional Active Directory Integration (Windows) login to better control access to Noah System data
• Encryption option for your Noah database
• The ability to encrypt and password protect Noah exports
• Better control of your Noah activity logs
Although the GDPR regulations specially apply to the EU, these improved features can be useful to any hearing care business to achieve their businesses security goals.
