NATICK, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 1, 2013) - Interbit Data, a leading provider of software and services connecting people with information for more efficient healthcare, today announced the latest release of NetSafe, its business continuance and downtime protection software. Available as a virtualized solution, this NetSafe upgrade offers Microsoft Active Directory support, the ability to process additional data formats, and a Web client. NetSafe automatically distributes up-to-date patient information from healthcare information systems (HCIS) to local computers across a healthcare facility, enabling uninterrupted access to critical data during a system or network downtime.
The Active Directory integration simplifies secure access to NetSafe. Clinicians can now login to the NetSafe Client using the computer login account they normally use for accessing their organization's computers. The NetSafe Administrator can also specify Client Login Backup accounts that can be used to access NetSafe Clients in the event connectivity to the Active Directory server is lost.
Through the integration of new tools, NetSafe expands the types of report formats it can process, including the ability to process files via optical character recognition (OCR).
The new NetSafe Web Client provides access to patient records locally or in the cloud, enabling users of tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices to access critical data wirelessly in the event that power as well as systems and wired networks experience an outage. The NetSafe Web Client is an additional mechanism for accessing NetSafe's distributed reports, allowing clinicians the ease of retrieving patient data in the cloud as well as on local workstations.
"During a system failure or downtime, the critical units across a healthcare facility need to maintain easy and reliable access to the most up-to-date information to ensure the timely delivery of patient care," said Arthur Young, president of Interbit Data. "With this latest NetSafe upgrade, we've continued our focus on providing the capabilities that will allow clinicians to overcome obstacles in accessing patient information when they need it."
NetSafe automatically distributes encrypted up-to-date patient information, such as electronic medication administration records (eMARs), Master Patient indexes, Blood Bank Transfusion logs and other critical information from an organization's HCIS to local computers in patient care areas. By enabling 24/7 access to critical patient information, NetSafe ensures that healthcare facilities maintain uninterrupted patient care during a system or network downtime.
