When a Provider leaves your Practice or Agency

securityWhen someone in your practice or agency terminates employment or contractual obligations, and you no longer want them to have access to patient and provider records, it’s important to make the provider/user inactive in your software.

If you are a Cloud customer, contact our Sales Department as soon as possible to have Cloud credentials deleted for terminated individuals. Inactivating or disabling credentials for terminated providers and office personnel will lock them out of the system and help to prevent breaches. If the individual had e-Prescribing rights, call DocuTrac to disable their account so they can no longer prescribe medications through your practice or agency.

LockoutAdditionally, if the terminated individual has access to other logon credentials, such as other active providers or office assistants, then those passwords will need to be changed in order to assure the lock out of unauthorized individuals. See the section below on the repercussions of failing to terminate and monitor users’ rights of access as required by HIPAA rules.

Call DocuTrac Sales at 800-850-8510 to have Cloud and e-Prescribing accounts disabled.
