"Physicians cannot afford the risk of having their patients' medical records compromised," said SurDoc Co-Founder
A SurLink user can select up to five files from their computer and share by sending a secure URL to recipients. The sender is required to deliver an access PIN generated by SurLink to the recipient in a separate communication for added protection. Once downloaded successfully, the link will no longer be valid, providing bulletproof security during the entire communication.
Healthcare providers benefit from total patient privacy while improving response times through effective and secure collaboration. The outdated practice of sharing medical reports through CDs is time-consuming, and using standard email can be subject to security breaches. Providers can share files to consult with colleagues in real-time and exchange records with insurance companies and imaging centers. Patients experience convenient and hassle-free communication, protection against identity theft and an overall reduction in wait times while the results of a test, for instance, can be instantly and securely shared with their referring physicians.
"Electronic sharing of medical records has brought enormous benefit to the entire healthcare community, yet security breaches are rampant," says
SurMD also offers add-on services that enable patients to archive their detailed medical histories and billing information "virtually" so that they can access it when they relocate, are out of town or visiting different doctors, especially in emergency situations. Physicians also have the option to archive patients' medical histories, test results, medical records and reports.
