Privacy and Security Policy

At OncoPrescribe, we recognize that you may be entering extremely sensitive patient and prescription data into the system and we have designed the software to provide that information as securely as possible.

We made a decision early on that no Patient or Prescription data would ever be stored by OncoPrescribe. The only appropriate place to maintain patient information is in your practice’s files (either hard copies or electronic) – or on the patient’s own, personal Electronic Health Record account.

Consider some historical perspective: In the early days of E-Commerce on the internet, many users worried about entering a credit card number on the internet. Yet time has shown that Internet Transactions are BY FAR the most secure way of using a credit card for a purchase. Virtually all credit card transactions – once they are processed – immediately delete the card information from the E-Commerce site, unless you specifically ask to save the data.

At OncoPrescribe, we go a step further – all prescription information is immediately deleted from memory once you print and go to the next prescription OR as soon as you logout. We will warn you if you are in the middle of a prescription and you are about the delete the data, but once it’s gone, it’s gone.

In addition to our general philosophy on privacy and security (we don’t store anything about Patients on our system) we also utilize a number of “best practices” for maintaining secure and private data:

  • We use SSL security to protect all data transmitted over the internet
  • Your login will time out if you haven’t used it for a specific period
  • Your web browser should not maintain any data from a previous session (all entered items should be cleared)

OncoPrescribe NEVER stores any prescription data on our servers. Once you export back to your system, the information is no longer available at OncoPrescribe.

OncoPrescribe will not be storing any patient related data. If you write a new cycle, or new delivery phase for an existing regimen, that data will not be saved after printing unless you EXPORT the data back to your systems.

Information that we collect and store:

  • Your login and password information - to maintain your rights to use OncoPrescribe, as well as security
  • We keep GENERAL statistics about the number of prescriptions written, by diagnosis and by regimen, however,
  • There is NOT any record kept of the prescriptions written by a specific practice or a specific physician. So,
  • Your individual history of writing prescriptions is not known and stored by OncoPrescribe.
