Frequently Asked Questions

What are the appropriate password management steps?
Appropriate password management is an important part of your practice’s security strategy. Here are three steps you can take to protect your EHR:
  1. Always use a strong password. For advice on selecting strong passwords, you can review the National Institute of Standards and Technology Guide to Enterprise Password Management, available at http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/dra....

  2. Use different passwords for your email and Practice Fusion accounts. This is a general best practice for all of your various accounts on the web.

  3. Change your passwords regularly.

If someone hacks my email, can they also have unauthorized access to my PF account?
This question highlights the importance of appropriate password management, as outlined above.

Even if your primary email account was compromised, the attacker would not be able to reset your Practice Fusion password without your confirmation by phone, provided you have set up a unique password for your Practice Fusion account.
