We can’t stress enough how important security is in everything we do at Kipu. To sustain a highly secure, HIPAA compliant, cloud based, easy to use EMR that let’s you log in from virtually any Internet enabled device, you have to invest in some of the most sophisticated technologies.
That’s why we’ve invested heavily in CAS Servers.
You might be thinking, “What in the world is a CAS Server?” That’s probably a good thing if you don’t know about CAS servers. You’re worried about running a treatment center and helping to treat addicts and set them on their path to long term recovery. But at Kipu, we sweat all the little details…especially when it comes to security and usability. We worry about extreme security so you can focus on your patients and trust Kipu to do all the heavy security lifting.
In a nutshell, a CAS Server or Central Authentication Server is a single log-in protocol for Internet use. A CAS Server allows a user to access multiple applications by providing the user login and password credentials just once. Additionally, a CAS Server allows authorized web applications to authenticate specific users while keeping the user’s security credentials private.
In its simplest form, a CAS Server lets you and your delegates, access Kipu securely. But it’s a whole lot more than a secure login server. It also allows you to delegate access to Gold Certified Billers and partner Labs securely. For example, some treatment centers with inferior security protocols, may give a biller a user login to get into their system. That login may give the user full access to all the patient records. That can be a significant violation. With our CAS Servers, a Gold Certified Biller is granted access one time and they only gain access to the required areas necessary for Verification of Benefits, Billing, and/or update lab results.
Again, we sweat the security details so you don’t have to. You take care of your patients with the best EMR for addiction treatment centers. We make sure it works securely, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. (366 days ever 4th year…yes, we sweat those details, too.)
