10.6 Practice Key Management

In the Practice Key Management window, you can view information used for external study access.  The external ID is visible as well as the Current encryption key.  You may generate a new key from this location.  This is used to encrypt patient information so that this is not visible in direct links.  A valid XoranConnect® login is required to view any patient data.

If using an external connection via an EMR provider, you should provide them both the external ID and the encryption key.  Should either the external ID or the encryption key change at any point in the future, existing links will no longer function, and the EMR provider will need to be updated.
