The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) has transitioned to eRecord, a fully integrated electronic health record system. eRecord has dramatically changed and streamlined the way we work in our hospitals and outpatient clinics, improving patient safety and quality of care, and serving as an important way to connect with our community providers.
Important Security Requirement
"Two-Factor Authentication" is a requirement for all URMC faculty, staff, vendors, and community partners like yourself to ensure the privacy of patient information. Like most institutions in America, we are experiencing increasing and persistent attacks on our secure network. More sophisticated methods are needed to verify the identity of those logging into our clinical systems to keep all of our information safe and secure.
You and your staff will need to verify your identity a second time when you access ePartner or eRecord, or when you connect to the URMC network through VPN. This two-factor authentication technology is very similar to that used by banking and financial institutions, where you enroll a device (mobile phone, landline phone, tablet) and indicate a method to verify your identity (phone call, text message, or through a smartphone app). Enrollment is required to ensure uninterrupted access to ePartner or eRecord.
