MANDATORY DISCLOSURE LANGUAGE
Costs or Fees
This product can be hosted either on-premises or in the cloud (hosted by Medisolv); when hosted in the cloud, additional hosting fees may apply.
This product, when digitally integrated with EMR (Electronic Medical Record) systems, requires access to the EMR data system(s), most frequently a primary, secondary, or tertiary database and/or various API endpoints.
Additional fees may apply in cases where the EMR charges for the required access; in these cases, Medisolv passes the EMR fee through to the client as part of the contractual service.
170.315(d)(12) and 170.31S(d)(13) requires the use of a properly setup directory server. On-Premise installations require the use of Microsoft Active Directory (client control), and proper encryption and MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) support is fully available, provided the client has it properly configured within their Active Directory installation. Cloud installations require the use of either Microsoft Azure Active Directory B2C (Medisolv control), or SAML/SSO bindings to client local directory systems (client control). Medisolv offers MFA when using Microsoft Azure Active Directory B2C upon client request (not enabled by default), and it requires the use of a cell phone by end-users to receive the token(s). When using SSO/SAML, encryption and MFA are optionally supported; support requires that the client/hosting entity configure their directory system for encryption and MFA.
Multi-Factor-Authentication (MFA) Use-Cases
For Azure B2C integration options, MFA is handled during centralized login and authentication, and is not implemented on a per-user basis; it is either on for all users, or off for all users, within a single instance of the Encor-E software product.
For SSO/SAML hosting options, it is in the purview of the client/directory-control-officer to dictate how MFA is applied. SSO/SAML uses the client directory setup, including all MFA options, and can (at the client's decision) be segregated on a per-user basis. Encor-E does not make any decisions regarding MFA in an SSO/SAML environment, so all control resides with the directory-controller regarding whom, how frequently, and in what manner MFA is applied to user authentication.
For on-premises hosting options, MFA is offered using Microsoft Active Directory, and it is in the purview of the client/directory-control-officer to dictate how MFA is applied. On-Premise's hosting uses the client directory setup, including all MFA options, and can (at the client's decision} be segregated on a per-user basis. Encor-E does not make any decisions regarding MFA in an on-premises environment, so all control resides with the directory controller regarding whom, how frequently, and in what manner MFA is applied to user authentication.
