Burke Primary Care acts as a trusted confidential application service provider dedicated to providing a secure Internet service.
Burke Primary Care employs a high degree of security consciousness. One of Burke Primary Care’s priorities is to make reasonable efforts to ensure data security and be fully compliant with all HIPAA regulations. Access, integrity, availability, ownership, authorization, dependability, authentication, and confidentiality are all major considerations within the Burke Primary Care Security Policy. Unfortunately, the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.
Burke Primary Care upholds its stringent Security Policy with the following security measures:
All communication between you and the Burke Primary Care server is secured by using SSL AES 256-bit encryption. We also encrypt our database with AES 256-bit encryption.
2. Data Security
Our data center is both physically and electronically secured.
5. Login ID and Password
Access to your account is controlled by a login ID and a password, which you chose. We do NOT store a plain text version of your password. Your password is stored using a one-way hash key and salt and verified using the same method every time you login, which means no one at Burke Primary Care knows what password you have chosen. If you ever forget your password, we force you to choose a new one using an email verification check.
Burke Primary Care protects you against accidentally leaving your account active on a computer browser screen. The Burke Primary Care service ends your “session” if you are logged into Burke Primary Care but have not actively used the service for a set period of time. This prevents others from accessing your account when you leave a session and forget to log out.
7. Sensitive Information
Burke Primary Care handles all your health information with respect to its confidentiality and privacy.
8. Data Integrity
Burke Primary Care employs products and technology to help ensure data is available and access to the site continues without interruption.
Our servers are protected by using a firewall system that blocks access by unauthorized parties from accessing your data from the Internet.
