Monday, February 3rd, 2014

When health care organizations review their operations to see where electronic protected health information (ePHI) is being saved, transmitted, and viewed, a great deal of time is spent on the obvious candidates: email, chat, stored files, and health records, etc.

Many overlook the fact that ePHI can be embedded in Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks.  Consider for example:

Apple iOS7 supports Automatic Notes Synchronization

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

iPhone 4Apple is releasing iOS7 for all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices on September 18th.  Lost among the hype of this extremely updated version of the Apple mobile operating system is the fact that Apple mobile devices will support synchronization of “Notes” via Exchange ActiveSync.

This means that LuxSci customers using MobileSync to real-time push synchronization of email, calendars, tasks, and contacts, can now also have real-time push synchronization of the “Notes” in their mobile device to the Notes WebAides in their LuxSci web interface.

Keep Everything in Sync with Apple iOS5 and LuxSci MobileSync

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Apple iOS v5 for iPad and iPhone is out!  iCloud is great, allowing easy synchronization of your Apple devices and limited synch with Outlook.

For easy synchronization of your iPhone, iPad, and all other mobile devices (i.e. Blackberry, Android, Windows Mobile) and LuxSci’s WebAide collaboration tools (Tasks / Calendars / Contacts), LuxSci MobileSync is still the best way to go.

Apple iOS5 with LuxSci Mobile Sync:

  • Still supports multiple calendar and contact list synchronizations
  • Still supports mail synchronization, Push email, and secure sending
  • New – Supports automatic synchronization of iOS “Reminders” with WebAide Task Lists
  • New – Create new email folders from the Mail application
  • New – Calendar events now support separate time zones for each event, making collaboration with folks in differing time zones much easier.
  • New – Flag Support. The “Flagged” status of email messages now synchronizes
  • New – Offline email move and delete.  If you move or delete mail while disconnected, these operations will now be performed when your device reconnects
  • Updated – Improves notification to users of new mail and other items
  • Updated – Server-side email folder searching has been improved.

Additionally, with LuxSci WebAideSync, you can also have your Calendars/Tasks/Contacts automatically synchronized with Microsoft Outlook as well.

 

Protect your mobile data from theft with “Remote Wipe”

Friday, January 14th, 2011

If your mobile device (e.g., iPad or Blackberry) is lost or stolen, then you have no control over who may gain access to:

  • Viewing existing and new email messages
  • All of your contacts
  • Your calendar appointments
  • Sending email as you
  • and more…

This is pretty serious, especially for folks who are subject to regulations and compliance laws.

For example, if a Nurse, using an iPad to manage patient appointments or to communicate via email with remote doctors, were to lose that iPad and it were to be accessed by someone else, then that may become a HIPAA “breach” (an unauthorized disclosure of protected health information) and the Nurse’s organization may be subject to stiff monetary fines and bad publicity.
