Frequently Asked Questions

Does patient information reside on this system? Is it secure?

DISCO® acts just like your department’s paper printer on the hospital network. Thus, no confidential patient records are saved, nor accessible on the DISCO® system, after CD production is completed.

Is there any flexibility when assigning encryption codes and passwords?

DISCO® has the option of creating discs using a simple password, or no password at all. Preferences and permissions can be set up system-wide, or for an individual user or administrator.

Does the software need to be installed on my EMR? On my network?

DISCO® is simply another network printer and operates completely independent from your hospital EMR, HIS, or RIS System.

Will DISCO® work with my EMR?

DISCO® resides on your hospital network as a “network printer.” DISCO® will work with any EMR that has the ability to print files.

We are already burning CD’s with our EMR, why would we need DISCO®?

While most EMRs have the ability to manually burn and some can encrypt individual CD’s, nothing is automated. Users must load, burn, encrypt and label discs by hand – creating potential liability due to human error Additionally, there is no central database that tracks all of the discs created (who processed, when, how many, etc.) – also a potential liability. DISCO® does all of the burning, encrypting, HIPAA tracking, and logging of each disc created, within its own database.

We get a lot of RAC Audit Requests. How does DISCO® handle these types of requests?

Users simply select multiple patient files to be burned to DISCO®. There is no limit to the number or size of files that can be burned to an encrypted CD. For very large files, DISCO® has the option to burn to DVD.

What happens if the patient forgets or loses the encryption code?

All encryption codes are tracked in the DISCO® database. A very simple query can pull up the encryption code for a previously
burned CD and re-e-mailed or printed for a recipient.

We use paper because most of our patients are seniors; they are not tech-savvy enough to use a CD?

Though many patients that request medical records are seniors, it is usually the caregiver that handles these issues with a senior patient. Recent census studies show that over 90% of households in the US own a computer. Caregivers will appreciate receiving all the records in one compact disc and being able to get multiple copies inexpensively.

How does the encryption code get to the recipient?

Passwords/encryption codes are sent to the recipient of the disc either by printing & mailing or e-mailing via Outlook. Triggers
to print/e-mail the password are activated during the process of burning the CD.

How do I justify the cost of this system?

Not only does DISCO® save money in printing and paper costs, but it streamlines your workflow, so your staff’s time can be allocated to other tasks. By automating the process, DISCO® takes away potential liability by eliminating human error.
