The CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2020

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule is a mouthful, but it’s also an important step for improving how health data is accessed and shared. While the rule may be beneficial in certain ways, it’s not without its risks. It opens up the door for patient data to be shared with third-party app developers outside of the tight confines of HIPAA regulations, which could lead to more breaches of sensitive data.

API Enhancements for DKIM Automation

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020

DKIM, Domain Keys identified Mail, is a critical component to ensuring good INBOX delivery of email messages for day-to-day email, email marketing, and transactional email.  DKIM digitally signs outbound email so that the message recipients can verify that the messages originated from email servers authorized to send email from the sender.  I.e., it helps recipients identify and discard forged and fraudulent email messages while keeping legitimate ones.

API Enhancements for DKIM

In order to use DKIM with LuxSci, customers need to:

  1. Have LuxSci generate keys for each sending domain
  2. Update the DNS settings for each domain to publish the DKIM public key.

See LuxSci’s Help for our general DKIM setup instructions for more details.  These steps are pretty quick and easy, unless you have a large number of domains that you are sending email from.

To help such customers automate their workflow and manage their domains, LuxSci’s API has been augmented to enable management of DKIM keys for LuxSci customers.  The API now permits:

  1. Creation of new DKIM keys for new domains.
  2. Downloading the DKIM information needed for the DNS configuration.
  3. Deletion of DKIM keys for domains no longer in use.

Together with LuxSci’s other API endpoints, LuxSci customers can automate the addition and deletion of domains, email aliases, users, and now DKIM settings.  LuxSci is committed to continually expanding its API capabilities to enable and support automated workflows and processes.

An extremely common and revenue-driving workflow, from a marketing and engagement perspective, is to have the contact information of the people who fill out your online forms automatically added to your marketing database. Such an integration saves time, by not requiring manual data entry steps, and speeds your marketing automation processes along.

Secure Form to Secure Email Marketing Integration

This automated connection is now available for your LuxSci Secure Forms; after a license upgrade, they can now be automatically integrated with your LuxSci Secure Marketing platform.  This integration enables new contacts to be automatically created in your Secure Marketing instance from selected Secure Form posts.  You can then leverage Secure Marketing to send automated drip campaigns to these contacts, send them group mailings, and more.

Email Templates for SMTP and API Secure Email Sending

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

Server-side email templates that can be utilized when sending email messages through LuxSci’s APIs and LuxSci’s SMTP services are now available.  In particular, users can:

  1. Create and manage up to 100 templates per user through LuxSci’s web site or via API commands.
    1. Templates can not only define the subject and bodies of the messages that use them, they can also control how these messages will be encrypted (or not).
  2. Send messages using templates via API commands or SMTP — so message content can be retrieved from the server-side templates rather than sent with every message
  3. Use dynamic place holders so the template content can be customized on a per-message basis (i.e., like “mail merge”).
  4. Send unique per-message attachments that will be attached to the template-derived messages.

That’s it — templates made simple.
