Doctors in Indiana take note

triPRACTIX, a medical systems integrator in Indiana, has deployed a medical portal using Juniper Networks, that allows anywhere, anytime access to medical information for physicians throughout Northeastern Indiana. In addition, the system appears to be tablet pc enabled.

From the Juniper Networks press release, via Genetic Engineering News:


Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR) today announced that triPRACTIX, a leading medical systems integrator based in Fort Wayne, IN, has deployed the Juniper Networks Secure Access SSL VPN, integrated firewall/IPsec VPN, and NetScreen Security Manager to create a secure, multi-state portal that provides accurate anytime, anywhere access to medical information for physicians throughout Northeastern Indiana. Using a simple tablet PC, doctors using the triPRACTIX broadband network can now take advantage of Juniper’s security platforms to exchange information such as medical records and lab results, while securely accessing various medical applications.

“It’s a distinct competitive advantage for our company to offer all of the applications a physician office uses in one portal. However, with the legal ramifications of HIPAA looming over their heads, the ability for our clients to use these applications securely was paramount,” said Todd Plesko, CEO of triPRACTIX. “This architecture gives our clients the ability to control security and to explicitly say who they want coming into their network, thus satisfying both requirements. That’s a tremendous advantage for them and us.”
