WINK Practice Management Software & EHR has gone to great lengths to ensure that your practice’s health records are safe and secure in our database. Ensuring that your customers’ health records are encrypted and accessible only to approved personnel is a founding principle on which our software was designed.
Legal counsel has been retained so as to ensure that our methods and policies are fully compliant with all legal doctrine related to management of electronic health records (EHR).
