AMSANT secures e-health records in remote Australia with DIGIPASS

Amsant

The Aboriginal Medical Service Alliance Northern Territory (AMSANT) is the peak body for Aboriginal community controlled health services in the Northern Territory. The organization provides advocacy and support services to its twenty-six independent members who provide primary health care services to Aboriginal people. To assist its members, AMSANT developed a shared IT infrastructure service secured by DIGIPASS technology, enabling health care providers in very remote areas to securely access via the Internet their applications and sensitive medical records anywhere, anytime.

Objective

Provide health service providers in the Northern Territory with an easy to manage security solution to secure remote online access over the Internet to applications and patients' health records.

Challenge

Remoteness and extreme environmental conditions, combined with an unreliable and unstable telecommunications infrastructure constantly challenged the continuity of services. IT capabilities and support in very remote areas were virtually non-existent and low budgets are a major constraint.

Solution

CS2 developed a low cost end-to-end solution integrating VASCO's DIGIPASS technology to secure remote online access to AMSANT's e-health system. Redundancy is guaranteed through terrestrial and satellite connections. CS2 integrated NetLeverage's virtual desktop technology replacing previous desktop infrastructures hence severely reducing local support requirements and costs. All data and applications are centralized, securely stored and managed by ac3's data center in Sydney.
