SutureSign Signature Authentication & Security



SutureSign Signature Authentication & Security
 
In compliance with Medicare regulations, SutureSign requires unique user authentication and employs security safeguards to ensure integrity of electronic signatures applied using SutureSign software. Each user agrees to abide by the User Agreement prior to using the software.

User Authentication

• Each user is authenticated with a unique username and password prior to gaining access to the system.
• It is SutureSign’s policy that all users retain their password for their use only. Below is a portion of the User Agreement for using the software.

Access: Certain portions of the Website and certain Content will be accessible only to users previously identified to SutureHealth who meet criteria established by SutureHealth (“Authorized Users”) based on information provided by them or on their behalf. You may not access such portions of the Website or such Content unless you meet all criteria of an Authorized User. You may not permit any other person to access the Website or the Content using your user identification, name or password. All information you provide to SutureHealth must be current, accurate, and complete.

Consent to Electronic Signatures
• Each user who is allowed to sign electronically consents to the use of electronic signatures. The user is made aware that they are electronically signing on the user interface. Below is a portion of the User Agreement for using the software.

Consent to Electronic Signatures: YOU CONSENT TO USE OF ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES WITH DOCUMENTS RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT. YOU ARE AWARE THAT SUCH CONSENT TO THE USE OF ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES IS APPLICABLE TO TRANSACTIONS CONSUMMATED USING THE WEBSITE. YOU MAY WITHDRAW YOUR CONSENT TO USE OF ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES BY PROVIDING A NON-ELECTRONIC SIGNED WRITING WITHDRAWING SUCH CONSENT TO SUTUREHEALTH.

Validation and Audit of Electronic Signatures
Validation: Each signature SutureSign is applied only after authentication of the user by their username and password. The date is automatically applied on the date of signing.

Transactional Audit: With SutureSign, each “signature event” is associated with a particular document and corresponds to a unique eSign ID. The relationship between the signer, the document, and the signature event is tracked and stored in the database to provide audit capabilities while preventing any attempts to fraudulently apply an eSign ID to a non-matching Document ID.

Reconstruction of Records
• All documents are stored in the database, and signed documents can be reconstructed in the event of system failure.

Security Safeguards
• System is password-protected and encrypts all data in motion with Secure Sockets Layer encryption for site security.
