To get started with the Facebook account authentication feature, just add the Facebook plug-in in the Visual Guard administration consoles.

Abstract

Governments around the world are promoting and standardizing the digitization of patient information in the healthcare sector - developers need to find an easy solution to implement these new standards and ensure that this information stays private and secure.

Specifically, we will look at how the United States has implemented certain regulations that obligate health care actors to add new features to their applications within a certain time frame; this requires a solution that meets standards across the board and is easy to implement even in existing applications.

  • Important features required by these regulations include:
  • Securing data
  • Auditing features
  • Restricting permissions to a need to know basis
  • Modularity

Visual Guard is a comprehensive solution for access control in .NET applications from Novalys. It combines authentication, permissions and auditing features in the same tool. A number of Visual Guard clients are public and private health care actors.

This article demonstrates how Visual Guard has been able to help meet the strict criteria of health regulations in the United States. It will look at why two major health care actors have integrated Visual Guard into their application.

Additionally, your system may need to support certain complex technical specifications that will add to the functional complexity.

During this webinar we will list these points and present a solution that will ensure the success of your project.
This solution will be illustrated with concrete examples and case studies. We will also include information allowing attendees to calculate the ROI of each solution: software and material costs, implementation times, etc…
